3 Ingredient Vanilla Bean Ice Cream – No Churn
Vanilla bean ice cream is easily made at home — three ingredients are all you need! No ice cream machine required. Summer just got much easier.
Ben’s favorite ice cream flavor is vanilla bean. Preferably sprinkled with chocolate chips. Me, I’ll take the vanilla bean ice cream without the chocolate chips. Don’t get me wrong, I love chocolate. I just don’t like hard chunks of chocolate on my ice cream. I prefer chocolate syrup, or even better, homemade hot fudge (it’s THE BEST). I also don’t have anything against chocolate chips. They just have a place. Chocolate chip cookies, for instance. Or in chocolate chip banana bread or cake.
Or by the handful.
But on ice cream? Nah.
But hey! To each their own. I won’t stop him from doing his thing and he doesn’t give me the side eye when I put granola on my vanilla ice cream (it’s so good!). Or this 3-ingredient crunchy oat topping.
Anyway, I’ll leave it up to you in regards to what you top this vanilla bean ice cream with. Although, if you need suggestions, I’d be happy to throw a few (hundred) ideas your way.
The good thing about this ice cream is that it takes literally minutes to make and then you have six hours to think about toppings. You can probably handle it, but again, if you need ideas, I’m here for you.
PS: If you’re unfamiliar with vanilla bean paste, you can buy it on Amazon and it’s so wonderful. It has all the punch of vanilla extract and vanilla beans smushed into one ingredient. Pantry staple, as far as I’m concerned.
