Homemade Ice Cream
Friday, March 9, 2012. Found an amazingly easy ice cream recipe without needing an ice cream machine!
All you need are two ingredients!
Heavy whipping cream and condensed milk.
It probably doesn’t really save much money at all since whipping cream is usually around $3 and condensed milk is at $1, but it’s fun making homemade food! Plus, it makes you feel so much cooler knowing that it wasn’t pre-made by someone else.
Whipped up the heavy whipping cream and then mixed it in with the condensed milk.
I divided part of the mixture to mix in instant coffee and the other with vanilla extract.
After freezing it overnight, this was the product! So amazed! It was a bit too heavy on the whipped cream, so to make it more icy, I added some milk, mixed it well, and then put it back into the freezer until it was nice and frozen again.
The product? Delicious, just-like-store bought ice cream! —except better because I made it myself!
A great combination was eating ice cream with some graham crackers and chopped up almonds! Ate it with those two items every time I wanted to snack on some ice cream!
I don’t have an exact measurement on the milk since I simply just poured and mixed until it was at a desired amount, but you can add in milk afterwards if you aren’t satisfied with the result.
I found this recipe on Kevin & Amanda, but I’ve noticed many others have done it as well, so I’m not exactly sure where the exact source is from. But they do have some pretty interesting variations on their blog, so check it out to get some ideas!

Homemade Ice Cream (without an ice cream maker!)
- 1 pint whipping cream
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk
- Whip the whipping cream in a bowl until soft peaks form.
- In a separate bowl, pour condensed milk in and add desired contents (like chocolate chips, nuts, etc.)
- Add the whipped cream in the bowl of condensed milk and gently fold together until well blended.
- Place in freezer overnight or until the texture is like ice cream!
- This is when I added just normal milk and re-blended it to give it a more icy texture to it. But it’s all up to you!
