As the weather starts to warm up, my mind immediately goes to summer time, hot temperatures and afternoon treats.
Usually we stock up on Braum's Ice Cream, and that's fine as we love all the different flavors, but it can become a bit expensive at $6 a gallon.
As always, it is cheaper to make at home, but, is it worth it?
For me, it is. It is certainly cheaper to make and I can use whatever flavor I choose, which gives me endless possibilities.
3 Ingredient Ice Cream
1 can condensed milk
1 can evaporated milk
1 3 oz. box Jello, flavor of your choice (I used Raspberry)
Make the jello as per directions on the box. In a blender, add the jello mixture, the condensed milk and the evaporated milk. Beat for 2 or 3 minutes until well incorporated.
Pour into a freezer safe tub, and freeze for 2 hours.
After two hours, pull out of freezer and transfer the mixture into a kitchenaid mixer, or a big bowl that you can use with a handheld mixer.
Mix on medium for 10 minutes. It will get really well blended and will also increase in volume.
After the 10 minutes, pour back into freezer tub or a bigger one if needed and freeze for 12 hours.
That is it, simple, quick and easy. It does take a long time to freeze, and it most certainly needs the 12 hours in the freezer, so keep that in mind when making a batch for your family.
