Most ice cream is made with lots of heavy cream and eggs. It tastes delicious but it’s not very health-conscious. Using milk can be a tasty and healthier alternative to traditional cream. For something a little richer, try an ice cream made with sweetened condensed milk. If you prefer vegan options, you can even make ice cream with coconut milk.
Vanilla Ice Cream with Regular Milk
- 4 cups (960 mL) milk (any level of fat)
- 1 cup (120 g) sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Makes 8 servings
vanilla ice cream with condensed milk
- 14 ounces (400 mL) sweetened condensed milk (fat-free or regular)
- 2 cups (450 mL) whipping cream, cold
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Makes 3 pints of ice cream
Making Vanilla Ice Cream with Regular Milk
- Combine milk, sugar, and vanilla in a medium bowl. Measure out each ingredient and add it to a medium-sized bowl. Use a large spoon to stir the ingredients together. Continue stirring until all of the sugar has dissolved.
- For the milk, any level of fat will do, whether it’s fat-free, 2% or full fat.
- You can also experiment with chocolate milk to create chocolate ice cream.
- Add the mixture to an ice cream maker. If you have an ice cream making machine, pour the mixture into it. Turn it on and process the mixture for about 20 minutes until the mixture has significantly thickened. Pour the mixture in an airtight Tupperware container and put it in your freezer.
- Pour it in a shallow dish if you don’t have an ice cream maker. Ice cream makers are nice, but using one is not necessary for this recipe. Pour the milk, sugar and vanilla mixture into a shallow dish that is freezer-safe. Place this dish into your freezer.
- Stir the mixture every 2 to 4 hours. The consistency of the ice cream can be improved by taking it out every 2 to 4 hours and stirring it around. Then place it back into your freezer.
- If you used an ice cream maker, stir every 4 hours.
- If you did not use an ice cream maker, stir every 2 to 4 hours after the initial ice crystals have formed.
- Freeze the mixture for 8 hours or overnight. After about 8 hours (and periodic stirring) the ice cream should be fully frozen. It should have an ice cream-like consistency and is ready to serve immediately.
- Top with your favorite toppings and serve. Use an ice cream scoop to transfer the ice cream into serving bowls. Top with chocolate syrup, whipped cream, nuts, dried or canned fruit, and anything else you enjoy on your ice cream.
- Return any leftovers to the freezer. They will keep for several days.
Making Vanilla Ice Cream with Condensed Milk
- Put the sweetened condensed milk in the refrigerator. Condensed milk is typically sold in non-refrigerated cans. For this recipe, you want make sure the milk is good and cold before mixing your ingredients. Place it in the fridge for a few hours before you get started.
- Use a stand mixer to beat the heavy cream. Take the heavy cream out of the refrigerator and get to work immediately, since you want to make sure your ingredients are very cold when you mix them together. Start by beating the cream at a medium speed using a whisk attachment. Continue beating until stiff peaks form.If you don’t have a stand mixer, a hand mixer will work fine.
- Turn the speed to low and add the condensed milk and vanilla. Once your stiff peaks have started to form, take the chilled condensed milk out of the fridge. Turn the mixer speed down to low and slowly pour the condensed milk in with the cream. Add the vanilla extract.
- Turn the speed back up to medium. After the additional ingredients have been added, turn the mixer back up to medium speed. Keep beating the mixture until it thickens and stiff peaks begin to form again. The peaks will be much thicker this time around.
- Customize your ice cream with your favorite add-ins (optional). If you like your vanilla ice cream with additional flavors and additives, now is the time to add them! You can add anything you want, so experiment and have fun. Try adding crushed cookies, fruit purees, nuts, cake pieces, chocolate syrup and more to create your own custom flavor. Stir the mixture well to fully incorporate your add-ins.
- For example, to make strawberry cheesecake ice cream, add 1 cup of cheesecake and your desired amount of strawberry puree.
- Mix in 2/3 cup crushed Oreos to make cookies and cream ice cream.
- Add 1/4 cup mango puree for a fruity mango ice cream.
