It may not be much more economical, but I can control what goes in it, and get some great flavors that can't always be found in the stores. Peanut butter with peanut butter cups? Thin Mints? Pumpkin Cinnamon? No problem!
Today I went for simple - French Vanilla made using this recipe.
I used an amazing new ingredient to my pantry - Vanilla Bean Paste. Tons of tiny black flecks give the ice cream that authentic look, and WOW does it taste good!
If you have a novelty homemade ice cream recipe that your family loves and you'd like to share, please let me know!
