My mother used to make this. I wouldn't compare it to ice cream but rather call it a frozen dairy dessert. I added some pureed fresh peaches that were getting a bit soft, and a little cinnamon. Delicious and light, since this is mostly air. Air doesn't have any calories either!

Whenever I have a can of milk that is needed to be used up by expiry date, I make half of recipe in my icecream maker. It is not a super hard icecream but it is tasty and easy and delicious when topped with a sauce and nuts. Thank you...it is also an economical recipe as cream is getting very costly. Thank you for submitting this classic.

This was a beautiful creamy icecream! I halved the recipe and used light evaporated milk. Next time I might rry using splenda to cut down on calories again. A definate keeper!

I have been looking for this recipe for ages. My mum used to make it when I was a kid back in the fifties and it is sensational ice cream. I tried a variation with 1 can of Lite Carnation milk and 1 can of creamy carnation milk (both evaporated of course) and it tastes just as good. Regards, Peter O'Neill SYDNEY, AUST.

Very disappointing. I don't know what I was expecting, but the result was cloyingly sweet and tasted strongly of the can. I think I'll stick to the recipe that calls for real cream.
