The original recipe makes a huge amount, far too big for the average ice cream machine today.
Six Threes Ice Cream is such an easy recipe to remember; once you make it a couple times, it will be in your memory forever. (3) bananas, (3) oranges, (3) lemons, (3) cups of cream, (3) cups of milk, (3) cups of sugar = Six Threes. Easy as can be!
I’ve adapted my grandmother’s recipe for a basic 1.5 quart ice cream maker and added the pinch of salt and the vanilla that it seems I just can’t skip. We all LOVE this ice cream.
- 1 banana mashed
- juice of 1 orange
- juice of 1 lemon
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt
- seeds from 1 vanilla bean scraped or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 cup milk
- Stir together the fruit, the sugar, salt and vanilla until combined. Stir in the milk and cream and pour into your ice cream maker. Freeze according to manufacturer's directions. Serve immediately for soft serve ice cream or transfer to a freezer safe container and freeze for 2-3 hours prior to serving. Enjoy!
