A cheap and easy ice cream recipe without cream: just evaporated milk, skim milk and sugar. I flavored the basic ice cream recipe with vanilla and banana puree to get rid of the evaporated milk taste but feel free to improvise!

So I kind of cheated when I made this. I made this like I did the Five Minute Ice Cream which is also from this site. Instead of skim milk I used fat free half-n-half (I didn't want it to turn out "icey"). My bananas were frozen. I threw everything in the blender and let it go for a minute or so then poured it into a freezeable container. After it had frozen almost solid the first time I scooped it out and ran it through the blender for a second time. We just had this for dessert with chopped bananas on top this is quite good. The kids and I really liked it. Next time I'd like to add a little cinnamon and nutmeg and maybe use brown sugar instead of white then I think it would be like eating Banana Bread ice cream. This recipe's a keeper! Read More

Very creamy but refreezes too hard. I didn't have raisins and it was still good. It's hard to find low fat ice-cream w/o chocolate or peanuts (which I'm allergic to) so this was a fantastic find! Next time I'll try the raisins. Read More

This recipe had good flavor from just the vanilla; I didn't need to add bananas. It tastes more like a custard than an ice cream and is best after a few minutes so the ice crystals melt. Definitely worth a try! Read More

This didn't work for me. Not creamy. I don't know if I did something wrong but it was more like a block of ice. Read More
