If you love ice cream as much as I do, especially Dairy Queen’s soft serve ice cream, you will definitely love this recipe. You couldn’t get any closer to DQ’s recipe than this!
The recipe itself is extremely easy to make and doesn’t require a lot of fancy ingredients.
I make the base and refrigerate it overnight to give it time to thicken, then the next evening I set up my ice cream maker and we enjoy homemade ice cream for dessert — with all of the tasty toppings, of course! hehee.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Mix gelatin in cold water. Set aside.
Heat milk in heavy saucepan, stirring occasionally, just until hot. Do not boil or scorch.
Remove from heat and add thickened gelatin, sugar, vanilla and salt.
Allow to cool down and then add the heavy cream. Pour into container, cover and chill for 5 to 6 hours or overnight (this is preferred).
Remove from the refrigerator and either stir the mixture carefully to thin it out or use a hand mixer to blend well. Pour chilled mixture into a 4 to 6-quart ice cream freezer bowl/maker and process according to manufacturers suggestions.
When using this recipe you can turn it into yummy milkshakes, soft serve ice cream for sundaes or splits and/or run it for longer periods of time in your ice cream maker to achieve a thicker consistency for a blizzard or any other favorite ice cream treat.
Different flavors can be added such as chocolate syrup to make chocolate ice cream, strawberry syrup for strawberry ice cream, etc.
