New Homemade Ice Cream Recipes!
Ok, here are a few we've tried and LOVED. Our machine only makes a quart (thank goodness) so you will probably have to adjust recipes.
This is the base we always use:
2 C. heavy or whipping cream
2/3 C. half and half
3/4 C. sugar
Pour cream into mixing bowl. Whisk in the sugar a little at a time, then continue whisking until completely blended, about 1 minute. Pour in half and half, wisk to blend.
You can add candy or crushed candy bars to this for something easy. My husband loves Heath bars (yuck). I like Butter Fingers.
Prepare base ice cream, chill in fridge.
1 pint fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
juice of 1/2 lemon
1/3 C. sugar
Combine strawberries, sugar, and lemon juice in a mixing bowl. Cover, leave in fridge for at least an hour.
After chilling, smash strawberries into puree and stir into the cream base.
Transfer mixture into ice cream maker and freeze (according to the mfg. instructions).
Orange Cream Dream:
1/3 C frozen orange juice, thawed
2 t vanilla extract
Add juice concentrate and vanilla extract to base and blend.
Transfer to ice cream maker, freeze according to mfg instructions.
1 1/2 C champagne
1/4 C. suger
1 1/2 C orange juice
Pour champaigne and OJ into a large bowl. Add sugar, stir till disolved and champ. is flat.
Transfer to ice cream maker, freeze following mfg. instructions.
Great seved in champagne or in mimosa. Yum!
