In 1963, my girlfriend at the time, made a really nice ice cream, using the recipe on a Sunshine powdered milk tin. Is that recipe still in existence?
When you get the recipe, please post it!
I was searching for a powdered milk ice cream recipe and came across your question. Just a few minutes later I came across this recipe in an old newspaper ad from 1960. I think this is the one you are looking for!
For those who had trouble reading the recipe from the Google link, I have transcribed it for myself and am sharing it below:
Powdered Milk Ice Cream [Sunshine Ice Cream]
Makes about 2 Pints
1 teaspoon gelatin
½ cup hot water
4 heaped tablespoons full cream powdered milk
3 tablespoons sugar
1 ½ cups hot water
1 ¼ teaspoons vanilla extract
Dissolve gelatin in 1 tablespoon cold water, then mix with the ½ cup hot water.
Beat together powdered milk and 1 ½ cups hot water; add gelatin mixture and vanilla. Beat well, turn into freezer trays. When frozen to the consistency of thick cream, remove, beat until doubled in bulk. Freeze firm.
For a richer ice cream, reduce hot water to 1 cup, add one 4-oz. tin [Nestles] cream. [Not sure what this is. - I would just try 4 oz. of regular cream.]
What is cream powdered milk?
Back in the day, you could buy powdered milk with different fat contents. Well, you still can today, but it's a lot harder to find anything besides nonfat than it used to be and a lot more expensive as well. Google "Dry Whole Milk" (which is what full cream powdered milk is) and you'll find it.
