    Homemade Ice Cream

    One of my favorite desserts to make is homemade ice cream. I especially love to make it for my family during the Summer, but let’s be honest – we love to eat it all year long. :) This homemade vanilla ice cream is super easy to make and contains NO eggs! I combined it with Reese’s peanut butter cups (my favorite candy), but this ice cream tastes absolutely delicious without the Reese’s as well. Feel free to mix in any of  your favorite toppings to make the ultimate treat!
