DIY Delicious: Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream
I’m a Texas girl… born and raised in Houston. About an hour outside of Houston in a small town called Brenham is the Blue Bell Ice Cream Creamery. This creamery produces the BEST ice cream IN THE WORLD! Yes, I said it… BLUE BELL ICE CREAM IS THE BEST ICE CREAM IN THE WORLD! (lol… I know all my East Coast/ Turkey Hill Creamery lovers will disagree )
Growing up we’d make an annual field trip to visit the creamery. They would give us a tour of the grounds and show us how they made all their yummy flavors. They’d also show us how we could make our own ice cream at home. Recently with all the extreme LA heat, I’ve been craving some homemade ice cream. Below is a yummy ice cream recipe that’s sure to be a delicious DIY treat at your next Summer gathering and you likely already have most of the ingredients in your pantry.
Shopping List: Gallon size resealable plastic bags, quart size resealable plastic bags, whole milk, sugar, vanilla extract, sea salt, ice
Note: The bag of ice is very cold, obviously! Wear a pair of winter gloves to protect your hands while shaking up your ice cream.
A homemade ice cream DIY station adds an interactive touch to your 4th of July party! Add a some red and blue toppings to your station and allow everyone to personalize their ice cream. Fresh strawberries and blueberries are healthy topping alternative, but sprinkles and chocolate syrup are always a treat!
