Grandma Johnson's "Improved" Homemade Ice Cream


  • 1 quart whole milk (or enough to fill freezer after all ingredients are in the freezer)
  • 2 quarts half and half
  • 1 pint whipping cream
  • Ad

  • 1 lb. box powdered sugar
  • 1 package instant pudding (vanilla or your favorite)
  • 4 Tbsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 5 - 6 eggs (safer now to use Egg Beaters.)


Mix well and pour in Ice Cream freezer. Follow instruction on your maker. When the ice cream is done pile more ice and rock salt on top of freezer and cover with several sheets of newspapers and a terry towel to hold in the cold for about 15-20 minutes to have firmer Ice Cream.

For other flavors try using 1 Tbsp. vanilla and 2 - 3 Tbsp. of whatever flavor extract you are making.

Add fresh fruit peach, strawberry, banana, cherries etc.

Chocolate pudding with a tablespoon of cocoa powder. (Mix with just enough hot water to dissolve lumps. Cool before adding to mix.) Mix in mini chocolate chips or chopped brownies after the ice cream is done. You can use crushed peppermint candies, chopped nuts and syrups, fudge toppings. Also warm up jelly - jam as a fast topping. Now you can get the sugar free syrups used in coffee shops to flavor coffee/tea/soda. Smart N Final has the best prices on them.

Hello! Imagine living so many years without EVER having the time to make HOMEMADE ICECREAM!!!
Q. Do you think I can use ORGANIC and FAT-FREE
MILK or must there be FAT? I won't hold you responsible if it fails. LOL : ) My favorite fruits are
watermelon, banana, apple, blueberry, pineapple, and perhaps NONE can be used successfully to flavor ice cream, right? LOL God bless you for sharing
this recipe.
