Vanilla Bean Ice Cream

Hey guys,

Every time I go to the store and buy ice cream, my go to flavor is vanilla bean. A couple of months ago I bought an ice cream maker and have been using it like crazy, so you know I had to make a vanilla bean ice cream! After making it I don’t think I will ever buy store bought vanilla bean ice cream again! This recipe I created definitely tops the store bought one any day!

Until next time,

Vanilla Bean Ice Cream


2 Cups of Milk

2 Cups of Heavy Cream

1/3 Cup of Light Brown Sugar

1 1/2 Cup of Cane Sugar

1 Vanilla Bean (seeds scraped out)

5 Egg Yolks

1 Tsp Vanilla Extract

1 Pinch of Salt



Pour your milk and heavy cream into a medium saucepan. As you are whisking together your milk and cream, you want to add in your light brown sugar, 3/4 cup of your pure cane sugar, your seeds from the vanilla bean and your salt. Heat all of these ingredients over medium heat and keep stirring them. You want to bring these mixture to a boil. While waiting for your mixture to boil, you want to mix together your egg yolks and the remaining pure cane sugar in a medium mixing bowl. About 2 minutes of mixing, when your egg mixture is thick you are done with the mixing. Now your milk and cream mixture should be done. Next you will take 1/2 cup of your heated milk and cream mixture and add it to the egg mixture in the mixing bowl, you want to do this 2 times. What you are doing right now is preparing the eggs so they will not cook too fast. After adding in 1 cup of your milk and cream mixture to your egg mix you can combine all ingredients into the medium saucepan. You then want to heat the mixture over low heat until it thickens. Do not boil this mixture, you will only cook it over low heat for a couple of minutes. After your mixture is done you want to let it cool down, once cooled down cover the mixture and refrigerate it for about 2 hours. Next take your refrigerated mixture out and add it to your ice cream maker. Once churned in your ice cream maker, freeze the ice cream for about 3 hours. Then after 3 hours your vanilla bean ice cream is ready to be served!

Enjoy!! : )
