Homemade Frozen Custard

 Do you love the frozen custard sold at places like Culvers?  I do!  I recently got an ice cream maker and decided to give homemade frozen custard a try.  It’s not that hard to make, but the process is somewhat time-consuming.  It’s not for anyone who demands immediate gratification.  Trust me though… the final result is worth the wait!

Frugal Tip:  When a recipe calls for only egg yolks or egg whites, don’t throw the other part away!  They can frozen and kept for later use.

Easy Fried Ice Cream

easy fried ice cream recipe

Ask anyone their favorite Mexican dessert, and they’re likely to say fried ice cream.  The trouble is, the “real” version is kind of intimidating to make.  This Easy Fried Ice Cream recipe incorporates all the flavors without the deep frying.  Plus, the extras are easily refrozen for later (that is, if there are any leftovers).

Plus, once you make the crushed corn flake topping for your homemade fried ice cream, you could easily store it for later use.  It would be fun at an ice cream sundae bar!

Frugal Tip:  My friend just said she gets her vanilla ice cream at ALDI.  Instead of buying the ‘premium’ Belmont brand, she actually prefers the cheaper kind they have there, and says it tastes just like Schwan’s.  I’m going to pick some up next time I’m there!
