This pin gave the idea for ice cream with 2 ingredients, and neither one of them is eggs, so I had to try it. I hate pins without links, so I almost didn't even pin it, but then I decided I wanted to try it bad enough to pin it anyway.
Here is the original pin
We tried root beer first, and it tasted like a float. Delicious! Next we tried the orange soda, it did taste close to an orange cream-cicle. I definitely liked the root beer better, but the rest of my family said they liked them both.
The consistency is not exactly like regular homemade ice cream, but it is really good. When we made the orange soda ice cream it didn't get thick enough for my liking, so I stuck it in the freezer over night.
Alright, so I didn't think about the carbonation when I put it in. We all had a good laugh. My mother-in-law suggested that I let the soda go flat before I make the ice cream. She said it might help it to thicken a little more too, so we will for sure try that next time!
It looks different than this if you dish it right after you make it. This picture is after it was frozen over night and then scooped out. I like it better this way, again, my family doesn't have an opinion either way!
