Homemade Ice Cream without an Ice Cream Maker

While Little Miss was on Spring Break, I decided to try out a new recipe for homemade ice cream. The only reason I chose ice cream and not some other baked concoction is simply because I had been on Pinterest and lo and behold a recipe for homemade ice cream without a machine.

This recipe comes from Kevin and Amanda and is so simple that my 5 year old did all the heavy lifting while her Momma supervised.

So first things first.

You need some heavy cream and some sweetened condensed milk plus whatever mix-ins you desire. I just went with vanilla and mini chocolate chips which turned out pretty good but the nutella peanut butter chip that Kevin and Amanda posted sounds to die for.

Ok here we go. Get yourself a little helper

and have your helper pour some sweetened condensed milk into a bowl

Then watch as your little helper licks her fingers clean


Add in whatever mix-ins you want

Mix your mix-ins with the sweetened condensed milk until well combined. Set aside.

Next, pour heavy cream into a bowl and beat until stiff peaks form

Fold whipped cream into your sweetened condensed milk concoction. Then put mixture in a container and shove it into the freezer. I froze mine overnight and it worked great. I had to let it sit on the counter for a minute (or you could shove it in the microwave and microwave for 20-30 seconds) for it to get soft.

The kids loved the ice cream. Little Miss especially. I thought it was good although I think a chocolate form would be better. I will definitely try making it again with different mix-ins to see how it turns out. Check out the other recipes on kevinandamanda.com and try one out! Great for a hot day when the ice cream truck is no where to be found.
