My go-to treat is always ice cream.  And, my favorite flavor is classic vanilla.

No bells.  No whistles.  Just good, old fashioned vanilla.  I’m kinda plain like that!

Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream - It Is a Keeper

This recipe is incredibly easy to make using an ice cream maker.  This one is my favorite.

There are only a few simple ingredients that you mix together.  Then let the mixture chill for a bit in the fridge.

Last, just give it a twirl in your ice cream maker.  After about 15 minutes, you have the best homemade vanilla ice cream.

I really doesn’t get any easier!

I always store my homemade ice cream in this cute ice cream container.  It’s the perfect size and keeps your ice cream fresh.  Plus, I love the easy to remove, silicone lid!
