Homemade ice cream done right.

I don't really like ice cream. I know! Don't hate me.
I just don't. I like milkshakes. And if the ice cream is dressed up with lots of mix ins, I don't mind a few bites.

But when I saw this version of homemade ice cream over on Kevin and Amanda, I knew I had to try it. (By the way, I met Amanda at the Martha Stewart party last year. I wasn't familiar with her blog before then. Such a sweet lady!)

Whip 2 cups of whipping cream to firm peaks
Stir in 1 can sweetened condensed milk
Flavor as desired

That's it!!
No ice cream machine necessary.
Just pour it into a bowl or tub, and freeze.

The kids thought this was the greatest thing ever.

We made a batch with butterfinger and hot fudge swirled in.

And made a batch with dulce de leche swirled in. Oh good gravy...

Then I got really naughty. I made a batch with dulce de leche and some strong coffee mixed in. Shut up. Caramel Coffee Ice Cream!
Come to mama.
It's like having your own marble slab creamery.

Try it! I dare you.
And let me know what flavor combos you come up with!

I've been waiting for this post. Anxiously waiting. Homemade ice cream for a ministry outreach is on our summer bucket list. This recipe will make it a huge hit for everyone. Thanks for sharing!

hahaha wow I've never heard of that recipe before! And it's of my friends thinks fireworks are lame. Like really?! xD oh to each her own lol!

the coffee ice cream sounds soooo good. I don't even know what whipping cream is...I have to look this up!

Kelley said...

that sounds delish and so easy! We have a hand crank ice cream machine and hubs insist on always making icecream that way but maybe i can convince him of this because caramel coffee ice cream sounds to die for especially if i stir in some mini chocolate chips :)

Ok, why do you have to post things like this? Next time you see me I will be 10 lbs. heavier and it will be ALL your fault!

Amanda said...

Wow, how easy!! thanks for sharing!

You sure made a lot of ice cream for someone who doesn't really like ice cream! It must be that good. I love ice cream so this could be a serious problem for me so I can't try it!!!!

Kate said...


That sounds unreal. I cannot wait to try this heavenly treat;) Thank you for sharing!

Erica said...

Thanks for sharing this recipe. I'm excited because there is no need for an ice machine which means I can make this.

Wendy said...

Mmmmm... That doesn't sound fattening at all. I must make some. I may or may not share with my family.

coffee ice cream recipe said...

Awesome quick idea. In fact I am going to do that tonight? If it turns out nice I will blog about it and let you know. Obv I will out coffee in.


Sarabee said...

So... to clarify... just freeze it after you mix it or does it require an ice cream maker to freeze?? I can't wait to make it regardless... after a massive homemade ice cream fail at our house a few weeks back we are really craving it... so much so that it was my husband who forwarded me this link!
