"My advice to you is not to inquire why or whither, but just enjoy the ice cream while it's on your plate." -Thornton Wilder, Writer

The refrigerator light goes on...

This recipe tests really well and you'll love it. I have a small ice cream scoop that holds 2 tablespoons and it works great.

The best part is that you can choose whatever flavor ice cream you like. I have use Bryer's Double Churn Light as well as Edy's Slow Churned. These products are made richer by whipping the ice cream to produce tiny fat globules so that even "light" ice cream is as creamy as the full fat version. There's even sugar free versions that are great.

Buying Neapolitan ice cream is a good idea because then everyone gets a different flavor -- vanilla, chocolate or strawberry.
