During the grands visit this past month, I found a wonderful recipe for Home Made Ice Cream:
2 cups whipping cream
1 -14oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
OK, so I needed to jazz it up a little.
This batch, became mint ice cream!!
First, pour the sweetened condensed milk into the mixing bowl and refrigerate.
When its nice and cooled down, add 2 cups whipping cream
Begin whipping up these two ingredients, then you can add, either the vanilla, or as I did added 1/2 teaspoon of Peppermint extract. If you like it more minty add more but go slow as it is powerful. Of course, to be mint ice cream it has to be green. I added the green food coloring, just a few
drops at a time.
Then beat it until the mixture forms peaks.
I couldn't let well enough alone, I just had to add a few mint chips!!
The last step is to put the ice cream in a container, cover and freeze, for 8 hours.
This is very rich, and just a small serving is plenty. Oh, but its so creamy~~~ maybe a couple of small servings!!!
