Vanilla ice cream just sits in our freezer. We are weird but we never remember it's there. I was making jello for dinner last night and I decided to add ice cream in place of some of the water. Mainly I was looking for an excuse to use the ice cream up. This turned out to be super amazing. I'm sure I am not the first person to do this but I am going to take credit for inventing it anyway. This will definitely become a regular.
3 oz. box watermelon jello
1 1/2 cup water
1/4 gallon of vanilla ice cream
Mix jello and water. Boil until jello is completely dissolved. Pour in a serving bowl. Next add ice cream and stir with a spoon until it's all melted. Place in refrigerator for 4 hours. It has a very light, mousse type texture, delicious!
