One of my favorite treats on a hot day is ice cream.
Okay, I’ve been known to have ice cream for dinner in the heat of summer.
Cool, delicious, creamy.
But, school science experiments aside, I had never made homemade ice cream. It seemed like too much of a hassle. That there would be too many steps involved or that I’d need a special ice cream maker contraption. It turns out that’s not true at all.
This homemade ice cream recipe only takes about 10 minutes of work time and just 4 ingredients. One of those ingredients is the Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk I was sent coupons for. It’s been called “magic” since with it and just a few additional ingredients, you can make all sorts of different things.
Since I just picked up amazing fresh peaches from the Farmer’s Market last weekend, I decided to go with homemade peach ice cream, but you could use whatever fruit you have on hand. Any sort of berry would taste delicious, I think.

Super easy homemade ice cream. I think we’ll try banana next time and since this is so easy, I’m putting my boys on chef duty.
*I was sent coupons to try Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk. It’s been a staple around here for quite a while and I swear it makes all the difference in my Good-Enough-to-Earn-Honorary-Southerner Sweet Potato Casserole.
