This is by far the simplest and fastest vanilla ice cream you can ever make 
It is delicious and with this vanilla ice-cream base you can make all kind of flavors.
It was Nigella Lawson that came up with the original idea of using, sweetened condensed milk in her coffee ice-cream years back.

Over the years i made many versions of Ice-Cream made with sweetened condensed milk, this version i share with you today I just love.
I use less 
sweetened condensed milk for this ice-cream base, then before and you don’t need an stand mixer, just a bowl and a whisk!
It is so simple and fast to make, anyone can do this.

When making ice-cream, just use your imagination and taste buds.
For this ice-cream base and for all my ice-cream I use Vanilla Bean Paste, I love it more than Vanilla extract, just google it were to buy it in your country.

I have done so many attempt, for making a dark chocolate ice-cream, that taste just like a gelato, this recipe is ridiculous, easy and so delicious.
this dark chocolate ice cream is a winner, so please check it out, here.

  1. Hej!

    Har du börjat använda mindre kondenserad mjölk för att det ska bli mindre sött, eller är det någon annan anledning? 🙂

    Trank you so much for your delicious receipes!! We love them so much! I have a little question.. Is it possible to change the condens milk with an other intrigient?
    I want to make them with “healthy” Sugar.. best greetings from Germany 🙂 Hatice

    • The sweet condensed milk is not for sweetsness it is so the ice cream will be scoopable ! You can add less. Best of luck
