Secret to No-Churn Ice Cream
Good news! It’s perfectly possible to make smooth creamy homemade ice cream, without an ice cream machine or manual churning.
That’s right, no chunks of ice or runny liquid, or the need to track down a bag of rock salt.
The secret is using a can of sweetened condensed milk. It has a lower moisture content since much of the water in whole milk has been removed.
The resulting ice cream a smooth texture that is easy to scoop.
Condensed milk also has a lower freezing point, so the risk of ice crystals forming is reduced.
For a little less fat and sugar, you can make the same recipe and just substitute fat-free or low-fat condensed milk.

It is so good we have to make it when we know that there are people coming over so we don’t eat the whole container by ourselves.
Try a few other variations by adding flavored graham cracker varieties, such as chocolate or cinnamon.
Using the basic ingredients (whipping cream and sweetened condensed milk) allows you to use your imagination and come up with your favorite flavor.
