I am being compensated by Cans Get You Cooking for sharing this recipe and information about cooking with canned foods. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.

Apple Crisp Ice Cream

Fall is my very favorite time of year. I especially love seeing all the yummy fall recipes everywhere. Apple crisp is one of my favorite fall desserts, so I thought it would be so yummy to turn a classic apple crisp into a creamy, decadent ice cream.

As part of the Cans Get You Cooking Campaign, I have loved sharing recipes using canned foods and talking about my own love for canned foods. Don’t they make cooking so much easier? This recipe uses one of my very favorite canned items: Nestle Carnation sweetened condensed milk.

Carnation Sweetened Condensed Milk

Nestle Carnation sweetened condensed milk reminds me so much of the holidays. And with Thanksgiving and Christmas right around the corner, I plan on using this stuff a lot! I love having it on hand this time of year for easy access if I need to whip up a batch of fudge or a delicious whipped cream for tarts.

This ice cream is such a fun option for Thanksgiving day. As someone who doesn’t care too much for pie (I know, I’m crazy), I would love having something like Apple Crisp Ice Cream to enjoy for dessert. This recipe is particularly fabulous. And I’m not just saying that because I made it! It is SO good.

You’re going to get a chunk of apple crisp in every bite with this ice cream. And the crisp part stays crispy! It’s a beautiful thing.

  3. Add apple crisp mixture to the whipped cream and gently fold together until combined. Place in a 1.5 quart bread pan and cover with plastic wrap. Freeze for at least 8 hours, or over night. Serve with caramel topping and enjoy!

I absolutely love this ice cream. It’s the perfect cold treat for the fall!

And I’m still a firm believer in Cantry Thursdays over here! You know how it goes. By the time Thursday hits, most of the groceries you bought the week before are starting to spoil, it’s the end of the week, and your brain is tired. It’s very likely that dinner is waiting in the pantry with all your canned foods! You never know what you can find by looking through your canned foods. We made Taco Soup last week with some of the cans in our pantry. Take a look in your pantry this Thursday and see what you can put together for dinner!

      I’m with you, Mirtha! ANY day. Nope, no ice cream maker needed for this recipe. You can use either a KitchenAid stand mixer or an electric hand mixer. It’s a beautiful thing!

    I have the ice cream maker attachment for my KitchenAid, but hey, this is even better!!! I used to buy an ice cream that had chunks of apple pie in it, it was seasonal and I haven’t seen it in a couple of years. I only eat the edges of the pie crust, if it’s golden brown.

      Yes, I make the entire apple crisp as-is then add it to the ice cream mix. The really great thing is that the crisp part stays crispy in the ice cream! No sogginess. It’s a beautiful thing.
