I'm a big fan of making ice-cream at home but I've never found a vanilla ice-cream that I really love. They're all custard based/use 5 egg yolks/require cooking or are just plain complicated and taste weird. I mean they're good, but they just don't have that soft, creamy consistency of the store bought ice-cream that I love so much.

And then I discovered this recipe for Easy Homemade Ice Cream without a Machine from Kevin and Amanda. It looked way too good to be true but I can assure you, it's not. I've been making this ice-cream for about 5 years now and it never gets old! Not only is it extremely easy to make, it has that perfect soft texture that I had been searching for! And tastes divine.
Ever better, it is the perfect base for any creation under the sun. Swirl through salted caramel sauce, make a peanut butter version, a mint chocolate chip version - the world is your oyster!
It couldn't be more simple. Pour 250mls of cream into a mixer bowl and whip it until stiff peaks form.
In a separate bowl pour a tin of condensed milk and add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Mix it all together and fold the condensed milk mixture into the whipped cream until it looks and feels like a cloud. Delightful! Pour into a freezable container and throw it in the freezer.
Nope, not even joking. Let it freeze overnight and then eat to your heart's content.
Top with hot fudge sauce or salted caramel sauce and it's ice-cream heaven!
