Powdered MilkIn 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?

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, sugar 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.]

When you mix the powdered milk with water, also add the sugar. (You missed out sugar in the method). I made this a few years ago.


It was pretty good! Couldnt find where I put the recipe so Im glad to find this! Thanks.

I am a diabetic so I use cocoanut sugar, a natural sugar substitute.

This recipe doesn't call for heavy cream (which is skimmed off after milking the cow) but is asking for full fat powdered milk. Miksi is one brand I found online but there are probably others.

Peppermint Candy Powdered Milk Ice Cream [Sunshine Ice Cream]

Makes about 1 Quart

2 teaspoon gelatin
1 cup hot water
8 heaped tablespoons full cream powdered milk


1 cup sugar (I increased this part from the original)
1 ½ cups hot water
1 1/2 cups evaporated milk (or 12 oz can)
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
optional: 1/8 tsp peppermint extract


In a food processor coarsely grind a few peppermint candy canes to give you about 1/4 cup of coarsely ground candy cane. Set aside the coarsely ground candy canes to add at the end. Next, finely grind 4 oz of peppermint candy until it is almost a powder.

Dissolve gelatin in 2 tablespoon cold water, then mix with the 1 cup hot water.

Beat together powdered milk, sugar and 1 ½ cups hot water, can of evaporated milk; add gelatin mixture, vanilla, finely ground peppermint, vanilla and optionally add the peppermint extract if you think it needs more peppermint flavor. The candy will dissolve and the mixture should be pink.


Beat well, cool in the freezer or fridge until it is cold.

Once the mixture is cold, place into the ice cream maker and churn for ~15-20 minutes. Once it is done, add the coarsely chopped peppermint candy.

My mother made this recipe from the 1940's on. We were the first in street to have a fridge with a tiny freezer and stainless steel icecream trays. In 1949 my father bought her a Sunbeam Mixmaster which made the job easier. I am giving this recipe a go today as I lost my Mum's recipe book in 1969. Thank you for the recipe.

Nonfat dry milk works equally as well. I added a little extra milk powder and it was very rich. I used cold water instead of hot and processed in my Ice cream maker. Fabulous flavor.

"Nestles cream" is a canned Nestle product called Table Cream. Commonly used in countries where fresh milk isn't readily available.


In USA can be found at foreign groceries and online.

The sugar is in the method - right next to the words powdered milk!

---- any "sugar" is SUGAR natural or not. I know you posted this a while ago--please, don't play with your health and life. The ADA does not have YOUR best interests at heart. Watch KenDBerry, MD on youtube for the truth about diabetes and how to battle it. I watched my mom suffer 20 years with every complication of T2 diabetes, including amputations. She died at 64. Very low carb/ keto/non processed foods/high animal fat---is the way to eat. My grandmother ate this way after her diagnosis at the same age as my mom and lived to 84--with no complications. I was on the wrong path and dx with T2 at 40 also. A1c was 12 at one point, now is down so far to 6.5 and still dropping . I went very low carb and eat NO processed foods (even ADA approved desserts or "keto" labeled processed junk/desserts). For help to learn about it you can watch Dr. KenDBerry on YouTube--he has many videos, explains many things--no purchases/payments necessary for the info. Be Well my friend.

In Australia Nestles is the brand of cream sealed in a can. Just normal cream that is preserved in a can.

That is correct. Carnation and Nestle produced Evaporated Mils, Condensed Milk and Cream here In Tins. Actually, I still use Carnation tinned milk and Sunshine Powdered Milk.

What is cream powdered milk?

By Bria


May 22, 20150 found this helpful

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.

Look for Nido milk, which is sold online and at Walmart...this has the fat content of whole milk when reconstituted. Also, look for Parents Choice, which costs 1/3 less than Nido...and is equivalent to about 2% milk. But the butterfat in Parents Choice is replaced with veg oil, so it is healthier than the saturated fat in regular milk. Either of these brands taste much better than standard "instant non-fat" dry/powdered milk.

7/20/19 - King Arthur Flour sells what they call baker's special dry milk. I have used in my baking recipes with good results. You can order over the phone at 1-800-827-6836. Hope this helps.

Just my 5¢. My no fat, low sugar chocolate ice cream. 3 cups water. 1 1/3 cup instant non fat milk powder. 1/2 cup Nestle Quick. Optional 1/2 small packet instant banana pudding for extra creamy texture. 45 minutes in Simac 800 or 30 minutes in Musso 4080. ENJOY.
