    This recipe is so easy I made it for my family and they loved it. Once I added some mint chocolate Oreos with a little green food coloring and it was awesome they loved it. I will suggest anybody who does not have a whole Lotta time but want some really good ice cream that is homemade to try this recipe you will love it.

    So simple and wonderful. I use it as a base for experimenting with other flavors (swap almond extract for vanilla and add some pitted fresh cherries, swap grand marnier for vanilla extract and top with toasted sliced almonds...)
