• Whisk 2 Eggs in a bowl
• Slowly whisk in ¾ cup sugar until frothy and thick
• Mix in 1 Cup Milk (or soy alternative), 2 cups Heavy Cream (or coconut cream), and 2 tsp vanilla extract

If you don’t have an immersion blender:

• Pour all ingredients into Ziploc bag with toppings of your choice
• Remove all air from bag, and place in a second bag to prevent tearing
• Fill a separate larger bag or container halfway with ice
• (Optionally) add salt to that ice
• Add in bag with ice cream mixture, and fill large bag or container with ice to the top
• (Optionally) add more salt to the top ice
Shake bags vigorously for ~15 minutes until the ice cream forms a thick custard

If you have an immersion blender:

• Pour all ingredients into bowl with toppings of your choice (chocolate chips, oreos, fruit, etc.)
• Mix with immersion blender until ice cream forms a thick custard
• Let set in freezer for an hour or longer, grab a spoon, and enjoy!
