*Old Fashioned Vanilla Ice Cream*

Hello every one! Today I,m posting Old Fashioned Vanilla Ice Cream. This Ice cream is so rich and creamy, something a diabetic can only have once in a great while because of all the fat in it. Have you ever noticed that when We take most of the fat out, the more carbohydrates there are in the food. I think it sucks big time. This recipe is so good, it has a custered taste to it. Well enjoy!
