Easy Homemade Ice Cream

Easy to make, yummy to eat ice cream that can be customized to suit your own taste. It's relatively cheap and requires little baking / cooking expertise, and also makes a fair amount given the minimal effort exerted to make it - I made roughly 3L.

Ingredients and Utensils

  • 600ml thickened cream
  • 1 can of sweetened condensed milk (roughly 300ml)
  • Vanilla essence (if desired)
  • A large bowl (the one that I used had a capacity of roughly 4L, but I ended up only making ~3L)
  • A whisk or electric beater
  • Spatula
  • Flavouring*

* see below for variations on flavours to make, or choose your own ingredients to make a uniquely you combination


  1. Pour thickened cream into bowl, using a whisk or electric beater to whip until soft peaks form.
  2. Add sweetened condensed milk and vanilla essence, continuing to whip until thoroughly mixed. When removing the whipping utensil, the ingredients should almost hold their form.
  3. Add flavouring and continue to whip until mixed or fold through. If using ingredients which have a juice or liquid accompanying them (such as canned mangoes) drain liquid first.
  4. Use the spatula to scrape the sides of the bowl clean and smooth over the top of the ice cream. Place in freezer for 2-3 hours, then fold through mixture if desired to lift ingredients such as fruit off of the bottom. Place back in freezer and freeze overnight or until solidified.
