HOW TO MAKE NO CHURN VANILLA ICE CREAM:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, whip the heavy whipping cream using a stand or hand mixer just until firm peaks form– about 2-3 minutes. 
  2. Next, fold in the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla bean paste.
  3. Pour the mixture into a loaf pan and cover with plastic wrap. Freeze for at least 6 hours.
  4. When the ice cream has fully hardened, serve with the garnishes of your choice.

HOW TO STORE:

This No Churn Vanilla Ice Cream can be stored covered with plastic wrap in the freezer for up to one week.

TIPS AND TRICKS:

  • The vanilla bean paste can be substituted for 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract or the caviar from 2 vanilla beans.
  • Freezing six hours is a minimum! Overnight is preferred.
  • If you have a plastic ice cream container, use that in place of the loaf pan! It will result in a smoother, creamier ice cream.
  • You will want to make sure that the plastic wrap is tightly touching the ice cream when stored so ice crystals do not form.
  • You can double this recipe to have more on hand.
  • Add anything you want into this ice cream to switch up the flavors such as candy, crushed cookies, other extract flavors, etc.
