What Do I Need to Make No-Churn Vanilla Ice Cream?
First make sure you plan a little ahead as this recipe needs 4 hours of chill time. You can leave it in to chill overnight if that is easier also.
You will need the following ingredients. One vanilla bean which you can find normally in your local supermarket spice section. Two cups of heavy cream and a 14 ounce can of sweetened condensed milk.
Is it Hard to Make this Vanilla Ice Cream?
Thankfully it is not hard at all. I would say the worse part is the 4 hour wait.
First you will want to cut the vanilla bean in half lengthwise. Carefully scrape out the seeds with a sharp knife and set it aside. In a large mixing bowl, beat on high-speed the heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Next add the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla bean seeds and stir to combine.
Pour this mixture into a freezer-safe container or bread pan. Cover and freeze for 4 hours or overnight.
To serve, remove from the freezer and let soften for a few minutes before transferring to individual serving bowl.
Now you can either top it on your apple pie ( or any pie that you put ice cream on) or make a sundae!
