MY REVIEW

Reviewed Jul. 11, 2016 Edited Jul. 14, 2016

"Tried making this with a traditional ice cream maker and it never froze, however after freezing it in the freezer it was the perfect consistency. The thought of having only four ingredients was appealing and it looked easy, so based on the reviews I thought I would try it. Both times the mix never did set up and freeze in the ice cream maker the way it should. I let it run for 3 hours with the ice and rock salt but it wasn't freezing. Great flavor!! Will make again."

"I made this for the Fourth of July and used it for root beer floats. It was a huge hit! My husband, who doesn't like homemade ice cream, really liked it. I agree with the reviewer who said it tastes like the soft-serve from McDonald's. Super creamy and very easy to scoop after sitting in the freezer for five hours. I'll definitely be making this again!"

"For such a simple recipe, this was delicious. Very creamy and doesn't have that grainy texture that some homemade ice creams have. Instead of vanilla I used 2 tsp. of Amaretto. Will make again and again!"
