No Cook Ice Cream

  • 2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup heavy cream

Blend the sweetened condensed milk, water, and vanilla thoroughly, pour into a freezing tray and freeze until ice crystals form around edge of freezing tray. Or you can add the mixture to an ice cream maker and run until the same consistency is achieved. Whip the cream until it is soft enough to hold a soft peak. Fold the whipped cream into the milk mixture and freeze, either in the freezer or in the ice cream maker. If using the freezer, when half frozen, scrape the mixture from the sides and bottom of the tray, beat until smooth but not melted and freeze until firm.

Variations:

  • Apricot -- Use 1/2 cup crushed fresh apricots and 1/2 cup apricot juice instead of water. Reduce vanilla to 1/2 teaspoon.
  • Cherry -- Use 1/2 cup minced cherries and 1 cup cherry juice instead of water. Use 1 teaspoon lemon juice instead of vanilla.
  • Coffee -- Use strong black coffee instead of water. Reduce vanilla to 1/2 teaspoon.
  • Coffee Rum -- Use strong black coffee instead of water. Use 2 teaspoons rum instead of vanilla.
  • Orange -- Use orange juice instead of water. Use 1/2 teaspoon grated orange rind instead of vanilla.
  • Peach -- Add 1 cup crushed fresh peaches sweetened with 1/4 cup confectioner's sugar to milk and water; omit vanilla.
