Easy-NO ICE CREAM MAKER-2 Ingredient Ice Cream-Take 2: Holiday Recipe Exchange: Week 11 (Vanilla/Vanilla Beans)

Ice cream is okay.

I mean, it's good. I like it. It's just...
I could have chocolate instead.

Don't get me wrong, sometimes that mood hits me and I really want some ice cream like right that second. But in general, there are desserts I'd prefer (like this or this.)

The boy, however, he loves him some ice cream.
It's a part of that whole "refreshing" obsession he seems to have.

Anyway, I'm becoming a big fan of having as much of stuff I make be as homemade as possible. 

Then I saw something about ways to make ice cream with only 2 ingredients (plus mix-ins). Then I saw it again. I was intrigued. Not only because of the short ingredient list, but also-it requires no ice cream maker of any sort. Which is good, because I don't have one (still holding out on getting that KitchenAid Stand Mixer someday, then the ice cream attachment :P)

I had a recipe for a mixed berry milkshake I had been planning to make for Michael (like the nice girlfriend I am). And I decided that was the perfect time to attempt this ice cream.

I only needed vanilla ice cream for the milkshake (as opposed to the various different flavors I'd read about)-so I decided adding some vanilla extract to the base would create what I was looking for.
It worked!
It's awesome. Doesn't taste different than any other ice cream. 
And it.is.so.EASY!
I'm super excited to attempt the different, fun kinds!

(oh, and the boy approved)

2 Ingredient Vanilla Ice Cream





Ingredients:

  • 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • Whatever add-ins you desire (in this case about 2 teaspoons vanilla extract or 1 vanilla bean)
Preparation:
  • Whisk condensed milk with whatever add-ins you may have.
  • Whip heavy cream until stiff peaks form.
  • Fold whipped cream in to the condensed milk.
  • Transfer to an airtight container and store in freezer (at least 6 hours)

Voila!

Update: I made Michael and myself some peanut butter, chocolate chip ice cream. I just guessed at the amounts of peanut butter and dark chocolate chips that I mixed in to the sweetened condensed milk. It is DELICIOUS! Michael freaked out. Look at the beautiousness.


AND--This photo has been featured on Dessert Stalking . Yay!


ALSO-- I now made strawberry ice cream by mixing strawberry preserves in with the sweetened condensed milk. (and later-per Michael's request) stirred some chocolate chips in, as well)

AND--I made dark chocolate ice cream by melting dark chocolate chips and mixing into the sweetened condensed milk. Then, after folding in the whipped cream, I also added some solid dark chocolate chips.

AAAAND-I made coffee ice cream by dissolving instant coffee granules in a little milk and adding that and some sugar to the sweetened condensed milk. Depending on preference play around with adding more sweetness to balance the coffee. Serve with chocolate syrup for mocha :)

And the super easy option of vanilla + crushed candy bars

AND the amazing Browned Butter Pecan Ice Cream--brown 4-8 tbsp. (depending on your capacity for richness) unsalted butter. Toast pecans and chop. Cool the browned butter and pecans, then combine with sweetened condensed milk. Do the rest the same. SO YUMMY.

  7. Hello again! (I commented before about how I whipped the heavy cream into butter, remember? hahaha)

    this time I successfully made green tea ice cream!But it's not PERFECT...it's just a tad bit too...well, creamy/heavy...is there a way to tweak that? I was thinking: a little less whipping cream and a little more liquid milk (or would that totally mess up the consistency?); or whipping the cream a little less? or...I have no idea; what do you think?

    God bless,
    Christine
