Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream

We've been making this vanilla ice cream all summer long!  It's simple, with few ingredients, and delicious.  I never get tired of classic vanilla!  Cuisinart's Simple Vanilla Ice Cream recipe can be found right in the instruction booklet! (we have the ICE-70 Series model)



  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup plus 2 tbs granulated sugar
  • pinch of kosher salt
  • 3 cups heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 tbs vanilla extract


  1. In a medium bowl, use a hand mixer on low speed or whisk to combine the milk, sugar and salt until the sugar is dissolved.  Stir in the heavy cream and vanilla extract.  Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours, or overnight.

  2. In our Cuisinart we let this churn for 20-25 minutes.  We always freeze for at least a couple of more hours immediately after because we prefer a harder consistency for ice cream.
