Seriously, this could be one of the best discoveries ever. Homemade ice cream that only requires 2 ingredients and doesn't need a machine? You've got to be joking! I stumbled across the idea on Kevin and Amanda. She linked up a recipe that required only a small amount of sweetened and condensed milk and suggested making the ice cream to use the remainder of the can of sweetened condensed milk. The second I clicked on the link to the ice cream and saw what the recipe was I remembered I had seen the recipe on Our Best Bites a while back and completely forgot about it. I looked for it on OBB and discovered they also had the recipe linked up to Kevin and Amanda. OBB has a great picture tutorial (and instructions to make it in a machine if you have one). Kevin and Amanda has a bunch of variations on the recipe if you are looking for different flavor ice cream ideas. This ice cream was really easy to make. It makes a pretty good vanilla ice cream and I think it would be even better as a base for a lot of different mix ins. Next time, I'm thinking strawberry icecream.
Homemade No Machine Ice cream
- 2 Cups heavy whipping cream
- 14 oz can Sweetened Condensed Milk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract (optional)
Whip 2 cups heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks start to form. Mix together sweetened condensed milk and vanilla. Fold whipped cream into sweetened condensed milk (slowly and carefully, so cream doesn't collapse). Fold until well combined. Pour into container and freeze at least 6 hours or until firm.
