* Happy National Ice Cream Day *

National Ice Cream Month 
is held each July in the United States.  
Ronald Reagan  designated July as 
National Ice Cream Month in 1984.
He also named the third Sunday in July 
as National Ice Cream Day.

Here is a VERY SIMPLE homemade ice cream recipe ,
using only 3 ingredients. It tastes a little bit like a
Dr. Pepper float--only richer, and better! And the Dr. Pepper part is
fully interchangeable with YOUR FAVORITE SODA.

Those 3 ingredients: Dr. Pepper (or your favorite soda),
sweetened condensed milk, and evaporated milk.
First, you pour the Dr. Pepper into the ice cream freezer canister.
MAKE SURE your pour the soda FIRST.
Otherwise, you will have a fizzy mess! (This recipe is for a 2-quart freezer)

Next, pour in the sweetened condensed milk, and evaporated milk.

And...that's it! Of course, you'll need to put the canister
into the ice cream freezer, add ice and rock salt,
and you know--turn on the freezer.
The most difficult part of this whole process is...
the wait...wait ...wait for your delectable confection.

Do you have a favorite ice cream
recipe that you would like to share ?
