Fruity Homeade Ice Cream

As a wedding present, my grandpa and grandma gave my parents an ice cream maker. Every Fourth of July my mom made this delicious ice cream for us. The ice cream maker lasted somehow for 32 years!!! This recipe is definitely a family favorite.

**This recipe is for a six quart sized ice cream maker.
If you have a smaller one just half everything.

1 quart whipping cream
4 cups sugar
1 pkg. frozen raspberries (12 oz.)
1 pkg. sliced sweetened frozen
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, leaving
1 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!!!
