I wanted something cool and refreshing to serve at our Civil War picnic. I am an ice-cream-oholic, but alas have no ice cream machine. Tragically sad I know, until I found this simple recipe that satisfied my love of cold sweetness. I thought it would hold its own at an outdoor picnic better than quick melting ice cream. The best part, aside from eating it, is that it only has 3 ingredients and is a quite easy to make. In the end my icey dessert went over very well. Mom loved it and that is all the approval I need.
