So, you know that whole two-ingredient ice cream train that everybody's been getting on lately? Well, I FINALLY hopped on. And it's pretty blasphemous that it took me this long.
It is now the only thing that I want to make for the rest of my life. And not just because it's crazy easy and crazy delicious, but because the varieties are literally endless.
I chose cookies and cream as the flavor for my first test batch because that is my brother's favorite ice cream and I love to torture him when he's making a clear effort to eat healthier. My plan backfired though because he had the willpower to only eat a scoop or two while I had ...more than I wish to disclose.
But it's all for the sake of quality control, right?
Anyway, if you thought that not having an ice cream maker was the worst thing ever, I hope now you'll sleep better knowing that an ice cream maker is in no way necessary for fabulous homemade ice cream. All you need is an electric hand mixer, a spoon, and a freezer safe container. Also, you need an awesome evil laugh for when people ask how you made this delicious concoction without an ice cream maker. Mwahahaha!
