  • Prep Time


  • Total Time


  • Servings



  • 2

    cups milk of choice or nondairy creamer or coconut milk (see note below)

  • ¼

    cup sweetener of choice: such as pure maple syrup, brown sugar, or xylitol for sugar-free

  • pinch stevia or 1 extra tablespoon sugar

  • teaspoon salt

  • 1

    and ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • optional ingredients for whatever flavor you desire


Mix all ingredients (except optional ingredients, if they are chunky) in a dish. If you have an ice-cream maker: simply transfer to your ice cream maker and watch the magic! (I have a Cuisinart, and it took 12 to 14 minutes to turn the liquid into ice cream. Warning: Make sure your ice cream maker’s base is completely frozen before use, or it will NOT work!!) You can eat it straight from the machine, or freeze a few hours for firmer texture. Homemade ice cream is best the day it’s made, but you can technically thaw it out and it will keep for a few weeks.
