Summer is fast approaching, so plan early for refreshing frozen treats before it gets too hot. Whether you want a manual ice cream maker or an electric ice cream machine, you can have a big batch of freshly made ice cream in as little as 30 minutes!
You can use a few simple ingredients like milk, cream, sugar, and eggs to mix a delicious, creamy frozen treat. Then, mix in your favorite pureed fruit or other mix-ins to customize it for your sweet tooth. My personal favorite is butter pecan with toasted nuts and browed butter, sinful and decadent.
