You don't need an ice cream maker for this easy ice cream recipe. Make a batch at home with just a few simple ingredients and a quart jar!
This easy ice cream recipe is the full-fat version because lower fat milk doesn't work the same. I'll provide some alternatives later in the article, but we strongly recommend following the recipe.
When the fat mixes with air, it helps create small pockets in the ice cream. It makes the texture smoother. In fact, a scoop of ice cream is about half air.
