Easy Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream

I am attracted to recipes with the word “easy” in the title, not because I don’t enjoy cooking, but sometimes life just calls for easy. I have had this one sitting in my recipe box for ages. You can make it as written or add your favorite flavorings. If you want to add fresh fruit, just reduce the half-and-half to one cup and add in 1 cup of pureed fruit of your choice—blueberries, peaches and cherries all sound good to me.

2 cups half-and-half
2 cups whipping cream
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
2 Tablespoons vanilla extract.
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, mixing well. Freeze in an ice cream maker by following the manufacturer’s directions. Before eating, allow ice cream to “ripen” in your refrigerator’s freezer, if desired. Freeze any leftovers.

Try it with this cake if you are feeling adventurous.
