2 Ingredient Ice Cream

funsweets

I have been obsessed with short cut recipes lately…  2 ingredient fudge, 2 ingredient cookies, 2 ingredient cupcakescake mix this, cake mix that.

Sometimes I can’t let things go…

Like my “vintage” Larry Bird T-Shirt that I wear to bed (and occasionally around the house)…

I stole it from my brother like 20 years ago.  I love it.

My husband despises it, but it’s cozy and soft…and you can’t hate Larry Bird.  It’s a proven fact.  Dude has class.

That’s how I feel about short cut recipes…

Would I serve them at a fancy party?  Probably not.  But I wouldn’t wear my beloved Larry to a fancy party either… time and place people.

 

So with that said, I am going to share with you a recipe that is a one way ticket to “elastic pants for life-ville”.

I’m not exaggerating either…it’s already started happening to me.  The prospect of homemade ice cream made from 2 ingredients with no ice cream maker necessary is just plain dangerous.

“Elastic pants for life-ville” get ready to welcome a new resident.

 

So let’s begin.

2 Ingredient Ice Cream.

Here’s all you’ll need:

2 cups of heavy cream and 1 can of sweetened condensed milk.

I learned how to make this ice cream on my trip to Smuckers back in October.  Those people are genius!

All you do is whip the cream until it’s stiff and then fold in your sweetened condensed milk.  Freeze it and  that’s it.  Perfectly delicious and creamy vanilla ice cream.  I’m serious.  I didn’t believe it at first either, but I cross my heart, it’s unbelievably good.

Now.

I have to tell you.  What I love most about this ice cream recipe is that it’s crazy adaptable.

So instead of letting it be, and enjoying plain vanilla ice cream I decided to accessorize it.  Ice cream likes to get fancy too.  It told me so.

So I added 2 more ingredients and transformed my vanilla ice cream into S’mores Ice Cream.  Holla!

 

I had some of these yummy chocolate covered graham crackers in my pantry,,,as well as some marshmallow ice cream topping.  You could also just use Marshmallow Fluff.

I decided to chop up a few of those cookies and put them in the ice cream. I used about 24 cookies…

Then I folded them in.

I transferred my concoction to a plastic container and poured on some of the marshmallow topping.

I wanted the marshmallow swirled in, so I just took a spoon and swirled it throughout the ice cream.

Then I popped it in the freezer and counted the everlasting minutes until it was done.  Approximately 360 of them.

2 Ingredient Ice Cream
 
Ingredients
  • 2 cups heavy cream, very cold
  • 1 (14 oz) can Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • * optional ~ 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. In your stand mixer with whisk attachment on high speed beat your cream until it becomes stiff, approx 1 minute 30 seconds.
  2. Fold in your sweetened condensed milk.
  3. If you are adding in extras, do that now.
  4. Transfer to a container with a lid and freeze for 6 hours.

This looks amazing! I love this idea of shortcut recipes. I’ll have to try it!

Ridiculous! I have both of those things in my kitchen right now. The only reason I’m not making it this very second (besides that I’m in vegg-mode on the couch) Is I would want to do something besides vanilla. Not hating on the 2-ingredients treats over here. Keep em coming!

Shelly, this looks absolutely amazing…dangerous & addictive too! I can see all kinds of flavors coming out of this recipe. My, my, my….the gears are turning now. Thanks for sharing.

So…. this looks delicious, but I don’t know if I could wait 360 whole minutes to break it out of the freezer! Will it work in an ice-cream maker?

1. Apparently, I will not be losing weight anytime soon.
2. Ain’t nothing wrong with a worn out shirt when it’s so comfy. And…
3. Ain’t nothing wrong with sharing your two-ingredient recipes all up in here!

That looks completely decadent, and I would TOTALLY serve that to company. . . . Maybe I’m crazy, but I would!! I would not, however, wear the Lady Bird T to a party. You’re right about that one ;)!

Elastic pants for life-ville – LOL! I’m on my way too, especially if I keep making your recipes! Tomorrow I’m making your Peanut Butter-Pretzel Chocolate Drizzled Rice Krispie Treats and will cut them into heart shapes to give away as Valentines – but not before I have one myself. Quality control and all that 😉

Marisha

This I know I will be making this soon; using Oreo cookies or mint cookies or adding mini chocolate chips or just about whatever my little heart desires. May even try my hand at some rocky road ice cream; mint chocolate chip.
Thanks 4 the recipe

OMG.
And me with Girl Scouts cookies on the way…. I’m thinking Thin Mint with a little cocoa powder or mint extract added?

I’m thinking crushed oreo’s.

I’m thinking chocolate chips and maraschino cherries.

I’m thinking butterfingers……

My waist is not going to love you.

But my mouth totally does!

I was looking for a fun Valentine’s Day activity to do with my son. I think making ice cream could be it. I’m going to fold in leftover red velvet cake. Thanks for sharing!!! Love everything you do.

Caitlyn

I just made it and I’m impressed it took me five minutes to make ice cream! I admit I did enjoy a couple of spoonfuls before putting it in the freezer. I can’t wait until it’s done!!

Becky
