Easy to Make Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream recipe

This is an Easy to Make Homemade Classic Vanilla Ice Cream recipe made with 5 simple ingredients and a few quick steps. A recipe of a classic vanilla ice cream which is creamy and soft like shops or store-bought ice creams we have. This is an eggless ice cream recipe and does not need an ice cream maker in its making.

Any store-bought ice cream is prepared with only 3 ingredients. 1. Condensed milk, 2. dairy or non-dairy cream and 3. the flavour or essence of that particular ice cream. So as this vanilla ice cream is prepared with condensed milk, dairy or non-dairy fresh cream, heavy cream or whipping cream, and vanilla essence.

The key ingredients of any ice cream are condensed milk and cream. For making this vanilla ice cream here I used my homemade condensed milk made with milk, milk powder, and sugar. Ice cream can not be made without cream (fresh cream or heavy cream) or any non-dairy whipping cream. If making ice cream without cream, ice crystals will certainly form into the ice cream base. Due to these ice crystals not being able to get a store-like creamy texture and taste.

Generally, the store bought ice cream we have, is prepared with repeated churning in a machine which makes it soft and creamy. However, here we do not need repeated churning to make this ice cream. Just one-time use of a simple blender(used in the kitchen) perfectly works.

Vanilla ice cream is my all-time favourite. I love to mix a scoop with my cold coffee or my son’s favourite milkshakes. I even love to have a scoop with hot brownies too.

Generally, I store a vanilla ice cream bucket in my freezer in summer. However, my kid’s ice cream consumption was increasing during these summer holidays. So I decided to make it at home throughout these summer holidays. It was super easy to make and super tasty as I said earlier. So I thought to share this recipe with you, hope you like it. 

Ingredients to make homemade vanilla ice cream

Full cream milk – Full cream milk is a must ingredient to make any ice cream. The fat content of full cream milk will make a soft and creamy base of ice cream. Always remember, the more fat content you use in your ice cream the creaminess of your ice cream will increase.

Milk Powder– I use milk powder for making my homemade condensed milk, one of the key ingredients of this recipe. However, milk powder is another fat content.

Sugar – You need sugar to make this condensed milk. But if you are using store bought condensed milk then do not use sugar to make this ice cream.

Fresh cream/ Heavy cream/ Whipped cream – Here I have used fresh cream. You can use heavy cream or whipping cream instead. But if you are using whipping cream then use less sugar as whipping cream also contains sugar. 

Vanilla essence – Instead of regular vanilla essence here I have used white vanilla essence. Basically I used it for making the ice cream milky white like we buy from shops. However, if you are not sceptical about its texture you can use the vanilla bean or regular vanilla essence. Do not worry that will give you the same taste.

Let’s see how to make it.

An Easy to Make Homemade Classic Vanilla Ice Cream recipe made with just 5 simple ingredients and a few quick steps.

Ingredients of Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream

  • 2 cups(500 ml) Full Cream Milk

  • 100 g Milk Powder/Dairy whitener

  • 100 g Sugar

  • 2 tsp Vanilla essence

  • 250 ml Fresh cream

Method

  • To make this vanilla ice cream, first, we will make homemade condensed milk. So first take 500 ml of milk(2 cups of milk) in a pan, add 1/2 cup (around 100 g) of milk powder and 1/2 cup (100 g) of sugar. Mix them well no lump should be in the mixture. You can even strain the mixture before use to make sure there is no lump.
  • Start boiling the milk mixture on medium heat, once the milk starts to rise, then slow down the heat and keep your gas oven at a minimum temperature. At the minimum temperature, milk would not rise up and not easily get burnt.
  • But continuously stir the milk while cooking. Always scrape the milk from the sides and bottom of the pan to avoid burning.
  • Cook the milk until the milk is reduced to half of its actual amount. This means 2 cups of milk will be reduced to 1 cup and it will take hardly 20- 30 minutes. Then condensed milk will be ready. Then Turn off the heat.
  • Wait until the condensed milk is completely cool down. You can keep the milk under the running fan if you want to quickly cool it down.
  • Once the condensed milk cools down and comes to room temperature. Then take the blender, pour the condensed milk into the blender, and add 250 ml of fresh cream and vanilla ice cream essence. Then blend it well until the mixture is smooth and lump-free.
  • Pour the mixture into an airtight container, first cover the container with cling wrap and then cover the container with its lid. I used Cling wrap to make it more airtight which helps to quickly set this ice cream. If you do not have cling wrap, you can skip this step.
  • Now put the container in the freezer for 6- 8 hours or overnight. If your freezer is in the highest cooling mode then ice cream might be set in less than 8 hours.
  • Once the ice cream is ready to eat, take it out of the freezer and enjoy.

Notes

  • If you are using toned milk or double-toned milk then use a little more milk powder or a little more cream (around 50 g more) to bring more fat content in your ice cream. As more fat content you will use in your ice cream, it will be more soft and creamy like stores. Otherwise, ice crystals may appear in your ice cream, won’t get ice cream shop like a soft creamy texture.
