Ice Cream From Leftover Pudding

This ice cream was completely improvised. I had about half a cup of heavy cream and a cup of whole milk to use up. I combined them with 1 cup of chocolate pudding I'd made the day before and enough chocolate syrup to sweeten the mixture-about three tablespoons. Ice cream is a custard-based thing anyway, right? You know how I hate to waste. I must admit to a feeling of great satisfaction when I tossed away that empty carton of heavy cream. Every last drop put to use. Because mama hates waste. She does. She really hates it.

No picture because we all know what chocolate ice cream looks like and the kid isn't patient enough to wait for his ice cream while I drag out the camera. Use your imagination.
