Super Easy Homemade Ice Cream
This is the easiest ice cream recipe ever! In fact, does it even count as a recipe if its only two ingredients? You don't need any fancy equipment either, just an electric beater, a bowl and the freezer.
The ingredients are a tub of double thick cream (300ml) and a regular sized tin of condensed milk (395g). Whip up the cream until it's nice and thick and then stir in the condensed milk. I usually skim a few teaspoons of condensed milk off the top - because I'm an addict but also because the whole tin tends to make the ice cream just a little too rich.
Now the fun part - add whatever you want to create a fun flavour. Vanilla seeds, peppermint crisp chocolate and M&M's are all great but my current favourite is chocolate cookies. I just crumble about four cookies into the mixture.
And to take it one step further, squash the ice cream between two of the cookies and you have Gone. To. Heaven! I freeze the cookies in a muffin tin which stops the ice cream mixture from oozing all over the place.
