Ice cream is made via colloidal emulsion (a mixture of two or more liquids and one is immersed in the other) with water, ice, milk, sugar, air, and flavoring. You put the mixture in a device that churns and is surrounded by ice. The milk and water create the emulsion phase and are turned into foam from air being added from mixing and become frozen ice cells. The foam collides with itself and creates the customary light texture.

Once combined transfer the mixture into a shallow container and put in the freezer for 3 to 4 hours, stirring every so often so the sugar and flavorings don't settle to the bottom. Scrape the container with a spatula to get the granular texture, put into glasses and serve.
