Why does vanilla ice cream always seem to get the reputation of being boring and plain?
While I have created my fair share of homemade ice cream recipes with unusual flavors and combinations, I always come back to creamy, comforting vanilla.
There is something pure and familiar about it... like your mama's Sunday pot roast or your favorite quilt.
But while vanilla ice cream can be nostalgic and simple, we also seem to forget that it the single most flavor of ice cream that gets to have all the fun. ;)
I mean, think of hot fudge sundaes piled high with whipped cream and topped with a cherry.
Or how about a slice of warm homemade apple pie topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream? The ice cream starts to melt and meld with the apples and cinnamon creating a "sauce" you just have to slurp from the plate after you have ate the last bite of pie.
And milkshakes... don't even get me started on the milkshakes!
About a trillion different milkshake flavors start with a few scoops of simple, "plain" vanilla ice cream.
Today I am sharing with you all my recipe for a super easy and creamy 4 Ingredient No Churn Vanilla Ice Cream. That is right, folks! No ice cream maker is required to make this classic frozen treat.
And just 4 ingredients??
Could I have possibly made it any easier for you all to Take Back Vanilla? ;)
