Insanely Easy Ice Cream Without an Ice Cream Maker!!!
This is so insanely simple and easy, we can’t blame you if you’re skeptical... We were!
This is to make basic Vanilla Ice Cream but once you realize how easy it is, you can add fresh fruit, nuts, Chocolate or whatever your heart’s desire might be. What you’ll be shocked by is what you DO NOT need! No Ice Cream machine, no salt, no premixing, no eggs. No cooking!
A Stand Mixer, Hand Mixer or just a whisk if you’ve been cooped up in the house too long and need to vent some frustration!
A pint of Heavy Cream
One 14-oz can of Sweetened Condensed Milk, (NOT Evaporated Milk!)
Pour the pint of Heavy Cream into bowl of your stand mixer, (or any large bowl to use with a hand mixer or whisk). Start slowly and gently whip the cream and gradually increase the speed.
Watch the cream as it gets progressively thicker and go right past the soft peak stage to stiff peaks. You want the cream to be very stiff and right on the edge of turning into butter! (check photo below for consistency).
Note: If the bowl you’re using is large enough, you can follow the next steps in the same bowl, otherwise:
Using a spatula, scoop the whipped cream into a large bowl.
Open the can of Sweetened Condensed Milk and pour over the whipped cream.
Add 1-2 teaspoons of Vanilla Extract
Gently fold the Sweetened Condensed Milk and Vanilla Extract into the whipped cream.
Until it looks like this:
Pour the mixture into a standard loaf pan lined with waxed or Parchment paper. (It doesn’t have to be a loaf pan but the container should be deep. Something that resembles a tub of ice cream is ideal!)
Smooth out the mixture and cover with plastic wrap and place in the freezer overnight or for at least SIX hours.
Peel off the plastic wrap and be prepared to be AMAZED! This is some of the best Ice Cream you’ve ever tasted!!!
