A special thanks to our featured foodie contributor Kristy from Mommy Hates Cooking for this great post on making your own ice cream. Super fun!
Do you love homemade ice cream? I do, love it! There is just one problem though that I run into when making homemade ice cream. I have a fear of using eggs in my homemade ice cream. What if they are not cooked all the way? What if there is a recall on those eggs?
Those fears go through our minds when using raw foods in meals. I have overcome that fear by making an egg free homemade vanilla ice cream. Not only is it egg free, but also low fat. I feel much better about having that same creamy taste with fewer calories and fat, plus no eggs!
Sound Delicious? It is, now it’s your turn to make some too.
Recipe: Low Fat Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream
