When I indulge in dessert, it has to be good. This Vanilla Ice Cream is easy, creamy adaptable and oh so delicious!

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 hours of hard work before it comes to fruition!

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. M

Fortunately, there’s an incredibly good, 2 ingredient vanilla ice cream you can make it 5 minutes with almost no effort. It’s so incredible

  • Sweetened Condensed Milk – Makes ice cream delightfully sweet, creamy and thick!

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

  1. Whip – In a mixing bowl, whip heavy cream until stiff peaks form.

This recipe is the base for almost all of my no churn ice cream recipes!

I love making this base and dividing it into 3 miniature loaf pans, adding different “flavors” to each! These are some fun variations to try!

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).

You can top it off with strawberry sauce, salted caramel sauce or chocolate sauce!

Tips

  • Cold Cream – Make sure the heavy cream is cold before you whip it.
  • Freeze Time – 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.
  • Add Vanilla – For even more vanilla flavor add Vanilla Extract or vanilla bean.
