When we got married 7 years ago I had a few bridal showers with family and friends. At one of my showers a couple of my cousins gave us an ice cream maker and some recipes to go along with it. Now would you believe that in 7 years of marriage we never made homemade ice cream? I kind of feel guilty about that. We had this nice machine and never opened it. I always wanted to but we never got around to doing it. So for this summer I had a “bucket list” of things that I wanted to do and on that list was to make homemade ice cream. And I am proud to say that so far we have made it twice! The first time didn’t work out so great but the second recipe we tried worked like a charm! And it was incredibly easy to make and didn’t require cooking eggs to put in it. Definitely a bonus for me! So here is the easiest homemade chocolate ice cream recipe.

Chocolate Milk, cool whip and sweetened condensed milk

Then you mix it all in a bowl and throw it in your ice cream maker
And 30 minutes later (or however long your maker says to mix for) you have yummy homemade chocolate ice cream.  Add toppings and enjoy!
We added m&m’s and crushed up oreos but I think raspberry’s would be so delicious!
Here is the recipe
Easy Homemade Chocolate Ice Cream
2 cups chocolate milk
1/3 cup sweetened, condensed milk
1/2 cup whipped dessert topping
Combine all ingredients.  Pour into canister and freeze as directed.
Seriously so yummy and easy!  Enjoy!

I've had my ice cream machine for a few years and have only used it once because the complexity of recipes I've found....well until now this is too easy and it makes an amount that will keep me outta trouble (I can tear up a pint of ice cream in one setting) with my workout plan...thank you!!!
