I don’t know if there is anything better on a hot summer’s day than a vanilla ice cream, especially if you make it yourself! This recipe is super easy, I remember making this ice cream with my Nana when I was quite young. She’s spent quite a bit of time in hospital in recent months and wasn’t sure where the recipe for this would be, so I’ve had to have a play and am incredibly happy with the result.
395g condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla paste
Whip the cream until soft peaks form.
Add the condensed milk and vanilla paste to the cream and continue to beat until very thick.
Scrape into a loaf tin (or similar that is suitable for freezing) and cover in cling wrap. Freeze overnight (at least 6 hours) before serving.
This recipe could not be simpler, it as fantastic by itself as well as making a delish side for the cheesecake in the picture above. Max (who is nearly 3!) enjoyed the ice cream just as much as I did, it was lovely being able to share a baking (well technically not baking, but you know what I mean) memory from my childhood with him.
