Vanilla Ice Cream Recipe / How to make Vanilla Ice Cream / Homemade vanilla Ice Cream

We love ice creams in our home, well who doesn't! This recipe that I chanced upon is so ridiculously simple that it will blow your mind away! And it is so delicious that it is almost embarrassing to tell people how simple it is to make this, when they gush about how tasty this homemade ice cream is!

This method does not require any ice cream maker and there are no ice crystals formed. With only 3 ingredients, this is the easiest and yummiest recipe I have ever made and this is the creamiest ice cream I have ever had!

Here are some other ice cream recipes

Preparation time 5 mins | Setting time 8 hours | Makes 1 litre
Recipe adapted from - herehere 

  • 1 cup of Non Diary Whipping Cream
  • 200ml of fresh cream ( I used amul fresh cream)
  • 1/2 tin of condensed milk
  • 2 tsp - vanilla essence

1. Take 1 cup of whipping cream and 2 tsps of vanilla extract in a bowl and whip on medium speed until soft peaks form. About 5-6 mins.
2. Add the fresh cream and whip some more. About 3 mins.

3. Add any flavors you want and whip until well blended. Or leave it as such for vanilla ice cream.
4. Add 1/4 to 1/2 tin of condensed milk depending on your taste and preference.
5. Pour in a container and leave it to set in freezer for 6-8 hours.

6. Once it sets, scoop out how much ever you want, drizzle some chocolate sauce/ toasted nuts/chocolate chips and indulge the creamiest ice cream ever!

1. If you get heavy whipping cream, then add 2 cups of that with condensed milk. We don't get heavy cream hence I use non diary cream with fresh cream.
2. You can add 1/4 tsp salt. I prefer without it.
3. If using un-sweetened heavy whipping cream then you will have to add 1 whole tin of condensed milk for sweetness.
4. You can add any flavor you want. Cocoa powder, chocolate chips, fruit puree, chopped fruit chunks, nuts, crushed biscuits, cakes etc
5. For my taste buds, 1/4 tin of condensed milk if sufficient for plain vanilla flavor. But when using cocoa powder, 1/2 tin of condensed milk is needed. Try it a couple of times and change the amount of condensed milk you add as per your taste.
6. If you live in India and are not able to get non dairy whipping cream, then you can use milky mist fresh cream. Use 2 cups of milky mist fresh cream and 1 tin condensed milk. Beat well and add you flavorings and blend well. That's it!

Until next time,
