Red Bean Ice Cream
makes 1 quart
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
3/4 cup sweetened red beans
3/4 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup milk
Mix the ingredients and chill in the refrigerator for a few hours until cold.
Churn in a ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions.
Freeze for several hours or overnight until hardened.
Usually you don't add the non-liquid parts of an ice cream batter to the ice cream maker until the end, but I wanted to mash up the red beans a bit and get the red color incorporated into the ice cream so threw them in there from the really beginning. I love how you can taste the flavor of the sweetened condensed milk, and it reminds me of shaved ice without being all icy.
You know, I think this is the first recipe I've come up with all by myself without adapting anyone else's!
