Making Ice Cream is Easy - Give it a try [View all]

I have a little Krup's ice cream maker and have been using it for about 20 years. I have made classic ice cream with a cooked base, uncooked ice cream, frozen yogurts, sorbets, frozen drinks and Koolaid slush (for the grandkids). When I bought it, I paid about $70 for it, now they sell for much less. At either price, they are worth the money.

One day several weeks back, I wanted to make ice cream, but didn't have any whipping cream. I did have a can of condensed milk and some really ripe bananas, so made banana ice cream using the condensed milk, whole milk, two mashed bananas and a little vanilla extract. Nice thick, creamy, so good. . I made more ice cream today using condensed milk. It was excellent. With all my ice cream making, I had never used condensed milk until recently and I really like the texture it gives to uncooked ice cream. It will be my favorite ingredient in ice cream making from now on.

My ice cream maker makes about 1 1/2 quarts. Today, I mixed one can condensed milk, 2/3 cup whipping cream and 2 1/2 cups milk and two teaspoons vanilla. It made almost too much, it come to the top and was ready to overflow, so had to eat a little off the top to keep it from going down the side. If I make it again, I will decrease the condensed milk to about 2/3 of the can. We had the ice cream with sliced strawberries on top for dessert today. I still had about 3 cups ice cream left in the tub which I put in a container and in the freezer. It won't be there long.

Making ice cream is so easy and you can't go wrong with anything that is sweet and cold. Grandkids love it when you make them a frozen treat. One year, I made my granddaughter purple ice cream for her birthday (I used grape juice concentrate to make it purple), was tasty too.
