No Ice Cream Maker? No Worries With Eagle Brand Condensed Milk...an AWESOME prize pack awaits!

We often write about making ice cream with an ice cream maker, mostly because we don't know how to do it any other way. Ok, well, there is the plastic bag method and a few others, but recently we got an email from the folks at Eagle Brand Condensed Milk with a great offer for both us and for our readers (yes, coming to that) and some great ideas for how to make ice cream without an ice cream maker! How exciting!

Honestly, I don't know why I didn't think of it, because when I used their condensed milk to make that lemonade pie, it was very ice cream-y and I didn't even need to use my ice cream maker.

So our friends over at Eagle said they wanted to send us an ice cream kit (um, ok!), try out making some ice cream with their condensed milk, ask our readers to try making some with the condensed milk, and then finally, ask our readers to submit their recipes so they too can win one of two ice cream kits.

So to start, let's keep our eye on the prize...you can win exactly what we got in the mail:

How do you win? Make ice cream! I mean, best contest ever, right? You have to make the sweetest treat in order to win another sweet treat.

Here are the guidelines...
  1. Go to Eagle Brand and look over the ice cream recipes to use as inspiration. Get inspired and make up (and test) your own recipe! You can make straight up ice cream or an ice cream dessert, but it MUST use Eagle Brand Condensed Milk. It's preferred that you make this without an ice cream maker so we can appeal to the masses, but you can use your ice cream maker if you must.
  2. Blog about your recipe and be sure to include a picture of the finished product! Send us the link to your recipe. If you don't have a blog, send us a write up and picture and we'll get your recipe up for our readers to see.
  3. Enter by Wednesday, August 11, 2010 at 11:59PM EST
  4. We'll have a readers vote the following week and the top two winners will win the prize pack from Eagle.
  5. PLEASE NOTE: We can only ship prizes within the US due to high shipping costs and coupon restrictions! If you fill out the survey and DO win but do not live in the US, you can opt to have your prize mailed to someone in the states. Thank you and sorry for the inconvenience! 

We tried it out and it is definitely pretty cool that you can make ice cream without an ice cream maker. 

Bethany's Orange Ice Cream

Ingredients:
  • 1 can Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk (I used the low fat, and yes, my can got a little crushed in the mail -- but it still worked just fine!)
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 can of frozen orange juice concentrate
  • 1 teaspoon orange extract
Directions: 
  1. Whip heavy cream and sugar until stiff peaks form
  2. Mix condensed milk, orange extract, and orange juice in a separate bowl
  3. Fold whipped cream into the condensed milk mixture
  4. Freeze for about 5 hours
I just pulled mine out of the freezer and had a small dish (I had to sprinkle the mini chips on top because I forgot I wanted to add the chips, but it was yummy that way too). You can see it at left -- sorry the picture is so dark. 

My ice cream didn't harden as I thought it would (may have been the OJ) but it was quite like soft serve -- very creamy, and kind of like an Orange Julius. Too bad Kevin has to lay off the milk products because he LOVES Orange Julius. Definitely refreshing!

woohoo!

is the contest open to contestants from Canada? (like myself!!)

:)

Ivy, we can't wait to see what you post!

Lyndsay, we do hope you'll create a flavor too too, but unfortunately I just heard from our Eagle rep and due to the high cost of shipping internationally, they can't ship to Canada. We have done contests in the past in which prizes can be shipped to a designated friend in the states if you win -- I know, i know, not as much fun for YOU but you could possibly be "friend of the year" if you give the kit to a US friend for his/her birthday!

Best,
Bethany @ Scoopalicious

To the delight of the fast food industry, quick food options have become engrained in the mind of the consumer as a choice between convenience and nutrition. For students and employed adults who don't have time to prepare meals, convenience inevitably wins out almost every time.

I live in New Zealand so had to use another brand of condensed milk. i didn't use the orange juice but the condensed milk was a caramel one and i used a vanilla bean. truly the most yummy homemade ice cream i have ever tasted. also i tried it with 2 tbsps of baileys irish cream and left out the vanilla bean.
