Perfect for Summer! No Churn Ice Cream Recipe

Last week I posted a link to this article on my Facebook Page. At first I just thought it was interesting. Then I realized that it might be the perfect solution to my dilemma.

Worst Ice Cream Ever
The Dilemma: My wife loves peach ice cream. This is not actually a problem -- I like it too. However, I've had a VERY hard time finding it. So, when I found the Harris Teeter brand Summer Peach ice cream, I thought I was in heaven.  Unfortunately, it was the WORST ICE CREAM  I EVER HAD. It was icy. It was chalky. It was so bad, I actually stopped eating it and threw it out.

Solution: When you can't find what you want, you've gotta do it yourself. So, I followed the simple ingredient list (only 3!) and directions. Then I added chopped frozen peaches.

The Verdict: ABSOLUTE YUM!  The ice cream is very smooth and creamy. It is a little soft, and melts a little faster than "real" ice cream. But trust me, it won't be in your bowl long enough to melt.

2 cups of heavy whipping cream
14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
2 teaspoons of good vanilla extract
A container for freezing. I used a loaf pan.

1) Using an electric mixer, and a large bowl (preferably chilled) make the cream into whipped cream
(don't add any sugar -- that's in the sweetened condensed milk)  Make sure the whipped cream has stiff peaks.

2) In another container mix the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla extract. This is also where I added the chopped peaches. My problem was that the peaches settled towards the bottom of the mixture while freezing. So I recommend taking it out of the freezer every hour and give it a light stir.

3) Fold the condensed milk mixture into the whipped cream

4) Freeze for 4-6 hours, then eat!
