We’re a few weeks into the new year and while everyone is thinking about dieting and how cold it is outside, I’m thinking about ice cream. I am by no means perfect, but I take a different approach to eating. I try to get some protein and greens in, enjoy a little wine and indulge in dessert from time to time. When I do, it has to be good.

We don’t always have the luxury of breaking out the ice cream machine and spending hours beside it while it churns, tossing salt as we go. Fortunately, there’s an incredibly good, 2 ingredient vanilla ice cream you can make it 5 minutes with almost no effort. I’m not sure I can ever go back.

To Make This No Churn Vanilla Ice Cream Recipe, You Will Need:

Did I mention you only need 2 ingredients?!

  • Heavy cream: Make sure it’s cold
  • Sweetened condensed milk

That’s it!

How to Make No Churn Ice Cream

It takes just 5 minutes to make this homemade frozen dessert.

  1. In a mixing bowl, whip heavy cream until stiff peaks form.
  2. Blend in sweetened condensed milk and pour into loaf pan.

Recipe Variations

For even more vanilla flavor add Vanilla Extract or vanilla bean.

I love making this base and dividing it into 3 miniature loaf pans, adding different “flavors” to each, peanut butter ice cream, anyone?

An Easy Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream Recipe

Growing up, we put a lot of effort into making mom’s homemade vanilla ice cream. I’m not going to lie, it’s good. But it requires several ingredients and several hours of hard work before it comes to fruition and even then, I’ve never been able to get a beautiful solid scoop out of it. Make life easy on your self and give this no churn ice cream a go!

Homemade Ice Cream Without A Machine

I love my kitchen gadgets, but the ice cream machine is one of those that is not so regularly bought out! I love that this is just so easy to make whenever you feel the craving for some ice cream! You just need to be patient and let it set (about 2 to 3 hours).

Top Tips to Make 2 Ingredient No Churn Vanilla Ice Cream

  • Make sure the heavy cream is cold before you whip it.
  • Line the loaf tin with plastic wrap if you wish to remove the whole block rather than scoop it.
  • After two hours of freezing, the ice cream will be at a soft serve consistency, freeze it longer if you prefer it to be more solid.
