It’s no secret on the blog here that I have a serious love of all things cinnamon. I first fell in love with cinnamon ice cream at Cold Stone Creamery when we lived outside of Cincinnati. I would get cravings for their ice cream and make Eric take me into Cincy to get some. I always ordered a Cinnamon milkshake made with it. It was so good.
Making ice cream with a Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker is so easy, but I always feel like supermom after I have made a batch. The kids love ice cream so they think it is awesome. We love thinking up new combinations to try. To be honest, when I first made this ice cream I had my doubts it would measure up anywhere near that of Cold Stone. My worries were for nothing. This ice cream is AMAZING!! I could have grabbed a spoon and just eaten the whole ice cream maker bowl full in one sitting.
I even made a few of my Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Milkshakes using it. Oh my, those were heaven! I know that I say that everything I post is amazing, but that’s the point of this blog. I am not going to post it here unless it is tried and true and a favorite of our family. If you like cinnamon, you will LOVE this ice cream!!
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 1 cup half & half
- ½ cup sugar
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla paste (or extract)
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- pinch of salt
- In a mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients and mix well.
- Pour into ice cream maker and prepare according to your ice cream makers directions.
If you don’t have an ice cream maker, you can pick up the same one that I have through Amazon. I highly recommend this Cuisinart Ice Cream maker. There’s nothing like a good batch of homemade ice cream.
You won’t believe how much fun you can have with your own ice cream maker!
