This no churn vanilla ice cream recipe is so simple to make that you’ll most likely find yourself turning to it time and again, even if you do have an ice cream maker! At least that’s what I do! It makes a rich, silky, velvety ice cream that seriously tastes like ice cream we used to get at a local ice cream parlor.
Learning how to make ice cream without an ice cream maker is pretty handy, I’d say. Three simple ingredients is all it takes for this easy ice cream.
You’ll just need sweetened condensed milk and heavy whipping cream as your base ingredients. You’ll whip your whipping cream until stiff peaks form, about three minutes, and then fold in your sweetened condensed milk and your vanilla with a rubber scraper. For this version, I just added vanilla bean paste. It tastes just like the best French vanilla ice cream I’ve ever tasted.
Once you’ve folded all of your ingredients together, just pour it into a freezer-safe container and pop it into the freezer to freeze. Then, once it has frozen, just grab a scoop and dig in!
Here’s this super simple No Churn Ice Cream recipe. I think you’ll love it as much as we do!
- 2 cups (16 ounces) heavy whipping cream
- 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste
- Whip whipping cream until stiff peaks form, about three minutes. Pour in condensed milk and vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste and gently fold into whipped cream until well-combined. Pour into a freezer safe container and store in the freezer until the ice cream firms.
