Are you in need of vanilla ice cream, but just don't want to go to the ice cream shop every time? How about if you don't have an ice cream maker? Or you don't want refined sugar in it, either? There is a quick and easy solution for all of those needs!


  1. Mix 12 ounces (1.5 cups) of heavy whipping cream with 12 ounces (1.5 cups) of milk of choice. Any milk will work, but whole milk is recommended for optimal taste. Cook the mixture on medium heat and bring to a boil.
  2. Once the mixture has boiled, add seven egg yolks. Lower the heat from medium to low heat. Mix consistently with a whisk for about two minutes until all ingredients have been evenly blended. Do not allow the mixture to boil again.
  3. Remove the mixture from the stove and immediately add 7 ounces (5/6 cup) of honey.
    • Another idea is to substitute one third of the honey with powdered coconut sugar. To make powered coconut sugar, grind the coconut sugar in a coffee grinder until it has become a powder.
  4. Add one tablespoon of pure vanilla extract to the mixture. Mix it well and let it cool. Then put it in a fridge and let it cool completely for about an hour.
  5. In a mixing bowl, whip 21 ounces (2.5 cups) of heavy whipping cream until soft peaks form. Then, add the vanilla custard mixture to the mixing bowl and mix until well-blended. Both a hand mixer or a stand mixer will work for this.
  6. Transfer the mixture to a glass bowl. Place the bowl inside the freezer and leave it there overnight or for seven to eight hours. In the morning, you will have your vanilla custard! To take it a step further, add any garnish you would like.
