This recipe is for soft serve. Soft. Serve. So of course it's not going to get that hard. It's supposed to taste like and have the consistency of soft serve. And it delicious.
I scaled this recipe back and also used 1% milk, which may have been unwise choices. The ice cream never really got firm, but we enjoyed some really good milkshakes.
We did the old-fashioned crank style with this ice cream. It did firm up a bit but not as well as I would like. We scooped it out of the ice cream maker and put it in a gallon bucket and stuck it in the freezer last night. This morning it has firmed up really nice and tastes wonderful! We are doing an ice cream social so this recipe is really cheap to use for big quantities and uses no eggs, which is going to be great for the young and elderly who often attend these church functions! Thanks for posting a great and easy recipe for those of us who still like to make homemade ice cream, but don't want to empty our wallets on the traditional ice cream ingredients!
This really tasted like "real" soft serve vanilla ice cream. It's a lot like Dairy Queen or Carvel ice cream here in the United States. I used 2% milk and lite Cool Whip.
this is great. if you put fat free milk (4 cups), and package of sugar free pudding mix, six splenda packets, and some Vanilla, this stuff is so sinful and to die for. thanks for the recipe chef 482014! you are the best.
This was one of the easiest ice creams I have ever made. It had a nice flavor and it was creamy. Served at our Bbq. Thanks Chef#482014. Bullwinkle
