I stumbled across this recipe on Pinterest. It’s made by Teresa over at Blooming on Bainbridge. I’m pretty much obsessed with orange soda, so I knew I absolutely HAD to make this ice cream. (Remember my Orange Soda Cupcakes I made awhile back?) Teresa’s recipe calls for an ice cream maker, but I made mine without – so anyone can make this!
I followed Teresa’s recipe with just a few minor tweaks…
Orange Soda Ice Cream – barely adapted from Blooming on Bainbridge
3 cans of orange soda (I used Sunkist because it’s my favorite)
1 (14oz) can of sweetened condensed milk
heaping 1/2 cup sugar
1. Pour sweetened condensed milk into a freezer safe mixing bowl (that has an airtight lid).
2. Stir in the sugar.
3. Slowly add 1 can of orange soda and mix until completely combined. Repeat with other 2 cans. It gets pretty foamy at this point.
**Teresa’s recipe called for an ice cream maker at this point. If you have one, feel free to use that. (Churn until ice cream is solid and store in an airtight container in the freezer.) My ice cream maker churned the mixture for 25 minutes then abruptly stopped working, with no frozen ice cream inside. So I improvised, and it worked…
4. Put the lid on the mixing bowl and stick the whole thing in the freezer for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
5. Remove bowl from freezer and let thaw for about 10 minutes.
6. Scoop mixture into blender and blend just enough to make a slushy consistency. Return to bowl and put back in the freezer for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
Once the mixture is frozen again, it’s the perfect creamy consistency! The flavor is difficult to explain, but if you are a fan of orange soda, you must give this a try!
