This is one of my favorite homemade ice creams. It is super easy and tasty. I have had this several times since I was a young boy but have never made it myself. The Eagle Brands website calls for 20 oz Orange Soda rather than 2 Liters. I am pretty sure we used a 2 qt Ice cream churn and most likely did not put the whole 2 liters in the recipe. Also they call for 2 teaspoons of Orange Extract. You can also make this with other flavors.
- 1 (2 liter) bottle orange soda
- 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
- Put all ingredients in ice cream cylinder and churn until firm.
I used a 2 liter of caffeine free orange soda and a 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk just as the recipe calls for. I chilled both the canister in the fridge for a couple hours before firing up the ice cream maker. I followed the instructions for my maker and placed the ice cream/sorbet mixture in the freezer for my family to try once it was done freezing in the maker. It tastes MUCH like a dreamcicle and I cannot wait to try other type of soda - grape being the first on my list, I am going to forget that "easy" pudding and half/half recipe. For the money and time you can't beat this recipe.
This is a really quick and inexpensive alternative to old time ice cream! I put the Orange soda in the freezer and the condensed milk in the fridge before putting in the ice cream maker and it took less than 30 minutes to freeze. The texture is somewhat different than regular ice cream, more like sherbert or sorbet but for the price, time and effort - you can't beat it.
Wonderful! I made this last night with Diet Orange. I didn't use the whole 2 liters in my 2 quart machine not enough room to fit it! None the less most did fit and the results were great. As said before, very econominal. Can't wait to try again, maybe some limey soda might be like key-lime pie!
