Making ice cream at home can be very satisfying and very tasty. Although it's a lengthy process, the results are well worth the investment.

Mix the milk and sugar in the bowl with the electronic mixer on low speed. Continue mixing until the sugar is dissolved, about "1-2 minutes," according to serving-ice-cream.com.

Stir in the cream and vanilla with the mixer turned off. The point here is to combine the ingredients, not to agitate them too much.

Seal the bowl, and place it in the refrigerator for about an hour.

Remove the mixture from the refrigerator and place it in the freezer for a half an hour.

Remove the mixture from the freezer, remove the airtight cover, and mix with the electronic mixer until creamy. Be sure to scrape all the edges of the bowl.

Replace the airtight cover and put the mixture in the freezer for about 40 minutes.

Remove the mixture from the freezer, remove the airtight cover, and mix with the electronic mixer until creamy. Be sure to scrape all the edges of the bowl.

Repeat steps 6-7 (freeze, then beat the mixture) three more times. This should total over three hours of freezing for the entire recipe.
