How To Make Homemade Ice Cream

Start scooping your way to your own at-home ice cream parlor!

Who doesn’t love ice cream? It’s the perfect Netflix and chill buddy (well, aside from your family and people you love of course) and can never let you down.

It’s the best comfort food when you just want to chill and relax by yourself or with the people you love. Specially nowadays with the pandemic still looming over us, spending time with the people closest to your heart is a must and a sort of therapy for the stress and anxiety brought about by the lockdown and continuous restrictions because of the COVID virus.

Eating a bowl of ice cream is one of life’s greatest pleasures, and one way to make it even more worthwhile is to enjoy it homemade! Luckily, you don’t need to purchase an expensive ice cream maker to make your own delectable batch. Here is an easy, no-machine-needed recipe for homemade vanilla ice cream. You can customize this base recipe to make an endless list of flavors, too. The best part? All the tools you’ll need are right at home — a whisk and freezer!

Easy Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream Recipe (Base Recipe, No Need for an Ice Cream Maker)


Serves: 4 servings (2 scoops each)


  • 2 cups heavy cream (chilled)
  • 1 can (300mL or 14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk (chilled)
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract or vanilla bean
  1. Using a wire whisk, whip the heavy cream in a large bowl until stiff peaks form. Alternatively, you can use a hand mixer or stand mixer for an easier time. Be careful not to over whip your cream!
  2. In another bowl, mix the condensed milk and vanilla.
  3. Using a spatula, gently fold in the cream with the condensed milk mixture. Make sure that the mixture stays light, as this will give the ice cream its consistency. Fold in any add-ins at this point to make other flavors (keep reading for some suggestions).
  4. Keep the mixture in a resealable container and freeze for at least 4 hours, then your ice cream will be ready to eat!
