Homemade Ice Cream (No Churning Needed)

Friday, August 26, 2011

Remember last week when I told you about the 2 (dos) batches of homemade ice cream that I slaved over?  Yea, I'm a liar. There was no slaving involved. None at all.

I ran across this recipe at I Am Baker (although I think it's originally from Kevin & Amanda) and had to try my version of it.  Honestly I'm not a big ice cream fan, but my family is crazy about it so I made several more batches for the weekend.  The recipe is sooooooooo easy but definitely not a clean eat {or healthy in any way possible}.  It's a great one to have on hand for special events though (think baby showers or kids parties) or save your calories for this custom creamy splurge.

Are you ready for this?

Here's what you'll need:

1 (14oz.) can sweetened condensed milk 
(I made one batch with the fat free and the other with the regular...both were great.)

2 cups heavy whipping cream

That's all folks...

Ok, well not exactly {this is the fun part}
The above 2 ingredients make the perfect creamy vanilla-y base. But this is where you get to add any kind of flavors you want!  We used fresh strawberries in one and health/chocolate pieces in another.  The possibilities are endless.

Here's what you do:

1. Beat the cream until stiff peaks form (Do Not over beat.)
2. In a separate bowl combine condensed milk and whatever flavors you want (honey, fruit, chocolate, nuts, protein powder, koolaid...heck, I don't know)
3. Fold cream into condensed milk mixture until fully incorporated.
4. Place in freezable container (I used my Glad plastic containers) and freeze for 4-8 hrs depending on your container/freezer settings.

The resulting concoction will be the most luscious, rich, and creamy ice cream ever. 
It's like a work of dairy art.

Try not to disturb the freezing process though.  I know it's hard not to sample as you go...but don't...give it the time it needs.  You won't be sorry.

Word of caution: A little bit goes a long way so if you're trying to be good share with a friend or make this for a group of people who will gobble it up.  You'll look like Martha Stewart (and enjoy a little indulgence) while maintaining your status as a MENSA member by outsmarting your temptation.

You're welcome. :)
