Homemade ORANGE Crush Ice Cream

I refuse to beat around the bush.
I'll not waste time trying to convince you of the YUMMINESS of this ice cream.
You really don't need to hear about this recipe being one of those "traditional" recipes that's
been in the family for years.
You don't wanna {Southern for "want to"} hear about all the SUMMER nights we've 
sat around the pool...
"in the country" slurping down ORANGE Crush Ice Cream.
Or how we always serve it with creme filled Sugar Wafers.
You do need to know that once you've experienced the sensation of this ice cream
you'll find yourself craving it like nobodies business...
for like decades of your life.
Please don't think I'm kidding.
Here's what you need to make some of the BEST ice cream you'll ever eat.
6 cans of ORANGE Crush Soda {Sunkist, Nehi can also be used}
2 cans Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 heaping cup sugar
You'll also need an ice cream maker.
More to come on my new 2~Quart Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker.
Bridget uses a Cuisinart when she makes her Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream.
Koralee of Bluebird Notes uses a Cuisinart to whip up all of her fancy ice creams.
How exciting is it that Koralee is coming out with an ICE CREAM cookbook~
Pop over and congratulate Koralee!
{Who's one of my favorite friends in the world by the way.}
Trust me.
If you don't have an ice cream maker~
get one~
just so you can make ORANGE Crush Ice Cream!

Begin with a good whisk.
Add 2 cans of Eagle Brand Condensed Milk to a big bowl.
Stir in the sugar.
Slowly pour in one can of Orange Crush.
Combine the first can of soda with condensed milk and sugar.
Continue adding 5 more cans of Orange Crush.
This recipe makes 3 quarts.
If you are using a smaller ice cream maker you'll have left over ice cream mix.
Add the mix to ice cream freezer.
Crank up the ice cream maker.
Mix until the ice cream is firm.
Serve immediately or transfer the ice cream to freezable container.
Cover and freeze for later.
ORANGE Crush Ice Cream!
Serve to family and friends on a warm~SUNNY day!
Or on a cool~Northwestern day!
Serve with sugar wafers or pound cake or nothing at all.
ENJOY!
Happy Monday!

      Your kiddos will LOVE it!
      Totally taste like a Dreamsicle.
      That's what I mentioned to Greg last night.
      It would taste even more like a Dreamsicle if you just add 4 cans Orange Crush {or orange soda of choice}
      Let me know how it turns out.

      This does taste like a Dreamsicle which I LOVE!
      If you really want it to taste DREAMY in that respect just add 4 cans of Orange Crush.
      That way it will be creamier.
      ENJOY!

    1. Yeah!
      Let me know how it turns out.
      I usually just fill the ice cream freezer bucket up to the fill line with soda {minus all the foam}.
      You will LOVE this!
      Serve it with a wafer of some sort!
      ENJOY!

  15. I am currently making this in my Cuisinart ice cream maker, but it does not appear to be freezing after 22 minutes. I have made multiple batches of ice cream using cream and milk and usually only churn for 25 minutes. Does this recipe require a longer churning time?

    1. I found it turns out better if you put the mix in the fridge over night and let all the bubbles dissolve and then put it in the ice cream freezer in the morning.

    2. Have made half batch twice...once with orange and once with grape. Gonna try it without adding the sugar; has anyone tried it that way????

  16. I could be having the worst day ever and my dad would make this and all would be well with the world. It's magic!

    We actually don't put in sugar. We add a can of crushed pinapple in its own juices (if its in heavy syrup it's toooo much sugar), and a 1/4 cup of lemon juice.

    Ours always turns out a little more slushy than ice creamy, but we do not mind one bit. I could really eat an entire batch of the stuff all by myself. It really is heaven.
