ice cream recipe with video and step by step photos – easy and quick version of delicious homemade ice cream made with only 3 ingredients.

vanilla ice cream recipe

this quick and easy ice cream recipe is a basic ice cream made with cream and condensed milk. this is a soft, smooth and velvety ice cream recipe (without any ice crystals) and a recipe that does not take much time. there is no cooking involved and also no ice cream maker is required. i had found out about these 2 or 3 ingredient ice cream recipes a year back from kitchn.com. i have tried this vanilla ice cream a couple of times as this simplest ice cream is a favorite at my place.

the best thing about these these ice cream recipes are that they are quick to prepare and do not need any cooking or ice cream maker. so basically these are no cook and no churn ice creams. the ice cream mixture also gets done in 15 minutes. the rest of the time is the time taken for freezing.

in this basic ice cream recipe i have used vanilla extract to give a vanilla flavor. in fact this recipe is very adaptable and you can have any flavored ice cream by adding various flavoring ingredients. so you can use this ice cream recipe base to make various types of ice creams.

variations possible with this ice cream recipe:

  • chocolate ice cream – for a chocolate flavor, then add 2 to 3 tablespoons cocoa powder or drinking chocolate in a bit of warm milk, whisk well and fold along with the condensed milk.
  • rose ice cream – for rose ice cream, add 2 to 3 tablespoons of rose syrup.
  • butterscotch ice cream – for butterscotch ice cream, add ½ cup of crushed praline or butterscotch chips in the ice cream.
  • lemon ice cream – add 1 to 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and ½ teaspoon of lemon zest.
  • mango ice cream – add 1 cup mango pulp
  • tutti frutti ice cream – add ½ cup of tutti frutti (candied papaya peels). i have shared the tutti frutti ice cream recipe earlier.
  • dry fruit ice cream – about ½ cup of chopped dry fruits can be added.
  • pistachio ice cream – add ½ cup chopped or coarsely crushed pistachios.

i have also shared a traditional method of making vanilla ice cream with an eggless custard base. you can check the recipe here – basic vanilla ice cream recipe.

this quick no churn ice cream was very good for my expectation as it was soft, smooth, creamy and delicious. since only whipping cream and condensed milk is used, there is no possibility of ice crystals in this basic 3 ingredient ice cream recipe.

you can use whipping cream having 30% to 50% fat. i always add 2.75 to 3 cups of cream for 1 can of sweetened condensed milk  (400 grams). this much sweetness is fine for us. for the ice cream to be more sweet, you can add 2 to 2.25 cups.

do use a good quality vanilla extract or use real vanilla powder. i usually make vanilla extract at home. i add the vanilla extract to various recipes like eggless vanilla cake, chocolate cake, black forest cake etc. you can also use 1 vanilla bean to make this ice cream. if you do not have vanilla extract or essence, you can add ½ teaspoon cardamom powder, some soaked saffron strands in a bit of warm milk or any fruit or plant based extract. in fact you can use this recipe and make variety of different flavored ice creams.

    • chinmayee, you can use a mixer-grinder but use the blade that is meant for whipping curd or cream. it is a flat round blade. don’t use wet grinding or dry grinding blades. also just whip till stiff peaks are formed. do not overdo as then cream can curdle.
