Everyone knows that kids love cooking and we have found the ultimate, simple vanilla ice cream recipe! Your kids will be begging you to make ice cream with them over and over again!

Before you start, make sure everyone has washed their hands. Don’t forget to pop on an apron to keep clothes clean!

They could even go shopping with you beforehand.


● 2 cups double cream
● 1 cup whole milk
● 3/4 cup granulated sugar
● 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
● A pinch of salt


1. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the heavy cream, whole milk, sugar, vanilla extract, and salt until the sugar is fully dissolved.
2. Pour the mixture into your ice cream maker. Churn according to the manufacturer’s instructions which will usually take about 20-25 minutes.
3. Once the ice cream reaches a soft-serve consistency, transfer it to a lidded container. Freeze for at least 4 hours to firm up.
4. Scoop out your homemade vanilla ice cream into bowls or cones. Feel free to top it with your favourite toppings like chocolate sauce, sprinkles, or fresh fruit.
