Orange Creme Homemade Ice Cream

Last year at our July 4th Celebration at church, my oldest came away with third prize in the homemade ice cream contest.  Around the same time, I took the opportunity to share with you how to make her easy Chocolate Ice Cream, and it has turned out to be the all-time most visited post on Trains and Tutus!

This year, she’s hoping to do better than third place, and wanted to try something new.  This is what we came up with.  It’s still super simple (only 4 ingredients!) and is oh-so-yummy!


Orange Creme Homemade Ice Cream

Mix 1 small container cool whip with 1 can of sweetened condensed milk.  Pour into ice cream freezer followed by one can or bottle of orange soda. (We used Orange Cream Soda).  Fill the rest of the freezer up to the fill line with milk and freeze according to your ice cream freezer’s instructions.

That’s it!  I told you, easy peasy & it tastes like a little slice of summer!  Enjoy!

    I would imagine you could strawberry soda or lemon lime like Sprite. I am just wondering
    A substitute for sweetened condensed milk to use with sugar free soda to make for my diabetic husband

      It would be pretty hard to substitute this specific recipe for sugar-free ingredients since most of the ingredients contain sugar. You probably would do better finding a sugar-free vanilla recipe you like and adding in some diet soda.

      To make this diabetic freindly: MYO cool whip (healthier than store bought) and use Stevia or Splenda in place of the sugar, diet soda, and MYO sugar free sweetened condensed milk. Here is a link for a sweetened condensed milk recipe & one for the cool whip:

    Let me say…this did not work too well using a ginger ale

    I was trying to use something I already had, and well, no orange soda, and the only soda in the house was ginger ale.

    It had a very bland taste…so I did add a little coconut flavoring, but it still (to me) wasn’t sweet tasting.
    I am thinking if maybe I get some cookies, or candy and crush up to add some sweetness to this disaster.

    I made the chocolate the other day…and one word…AMAZING!

    Is it just one bottle of the pack or the whole pack of orange cream soda?

    • Laura August 4, 2012 at 11:49 am #

      I just used one, but the flavor was very light, so you could probably use two and be fine.

    Is this recipe for a 4 or 6 qt churn? Look great! Thanks.

      Hi Caroline! It’s for a 4 quart capacity maker! Enjoy!

    I can’t wait to try this. My aunt used to make an ice cream with Orange Crush. I bet this is very similar.

    I wanted to make vanilla, would I use reular milk and add vanilla exract? How much extract do you think?

    • Laura September 2, 2014 at 12:12 pm #

      I have never made it that way, but I’m sure it would work. I’d put at least a Tbs. of vanilla, if not 2. :)

    I have a small ice cream maker that is 1 1/2 quarts. Should I use half of everything and then fill the rest with milk? Or should I make the mixture in a separate bowel and fill the mixer with only 1 1/2 quarts of the mixture and refrigerate the rest? If so about how much milk did you use in your 4 quart mixer?
