Use Sweetened Condensed Milk for Easy, Homemade, No-Machine Ice Cream

Share

Making homemade ice cream is easy. We’ve even shown you how to make it without a machine. This method from America’s Test Kitchen is even simpler though, and produces super smooth, super chocolatey ice cream that scoops and keeps in the freezer just like anything you’d get at the store.http://lifehacker.com/make-delicious…

The video here shows you how to do everything, step by step. You’ll need a few ingredients, like heavy cream, instant coffee, and chocolate, but the killer is sweetened condensed milk, which keeps everything velvety smooth. The only machine you’ll need for this is a microwave and a mixer, although the mixer itself is arguable—you could get the soft peaks you’ll need from the heavy cream by hand (it’ll just take some time and some elbow grease.)

The whole process will take you about 15 minutes or so, but you’ll need to let the ice cream sit in the freezer until it’s firm (or to your desired firmness.) Once it’s set up, you’ll have ice cream that’s smooth, chocolatey, and unlike other no-cook or quick ice cream recipes, actually scoops, tastes, and melts like regular ice cream, instead of “ice cream with something missing.” When you’re ready to add some flavor beyond chocolate, try this foolproof ice cream recipe we posted over on Skillet—it’s similar, but adds great berry flavors to the mix.http://skillet.lifehacker.com/a-foolproof-5-…
