Author:  Jessica C Montaño

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Freeze Time 6 hours

Total Time: 6 hours 10 minutes

Yields: 1 1/2 quarts

 

Ingredients

  • 2 cups heavy cream, chilled
  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk, chilled
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

 

Directions

  1. In the bowl of an electric mixer, whip the cream until stiff peaks form. On low speed, mix in the condensed milk, vanilla, and any flavorings.
  2. Pour into a resealable container, cover the surface with plastic wrap, then seal. Freeze for at least 6 hours, or until firm. Keep stored in the freezer.

Recipe Notes

  1. The cream you must use is often called ‘heavy whipping cream,’ this is the best choice for making ice-cream.
  2. Use a hand or stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, whip the cold cream on medium/high speed until SOFT PEAKS form, roughly 3 minutes.
  3. Cold cream and condensed milk is a key.
  4. After you add the condensed milk, whip the mix on high speed until STIFF PEAKS form , that means they will hold their shape. **Do not over whip at this stage or your cream will curdle.

 

Ice Cream Flavor ideas:

*Note: some mix-ins may increase the amount of time the ice cream needs to freeze before serving.

*Add mix-ins to the condensed milk and vanilla before folding into the whipped cream as the recipe instructs.
