Vanilla Custard Ice Cream

Updated: Aug 1, 2021

The summer is in full swing, which means, ICE CREAM, ICE CREAM and even more ICE CREAM! And you know me, I gotta try new recipes, all the time! So I have been making a few different recipes this week. One of them being this vanilla custard ice cream.

I love how this only takes a handful of ingredients, doesn't require any churning and is totally customisable. My kids love to add their own toppings, which mainly consist of chocolate sauce, sprinkles, jelly sweets and m&ms. Eventually I have to take away all the toppings because the ratio for ice cream to toppings becomes 1:1. I mean, I don't totally disagree with this. I love toppings too. But sometimes you just gotta take away the chocolate sauce.

Make your own creamy vanilla custard ice cream at home!
