How to Make Ice Cream with Three Ingredients

Hello, easy! You’ll love this step-by-step breakdown on how to make homemade ice cream.

Besides the three simple ingredients each recipe calls for, you’ll need a freezer, a bowl and a mixing utensil. Both an electric mixer and a spoon will work equally well. Use whichever you have on hand.

Spend about 5 minutes whipping all your ingredients together.

Then, pour the mixture into a freezer-safe container and cover it with a lid or plastic wrap. 

Next, let your ice cream freeze overnight or for at least 8 hours. 

Remove the ice cream from the freezer 10 minutes before serving until it is soft enough to scoop. 

Serve simply in a bowl, or get wild with classic sundae fixings like whipped cream and chocolate sauce. You could also take these homemade ice cream recipes and make ice cream sandwiches by arranging two cookies on top and bottom of a big scoop.

So yummy! Save these recipes and add them to your meal plan app today so that you can stay on track with family-friendly meal prep!

Now that you know what’s for dessert consider pairing it with Pineapple Teriyaki Pork Chops for dinner.
