What they don't want you to know is you DON'T have to have an ice cream maker to make your own ice cream. There are Freezer methods out there that can be made as well and they are affordable. I do in fact have an ice cream maker so I tend to use that but either way will work. And I would much rather put a little work into it since I am putting it into my body. How about you?
Your kids are going to look at you in a whole new light once you have made a batch of homemade ice cream , you might even have to have an ice cream party.....lol Think of the hero you are going to be when they find out you can add just about anything and it is good for them. Well..... you might want to leave that last part out , some kids only want things they know aren't good for them.....lol (Thanks Society , Government and Commercials). It is also a great way to get them cooking since most of the freezer recipe's don't call for any cooking at all just mixing. The ingredients are usually economical and fruits that you add can be purchased when in season or top with your choice of toppings. I prefer fruits and homemade syrups or even some of my homemade jams ( recipes for jams can be found on my blog as well ). But It's all in the eye of the Ice Cream maker : )
The recipe listed below is tried and true. I really suggest it :)
