Key Lime Ice Cream

We are Ice Cream lovers and make a lot of homemade ice cream in the summer.  We really enjoy different flavors as well as the old fashioned vanilla.  One of the Ice Cream flavors that we have really enjoyed this summer is Key Lime, it just adds a tart flavor to the sweet taste of the ice cream.

    1. Hi Merry,
      I have a Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker, and we just love it. This one has two buckets which really is nice when you have a large group. Cuisinart is carried at most Kitchen and large department stores. Thanks for stopping by and hope you find just the right freezer for you.
