Fourth Of July Brain Freeze

A Fourth of July celebration wouldn't be complete without ice cream. Instead of buying it, why not try making a batch just for the fun of it. If you like Big Red soda, then you'll love it in ice cream form. The electric ice cream maker we have is a 6 quart Rival brand, therefore the recipe instructions might need to be adjusted according to your machines manufacturer instructions.

Bubble Gum Ice Cream
1 (2 liter) bottle Big Red soda
2 (14 oz) cans sweetened condensed milk
crushed ice
4 c. ice cream salt

Pour Big Red & both cans of milk into the container of your ice cream machine. Place lid on container & place into ice cream bucket of your machine. Top with motor and turn machine one to begin churning. As machine is churning add in ice to the outer bucket that encases the mixing container. Alternate ice with ice cream salt ending with enough ice to cover top of mixing container. Wrap a towel around the top of the bucket to help hold the cold in. Let mixture churn until ice cream is formed. Time will vary depending on your machine. Once complete, transfer to freezer safe containers and store in freezer. Enjoy!
