Real Vanilla Bean Ice Cream
Maybe you've never seen a real vanilla bean. Maybe you grew up on vanilla flavoring. Don't be ashamed. I did too :p Here is your chance to splurge and get the real deal. Pure and fresh vanilla bean is a taste you need to experience. Go for it!
- Don't substitute vanilla bean for vanilla flavoring. I need you to be an adult and get the real thing..lol
2 cups heavy cream
2 cups half and half
3/4 cup sugar
2 vanilla beans
1 tbsp. Tastic sweet*
- Using the tip of a sharp knife slight the middle of the vanilla bean. Use the blade, scrape open the vanilla bean and gather the black beans on the knife. I did a quick video on my Instagram spice page @tasticspice
- Combine all ingredients, stirring to dissolve sugar completely. Fill cylinder of ice cream maker no more than two-thirds full; freeze according to manufacturer's directions. (Refrigerate any remaining mixture until ready to freeze.) Serve immediately or store in covered containers in freezer.
*Tastic Sweet is available HERE
