Ice Cream Desserts - Summer Delight

I am not claiming that these desserts are low calorie, however, they are easy dessert recipes and delicious. They are great for the company. It seems like most everyone likes ice cream in hot weather, hence the first two recipes. Remember, moderation is the key.

Delicious Frozen Dessert Recipe

This pineapple ice cream is so delicious. We usually don't wait for it to get too hard as it tastes so good when it is still a little soft.


  • 2 c. Milk
  • 1 1/4 can Pineapple, crushed (including juice)
  • 1 (8-oz.) cup Sour Cream
  • 1 (I5-oz.) can Sweetened Condensed Milk


  1. Combine sour cream and sweetened condensed milk.
  2. Add milk.
  3. Freeze in ice cream freezer according to directions on freezer until partially frozen (actually, almost ready to eat).
  4. Add pineapple to top of the frozen mixture and continue freezing until firm (the pineapple melts it somewhat when added).
  5. Remove the dasher and pack with additional ice and salt and cover as directed in your freezer instructions.
  6. Allow to ripen about 1 hour or store in refrigerator tray in freezer or eat it soft.

Yield: 2 quarts
