No Machine Vanilla Bean Buttermilk Ice Cream

 This no machine vanilla bean buttermilk ice cream is out of this world delicious. Smooth and luscious. A bit different from the ordinary ice cream we are all used to. Give this easy recipe a try and enjoy!

 

I am sure after reading the title of the recipe you are wondering “what is that girl talking about?! Buttermilk ice cream?”

This recipe is for anyone that loves frozen yogurt or the new trendy “tart” ice cream from shops that seem to be springing up on every corner here on Long Island.

I know you will love this ice cream because it only has a few ingredients and is really easy to make.

This is a great way to enjoy fresh homemade ice cream without having to go out and buy an ice cream maker.

I serve this with a few cookies or a dark piece of chocolate.

Have fun with it by scooping it into some cute little dessert dishes. A few little scoops are all you’ll need of this new refreshingly tangy ice cream.

Change this around for different flavors by adding in some cocoa powder and some chocolate chips for the best no churn chocolate chip ice cream.

Sometimes we add strawberries and blueberries. The color is vibrant and so is the flavor from the star of this recipe, buttermilk.

However you serve this wonderful treat, enjoy every spoonful!

Recipe note: I made this ice cream a few times and took a few different photos. Some batches were made with the vanilla bean and the other times when I ran out I used vanilla extract. So, you’ll see the specs of vanilla bean in the first photo and a few others. The ice cream tastes delicious either way. Also, sometimes the ice cream seems to look like French vanilla with a more yellow color to it. Not sure if this is from the buttermilk, eggs, or the vanilla. 

 

No Machine Vanilla Bean Buttermilk Ice Cream

Yields: 4 small servings or 2 medium servings

 

 

Here is what you will need to make this delicious ice cream

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup low fat buttermilk
  • 5 tablespoon heavy cream
  • 1 vanilla bean or 1 tsp vanilla extract – I use 1 vanilla bean and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract for a rich taste, vanilla beans are found in most grocery stores or online
  • 2 medium to large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons good quality honey
  • 3 tablespoons super fine sugar — it’s worth having in the house and it dissolves nicely in cold beverages, or use granulated sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea or kosher salt

 

This is an easy recipe to make and always comes out delectable

 

Directions:

  1. In a small saucepan, heat the buttermilk on low, and then add the heavy cream. Throw in the vanilla bean, but first split the bean and scrape out and add to the milk mixture. After, add the whole bean to the milk mixture.
  2. Setup a make shift double boiler with warm-to-simmering temperature water. With a hand held mixer and a medium bowl, whisk the eggs until thick and pale in color. Make sure the water does not touch the bowl with the eggs in it.
  3. Now pour some of the milk mixture into the eggs, just a little. Whisk for a few seconds.
  4. Pour the egg mixture back into the saucepan with the milk and bring to a small boil for a couple of seconds. Take off heat and stir.
  5. Have a fine mesh strainer ready with a clean empty bowl. Pour mixture through the strainer.
  6. Mix in the vanilla extract, honey and sugar.
  7. Pour mixture into a freezer safe bowl; I used an old Cool Whip container. Freeze at least 4 hours until nice and firm.
  8. When you take out the ice cream set it aside for a few minutes for it to soften for easy scooping. Mix it around and scoop into bowls or cones to serve.
