This 3-ingredient ice cream is the best thing you can make this week

Don’t worry, this recipe doesn’t require you to buy some pricey machine that you’ll use once in a blue moon. Everyone can make it with minimal equipment, namely an electric hand mixer (or a strong arm) and a freezer.

It’s actually so easy and so tasty you have to try it to believe it.

This recipe is a base so feel free to get creative when it comes to flavouring and toppings, the sky is the limit!
