I made this Eggless Vanilla Ice Cream a while back – when my husband and daughter made the peach. It was actually made for my daughter because she doesn’t like peach. Anyway, I chose to hold off posting it because I had just done several ice creams.
This tastes a lot more like old fashioned homemade vanilla than the last vanilla I made, and I really like this much better. It definitely reminds me of the homemade ice cream I ate as a kid, even without the raw eggs. This will be my go to recipe for vanilla from now on. I found the recipe here on the Eagle Brand Milk website and just barely modified it. I looked there because I remembered that the recipe from my childhood used sweetened condensed milk, and back then, that always meant Eagle Brand Milk.
