Step 5

Pour the mixture into a loaf pan, or an equal-sized container, and cover tightly with plastic wrap. When covering the ice cream, make sure that a layer of the plastic wrap touches the ice cream. Place the ice cream into the freezer until solid, about 6 hours, but preferably overnight.

Having a layer of the plastic wrap touch the ice cream will help prevent crystallization.

Step 6

Remove the ice cream from the freezer, and let sit at room temperature for a few minutes before serving. Once the ice cream has slightly softened, scoop and enjoy.
