Candycane Ice Cream



December: the best month for baking. And how better to start the holiday baking than with another ice cream? I am obsessed, I know. I don't really like flavoring ice creams with extract, but since I found this Candycane ice cream on Simply Recipes inspired by David Lebovitz, I had to give it a try!

It is simply a vanilla ice cream (a little different from how David Lebovitz makes it in his book but also very good) in which peppermint extract is added, and crushed candycanes as well in the last minute of churning. I also added two drops of pink food coloring to get a pink color. A perfect way to welcome Christmastime :)

Here is the recipe!

Looks tasty! I've been craving peppermint but I'm not a fan of candy canes by themselves. I think this might be the best alternative :)

Yes! And you can always make chocolate peppermint ice cream as well! That's one I must try soon...

o.O Oh and I couldn't find peppermint ice cream at the store... Guess it's time to dig out the ice cream maker.
