Rose Mary's Kool-Aid Ice Cream

Rose Mary Mogan


I know the title may sound strange, but this is quite tasty, I made this cool dessert dish as a kid, and when ever I make it, it always brings back those childhood memories. It is quick & easy, and as a kid I had to use a hand beater to whip up the milk, but it was well worth it. We loved orange, grape & Cherry the best. Give it a try and let me know what you think. I have no idea how this recipe came about, but as soon as I knew any thing about cooking I made this dessert and was hooked on it from the very beginning. This recipe was cheeper than buying a gallon of ice cream and a real treat.

How to Make Rose Mary's Kool-Aid Ice Cream


  1. Pour evaporate milk into a medium size bowl, and chill until almost frozen, with ice crystals around the edge of bowl. Chill beaters and then beat at high speed until fluffy. Combine sugar with Kool- Aid and gradually add to milk. Beat until very stiff. Freeze in a 2 1/2 quart container until firm.
  2. Spoon into dessert bowls. You might want to add some sweetened but drained strawberries to the red flavor before freezing for an added bonus. We usually just had it plain. But it was really good on a hot Southern Summers Day in Rural Arkansas when we were growing up.
