Directions

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. In a large glass or metal mixing bowl, beat egg whites until foamy. Gradually add white sugar and vanilla, continuing to beat until soft peaks form. Carefully fold in sour cream until well blended. Fold in any additional flavorings or goodies at this time.
  2. Place the mixture into the freezer and stir every 30 minutes or so until frozen. This can be made without stirring, but the texture will be icy rather than creamy. If you have an ice cream maker, you can put the ice cream mixture in the maker, and follow the manufacturer's instructions.

Footnotes

  • Notes
  • For coffee flavor: 2 teaspoons instant coffee. For rum raisin: Soak a handful of raisins in rum for a few minutes. These are just a few of my favorites. You can really go wild, adding chocolate, fruit, spices... whatever you like. It's VERY versatile.

I didn't really like this ice cream. To me, it was very sour and full of ice crystals. To fix this problem, I invented Granny's Ice Cream II. I used only 3 egg white instead of 4 and I used 1 cup of vanilla yogurt instead of sour cream. Thus, I omitted the vanilla. It tasted much better and tasted more like real ice cream.

Thank you so much for this recipe....I am on a sugar free diet and have not been able to enjoy ice cream in years....I used 1/4 cup of Splenda instead of sugar with one teaspoon of vanilla....This recipe is great...God bless you...:)

This recipe was amazing. I added mint extract, green food coloring and chocolate chips to make a chocolate mint ice cream and everyone loved it. I am now in the middle of making a cappucinno ice cream with instant coffee and cocoa.
