Coca Cola Ice cream
...and that may shock you as well when you taste it : soooooo refreshing and tasty ! If you thought this is the kind of Ice Cream that only kids may enjoy, you will be surprised to see that the whole family loves it !
This is an Ice Cream that I used to make with my sister every summer with Patricia, my favorite sister (and the only one by the way)

We used to have an ice-cream maker that we made sure was working every day...

And day after day, Patricia and I used to try any flavor
Coca Cola Ice cream

Until this day when we ran out if ideas, and so, we decided to pour Coke in the ice cream mix

And what a surprise ! It was so refreshing and tasty !!

And not only WE loved it, but our friends, then the neighborhood, then the whole town heard about this Coca-Cola Ice Cream and tasted it. Everybody was asking for it !

The Coca-Cola Reduction

11. To make the reduction (which concentrates the coca-cola flavor) :

12.  Pour the

Cola (Coca Cola or Pepsi)

(4 ½ Cups or 1 Liter) into a saucepan and cook

on medium/high heat



13. Cook until the quantity of liquid has reduced until you get 400 Milliliters : you should get less than half of the initial volume

1 hour



15.  Place in the refrigerator for at least

2 hours

The Ice Cream Mix

16. Once everything has cooled down, you just need to whisk the

custard

and the

coca-cola reduction

together

17.  If you observe lumps, mix with a immersion blender (sometimes called 'hand blender')

Churning

There are several ice cream makers that you will need to chose from :
  • Ice Cream Maker with a Freezer Bowl

    This ice cream maker has a special bowl, a container that goes into the freezer

    overnight

    . Once it's frozen, you put it in your ice cream maker, add your mix, and let the machine stir them until the ice cream is ready.
  • Ice Cream Maker with a Compressor

    This top of the line ice cream maker chills using a compressor. You don't need neither ice nor bowl : you don't need to remember to freeze anything overnight; when you're ready to make ice cream, just add your ingredients and go

If you are using like me an Ice Cream Maker with a Freezer Bowl, you need to place the bowl and the plastic over into the freezer for

a few hours



Also, clean and dry the container that will store the ice cream when done, and chill in the freezer until you are done preparing your ice cream or sorbet

Churning

18. Pour in the mix onto your ice-cream maker

At first, the mix is liquid, but gradually, it thickens

19. First, the mix is liquid

20. After

10/15 minutes

, the liquid thickens

21. After

30 minutes

(or sooner depending on your device), you get the ice-cream !

How to serve
