Homemade Ice Cream!

Man, if now is not the time for ice cream, I don't know when is. A lonely lady, sitting at home with her pup while her man's away. What does the doctor order? Well, if this doctor had any brains it would surely be some ice cream! And they went to school for ten years, so why not some ice cream you can make yourself in ten minutes, freeze for FOUR hours, and then dig in?! Thanks Doc, you're the best ;)

I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical at first when I found out about this on Eagle Brand. Really, just these few ingredients could make a creamy, delicious, AT HOME without an ice cream maker ice cream? No way.. But oh was I wrong, so so wrong. It was creamy and so good. Before I put it in the freezer, I licked the spoon. HELLO YUM! It's super simple, take a pint of heavy whipping cream, beat until stiff peaks form, then in another bowl add one 14 ounce cane of sweetened condensed milk, a teaspoon of vanilla, and whatever add ins you want.. I did chocolate chips and mini marshmallows this time. I added about 1/3 cup of each, maybe a tiny bit more. I just poured it in ;) There are so many different combos you can make.. You better believe I'm making up some more!

Fold the whipping cream into milk mixture, pour into a 3 quart freezer container, and freeze for 4-6 hours or until firm. Mine was ready in about 4 hours. Just take a spoonful of home made chocolate syrup, and enjoy!!

I made the chocolate syrup, and a caramel sauce as well. Check back for those recipes, See you soon!
