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.

Fudge Sauce

This sauce is so good drizzled over ice cream.  Layered in cakes.  Stirring into milk.  Added to milk shakes. Or, and I not saying I do this, eaten from a spoon!

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!

Homemade Magic Shell

I got an ice cream maker!  Woo Hoo!!!!  Finally!  I made Vanilla Ice Cream for my first one...the boys LOVED it ... we all did!   Do you like toppings on your ice cream?  I'm picky about it and it all depends what type of dessert mood I'm in.  Some days are berries while others are nuts and chocolate.  Today, was chocolate so I decided to make Magic Shell.  It's easy and everyone loved it.  In less than one minute you can make magical chocolate shells and amaze your little ones, too.


Vanilla Ice Cream..Yes, I got an Ice Cream Maker

My sweet boys, and their thoughtful Daddy, got me an ice cream maker for Mother’s Day!  Finally, after all these years of making ice cream in the freezer, I got the ice cream maker I have dreamed of.  It’s nothing fancy.  It makes ice cream the “old fashion way” as my twins like to say.  If it isn’t connected with a computer,  that’s the category everything falls into.  It’s one that you have to look all over town to find the rock salt because the place it was bought, doesn’t carry it. I love it and picture great times, sitting outside with my boys, waiting for the sweet outcome of the humming machine.   I had to go to Publix to find rock salt and bought 3 boxes just so I’ll have it should there be a shortage this summer.  It could happen, ya know.   I would have to get the kosher salt out and try, if it did.

Frozen Oreo Ice Cream Pudding Cake

I know you want this!  I can see it all over your face.  Come on…admit it!  There you go, I knew you would.  ~smile~  I’ve changed an old dessert to a “healthier” version.  Healthier, but by no means healthy.  Big difference so eat sparingly.  Or, eat like a piggy and diet for a month to make up for it.  ~big guilty grin!~  This makes a lot!  It is a huge frozen dessert.  You can make it in smaller pans or even cupcake liners as very cute and easy to handle dessert for the children and adults alike!  Go ahead…make someone people happy!  Enjoy

Honey Vanilla Ice Cream Made in the Freezer

Here is another frozen recipe of delight!  We are having fun trying different flavors!  I wanted to skip the granulated sugar and opted for honey instead.   Such a wonderful flavor combined with vanilla!!!!  


Honey Vanilla Ice Cream

3 cups 2% milk
2 cups heavy cream
1/2 to 3/4 cup honey, your preference
1 1/2 to 2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract, your preference

Mix everything together well and pour in a freezer safe pan.  I use stainless steel, but any freezer safe pan will do.
When ice crystals form, take out of freezer and scrap the ice cream, breaking it apart and fluffing it up.
Do this 2 to 3 more times.  
Or.....
If you are gone, or forget like I do, you can break in small pieces once it is frozen,  put in blender,  food processor,  use a mixer and mix until smooth. 
Eat now or put in a freezer safe container and return to freezer until hard.
Top with your favorite toppings and Enjoy!

Coffee Float

I Love Iced Coffee! I make my Coffee Concentrate from a recipe I got from Christy of Southern Plate....Love Her!!!! <3

My Boys were eating ice cream tonight after getting their bellies full of Fish and Shrimp, YUM! I decided to make Iced Coffee, then went further with it. Making a Coffee Float!  It tastes like Starbuck's Ice Cream!  Delicious! My Boys wanted to drink it all!

Very easy to make. I am certain you already know how....Coffee Concentrate, Milk and Sugar to taste. You'll have to adjust to your own liking.  Two scoops of Vanilla Bean Ice Cream makes this absolutely the most Delicious treat!!

Enjoy!  <3 and Hugs!

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
