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, 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.]
Thank you soo much for this post. I will try this.
When you mix the powdered milk with water, also add the sugar. (You missed out sugar in the method).
I am a diabetic so I use cocoanut sugar, a natural sugar substitute.
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.
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.
