Very simple ice-cream

I just wanted to share this very easy ice-cream recipe. Its very simple, no need for an ice-cream maker and no need to stir half-way through the freezing process.

There are only three ingredients

16 fl oz cream (double or whipping)

450ml /405g tin sweetened condensed milk

1 teaspn vanilla extract

I'm not sure whether the term double or whipping cream are universal but UK double cream is 48%fat and whipping cream is 36% fat. Using whipping cream makes slightly more icecream while double cream makes a denser richer icecream.

Whip the cream until it holds its shape. Add the vanilla and condensed milk and continue to whisk unil mixed. Then freeze.

It really is that simple and its very yummy. Compared to some commercial icecreams it is very rich and probably seriously unhealthy!
