Creamed corn with milk and ice has always been a family favorite. I associate this dessert with Sunday evenings of my childhood. After dinner, my Mom would take out a serving bowl of this creamy dessert and ladle them into our individual bowls. My Dad, my sisters and I would savor every drop of the cold and creamy sweet dish. We always looked forward to this delicious dessert!
We enjoyed this much-loved dessert again a few days ago. There was hardly a drop left in the serving bowl!
Since the heat has been all kinds of intense lately, we decided to enjoy this creamed corn dessert another way. Hello Creamed Corn Cubes! It’s super easy to make.
You can opt to use fresh corn — simply boil and cut off the corn kernels from the cob. We’re loyal to this brand though: Del Monte Fresh Cut Golden Sweet Cream Style Corn. It’s already creamy and already the right amount of sweet so you don’t have to add your own cream. I love it because it takes me back to my childhood every time.
For a serving of two ice cube trays (32 ice cubes), you will need 2 cans of Cream Style Corn, approximately two tablespoons of sugar (optional), 1/4 cup of milk (optional). I like adding milk and sugar for a creamier, more flavorful dessert.
Please ignore that blue bowl in the above image. That’s my bowl from a previous serving of unfrozen cream style corn There’s only one can of corn in the picture. I had put the other one away before I realized it was missing in the pic. Oops.
Pour the two cans of cream style corn in a big bowl. Throw in the sugar and milk. Stir well. Then spoon into your ice cube trays. Freeze for six to eight hours or overnight. Here’s the finished product.
One person usually eats about three to four frozen cream corn cubes in one sitting. I like rounding it off to an exact number, so here’s my serving of 5 cubes.
Here’s a tip: Taking the cubes out of the tray can be difficult, so here’s what we do. Once frozen, we pop them all out of the tray and slide them into freezer bags. Easy peasy.
These Creamed Corn Cubes are yummy as dessert and as a mid-afternoon snack to beat the heat! So, how many cubes would you like in your bowl?
