    Nothing compares to homemade ice cream. My grocery store just got in a bunch of ice cream makers and every time I walk by them, I am so tempted to buy one, but if I did, I know I would be making ice cream constantly.

    I make mine with fat-free greek yogurt and lots of fruit. But every once in awhile, I have to have a little vanilla. This looks great!

    I've been dabbling with new ice cream recipes this week (first time to make homemade!), so this post came at the perfect time! And I love that there aren't any eggs – I've been heating all of my ingredients and then chilling, and then churning. That takes a while! Thanks for sharing, and I'm loving your blog – wonderful recipes and insights! πŸ™‚

    Goodness, I want homemade ice cream right now. This post comes in perfect time with Memorial Day and summer. I have a good feeling that once I get settled in my new home (and get that ice cream maker attachment to my blender) that this ice cream is going to become a staple in our home.

    Thanks for sharing!

    can you substitute the whole milk for fat free and then the heavy cream for low-fat milk? Or could you use greek yogurt instead of the cream?

    Hannah – I'm sorry, I'm not sure I understand your question. Substituting lower fat milk for the whole milk is possible – your final product might not be very creamy though. You could also substitute whole milk or half and half for the heavy cream, but again your final product's texture will be changed. As for using yogurt – you might have better luck finding a frozen yogurt recipe! This one looks like it might produce a nice result (with adaptions made from comments) – http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/creamy-vanilla-froze

      Hi Colleen. I'm sorry to say I've had no experience with any Nordicware ice cream makers. I was able to find this website though – http://www.ehow.com/how_7323266_nordic-ware-ice-c… – not sure if that matches the machine you have but I hope it helps.

    Hello, Tessa!! I have a question about your french vanilla ice cream recipe (in your “Cookies and Cream” book). I’d love to make it, but is there a way to substitute the vanilla bean?

    I’ve only made one ice cream recipe in my new Cuisinart, yet it flopped. πŸ™‚ After reading your tips + tricks, I’m ready to give homemade ice cream another go!!!

    Thank you so much!

      You can use vanilla bean paste! Regular vanilla extract will work too, it just won’t provide the same intensity of flavor.
