How To Make No-Churn Ice Cream

To make ice cream, start by preparing your vanilla bean. If you don’t have a vanilla bean, you could substitute using 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract.

Next, beat heavy cream at high speed in a large mixing bowl. You want it to form nice, stiff peaks. Be careful, though, to not overbeat it or you could end up with butter!
