No Fuss Ice Cream

The weather is cooling down so I'm trying to get as many frozen treats in before the outside becomes just as frozen. This Food Fun Friday recipe is for ice cream that you can make at home even if you don't have an fancy smancy ice cream maker.


The basic recipe calls for one 14-oz can condensed milk, 1 pint whipping cream and 2 tsp. vanilla. You can add anything else you want for other flavors. I used Nutella because, well do I really need a reason?


Pour whipping cream, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla extract into a large mixing bowl. Then use a mixer to whip it until stiff peaks form (5-8 minutes).


Warm 1/2 cup of Nutella in the microwave until liquidy (if you have a soften or melt button pre-programmed into your microwave use that. If not change the power to about 30% and microwave for 1 minute, checking occasionally.

Fold in melted Nutella.

Spoon in about another half cup of Nutella (not melted) and continue folding. To form swirls don't mix in completely. Pour the mixture into a bread loaf pan. Cover and freeze for at least 8 hours before serving.


Feel free to lick the spoon, Nutella is the best thing on Earth.

Once frozen enjoy your delicious homemade treat.

What's your favorite ice cream flavor? I think we're all clear on what mine is. :)
