Homemade Ice Milk. -Vanilla, Chocolate, Almond, Fruit Choices

"Ice Milk is not ice cream but it will give you the feeling of the frozen treat with far more ease and no machine needed. When it comes out all frozen, let it sit for a few minutes in the sun and then stir it up, it is much more like ice cream at that point. Even better, you can make as much as you want at a time :) For the flavorings, add to your taste, obviously if you choose fresh fruit you may want more than an extract flavoring. Cooking time is actually time to freeze."

Ready In:
8hrs 5mins




  • Choose a bowl or ceramic mug, any container that can be frozen and will hold as much as you make. If its tupperware and you choose to use the lid, remember it will be harder to remove when frozen, otherwise use plastic wrap. (told you this is easy :) ).
  • Mix all ingredients in the bowl. Cover with plastic wrap.
  • Place in the freezer overnight.
  • Next day, let it sit in sun for a few minutes then stir it and you will have ice milk. Until then it just looks like frozen ice lol.

  1. Tried the vanilla, could have used a bit more sugar for my taste. Thank you!
  2. No photo but I did do the chocolate version and did use skim milk. It was so perfect when semi thawed for my DD who has just had 4 wisdom teeth out. I divided it into 2 portions and she had one in slushy form and one more liquid prior to freezing and enjoyed it as much as possible in the circumstances.
  3. Don't try this with skim milk. I did, and it's not all that good. Just ice crystals, slight vanilla flavor. I guess it needs the higher fat content to make it creamier. Too bad...I was hopeful!


http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/527607/cookswithcattitude.jpg I am a middle aged foodie who has had the luxury of living all over the world except asia. Lived in or grew up in Nigeria, Kenya, Chicago, Russia,and haiti. born in New Zealand, brother born in Austria and many more. I have chronic medication resistant depression after 10 years on anti depressants that worked well but would stop working after a year or two, so now do my best at home living on disabilty. Not a bad thing, many have far worse health issues but i have been able to concentrate on food/cooking. My main passions are my cats. I live in the woods and somehow many starving strays or "dumps" have found the message babies who passed on left in the woods saying "suck lives at xxxx road. Most arrive sick and/or starving. Right now i have 2 that arrived with feline herpes and their attendant 2ndry bacterial infections but are doing beautifully. One old man who was going to be euthanized bc a lady who found him as a stray was moving and didnt want him...well he was a biter and rather grumpy who was in ICU for 3 days with a deadly gut infection which was fixed but he left with a diagnosis of diabetes. 3 months on insulin and finally diet controlled and he caught the herpes virus, respiratory symptom version and turned into a cuddler. Butterscotch must think "why didnt i figure out this cuddle stuff was great before i got sick!" Doing wonderfully even though he has bouts. he and the other kids are my babies. Sadly Butterscotch died of Lymphatic cancer in winter of 2008. A year before Big Boy arrived in my life, starving and weak. Full of affection he jumped into my arms and stayed, turns out he has FIV (cat hiv) so he needs to be watched closely. I love him dearly <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Stockingswapcopy.jpg"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/participantbannerzwt5.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/cookbookswap.jpg"> <img src="http://www.caymandesigns.com/foodothers/fallswap.jpg">
