Creamsicle Ice Cream Pie

Do you have big plans for this holiday weekend?  Maybe a BBQ or other fun event with family and friends?  Well, if it’s a potluck and you have your choice of what to bring, pick dessert.  Then make this yummy Creamsicle Ice Cream Pie that only needs 3 ingredients.  It’s easy and it’s delicious so it is sure to be a hit.

Creamsicle Ice Cream Pie

We are big fans of ice cream pie at our house and it always makes regular appearances during the holidays especially.  Today’s Creamsicle Pie is a little variation on the Pink Lemonade Pie I have shared before.  The only difference is I added orange juice instead of pink lemonade!

Creamsicle Ice Cream Pie

I am a big fan of creamsicles, those yummy orange and vanilla ice cream treats I ate as a kid all summer long.  Creamsicle Ice Cream Pie has the same flavor but it is just in pie form, a little  more grown up.

Creamsicle Ice Cream Pie

All you need is some vanilla ice cream, a can of frozen orange juice and a graham cracker pie crust.  You can buy a store bought crust or make your own but then you can’t call it 3 ingredient creamsicle ice cream pie if you make your own crust!

Mix together the slightly softened ice cream and orange juice.  I just do it with the paddle attachment in my Kitchen-Aid and then pour it into your graham cracker crust.  If you want, you can garnish with some whipped cream and a few orange slices.  A pretty and delicious pie!  Then all you need is a fork.

2015We have been enjoying some summer like days here in Oregon and it has totally got me in the mood for homemade ice cream.  I just couldn’t help myself and this weekend I broke out the ice cream maker and made a batch of one of my favorite, favorite ice creams.  I first shared this recipe in 2008 so it was overdo for a recipe redo and some new photos and I am always looking for an excuse to make malted milk ball ice cream.

Malted Milk Ball Ice Cream

I am a big malt fan and love it in my rice krispie treats, my cookies and even my hot chocolate!

Here is the original post from July, 2008 when I still had kids at home!

We are an ice cream loving family.

Malted Milk Ball Ice Cream

Growing up there was always a freezer FULL of ice cream, in fact at one time we had a freezer in the garage totally dedicated to ice cream.  That was the year my sister worked at Baskin Robbins and they let them bring home all their mistakes – fortunately she made a lot of mistakes!

Monday night I dug out the countertop Cuisinart ice cream maker to celebrate the arrival of summer and to make treats for family night (a regular Monday night occurrence at our house).  We had a short lesson and an activity which was weeding the vegetable garden for 30 minutes.  Believe me the kids were thrilled!

Malted Milk Ball Ice Cream

The best part of family night though is the treats!  I was in charge this week.

I have been on a malted milk ball kick recently.

My favorite treat has been a bowl of Haagen Daz vanilla ice cream with crushed up Whoppers on top – yum!  So I decided to combine the two and make this ice cream.  I used my basic vanilla ice cream recipe and my 2 qt. Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker and went from there.  Adding in Whoppers and malted milk powder.  Put it on top of a waffle cone and yum!

Malted Milk Ball Ice Cream

I like my ice cream a little harder so I put the container full of ice cream into the freezer for a while for it to firm up after the machine shuts off.

Ice Cream

So if you don’t have an ice cream maker but want to give my Malted Milk Ball Ice Cream a try just buy yourself a pint of Haagen Daz vanilla and crush up a few Whoppers and you are good to go!  It won’t be quite as “malty” but it’s a close second.  But you really should get yourself an ice cream maker.  This is my favorite one and the one I use.

Happy Almost Summer!

Malted Milk Ball Ice Cream
 
Ingredients
  • 1½ C whole milk
  • 1¼ C sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1½ C half and half
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • 2 C whipping cream
  • ½ C malted milk powder
  • 1 C of crushed malted milk balls (more to garnish the top with)
Instructions
  1. Mix together all the ingredients except for the crushed malted milk balls and put into ice cream freezer
  2. Once it has thickened  but before it is finished  pour in the crushed malted milk balls
  3. Makes 1 quart

Malted Milk Ball Ice Cream is my favorite ice cream!

Lettuce Wraps are a great option when you are trying to cut down on carbs or are eating gluten free.

slow cooker korean beef lettuce wraps @yourhomebasedmom.com

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a great weekend.  Jim and I made a trip to Seattle and went to a Mariner’s Game Friday  night.  My husband loves baseball and I basically go for the food.  Safeco Field where the Marnier’s play has some good places to eat.  Who can pass up those Rally fries when that garlic scent permeates the stadium and I always like Ivar’s fish & chips!  A dish of Dippin’ Dots for dessert is always a must too.  After eating stadium food this weekend though, I am ready for something yummy and a little better and healthier for me!

Slow Cooker  Korean Beef Lettuce Wraps are the answer to something yummy and healthier.  My husband is gluten free so a lettuce wrap is a great alternative to a sandwich and if you are counting your carbs they are a great choice.

lettuce wraps

Today’s recipe is made using beef bottom round roast.  You get a lot of great flavor from soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, ginger, sesame oil and a bit of sweetness from some brown sugar.

The whole thing cooks for about 8 hours on low in the slow cooker.  After it is nice and tender pull it out and shred it.  Reserve some of the sauce to use over the meat and to help keep it moist.Slow Cooker Korean Beef Lettuce Wraps

The Korean Beef could totally be served over rice but it is fun to change it up now and then and a lettuce wrap is just a fun way to eat.  I sprinkled the meat with some shredded carrot, chopped green onion, a sprinkle of sesame seeds and a dose of slivered almonds which gives it lots of great texture and crunch.   I served it on butter lettuce which I think is easier to eat than Iceberg which is crisper and tends to fall apart easier than the softer butter lettuce.Korean Beef Lettuce Wraps

Enjoy this yummy and healthy dinner idea this week!
