Ice cream is a summer staple at our house and this easy blender version is a hit every time I make it! I love how quickly it comes together and the boys love the orange flavor!
Hi everyone! It’s Amy from Little Dairy on the Prairie! I haven’t shared a recipe with you for quite awhile. I can’t for you to try this Easy Blender Ice Cream! It’s one of my favorites! Seriously, I can throw all the ingredients into the blender and a minute later I have this creamy orange ice cream. This treat reminds me of eating Orange Push-ups at my grandma’s house, on hot summer days!
If your summers are anything like mine, you want to soak up every last minute of sunshine hanging out with the kids. Who wants to be stuck in the kitchen making treats? Trust me, you won’t be stuck in the kitchen very long when you make this treat. I threw everything in the blender and let it go! When the orange ice cream first comes out of the blender it is about the consistency of soft serve ice cream. If you want it a little more firm you can throw it in the freezer for a few hours. But…if you are impatient like my kids and me, you can start eating it right away. You are going to be taking a walk down memory lane at first bite of this Orange Ice Cream! Thanks to the blender, you can have it ready in seconds too!
- 2 T. dry orange drink powder, such as Tang
- 1 c. half and half
- ½-1 c. crushed ice
- 1 small splash vanilla
- Add all ingredients to blender, starting with ½ cup of ice.
- Blend on high speed, gradually adding more ice, until until ice cream is formed.
- If you would like your ice cream runnier add more half and half, if you would like it thicker add more ice!
Here are a few frozen summery treats my blog readers love, I think you will too!
