That's not really ice cream.

Many restaurant supply places have a dairy freeze mix for those soft serve "ice cream" machines

I was going to ask, what type of ice cream is it? If it's the white soft serve kind, you can just purchase the powdered ice cream mixes they sell near the machines and use those. It will be the closest thing to it.

I have a few recipes we use. Some is straight up cream, eggs and flavorings and others are custard based. Which one do you prefer?

Here is a straight up ice cream. Simple and I omit the peach preserves. I like it really vanillaey so I add tbsp of vanilla bean paste if you can find it too. If not, it's fine without it.

You're right; it's ice milk. And I agree with the OP that it tastes wonderful.
Here's a copycat recipe that someone recommended: http://www.food.com/recipe/simple-va...ce-milk-373964

The first recipe I tried when I got my ice cream maker was Thomas Jefferson's favorite, and one he served frequently to guests at Monticello. It's a frozen vanilla egg custard... today it would be called a French Vanilla... and it is still my favorite. It's very rich.

Protip: with any cooked ice cream base like this, let it cool thoroughly before putting it in the ice cream machine.
