Fruity Homemade Ice Cream

My friend made this ice cream A LONG while back at a baby shower... but even with the passage of time, I have not forgotten it's goodness. I have wanted an ice cream maker ever since, just so I could make it. Then my sis-in-law started posting all these incredible ice cream recipes and I wanted one even more, and she and my brother made my dreams come true this last Christmas when they bought me an ice cream maker!!! This was the first recipe I decided to try out and it was quite heavenly. (The kids were TOTALLY entertained watching the whole "spinning" process.) I still have some quirks to work out with the maker, but it was absolutely delicious! Start wishing for one so you can make it... maybe next year for Christmas you will get it... but only if you are really good! :)

Fruity Homemade Ice Cream (From Leslie Rogers)
**This recipe is for a six quart sized ice cream maker. If you have a smaller one just half everything- I halved it and it was great.

1 quart whipping cream
4 cups sugar
1 pkg. frozen raspberries (I used some of my fresh frozen blackberries.)
(12 oz.)1 pkg. sliced sweetened frozen strawberries (I substituted blueberries- didn't it make it so pretty!)
1 large can (20 oz.) crushed pineapple
4 bananas chopped
1/2 cup orange juice concentrate
1/4 cup lemon juice

Place all ingredients in big bowl and stir till combined. Dump into ice cream maker cylinder. Add milk to the fill line, leaving1 ½ in. from the top. (Make according to your ice cream maker instructions. If yours uses ice and rock salt, I usually use either 1 1/2 bags of ice, or get a really big bag.) Enjoy!!!
