Making homemade ice cream can sometimes be a little intimidating. Do I need appliances? Rock salt? Plastic balls to roll around? With this 3 ingredient recipe for No Churn Ice Cream, you only need a sealable container and some room in the freezer. Seriously, that’s it. The recipe is incredible versatile and there’s no limit to the fun goodies you could toss into it. For this recipe, we made Mexican Hot Chocolate Chip, Creamy Vanilla Fleck and Ceylon Cinnamon. Don’t hate on the cinnamon until you try it. I was a hater once, then my father in law showed me the light and now it’s one of my top 3 go-to’s. Read to the bottom where I’ll toss in some other suggestions to get your ice cream brain working.
