Homemade ice cream has never been easier! Just pour four simple ingredients into a jar, refrigerate, and then churn. This vanilla maple ice cream is so good– perfect for eating on its own or for pairing with warm brownies, skillet cookies, or fresh apple pie!



  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract


  1. Combine all the ingredients in a quart mason jar, then refrigerate for at least four hours.
  2. Pour the ice cream mix into the frozen canister of your ice cream maker and churn for 20-25 minutes until the ice cream comes together.


This mix can be made a day or two ahead and kept in the freezer until you’re ready.

You can add various add-ins while the ice cream churns (nuts, chocolate chips, marshmallows, etc).
