Homemade Sweet Cream Ice Cream #whatsyourid

Do you like York Peppermint Patties, Cinnabon, or Cold Stone Sweet Cream ice cream? Then you have got to check out the American Favorites line of International Delight coffee creamers.

International Delight has come up with a fun way to share and connect with other ID fans. They call it the “What’s Your ID?” campaign! With what’s your ID, you simply login with your Facebook account, choose your favorite International Delight Flavor, and it “pins” your taste profile to the map!

The ID that I chose and pinned to the map was Sweet Cream. Except when they have eggnog ice cream around Christmas, I always get the sweet cream ice cream when we go to Cold Stone.

Our family loves ice cream so last year I bought the ice cream maker attachment for my Kitchen Aid mixer and we have had fun creating our own ice cream. When I saw this line of creamers from International Delight I wondered, could I use them to make ice cream? I decided to try it out substituting the International Delight for the cream in my traditional vanilla ice cream recipe. Guess what ~ it worked great! Just follow the easy recipe below for your own homemade sweet cream ice cream!

Homemade Sweet Cream Ice Cream

2 ½ cups whole milk

8 egg yolks (save the whites for breakfast omelets)

1 cup sugar

2 ½ cups International Delight Sweet Cream creamer

2 teaspoons vanilla

1/8 teaspoon salt

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, heat milk until very hot but not boiling, stirring often, Remove from heat; set aside.

Place egg yolks and sugar in mixer bowl. Attach bowl and wire whip to mixer. Turn speed to 2 and mix for about 30 seconds, or until well blended and slightly thickened. Continue on speed 2, very gradually add milk; mix until blended. Return milk mixture to medium saucepan; cook over medium heat until small bubbles form around edge and mixture is steamy, stirring constantly. Do not boil. Transfer milk mixture into large bowl; stir in International Delight, vanilla, and salt. Cover and chill thoroughly, at least 8 hours.

Assemble and engage freeze bowl, dasher and drive assembly as directed in the attachment instructions. Turn to stir (speed 1). Using a container with a spout, pour mixture into freeze bowl. Continue on stir for 30-45 minutes or until desired consistency. Immediately transfer ice cream into serving dish or freeze in an airtight container.

My daughter wanted an ice cream cake for her birthday so I made red velvet cake and assembled her ice cream cake using the sweet cream ice cream and chocolate frosting. It was a huge hit!
