With a ridiculously easy homemade ice cream recipe like this at my disposal, I should probably just go ahead and toss my swimsuit out the window.

Two ingredients. Two! And six hours later, you have creamy homemade ice cream. I'd like to take a moment to apologize to my thighs... Maybe next summer we'll try out that bikini thing. But right now, this ice cream is winning the mental tug-of-war of delicious desserts vs. diet and exercise.


The beautiful thing about this recipe (also known as the most fantastic, amazing, genius ice cream recipe ever) is that you can make the base, then divide it up into as many different flavors as you want. Want half mint chip, half cookies 'n' cream? Go for it. Want one-third cookie dough, two-thirds peanut butter? That's fine too. The world is your oyster. (And oysters are always better when they're actually ice cream.)
