    This is the first recipe that I have tried from the site. I used Bryer’s homemade vanilla ice cream and Minute Maid frozen lemonade concentrate.

    I doubled the batch since this recipe is for a single serving.

    Using just the ice cream and lemonade, it turned out more like a gelato and was not nearly the same color as the photo. Neither of those is a detraction from the recipe and my wife and I loved it.

    I think if you really want the frothy more liquid consistency you’d probably have to add milk or some type of liquid to loosen it up.

    Either way, it’s a good summertime drink.

      For me the best ice cream is Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla, it is amazing. So much better because it tastes more like real homemade ice cream. The other ice creams are all mostly whipped air into it.
