Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, combine the eggnog, half-and-half, heavy cream, sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla. Pour the ice cream base into an ice cream maker and freeze following the manufacturer's directions. Transfer the frozen eggnog ice cream to a chilled bowl; cover and place in a freezer for at least 2 hours.

 

 

Notes:

 

If you’ve never made ice cream before, this is a great recipe for a beginner. The base, or the mixture that you add to your ice cream maker, is super easy to make. Some recipes call for cooking a custard before blending in the rest of the ingredients; but, this easy to make Eggnog Ice Cream requires absolutely no cooking; so, all you have to do is combine a few ingredients in a bowl, and it’s ready for the ice cream maker.

 

When you get ready to freeze the base for your Eggnog Ice Cream, make sure that you don’t overfill the freezer bowl. This recipe makes almost 6 cups of the base mixture, so unless you have an extra-large ice cream maker, you’re probably going to have to freeze it in two batches. I usually freeze half of the mixture, and keep the other half in the refrigerator until the next day. This gives me time to clean the bowl of my ice cream maker, then put it back in the freezer overnight. It’s important to make sure that the freezer bowl is completely frozen before you begin making your ice cream. Of course, if you have a different type of ice cream maker, just read the manufacturer’s directions to find out how much liquid you can freeze at one time.

 

 

I have this Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker. I actually really like it, and it does a phenomenal job making all kinds of frozen yogurt, ice cream, and sorbet. I keep the bowl in the back of my freezer, so it’s always ready to make a yummy frozen treat.
