Hello all you ice cream lovers! Have you seen this great new book yet? I know I’ve talked about my new book plenty of times before, but in honor of this ice cream social we are having for Labor Day, I thought I’d share a great recipe from the book with you.

It’s my sons’ favorite recipe. In fact, as I was writing this post, he asked if we could make it again. Of course we can! I’ll always find time to make a yummy treat for my family.


The Cupcake

1 basic recipe (see below)

3/4 cup yellow cake mix

1/2 cup rainbow sprinkles

Whisk together your basic recipe and cake mix. Add mixture to your ice cream machine and follow manufacturer’s directions in freezing. Fold in rainbow sprinkles during the last 5 minutes of mixing.

Skinny Vanilla Basic recipe

1/2 cup sugar

2 cups light cream

1 cup 2% milk

1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

Whisk together all ingredients until combined. Transfer your cream liquid into your ice cream machine and make according to manufacturer’s direction. Makes about 1 quart prepared ice cream.
