July is national ice cream month! So today, I am sharing a recipe from Wendy Paul's cookbook 101 Gourmet Ice Cream Creations. This recipe was SO easy and tasted wonderful! It wasn't too sweet, and it wasn't too tart. It was very refreshing; perfect for a light summer-time treat!
I am also giving away a copy of her cookbook! To enter, please leave a comment on this post telling me what your favorite flavor of ice cream is. To enter AGAIN, please like my facebook page.

To make the recipe, first start out with the basic vanilla recipe below. Then add the ingredients found in the Key Lime Pie Recipe.
This recipe contains less fat than Rich and Creamy Vanilla, and does not have any
eggs in it. Perfect for specific dietary needs, but still has the heavy creamy texture you
½ to ¾ cup sugar
2 cups cream
1 cup 2% milk
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
Whisk together all ingredients until combined. Transfer your cream liquid into your
ice cream machine and make according to manufacturers directions.
Key Lime Pie
Yes, of course I had to include key lime in this recipe book. It wouldn’t be complete
without it. It’s a keeper!
1 Basic recipe
2 limes zested and juiced or Nellie and Joe's Key Lime juice
½ cup crushed graham crackers
Add the lime zest to your Basic recipe, whisking together until
combined. Place mixture in your machine and follow manufacturers directions in
freezing. The last 5 minutes of the freezing process, add the lime juice and the
crushed graham crackers.
