Who wants some homemade ice cream? In this instructable, I will show you how to make ice cream with only three ingredients and without using an ice cream maker. This little treat is super easy to make, if I can do it, you can do it. If you have any questions or comments put them down below and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
Follow the easy steps or watch the short video tutorial, or do both!
Step 1: Ingredients
- 2 cups of heavy whipping cream (500ml)
- 1 tsp of vanilla extract
- 14 oz of sweetened condensed milk
- plastic wrap (optional)
- Bowl with lid
Step 2: Mix Whipping Cream
First lets add our heavy whipping cream to a large bowl and mix it until it gets all nice and whipped. It will become fluffy with peaks that will form.
Step 3: Add Vanilla and Sweetened Condensed Milk
Next we add our vanilla extract and the sweetened condensed milk to our whipped cream. Turn on the mixer and mix until combined, don't over mix it.
Step 4: Add to Bowl and Freeze
Now we add the ice cream base to a bowl, then add a layer of plastic wrap, pressing it down so it lays on top of the ice cream base. This will help to prevent ice crystals from forming, it is not absolutely necessary however. Then put on your lid and place it in the freezer. After 4 hours it will be like a soft serve ice cream, leave it in for a few more hours or over night to get the harder more traditional consistency ice cream.
Step 5: Serve It Up
Now let's dig in and serve up this ice cream! Enjoy! It will have a different taste then a traditional custard style ice cream that was made with an ice cream maker, but hey it still tastes great and, it's simple, and easy to do, give it a try! :)
