SUMMER IS HERE! As of May 1 our neighborhood pool opened and it is all in for summertime fun! We count down the last days of school, start planning our water park trips and start making recipes that cool us off in the hot Texas heat. I LOVE making no churn ice cream for my kids. It is easy and fun and is ready in about 5 hours. I like to play with flavors and create memories with treats in between swimming, hiking or an outdoor picnic. There are so many ways that you can play with flavors, too. Just walk the aisles of Walmart and you can see ingredients that will spruce up any no churn recipe. One of my children’s favorite candies is MIKE AND IKE Mega Mix Sour. So grabbing some of the NEW MIKE AND IKE Mega Mix Sour off the shelf always gets happy cheers from my kids (exclusively at some Walmart stores!). In that spirit, I decided to see if I could incorporate MIKE AND IKE Mega Mix Sour into my no churn recipe!
Family activities with my kids ramp up when the sun comes out. We love the pool, the beach, water parks, road trips and more. It is my job to take a lot of photos, to marvel at everything they do and to make sure they have snacks they will love! This year I am planning several family trips within the state of Texas that will make our summer very memorable. But the summer days at home are always a hit too. Especially when I can surprise them with fun treats they love! Like No Churn Orange Ice Cream with a MIKE AND IKE Mega Mix Sour Twist!
No churn ice cream can be any flavor you want. The hardest part of the recipe is blending until you get smooth peeks. But even that is easy with a hand held mixer.
When choosing your add-ins it is important to consider the flavor that will complement the add-in best! Yes, I know, ‘anything in ice cream is good’, and that is my experience too, but I like to play with flavor and mix-ins too!
MIKE AND IKE Mega Mix Sour have a lot of flavor. Get ready to pucker those lips with the sweet taste of sour fruit that you will only want to experience again! I didn’t want to just add them to vanilla ice cream and thought orange ice cream would only enhance the sour flavor! Check out how I made this No Churn Orange Ice Cream with a MIKE AND IKE Mega Mix Sour Twist!
- 1 large orange juiced and rind grated
- 1 lime juiced and rind grated
- 1¾ C powdered sugar
- 2 C heavy cream
- 1 cup MIKE AND IKE Mega Mix Sour (chopped)
- Juice orange and lime to get approximately 1 cup of juice. Grate zest of orange and lime and add it to the sugar. Pour the juice into sugar and stir to dissolve sugar. Add in whipping cream and Whip with mixer until soft peaks form. It should take about 5-6 minutes of constant mixing. Add in MIKE AND IKE Mega Mix Sours and fold in gently with a baking spatula. Pour into an airtight container and freeze until firm. About 5 hours.
Now that you have your summertime No Churn Orange Ice Cream with a MIKE AND IKE Mega Mix Sour Twist it is time to plan those summer trips!
Where are you going this year?
