I got this recipe from a friend many years ago and have never looked back! If you are looking for a lower fat recipe, this one is NOT for you! It is the most delicious and creamy homemade ice cream ever! You can add your choice of fruit which makes it really nice. Banana is our favorite, but I have used crushed pineapple, blueberries, strawberries and fruit cocktail.

1 can(s)
eagle brand milk
1 c
granulated sugar
1 tsp
vanilla extract
4
eggs or egg substitute
1 qt

Your welcome...and thank you for the recipe and info on adding water. The chocolate icecream we made actually said to add water to the chocolate as it melts but we add the remaining part of Eagle Brand and finished it off with canned milk for the same amount. It's the first time I have had homemade ice cream that we have put in our refrigerator freezer and it not get really hard and slightly icy. This texture is really creamy & close to bought ice cream as far as firmness.

Thanks for the tip LeSann...sounds like that worked well...will try it. I've never seen a recipe for heating the fruit and not sure why unless it may make it more flavorful. I have had an ice cream recipe that called for a cup of water and it didn't make it icy so I don't think it would cause ice.

I also, in all my searching for good ice cream recipes, have found several that said to heat the fruit with sugar and a little water until sugar dissolves then let this set for 20 min or until cooled and add to ice cream. Do you know why this is done? Does it make the fruit flavor stronger?? Would it cause a more icey cream?

We made Chocolate Ice cream the other day that you heated the cream in a double boiler, mixed up the eggs in a bowl added the sugar and condensed milk , then put some of the warm cream in it to temper it and gradually added the egg mixture into the heated cream and continued to heat for 5 min. I used a wire whisk to blend it as it heated. You take it off the heat and cool, we let it set on cabinet for a few minutes then put in the frig. because we were in a hurry to make it. After cooled then add vanilla and put in the ice cream freezer with any ingredients..it was very creamy and delicious. I would think you could do this recipe the same way if you are afraid of the raw eggs..Years ago my grandmother made ice cream with raw eggs but there was no cause to be concerned but now days you never know what these chickens are fed and I don't feel good about the raw eggs either. We will try this one next ice cream we make.
