Homemade Ice Cream


I broke out my ice cream maker today for the first time in over a year. My easy standard is a banana-cashew, but today I had almond meal on hand, so what came out was Banana-Almond-Caramel. Yummy! Can't wait!

The cream alone for a batch of ice cream is about three dollars, so I don't really think I'm saving money on this DIY, as one might with bread. But it's fun, and I get to experiment with as many combinations as I can think up. I'm too lazy to make a custard so I haven't gotten into the chocolates, but the fruit possibilities and add-ins are never-ending.


What grocery items do you try to make at home from scratch? What are your reasons--for fun, to save money, for nutrition? Please feel free to join the conversation on the blog's comments section.
