Homemade Grapico Ice Cream

I scream, YOU scream, we all scream for ICE CREAM!

It’s been at least 25 years since Andy’s dad started making us Grapico ice cream and it continues to be a sweet treat for my kiddos today!


The first hint of warm weather and we are pulling out the ice cream maker and a bottle of Grapico!  My whole crew LOVES the crazy good concoction, especially my Emma Mae.  I don’t know if it’s the cool purple color or just the fact that it really taste delicious!   Either way, it is now a staple at any back yard, by the pool, at the river, who needs a reason CELEBRATION!

GRAPICO Ice Cream

  • 1  2-liter bottle of Grapico (chilled)
  • 1 4-oz Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • Morton’s Ice Cream Salt
  • ice
  • electric ice cream maker

This works best using a 2 liter bottle of REFRIGERATED Grapico!  So, pour your whole bottle of Grapico into ice cream maker along with your sweetened condensed milk, making sure you get all the goodie from the can! No need to stir!  Next, alternate ice and salt around container and proceed with ice cream maker instructions.  It usually takes about 20-30 minutes to make homemade Grapico ice cream.  It could take a bit longer if it has not been previously chilled!  When the ice cream maker cuts off, your gonna wanna be the first in line.  😉
