Hmm.. I don’t if it’s a good time to post an ice cream recipe :D
But in my opinion, there is no wrong time to eat ice cream (tell me you agree this time) :P
Getting an ice cream machine from husband is a great investment. That way I can make any kind of flavours I want. And so far, my favourite ice cream flavour is orange, raspberry ripple, chocolate mint and violet. The orange flavour is pretty special. I have a favourite ice cream place in my hometown, Balikpapan. It is a quite fancy place, and that place has been labelled as a “only-rich-people-can-eat-there” (disagree with that). Because all the ice creams are homemade and using “real” sugar, so me and my sisters never get sick from eating ice cream as much as we want from that place. And everytime I go there, orange flavour is a must! Just loved it!
So, last year when I finally had chance to have a short holiday in Balikpapan with husband and my daughter, I dragged my husband to that ice cream place. I’ve been bragging about how nice the cream is and bla bla bla…
And the day when we visited that place, it didn’t look so “rich”. Dark and messy and not nice at all. And they didn’t have that many different flavours of ice cream anymore. Instead, they started selling lots of different types of breads. A BIG BIG BIG disappointment after bragging so much to my husband. Embarrassing! Since then I wanted to make my own orange ice cream. But I haven’t found the right recipe yet, that’s why I’m sharing my vanilla ice cream instead :D
When I found my orange ice cream recipe, I’ll definitely share it with you :)
This is the very basic of ice cream recipe. And since I don’t like the custard method, I’m using the exact same recipe as my sweet potato ice cream here. Skip the sweet potato and add vanilla seeds from 1 vanilla pod or use 1/2 tsp organic dried vanilla seeds (that’s what I did) and you’ll get a rich vanilla ice cream.
This recipe will make 1 litre ice cream
- 1 can sweet condensed milk
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 2 cups milk
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp organic dried vanilla seeds
- Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
- And pour the mixture into the ice cream machine.
- Follow the instruction of your ice cream machine.
