I am embarrassed to say that I did not know what no-churn ice cream was a thing. And I am equally embarrassed to say it’s almost the end of the month and I am just now finding out the July is national ice cream month.
Talk about being late to the party. Ugh!
Well, I have finally come from under whatever rock I have apparently been living under and now we are here. Heeeey!
Last year I went and bought myself one of those fancy ice cream making machines. And while I intended on making a new flavor every week, I have failed. I have only made ice cream once this year since it has been warm.

This is why I love baking, you do the work, wait a few minutes, and you get your reward a.k.a dessert!
But my overstock of heavy cream and half & half is proof positive of my good intentions. And I am happy to have discovered that no-churn ice cream is a thing, cause it feels a little more attainable.
