The simplest and tastiest ice cream with only 2 ingredients and without an ice cream machine (without churn). And by adding different flavors, you have your own ice cream parlour at home. It’s so easy and fun to make that you will try to add every flavour you can think of. One batch gives you a lot of ice cream, so I usually split it and make two different flavours.

This basic recipe for homemade ice cream contains two ingredients, heavy cream or whipping cream and condensed milk. First you whip the cream, then you pour the condensed milk into the whipped cream and whisk together. Then add the flavour you want. Finally, transfer the ice cream into a plastic container with a lid and freeze for at least 5-6 hours. Super easy, right?
When I make 2 ingredients ice cream I prefer to use Vegetable Whipping cream. I like the texture and the taste of it. But of course you can use regular whipping cream if you prefer that. You can even make this ice-cream Vegan by using Vegetable Whipping cream and Vegan condensed milk. The choice is yours.
Let’s talk about flavours
Rum-raisin and cinnamon
When you add alcohol to ice cream, like in the case of rum-raisin flavour, it can make the ice cream softer compared to other ingredients. Alcohol has a lower freezing point than water, so it doesn’t freeze completely. It’s similar to having a bottle of alcohol in the freezer that remains liquid. By incorporating alcohol into your ice cream, it can affect the texture and make it softer.
Ice cream with Rum-raisin and cinnamon: Take a handful of raisins and soak overnight in amber Rum. Add raisins with the rum and a teaspoon of cinnamon to your 2 ingredients ice cream. Mix everything together and you have Rum-raisin/cinnamon ice cream.
Ice cream with Oreo cookies
Ice cream with Oreo cookies: Crush a packet of Oreo cookies and mix it into your ice cream.
Lemon curd Ice-cream
Lemon curd Ice-cream: Add 4 tbsp of Lemon curd into the ice-cream. Blend it all together.
You can even use some flavour essence*. Add a few drops of your favorite flavour essence. I made one with Pear flavour and it was amazing!
As you see , it’s really easy to make the 2 ingredients ice cream. I would love to hear about your favorite flavour.
