Orange Soda Ice Cream

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

Ingredients:

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

Directions:

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!

Orange Soda Cupcakes

If you haven’t heard, you are about to have your mind blown!

With just a box of cake and a can of soda, you can make cake (or cupcakes)!! That’s it, no other ingredients necessary! Okay maybe you need more ingredients if you want frosting, but STILL, this is exciting!

I have seen it with Dr. Pepper, Coke, 7-up… but who loves orange soda? I love orange soda. I do I do I do-ooo! I grew up on it, and I am just fine – so please don’t judge me or my parents for raising me on the single most sugar-filled kind of soda out there – Sunkist! 🙂

I had a 2-liter instead of a can, so I just measured out 12 oz of orange soda and added it to my box cake powder, and mixed until it was combined. I decided to do cupcakes because they are easier to share… and I recently bought these cute little snowflake cupcake liners…

You can see the batter got a slight tint of orange. 🙂

For my frosting I used my regular buttercream recipe, but I substituted all of the milk and vanilla for orange soda. Most of the orange flavor in these came from the frosting. Yumm!

I added a little sugar to the top for a sparkle!

I had the hubby taste one for me so I could get a bitten-into picture.

The cupcake was sooo moist! Craziness I tell you, this soda non-sense. Can you image the possibilities?
