Summer doesn’t fully kick in until you find yourself taking a couple weekly trips to the local ice cream shop.  It’s exciting to check out the possible new flavors that occasionally arrives, the cool color-changing spoons and maybe even bump into a friend or two and find out all about their fun vacation adventures. (That’s not me!) I am the mom behind the wheel driving every other day to the local ice cream shop, after a marathon of begging which sometimes appears to be rehearsed, synchronized or even along with a warm hug (nowadays rare), in another words… They will pull whatever trick out of the hat to get me to say YES!

Say hello to the innovative mother who will (almost) always find a middle ground to accommodate everyone’s wishes.  That’s what this, very delicious recipe by the way, is all about.  So the trips to the local ice cream shop have lessened and so did the over spending and over indulging (have you seen all the candy toppings lately?)

Vanilla ice cream is by far my kid’s favorite.  Yes, sometimes they really want the “Black Cow” which by the way is purple.  But so what? Last I remember my car was driving itself to the ice cream shop and this no longer happens.  The kids loooooved this vanilla ice cream recipe.  They asked me to make more when the container was half way full and I even heard one say “it’s the best ice cream ever”.  This truly is the greatest reward (heart melting emoji here).

This vanilla ice cream recipe was a lot of fun to make and super easy too.  Besides waiting for it to properly freeze, it will only take you 10 very quick minutes to make this.  A good idea is to mix it at night so it’s perfectly ready the next day.   If you like a creamy and smooth ice cream I think you will enjoy this recipe.
