Nothing says ‘July 4th Celebration’ like HOMEMADE ICE CREAM

Alzheimers-MakingIceCreamDo you remember sitting on top of the hand crank ice cream maker?  Homemade ice cream is a delicious treat on a hot, summer day. We like to make homemade ice cream for our July 4th celebration – it’s a family tradition. 

Below are three ice cream recipes that my family has enjoyed for years. All of these ice cream recipes are no-cook meaning you don’t have to pre-cook the ingredients prior to freezing. For best results, use name brand ingredients.

No-Cook Vanilla Ice Cream
5 eggs beaten for 10 minutes
1 cup sugar
1 can Eagle brand milk
1 can Carnation evaporated milk
2 pints whipping cream
2 Tablespoons Vanilla extract
fill container with whole milk
Freeze mixture in ice cream freezer according to the unit’s instructions.

Chocolate Ice Cream*
Makes 4 quarts
16 ounces cool whip
1 can Eagle brand milk
1/2 gallon Nestle Chocolate Milk – Use the name brand…it makes a difference.
*If you want to make Butterfinger Ice Cream, add 4 Butterfinger candy bars, crunched at this time.
Freeze mixture in ice cream freezer according to the unit’s instructions.

Frozen Passion Ice Cream
1 64 ounce Shasta Strawberry Drink
2 cans Eagle brand milk
1 package frozen strawberries
Freeze mixture in ice cream freezer according to the unit’s instructions. You may need to transfer this ice cream to a container to finish freezing it. Delicious!
