There are many brands of vanilla ice cream available in market. But the homemade is totally different in terms of flavor, taste and texture.

As I said earlier, this is eggless vanilla ice cream recipe. Meaning this is not custard based ice cream where egg yolks are used. Rather this one is known as Philadelphia style ice cream.

This basic vanilla ice cream is rich, creamy and smooth. Store bought ones are smooth and light but not rich or creamy unless you are having it at local ice cream parlor. Since this is rich ice cream, two scoops of it is more than enough per person.

Even though it is made without ice cream maker, there are no ice crystals found in it.

Keep in mind that this is made at home. We are not adding any stabilizers here which are always present in store-bought one. Because of the absence of stabilizers, this homemade vanilla ice cream will melt faster.

5) Take remaining milk in a wide and thick bottom pan. Turn the heat on medium.

7) Once it starts simmering, add sugar and mix well.

8) Let it simmer till it thickens slightly (for about 10-12 minutes). Do scrap the side and bottom of the pan using spatula every now and then. We don’t want the milk to burn and stick to the pan.

10) Also add milk powder paste and mix.

13) Remove the thick, sweetened mix mixture into a bowl and let it cool completely.

14) As it cools it will thicken more. If it looks lumpy after cooling down, you can use wire whisk or hand mixer or blender to break the lumps and make smooth batter.

16) And mix well.

19) Now add vanilla paste or vanilla extract (whatever you are using). NOTE: if using vanilla bean, then you can scrape the seeds and add to the milk while it was simmering. You can also throw the pod as well into simmering milk and remove it later on.

20) Stir well to combine.

21) Pour the mixture into shallow container. Here I am using loaf pan.

22) Cover the surface using plastic wrap and make sure that plastic is touching the ice cream mixture. This ways ice crystals will no form on top. Then cover with lid.

23) Pop in the freeze and let it set for 3-4 hours. Within this time, it should be just set still soft.

24) Remove the container from the freezer, make big slices or cubes. Add it to the blender.

At the time of serving, remove the container from the freezer and let it stand for 2 minutes. Then scoop the vanilla ice cream and serve into individual bowl.

Serving suggestion: Serve a scoop or two as a dessert after meal. Or enjoy it anytime of the day. You can drizzle any fruit sauce or chocolate sauce, butterscotch sauce or magic hard shell on top. Vanilla ice cream can be used in making falooda or milkshake like vanilla milkshakecashew-fig milkshake. Have a scoop of it with warm brownie or pie.

Notes:

  • I recommend to use whole milk or full fat milk. I have tried with 2% milk and it gave me good results but still I prefer the one made from full fat milk.
  • Cornstarch slurry will help to thicken the milk faster.
  • Here I have used full fat milk powder. This makes the ice cream more creamier. You can use non fat milk powder too.
  • Here I have used vanilla paste which gave me more intense vanilla flavor. Yes you can use PURE vanilla extract instead. I said ‘pure’ not imitation one which may leave the bitter aftertaste. If you can use vanilla bean, then it is best (instructions included above).
