Introduction: 2 Ingredient ICE CREAM Without an Ice Cream Maker!

This ice cream is simple...only 2 ingredients!
And no ice cream maker!

It's so creamy and delicious!
It's perfect alone or with any mix-ins you can think of!

It does take planning ahead though...

Step 1: 2 Ingredients!

Here's what you need.

2 cups Whole Cream or Heavy Whipping cream (16 fl oz)
1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk (about 14 oz)

Blend together about 4 minutes until thick and creamy.

Step 2: FREEZE!

Put in a container and freeze overnight.

Step 3: Enjoy!

Serve it up!

Sidenote: I LOVE to eat with little Gerber baby spoons.

Now let your imagination run!
Add in some delicious mix-ins...or have an ice cream bar and let everyone mix in their own toppings!
Add fruit for a summer day...or add some hot fudge for a summer night!

Hope you TRY this out! 
And vote for me in the FROZEN food contest!

Thanks!

Hi, how long does this ice cream last in the freezer??

author
MichaelM685 (author)pazmiz2016-09-02

depends on the freezer, if you put it in my freezer, its already gone ;)

author
TheGeek1984 (author)pazmiz2015-06-02

Mines been there for a few days, and it's still soft and easy to scoop. My guess is it will last until it's eaten...lol.

I was surprised that the recipe didn't call for ice, and a short blend, might freeze faster and help those who are somewhat allergic to sugar =P

Hi, to answer any questions as it may confirm you should mix it just before soft peaks otherwise it may for chunky butter :)

Can anyone please tell me the ratio of condensed milk to cream? I am Australian and use the metric system ;)

Any help appreciated x

500 ml whipping cream , and 300 ml sweetened condensed milk

You're welcome from Canada

I tried this receioe my. Mix started to turn yellow wheping the cream. Now it looks like chunks of butter in milk

author
rclee (author)O'DwayneW2016-08-25

that's because you whipped the cream to long and yes you made edible butter. Just rinse it in cold water, yes I mean cold water.add a pinch of salt and use it just like butter. Next time whip till soft peaks form when you lift the beaters

Are you sure you actually bought the heavy whipping cream and not whip cream, and sweetened condensed milk and not evaporated milk or something else.. or that you properly mixed it with the mixer, because i have made this recipe several times and it always mixes very well and is very rich and creamy.

I wanted to make a batch of ice cream for a dinner with many people, so i've decided to make this recipe. I used 3 L of cream, which I first whisked until the cream had the texture of a cake batter. I scratched out one vanilla bean into the cream, and gently folded in 2 cans of condensed milk in the end. So, I used only half the amount of condensed milk compared to the recipe but I would not recommend to use any more or it will be way too sweet! The ratio should be 500ml cream to 1/2 can conensed milk, then it tastes quite like regular ice cream.
Also in previous comments it was mentioned that this recipe is more expensive than just buying icecream at the supermarket. I agree but I must add to it that selfmade things are usually more expensive than stroe bought (think of bread, yogurt, jam etc). For me selfmade things are not about the price but about the "selfmade". But ya, with only two ingredients its also not really that much of selfmade here.
A quick and simple recipe. Good for making huge amounts.

Hi, yes i made this several times and I too found it too sweet and too rich. So, to cut down on the sweetness you recommend cutting down the sweetened condensed milk by half? Should i try 1 cup regular milk and 1 cup sweetened condensed milk imstead? Plus the regular amount of heavy whipping cream.

author
JudyS101 (author)2016-08-08

I made this and it is very, very, smooth and creamy and is very good, but it is just a little too rich and too sweet. The way the recipe is now, one can only eat a very small portion because it is so rich. I am going to try to cut down on the sweetness by perhaps using 1 cup of milk and only 1 cup of the heavy whipping cream, instead of the 2 cups of heavy whipping cream and see if that helps, or perhaps using half the sweetened condensed milk and substituting with milk for the other half. Also, do people know that you can make chocolate ice cream by buying the chocolate sweetened condensed milk? They sell it. Also, does anyone have any ideas of how to make this recipe less sweet and less rich? It is an almost perfect recipe though.

This looks like ice cream but contains about twice the sugar and it tastes unsurprisingly about twice as sweet. It tastes a little like a caramel flavoured ice cream. My 5 year old tried it on berries then proceeded to ask for the berries to be washed off and ate the berries plain. It was okay but I wouldn't make it again. The ingredients were more expensive than ice cream and the flavour was not ice creamy enough.

FlorenceP4 (author)2016-01-20

Need help here..I try to make it but it taste like condensed milk which is not to my liking.. :( even after I mix with Oreo it taste the same. Any idea if I can subtitute condensed milk with fresh milk..?

author
zzzxtreme (author)2016-01-12

so after reading the comments, 1 whipped cream, 1 cup milk, and 3/4 condensed milk for light, less sweet outcome ?

author
gilly-flower (author)2015-11-11

I am going to try it with granadilla pulp which should cut down on the sweetness and make the yummiest ice cream ever!

author
Dennie77 (author)2015-11-04

I made this several times and it came out yummy!!! My niece love it.... And it's super easy! The trick is to freeze it over night or 24hrs so it won't be so creamy and I do recommend cutting down on the condensed milk because it makes it superrrr sweet if you use the whole can.

HelloYouSeemNice (author)PeterP42014-09-30

Well heavy whipping cream only has 60 calories with not much sugar, and sweetened condense milk only has 120 with again not a lot of sugar.So it not a heart attack plus i tried it and if you put greek yogurt in it it healthier.Plus maybe oreos. So no it's not bad for you and won't give you a heart attack.

author
PeterP4 (author)HelloYouSeemNice2014-09-30

Thank you, HelloYouSeemNice, I think I'll stick with the Greek yogurt and maybe coconut palm sugar. Actually, I have already made some ice cream with just Greek yogurt and coconut palm sugar and it was great. Coconut palm sugar is a 1 on the glycemic index so I don't think I did much harm to my body :-) And by the way, You Seem Nice Too !

I just tried this today and it turned out awesome! I used only one small carton of the heavy whipping cream and 3/4 can of the sweet and condensed milk. I also added a teaspoon of vanilla. It...turned...out...awesome! Not too sweet and very light. The consistency is almost like divinity.

My mom introduced me to this recipe. The first try was plain and it tasted like cheese which I wasn't fond of. So second time we added vanilla extract as a mix in and it was delicious! Just made some now-just needs to freeze!

I just made it with sweetened condensed Coconut milk (that I made by boiling/reducing some full fat canned coconut milk) and whipped coconut milk. It looks beautiful! Tastes great so far and is in the freezer right now! Can't wait to try it tomorrow! So happy to have vegan ice "cream"! :D

BlessCBS (author)2015-06-07

My 11 year old son & I made this fof dessert tomorrow. I added a dash of Vanilla Flavor & diced peaches on the bottom. We'll see how it comes out. The sampling before the freeze, taste like a Wendys Vanilla Frosty. Yum. CBS

I saw this recipe on pintrest originally and came here for flavor ideas. I just wanted to comment that I made this over the weekend, and I made s'mores ice cream. It's amazing! I even toasted the marshmallows under the broiler to get the toasty flavor.

I did notice that some people said it was too rich or as one person wrote "buttery", or left an aftertaste. they may have over whipped and gone more to the side of butter than whipped cream. I stopped just before soft peaks formed, and I think this gave me a softer, creamier ice cream.

I made some over the weekend and I agree, I may just continue to make this instead of buying expensive ice cream!

I've been making this recipe for awhile! I first saw it on Martha Stewart haha, but it's superbly creamy, smooth and oh so rich. Taste like it came from an artisan ice cream shop. Although, I think it's the bee's knees, I do agree that for my personal taste it's ultra sweet and the condensed milk flavor can be a little overwhelming. So here's what I do to combat this : I reduced the condensed milk to 8-10 oz and add 6-4 oz of half and half or sweet cream depending on the add ins (if I am adding additional liquid I add less half and half and 10 oz condensed milk, this keeps it from being too thin and runny). This cuts the sugar wonderfully. My favorite way of serving this is with meyer lemon juice, about 1/2 cup, added in to the base. Sooooo good. Best lemon ice cream I've ever had. Also good with chocolate pudding cake.

I would like to make a 4 litre pale ice cream how much whipping cream and condensed milk would I need per 4 litres?

author
thousand-man (author)2014-12-30

I loved this stuff but I will admit it was VERY sweet. I added in around a tablespoon of chocolate syrup and while it did add some flavor, it was still more sweet than chocolate (if that makes any sense). I don't know if adding in something like water would help dilute it, though from what I've read on the comments it seems like you could change the cream or milk to a less sweet version. What would be the best option so you can taste the ice cream and flavor and not be overpowered by the sweetness?

author
doodlecraft (author)2013-07-19

It's just sweet and creamy...sort of a vanilla. You could add any extracts for flavor. You could put candy or fruit in it while it's soft and then freeze it all together. Give it a try and I am sure you can come up with some great ideas for making it again! :)

garyo1 (author)doodlecraft2014-10-31

It would take about 1 tsp of extract for your recipe.

author
vickie.parksemhs (author)2014-10-03

I made this and it is wonderful. Added some dry jello mix, just a little for flavor. Once you try it, you won't care how many calories......keep it a secret tho, your kids will consume all of it!!!

I just got an ice cream maker last year but sure could have used this beforehand! Great recipe.

furlow (author)2014-01-07

This was the 2nd time I made this recipe. First time I over wiped the cream and it had a buttery mouth feel, my mistake though. 2nd time it came out great, but I would have to reiterate that it was too creamy, however I had used uk double cream which contains higher fat than us heavy cream. I'm going to try it out using whipping cream which has approximately the same fat content of heavy cream or maybe even something lighter.

Still its a great recipe!
