I have been on an ice-cream kick lately… to correct myself, on “homemade” ice-cream kick. It is just so easy to make your own, not cheap at all just to warn you guys, but you can definitely taste the difference between homemade and store-bought ice cream.
I don’t know how to explain, it tastes much richer and creamier, and I don’t even have to tell you that you know what you adding in your own ice cream so you can get whatever you would like in it.
We have made so many ice creams in the last few weeks, and we loved each every one of the flavors, so I am sharing one by one. Of course, you can make ice cream without ice cream maker or machine but if you have a machine why would you make without it.

I just don’t know why I waited so long to get one. Like I said, it’s not cheap but my family and I have been enjoying this homemade deliciousness very much.
I googled what is number one ice cream in the USA, and believe it or not, Cookies ‘n’ Cream popped as numero uno. To tell you honestly, I was a bit shocked and totally expected something like the chocolate chip or even plain vanilla or chocolate, but nope, it is Cookies ‘n’ Cream.
I am planning to share many more homemade ice creams with you so stay tuned for berry ice cream, matcha, tropical ice cream, chocolate and, of course, the chocolate chip that I just made last night and LOVEEEED it!!
I gotta tell ya, it was delightful. It is definitely creamy, but it got that bite from cookies although it is not overly sweet at all. I read recipes from instructions and so many calls for 2 cups of sugar.
YES!!! 2 cups! I find it a bit too sweet considering that we are adding cookies as well so I use only one cup of sugar for my base on this amount of liquid.
