This yummy recipe for vanilla ice cream can be made with a machine or without.

Ingredients (serves 4 | makes 1 Litre)

  • 350ml Milk
  • 150gm Sugar
  • 200ml Cream
  • 3 Egg Yolks
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Essence


  1. Freeze the barrel of your ice cream maker overnight.
  2. Blend ingredients together, and store in freezer for 30 minutes for the mixture to become nice and cold. ( I find this helps the mixture churn better)
  3. Turn on your ice cream maker and pour in the mixture. Allow to churn for 20 minutes or until mixture expands and thickens.
  4. HAND MADE METHOD Using the same mixture place in a freezable bowl (metal works best). Place in freezer and beat with a hand mixer every 30 minutes for 3 hours, or until mixture is thick like soft serve.


Perfect for summer, ice cream machines are fantastic for making your own ice cream and frozen yoghurt.
