There's nothing like enjoying a scoop of vanilla ice cream over the summer, as it's not only refreshing but it also has an incredible flavor. That's why at Great Harvest in Austin we would like to share an easy way to prepare this delicious treat at home.

Vanilla Ice Cream Recipe


  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • Preparation
Halve the vanilla beans lengthwise and remove the seeds. Now, place them on a pan  on low heat and add the milk and cream. Allow it to cook for about 15 minutes and let it cool. Meanwhile, mix in a bowl the egg yolks with the sugar and add the milk mixture until combined.

Almost Ready

Heat your custard on low heat for about 15 minutes and don't forget to stir it frequently. Allow it to cool and follow the instructions of your ice cream maker. To finish you can add berries, chocolate sprinkles or any other topic you like. Remember that investing in an ice cream maker is a great idea that will make things easier. Also, summer isn't over yet and you can still enjoy a great recipe that brings together all the flavors of this season, so be sure to read our guide to prepare spaghetti puttanesca.
