Ice Cream recipes vary from almost zero milk (high cream content) or to a product called ice milk which does not use cream or half and half. If a recipe uses 4 cups of

half and half (half cream, half milk) only 2 cups of milk are used to make 2-3 pounds of ice cream. This means 8 oz of milk would be used to make 1-1 and 1/2 pounds of ice cream.
