Black Cherry Creamsicle Ice Cream and Floats

Black Cherry Creamsicle Ice Cream

2 -12 oz bottlesVirgil's Black Cherry Cream Soda

1 1/2 C. sugar

3/4 C. evaporated milk

2 C. whipping cream

1 sm. pkg. white chocolate instant pudding mix

1 tsp. clear vanilla

pinch salt

In a large bowl mix everything but the soda

together with a whisp.  Pour in the two bottles

of Black Cherry Cream Soda.  

Pour the mix into your ice cream maker

up to the fill line.  This is enough for

a 2 quart ice cream maker.

I am so in love with my Cuisinart 2 Quart

ice cream maker that I did a giveaway for one

several years ago.  (I just made two batches of

ice cream the other day, 

one with my Cuisinart 2 Quart

- didn't like the smaller one - 

and one with my Kitchenaid attachment. 

 The Cuisinart 2 Quart made ice cream

that was solid enough to scoop.  

The Kitchenaid and the

smaller Cuisinart made soup.  

Invest in the 2 Quart.)

I always make mine early in the day and after

removing the paddle, I pop it in the freezer for

the remainder of the day so it is scoopable. 

It even gets better in a couple of days -

that is called ripening the ice cream,

but who can wait that long!?? 

But we couldn't just enjoy the ice cream

by itself, we had to make it into a 

Black Cherry Creamsicle Float!
