Ice cream

We love ice cream around here.
Someone tell me why I haven't been making homemade more often?
I made some today after church for our Sunday's probably not the most decidant recipe, but I like non-rich ice cream. 

The Base:
2 cups whole milk 
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla

Then add in whatever else you want: 
Chocolate stuff
Flavor concentrate

I blended up blueberries until there weren't any chunks, and added it to the mixture. The ice cream turned purple, so I told the kids it was cotton candy ice cream and they devoured it. 

St. Patrick's Day ice cream:
All of the above except
1/4 almond extract 
Spinach (maybe 1-2 cups)
Blend it all in the blender so they don't know what is making the ice cream green.
