July is national ice cream month!
Here the month is half over and I'm just now posting my first ice cream recipe for the year. I have however been posting homemade popsicle recipes like crazy over on my Instagram feed if you're interested. I will work on getting those popsicle recipes put on the site, in the meantime here's the recipe for this scrumptious creation.
Biscoff Ice Cream
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1 1/8 cups granulated sugar
3 cups heavy cream
1 Tbsp pure vanilla extract
Seeds from half a vanilla bean
1/2 cup chunky Biscoff spread
I guess I should start off by saying that you will need an ice cream maker for this recipe. Kinda obvious but just in case... :) and you will need to follow the individual operating instructions specific to your machine.
Okay lets get started! This is honestly a basic recipe and pretty simple where ice cream is concerned.
In a medium bowl add the whole milk and sugar. Whisk for about 1-2 minutes until the sugar has dissolved. Add the half cup Biscoff spread to milk mixture and begin whisking until the Biscoff is fully incorporated. Add in both the vanilla and vanilla seeds. I like to incorporated vanilla beans when possible, but if you do not have any it's not a big deal. Just increase the vanilla extract by 1tsp.
Stir in the heavy cream and pour mixture into ice cream maker. Turn on and let mix for about 25- 30 minutes. Texture should be soft and creamy when done. Enjoy immediately or transfer to freezer safe container and let freeze longer.
And if you're feeling extra adventurous you can jazz up some ordinary waffle cones to go along with your homemade ice cream!
