MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 1, 2014

This recipe is very easy to put together and makes a nice smooth, creamy ice cream. Quite delish!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 5, 2014

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!

I just made this ice cream, and then I made some more! It is so good. I baked some peanut butter chocolate chip cookies to make sandwiches with later! YUM!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 18, 2013

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!
