Easy vanilla ice cream

by Stephanie Brooks

Prep Time: 5 mins, plus freezing

Nothing beats homemade ice cream, but making it from scratch can be daunting. Try our quick method - no fancy equipment, no relentless whisking, just delicious creamy results.

Makes 1.6 litres which will give you about 18 scoops


  • 1 x 397g tin sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 x 600ml carton double cream
  • 2 tsp Nielsen-Massey vanilla bean paste (or use vanilla extract, but you won’t get the little seeds)


  1. Put the condensed milk, cream and vanilla into a large mixing bowl and beat with an electric hand whisk until the mixture is quite thick and stiff, like pipeable whipped cream.
  2. Spoon the mixture into a lidded freezer-proof container and freeze for at least 6-8 hours or until firm.
