I know there are a lot of vanilla ice cream recipes out there, but mine is slightly different.
I use powdered milk in my whipped cream to help it keep it’s shape when folding it into the sweetened, condensed milk.
It makes it a lot easier to combine them without the whipped cream flattening out and I find it makes the ice cream even creamier and there is something about the black flecks vanilla throughout the ice cream that just adds to the whole experience.

Let's Make Easy No Churn Vanilla Bean Ice Cream
- 14 oz can condensed milk
- 2 teaspoons Vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract
- 1¼ cups whipping cream
- 1 tablespoon skimmed milk powder aka nonfat powdered milk or Non fat Instant Dry Milk
- Add skimmed milk powder and vanilla bean paste to the cream.
- Using a food processor or mixer, whip the cream until it thickens (this doesn't take long at all with the food processor so check often). When you run a spoon through it, and it holds it's shape without falling back into the gap, it's ready to use.
- Fold the whipped cream into the condensed milk.
- Pour the mixture into a plastic container and freeze for at least 5 hours.
- Remove from the freezer 15 -20 minutes before serving.
