My first few memories of enjoying ice-creams are very fresh in my mind. Small, perfect white scoopfuls in a plastic cup with a handy wooden spoon. The flavour was Vanilla, always Vanilla. Nothing exotic or fancy…just some good old sweet, delicious and classic Vanilla 😍 And ever since then, Vanilla happens to be my go-to flavour for desserts, specially ice-creams!
Most people will agree with me when I say it’s alost everyone’s favourite flavour of ice-cream. A no-fringe, straightforward Vanilla ice-cream is such a comfort food at times. The summers, for one, call for constant relief and I find some in my homemade No-Churn, 3 Ingredient Eggfree Vanilla Ice-Cream 🍦🍦
There was a time when just three or four flavours ruled the roost…back when we were kids Tutti Frutti ice cream was what most of us kids got and the elders picked butterscotch ice cream or some such basic flavour. But going out for ice cream these days is such a task …I look at the array of new flavours we can try and I am overwhelmed at the choices thrown at me….I almost get confused and pick something I can identify with and make my peace with it😄😄😂….hubby, on the other hand is the adventurous type and keeps trying new flavours…at times, even he’s in for a rude shock and looks at me sheepishly!
Look at the creamy, luscious texture of the ice cream. Each spoonful is melt in the mouth good and has no ice crystals either. Making eggfree ice creams is indeed a treat and so so fun. I have added neither CMC nor GMS to this recipe and it just doesn’t need any! Just some basic pantry ingredients and a bit of prepping is all you need. But ensure that you use good quality Vanilla extract or essence. It’s the Vanilla that will give you the flavour and the beautiful aroma 😊
I rarely add chocolate syrup or any toppings to my Vanilla ice cream but these cute little sugar sprinkles looked too adorable to miss during my recent visit to my favourite baking needs store and I picked it…and these do add a touch of colour to the pristine white ice cream 😍 the prettiest pastel shades ever ☺️
Anyways…so I will share this recipe now, its quick but needs a few things to be done before you start with actual preparation. Let’s get on with it…
Yield: serves 4-5 (makes about 7-8 small scoops)
Equipment: a manual or an electric whisk, an aluminium tin or any freezer safe container to set the ice cream, a large stainless steel bowl, measuring cups/ spoons, silicon or rubber spatula.
400 ml sweetened condensed milk
1+3/4 cup full fat whipping cream (heavy cream/ double cream)
1+1/2 tsp vanilla extract
To begin with, keep the whipping cream (I chilled the whipping cream overnight), the manual whisk or the electric whisk attachments and the large stainless steel bowl in the refrigerator for a minimum of 1 hour to chill.
Next, place some ice cubes on a large tray/ platter (make an ice bed), place the chilled bowl on top of the ice cubes. Pour the chilled whipping cream in to the bowl and using the manual whisk or the electric whisk, whip the cream until it has firm peaks. Took me about 5-7 mins using an electric whisk on setting 3 but keeping the ice cubes beneath the mixing bowl helps a lot in achieving the firm peaks in this heat.
Once, the whipped cream holds the peaks well, add the vanilla extract and the condensed milk. Now, DO NOT whip anymore. Use a silicon or a rubber spatula and gently fold everything together in the bowl. Make sure the bowl is kept on an ice bed all through the process.
Pour the ready mixture into the tin or into the freezer safe container, cover the container/ tin with some cling wrap and set it for 2-3 hours in the freezer.
After 2-3 hours, remove the container from the freezer and pour the mixture into another bowl and give good mix to the half set ice cream using a manual whisk (do not use the electric whisk for this step). Pour the contents back into the tin/ container, cover it with a cling wrap again and let the ice cream set for about 7-8 hours in the freezer.
That’s it, your smooth, creamy and delicious 3 Ingredient, No-Churn, Eggfree Vanilla Ice Cream is ready 😊
To serve, let the tin/ container sit on the kitchen platform for 5 mins before scooping out the ice cream.
I think…after all my love for Popsicles, I can definitely say that Vanilla ice cream is my favourite 😋
