Eggless Vanilla Ice Cream !!

Made n Enjoyed
Hello readers,

I scream, you scream
We all scream for ICE CREAM!

That's the usual story in the Dhanecha household even in the smallest glimpse of Sun! For this reason, I invested in an ice cream maker :). It's handy for when you ve got ideas for crazy flavours that just won't be found in the shops - or even when I want to create the perfect indian flavoured treat - saffron and pistachio springs to mind!

I decided to start off easy and test out the maker by making french vanilla ice cream. It's a simple recipe that tested the quality of the ice cream that could be produced. I have to say that I was not dissapointed with the results. The ice cream came out silky, luxurious and very very tasty. The texture was spot on and the recipe ensured that the ice cream was not overly sweet but simply perfect! I know that I won't be making hurried trips to the supermarket anymore as the sun comes out that's for sure!

You will need:-
  • 125 ml full fat milk chilled
  • 125 ml single cream chilled
  • 250 ml double cream chilled
  • 80 g sugar
  • 1 vanilla pod - halved lengthwise
  • Ice Cream Maker

Freeze the freezer bowl as per manufacturer instruction.
Combine milk, single cream and sugar in one bowl till sugar completeley dissolved.
Scrape vanilla seeds from the pod with the tip of a small knife into the milk mixture.
Now combine double cream and milk mixture, place freezer bowl into ice cream machine, turn it on and  transfer liquid into the ice cream maker and follow according to manufacturer's instructions.
My ice cream maker produces soft finish, so for firmer texture I freeze the ice cream mixture into airtight conatainer for at least an hour.
Ice cream is ready to serve.

Enjoy !!
Note:- If you do not have ice cream maker see instructions here.


  1. Do you really need 3 kinds of milk to make vanilla ice cream? I thought just using double cream is sufficient...? :-/

    I think it's time for me to start making some ice creams too, seeing how the heat in Texas is increasing each day!

    1. Nisha..I have adapted this recipe from my maker's recipe book..I suppose you can use only double cream..maybe next time :-)
