Orange Cream Dream

May 30, 2011

Yep.  More Ice Cream.  Oh, and this was so good.  And I know that I have no place sharing recipes with you.  It is like I am crossing into enemy territory without a license.  Or some other metaphor that actually makes sense. I am on dangerous ground here.  But I think we have already established that I like to live dangerously.  Danger!

So, as I was saying, this was delicious.  I don't even have any stories to tell you about it, just the recipe to share and to let you know that I am so glad I tried it.  I had some Half & Half in my fridge that I didn't think was going to last too much longer, and a hankering for icecream so I flipped through the Ben & Jerry's book till I found something I had the ingredients for.  I know it doesn't look very orangey, but it is.

- adapted from Ben & Jerry

2 cups Half & Half
2/3 cup whipping cream
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
2 tsp vanilla extract

Mix it all together nice and good, and throw it in your icecream freezer till it is done.  Consume at an alarming rate. Makes approx 1.5 quarts.

I didn't even chill it before throwing it in the icecream maker.  I was too impatient.  So I mixed it all up and 30 minutes later we were eating icecream and watching SNL clips on Hulu.  DELICIOUS!   Make it!  Eat it!  Love it!  Ok.  I can stop yelling now.  ICECREAM!!
