  • Bowl with lid


  • 2 cups of heavy whipping cream 500ml

  • Begin by adding the heavy whipping cream to a large bowl and mixing it until stiff peaks form.
  • Add the vanilla extract and sweetened condensed milk and mix until just combined.
  • Pour the vanilla ice cream base into a freezer-safe bowl. Add plastic wrap so it covers and touches the top of the ice cream. Add the lid and place it in the freezer for 6 hours or more. If you like soft-serve it will be ready in about 4 hours.
