Easy vanilla ice-cream

 I made very easy ice-cream with the kids yesterday. The kids loved it, with lots of sprinkles on! I dont have an ice-cream maker, so we had to stir by hand every 45 minutes. Even so, it was still very easy and only has 4 ingredients, perfect for children.
Excuse the rubbish photo! I didnt realisethere was shadow until after the kids had eaten all the ice cream!
Serves 3 children

120 ml semi-skimmed milk
50g white sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
120 ml double cream

In one bowl, mix the milk, suagr & vanilla extract. In another bowl, whisk the double cream until thick.  Add to the milk mixture & combine. If you have an ice-cream maker, pour into the bowl & churn as per instructions.

If doing by hand, tip the mixture into a freezer-proof tub & place into teh freezer. Ever 40/45 minutes, mix the ice cream well, breaking up all ice crystals until smooth. Repeat until the mixture is completely frozen. Serve with plenty of sprinkles!

  1. I've necer tried making my own ice cream before but I must give it a go. My mum has an ice cream maker but I like the idea of the old style way. Theres also a way to make it that involves using 2 tin cans and alot of shaking but I cant quite remember all about it
