I made it with the freezer method. Taste is 10 stars but yhe directions weren't real clear so I gave it a 3. To Fold in the whipping cream means 2 cups whipping cream whipped which the directions aren't real clear about that.. I ended up pouring the mixture into my blender and whipping it until it was fluffier. It was delicious. I added 1/4 cup instant coffee and a 1/4 cup dark cocoa powder. It was mocha ice cream.

I made it with the refridgerator/freezer method because I don't have an ice cream maker. It has great consistency similar to store bought ice cream. Read More

This is a wonderful easy recipe. With using the sweet & condensed milk there is no graininess of undissolved sugar. You can easily substitute the ingredients to make a less fat variety - which is what I did when making the first time. I substituted whole milk for the 2 cups whipping cream to cut back on the fat and it was still very flavorful! Read More

This is a great recipe for ice cream football, a favorite family activity. First, half the recipe. Then put all the ingredients in a quart size ziploc bag (only half recipe will fit). Double bag it so it stays secure. Then fill a gallon size ziploc with ice and salt, nesting the bag of ice cream ingredients in the middle of all the ice. Double bag the gallon bag so it stays secure. Then wrap the whole package in several layers of newspaper and packing tape. Take it outside and play a game of football or keep away or just toss it around for an hour. When you unwrap the whole thing, you will have easy ice cream! Read More

I made this several times using the freezer method and it was creamy and wonderful. The only thing I changed is I only used 1 tablespoon of vanilla. We have added chopped fruit to it and poured it in a chocolate graham cracker crust to make Ice Cream pie. Great! Read More

I love this recipe! So incredibly easy so I was thinking it can't be that good. But it is! I love how it doesn't require eggs or cooking. Just dump everything into a bowl stir and put it in your ice cream maker. The flavor is so rich and delicious. Upon first bite my husband proclaimed "We're never buying store-bought ice cream again!" Next I want to try using whole milk instead of half and half and adding fruits or other goodies. Read More

Great recipe. Quick easy and tastes great! I followed the advice in one review and used whole milk instead of half and half. I also added a mango puree mixture (fresh ripe mangoes with sugar) to the mixture after it started to freeze in the churner. Yummy to the max! Read More

Way to easy for something so absolutely delicious. Company raved on the richness. Next time I'll try some fruit mixed in. This will be the only ice cream recipe I'll ever use and I'll just doctor it to the flavor that I want. If I could give this higher than 5 stars I would. Read More
