Cheesecake Ice Cream

I really enjoy making different ice cream recipes for my boys.  Some I write down, others do not.  Getting lost in the memory of an aging, busy Mama.  And, although I try to replicate them, they are not always the same.  This recipe is definitely one that deserved to be written down.  You can use this as a base to build upon.  Add your favorite topping swirled inside.  Flavor it chocolate, raspberry or peanut butter...there is no end to the awesomeness that can be make with this recipe.  The ice cream seemed to melt slower than regular ice cream.  When allowed to get hard in the freezer, I was able to make curls and form this cup to nestle Blueberry Compote inside.

Nutella Oatmeal Fudgesicles

It's okay to have fudgesicles for breakfast.  As long as they are made with oatmeal and Nutella, I will gladly approve.  I don't mind giving these to my boys early in the day at all.  They are always asking me for ice cream or popsicles around 10:00 in the morning.  I thought I would make this to satisfy their cold cravings.  It worked!  The three of them loved them!  Until.....my oldest squealed about the oatmeal.  One of my twins then made a face and declared he wouldn't eat them.  LOL  No fudgesicles for his breakfast!  At least, not today.   I will be making his breakfast popsiciles with vanilla and/or fruit.  Mmm, I can almost taste them.

Pineapple Sherbert

Do you love frozen desserts as much as we do?  We could eat them every day, regardless the temperature.  A couple like chocolate, another vanilla and most of us love frozen fruit!  This sherbert is just what we have been wanting.  Frozen, fruity and smooth.  YUM!  Adapt this to suit your taste.  Enjoy!

Orange Crush Sherbert

An old favorite that has been around forever!  The recipe usually calls for a small can of crushed pineapple.  I was adventurous and added a 20 oz. can, juice and all.   The result:  pineapple in every spoonful!

Pineapple Popsicles

These are the best and easiest popsicles to make.  One ingredient and you have a healthy frozen treat for your children and yourself.  Other fruit would also work well.

Frozen Banana Chocolate Eclair Dessert

A frozen delight made from an old recipe.  This is what happened the other day when I made it in the morning.  I forgot a middle layer and left it in the freezer.  YUM!

Mocha Java Sorbet Made In Freezer

I am always looking for new frozen desserts.  It's summer and it's hot!  Okay, we eat frozen goodness all year.  Anyway, I was looking for a different one and found many for mocha java sorbet.   There are four of us that drink morning coffee.  The younger ones are more coffee flavored milk.  We like chocolate, too.  Hmmm, something for us to definitely try!  It turned out great!  Except...seems there is an exception a lot these days, I didn't have semi sweet chocolate squares and used milk chocolate chips instead.  Very chocolaty and yummy but the coffee is an aftertaste.  Use semi sweet if you are looking for more of a coffee taste or replace the water with coffee or both, which is what I will do next time.  Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Vanilla Ice

My Boys always love ice cream, so do I,  but we don't own an ice cream maker.  I started off making single servings of Ice Cream In A Bag.  Then decided I needed to make more.  The boys arms would get tired of shaking the bag and I would do all the shaking for them.  A little work out for ice cream...good trade out.  :D

I have been making Watermelon Ice, Cantaloupe Ice and Frozen Creamy Peaches.   Yesterday, everyone wanted ice cream and I came up with Vanilla Ice.  My Boys LOVED it and would have eaten every bit of it had I let them.  :D  It is little sparkles of Vanilla that make you smile.  Now please excuse us as we go eat more of these vanilla sparkles. 

Make this in the morning for a delicious afternoon frozen treat.  I hope you enjoy it! 

Vanilla Ice

3 cups Whole Milk
1/2 cup of Sugar
1 1/2 tsp Vanilla

Mix well until sugar is dissolved.  Pour into a 4 cup rectangular container and place in freezer.  When it start to freeze....stir it around.   Do this 3 more times.  Eat yours right away because there won't be any left later.  :D


I can't find the adapter for my camera card to post a picture.  argh  I'll go on a hunt for it tomorrow.  I think little hands may have wanted it for their own.  <3   Found it!

Frozen Iced Coffee

It is so hot and I am craving coffee.  I keep Southern Plate's Home Brew for Iced Coffee in the refrigerator at all times.  I decided to make Frozen Iced Coffee.   Here's how I made it...

Frozen Iced Coffee

1 cup Home Brew*
1/4 cup Condensed Milk
2 cups Ice

  Makes 2 1/2 cups.  Since you are making this, go ahead and drink the extra 1/2 cup.  :D

 Crush 2 cups ice in blender. 
Add 1 cup of Home Brew and give a short whirl.
Find an empty jar you have around waiting to can in and
Enjoy! 

* To make home brew..stir 1 cup of freshly ground coffee (I just use already ground) to 4 cups water and let sit 4 hrs to overnight.  Strain through coffee filter.  Keep refrigerated.  Enjoy!

YooHoo Ice Cream Without An Ice Cream Maker

My Friend, Christy Jordan of Southern Plate, posted this recipe for YooHoo Ice Cream on her website. Friends on the Front Porch wanted to make this but didn't have ice cream makers.  So, I thought I would make it without one.  :D

This is my version of:   

YooHoo Ice Cream

2 6.5 oz boxes of YooHoo
1/2 cup of Condensed Milk

Mix YooHoo and Condensed Milk with mixer, whisk or throw in a blender. 
I put this in a glass bowl and put inside larger container with salt and kosher salt.  The boys had fun twirling the bowl around for awhile.  Then they got tired and I put it in the freezer.  :)  You can put this in a rectangular container and do the same in a lesser amount of time. 
When it gets partically frozen, take out and whisk.  Do this two to three more times then keep in freezer until completely frozen to a soft serve stage.   You can keep it in longer for a harder ice cream.  We couldn't wait.  :D 
Enjoy


I only had one chance to take a picture before the ice cream was taken away!  :D

Frozen Coffee Cups...Tastes Like Starbucks On A Stick Also Fantastic as a Coffee Slushee

I have recently discovered the great flavor of Iced Coffee!  Where has this great tasting coffee been?  Where have I been? 

My Boys like coffee or rather milk with a splash of coffee.  Since they love coffee, I thought this would be a great afternoon treat for all of us.  For the adults...take the Frozen Coffee Cups out before they are completely frozen for a GREAT Coffee Slushee!

This tastes like Starbucks Ice Cream to me.   I hope you enjoy this....We do!  I'd love to hear what you think.  :)

 Frozen Coffee Cups

 I started with Home Brewed Coffee from my friend Christy Jordan's Southern Plate.

To Make Iced Coffee

1 cup of ground coffee beans to 32 oz of water and let sit 8 hours or overnight, or however long you can stand to wait within a decent amount of time. 
I just use the ground coffee I have on hand.  :D

Frozen Coffee Cups

1 cup of Home Brew *recipe above*
2 cups of Water
1/2 cup of Condensed Sweetened Milk

Give a couple of whirls in a blender or just stir hard with a whisk.
Pour into 8 5 oz cups (I made 6 full 5 oz cups)
Freeze for an hour or until a craft stick will stay in place
Freeze until completely set
Adults...take out before completely frozen for a Fantastic Coffee Slushee

You can also take out of freezer before completely set and eat it with a spoon!  YUM!
Tastes like Starbucks on a stick!
(please forgive the cherry stained hands and nails ;) )

Koolaid Sherbert

For our little party yesterday, that we didn't have but had a ton of fun as usual, we made Orange Koolaid Sherbert.  I found the recipe looking through some old recipes I had tucked away and had forgotten about.  I just love when that happens.  It is like my Birthday and Christmas all wrapped up as a Special Gift.  ~smiles~

We love the recipes that do not call for an Ice Cream Machine, especially since we don't have one and love to eat cold treats!   Besides, this is about having fun with My Boys while sharing recipes and making memories and it isn't as special, or fun,  when you let a machine do all the work.  ~huge smile~


Koolaid Sherbert

1 .25 oz (or close to it) evelope of unsweetened Koolaid or any brand will do
1 cup of Sugar
3 cups of Milk

Whisk all together well.  Pour in a rectangular container and put in the freezer. 
Check after an hour to see if it is getting thick.  If so,
Stir and put back in freezer.  Repeat two or three more times then let freeze completely. 
Store covered if there is any left.  : )


Getting a thumbs up from the oldest!

Frozen Creamy Peaches And A Sweet Summer Memory

My Boys and I have been making frozen fruit desserts since it is so hot out.  Today I was thinking about my Grandma, Papa and summer time.  Our family would load up in the old Chevrolet Station Wagon and go to Georgia to visit during the summer.  What a Blessing it was to see my Grandparents whom I only saw once, maybe twice a year.  We would spend a week in the hot summer.  The only air conditioner was in a window in the living room.  Door and windows open with curtains flowing once in awhile in the sparse winds of summers.  Fans were placed in just the right places at the perfect angles to help ease the scorching, breathless air of Georgia in July. 

Grandma and Papa would be up before the break of dawn.  Papa would be in the garden gathering whatever needed to be put up that particular day.  Grandma would be where she always was...In her kitchen.  We would wake up to the smell of bacon with thick rind and sausages that they had cured in the smoke house.  Big fat cat head biscuits, with a slap on bacon grease on them before heading in the oven.  Grits popping and boiling all over the back eye with a long handled spoon stuck inside the worn pot.  Eggs were fried to order and for me pancakes,  you know bacon grease got in batter also.  Butter was on a saucer and was big as a brick it seemed.  Syrup was Blackburn syrup...my favorite back then and probably would be now if I could find it.

After breakfast, Grandma would have Papa put the big ole washtubs in the sunniest part of the yard and fill them with water.  As the day and cousins got hotter playing, so did the water. 

After lunch would mean a dip, or sit rather,  in the washtubs of water.  Sometimes the water would be too hot and you would have to get the garden hose out to cool it off.  They were only big enough for one of us at the time.  If there were more kids than washtubs you had to wish you were the first one in or your water may be mighty shallow.  ~giggles~

Once we were dried off and sitting 'round the kitchen table, Grandma would bring out the best dessert ever to be had on a hot, mid summer Georgia day.  Frozen Peaches!  She would get the little white, square freezer containers out with a bunch of spoons.  If we were lucky, we would get one of our own.  But it was just as good to share...given your peach scraping cousin, or one of my sisters, wasn't hungrier than your stomach was for those icy, sweet peaches.  We scrapped and dug holding onto the frozen containers until we couldn't hold any longer.  This memory brings with it sighs and smiles as the bittersweet memories flood through my mind like the little creek after a hard rain.  I Love And Miss My Grandma and Papa So Very Much!  Until that Beautiful Day when we meet again.........


Today I wanted frozen peaches and only had canned.  Here is my very simple, yet delicious way to fix them.

Frozen Creamy Peaches

1 large can of peaches in heavy syrup

That's it.  One ingredient to get the best of the best in frozen desserts.  Puree the canned peaches and put into a rectangular container. 
Place in freezer.  Check back in 45 minutes or so.  Stir.  Check again in another 30-45 minutes stirring again. 
One or two more rests in the freezer, stirring as you go, should bring you to the most delicious sweet and creamy frozen peaches. 

If you happen to have any left over, which I doubt, just let it sit out for a few minutes before serving to get that great yumminess once again. 

I hope you enjoy this as much as My Boys and I did.  Fixing the frozen peaches and eating them 'round the table while I share Sweet Memories about their Great Grandma and Great Papa.  <3 

Getting ready for the freezer.

Can't wait to get into this but one of the little ones got to it first!  ~giggles~ 
Scoops up just like soft serve after 3 hours in the freezer.
I made this with fresh peaches and it works well...puree and sweeten to your taste.  Not as creamy but delicious and is scoopable!  Your children will love eating frozen fruit!
