I've found that I often prefer a lighter ice cream without all the heavy cream and eggs. Here is a recipe I found for a simple ice milk that can be tweaked with variations (add your favorite fruit, nut, etc.) This originally had more sugar, but I found it too sweet, and now the sugar matches this similar recipe for "Tahitian Vanilla Ice Milk" on this site. Cooking time is freezing time.
- Combine milk, sugar, and vanilla in a medium bowl. Stir till sugar is dissolved.
- If using Ice Cream Machine: Add milk mixture to an ice cream machine and process 20 minutes or until mixture thickens. Pour into tupperware and freeze 8 hours or overnight. Consistency may improve by stirring every 4 hours or so until fully frozen.
- If not using Ice Cream Machine: Pour into shallow freezer-proof dish and put in freezer. Stir every 2-4 hours once crystals form. Follow above directions for freezing.
