I keep seeing 2 ingredient icecream knocking around on Pinterest, but when I click through it’s actually frozen bananas. I had a go at that version but it really isn’t anything like icecream. It’s severely lacking in the cream department. It might be healthy but it sure as hell isn’t good, and what use is that? I’d rather have the real deal.
Prepping this for the freezer takes 5 minutes. There’s no churning or fancy equipment, just a whisk and a bowl. You’re left with creamy, smooth, rich ice cream ready for whatever flavour combination you dream up.
For the icecream base you’ll need:500ml double cream 400g condensed milk
This honestly couldn’t be any easier. Add the ingredients to a large bowl and whisk until it forms soft peaks.
Now for the goodies. I decided to split mine and mix 150 grams of Skittles and Jelly tots in with half, a homage to my favourite ice cream from Kitchen Wizard. The other half received the bashed up Oreo treatment.
What have you got in the cupboard? There are so many things you could add to create amazing combinations. Crushed nuts, crystallised ginger, rum soaked raisins, coulis for a fruit ripple, your favourite chocolate bar, cookie dough, chunks of brownie, marshmallows, dessicated coconut, peanut butter, meringue pieces, honeycomb, vanilla essence, lemon curd, maple syrup, Nutella, Baileys, coffee, christmas pudding… I’ll stop there. Whatever you choose, load it up and fold in.
Pour in to a 2 litre tub or loaf tin and freeze for around 12 hours before you dive in.
I don’t care if Summer is nearly over, this recipe is too good not to share!
