With the warmer temperatures, one of our favorite treats is ice cream. We love going out and getting ice cream, but there is just something fun about making your own. Today I am going to share our favorite recipe. It is delicious Old Fashioned Vanilla Ice Cream. This recipe is a base for all our other flavors but we mostly like eating it as is…its that good! It’s a pretty straightforward recipe and it is so delicious! Ingredients Instructions
Normally, I am not a vanilla ice cream fan, but I cannot resist this homemade version. Yum! Plus, everyone loves it and can add in whatever toppings or mixtures they want to customize it. It’s fun to see what each family member comes up with. To start you’ll want to gather all your ingredients and your ice cream maker.
My son decided he wanted to make some fun confetti cones so we headed to walmart to get all our ice cream ingredients complete with sprinkles and Wet-Naps to keep this fun project nice and tidy. In many stores these are near the napkins, but at my store they were near the beauty aisle.
We made our ice cream the night before so it would be ready to go the next day. After the recipe has chilled so its frozen you can scoop it into your cone and prepare to dip! We filled a ramekin with sprinkles and my son went to town. It was a little bit messy but he thought it was so fun to roll it around and coat it with sprinkles. Go figure, kids love sprinkles.
Once you have it all coated you are ready to enjoy!
I love that this has become a simple and fun family tradition. I know it is moments like this that I will always remember and I hope my kids do too.
Yep, it was a bit messy, but that is what the Wet-Naps were for!
Wet-Nap products were great to wipe the melting ice cream up so my ‘neat-freakness’ didn’t have to ruin the moment worrying about the mess. These are softer and stronger than before and moisturize with aloe. Be sure to head HERE before you make your ice cream to get your coupon for 55 cents off you next purchase of any Wet-Nap product (while supplies last)! Trust me, you’ll be so glad you have these on hand!
