The Secret to Homemade Ice Cream

Story Idea:
From outlandish to insect-infused, despite the flavor combination American’s are obsessed with ice cream. If you're a fan of ice cream, you may know that July is National Ice Cream Month, but you may not know that the secret to homemade ice cream may be right in your pantry.

Do-it-yourself ice cream is easier to make than you think. The secret lies in a can of Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk (the key ingredient behind delectable sweet treats like dulce de leche, flan, and Vietnamese coffee). Combined with milk and sugar, sweetened condensed milk can be the key to making almost any ice cream flavor - straight from your kitchen.  To celebrate here are some quick and simple DIY recipes:
