My mother has had a rough week. On Monday, she has left a message on my phone. “Hello. This is your mother speaking.” (I know – we’ve met – I recognize your voice.) “My septic tank is on tilt. I will be staying at your sister’s tonight until your brother can figure out where it is and how to fix it. Goodbye.” Later that evening, I called my sis to check in on how she and Neeners were doing. She replied, “Fine. At about 5:00 Neeners came into the kitchen and said ‘I am in need of nourishment. Where do you keep the gin?’ She was in bed by 8:00. All good.”
And after the septic dilemma, there was the Morning Glory infestation. And finally, to top it all off, she lost her glasses. In an attempt to hide them from the dog, she misplaced them and they have yet to turn up. I would say she requires some ice cream. Lucky for Neeners, so do I. I have no reason, I just want it.
I’m going to show you how to make the easiest soft serve ice cream you ever saw. Three ingredients. Five minutes. Done. Because it is so easy, we’ll fancy it up some and make three different kinds and layer them in a loaf pan. When you slice off a piece, you’ll see a rainbow. Let’s get started.
I chose Peach to show you since it’s my favorite. Here’s all you’ll need: Sweetened Condensed Milk, a Lime, and 9 cups of semi-frozen Peaches.
Here’s the most important part of this whole thing: the fruit really should be semi-frozen. When I attempted this recipe using hard frozen fruit, I nearly burned up my food processor. He could not handle the volume or the resulting very firm consistency. He was smoking hot and had to go into ‘time out’ mode for about half an hour before I could attempt the next batch. If you happen to have frozen solid fruit, just microwave in 30-second intervals until it looks like this:
First, pour the Sweetened Condensed Milk into the food processor, followed by the lime juice and half of the fruit.
