  • 4 cups of cold water
  • 1 cup of sugar sugar substitutes do NOT work well in this recipe, it freezes best with sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp flavor extract such as raspberry lemon, orange, cotton candy, cherry or vanilla
  • 2-6 drops food coloring as desired - since this is just for appearances you can completely omit if you prefer


  • In a large bowl, combine water and sugar and stir until sugar is completely dissolved. Add in flavor extract and stir well. Follow with a few drops of food coloring to achieve your desired color. Stir well. Pour into your ice cream maker (this recipe was tested in a 1 and 1/2 quart ice cream maker) and turn on and run according to ice cream maker package directions. Let run for approximately 20-30 minutes or until desired consistency is reached. Serve immediately.
