How To Make No Churn Ice Cream

To make no churn vanilla ice cream, start by preparing your vanilla bean.  If you don’t have a vanilla bean, you could substitute using 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract.

Next, beat heavy cream at high speed in a large mixing bowl. You want it to form nice, stiff peaks. Be careful, though, to not overbeat it or you could end up with butter!

Add sweetened condensed milk to the whipped cream.

Add vanilla.

Blend all three ingredients well and place in a freezer-safe container for 4 hours.

Yield: 8 servings
