     Did you know you can whip evaporated milk to a stage of delicious fluff?

    Did you know that you can make delicious ice cream if you… freeze it?

     When I found this recipe, I flipped. Then I composed myself. But then I flipped again!

     Look at the ingredients list.

     Yep, two. Sugar and milk. Evaporated milk. With vitamin D added.

Whipped Milk Ice Cream Recipe Whipped Milk Ice Cream { no machine }

    If you haven’t tried making your own ice cream yet, I am sure you at least thought about it.

    I can see ice cream popping up all over the web. All of them delicious. Most of them using heavy whipping cream and sweetened condensed milk. Some even eggs. Most of them want you to use an ice cream maker.

    Until I own this little baby, I am hiring my KitchenAid mixer to do the whipping and my freezer to do the freezing.  ( But if you are lucky own an ice cream maker, just skip the freezer part and churn your ice cream in the machine. )

    There are so many advantages to this recipe. It’s fast ( 5 minutes of whipping it together ), easy ( only two ingredients ) and so versatile ( add vanilla extract and you have vanilla ice cream ). And did I say, cost effective? I payed 80 cents for the can of evaporated milk. And one can of milk will make you so much ice cream, you will want to swim in it! I told ya, it will be life-changing. icon smile Whipped Milk Ice Cream { no machine }

    I might be wrong here, but I tried to count calories on this and it came out to 47 calories per serving. Would it be possible???

   Now onto the photo tutorial. Let me show you the magic. icon smile Whipped Milk Ice Cream { no machine }

Whip the milk for 40 seconds….

May+465a Whipped Milk Ice Cream { no machine }

…until it looks like this.

You can see how it filled my 4.5 quart mixing bowl.

May+472a Whipped Milk Ice Cream { no machine }

Add the sugar.

May+478a Whipped Milk Ice Cream { no machine }

This is what it will look like after whipping with sugar and vanilla.

May+489a Whipped Milk Ice Cream { no machine }

You can see that I chilled the bowl with ice cream in the freezer.

May+491a Whipped Milk Ice Cream { no machine }

Whip for 1 minute.

When your ice cream looks like this, it’s ready to be stored in the container.

My Hubby said: “Just like Dairy Queen!”. Soft-serve, fluffy, delicious ice cream. They are not as dense and rich as ice cream made with eggs and heavy whipping cream, but they melt in your mouth and leave you truly satisfied.

I am going to share how to make chocolate ice cream using the same method, so stay tuned! I also have my notebook filled with ideas for this ice cream, so they re going to hang around here, on CCS. icon smile Whipped Milk Ice Cream { no machine }

Just remember, if you want to make these, start a day ahead and make sure your milk is thoroughly chilled.

5 Ice Cream Toppings Whipped Milk Ice Cream { no machine }



  1. Charlynn Schmiedt says

    I just used this recipe to make pumpkin ice cream. I added 1 cup of pumpkin puree (homemade! :D ), 1 tsp. cinnamon and a few dashes of pumpkin spice to the ingredients. It’s freezing now, so I hope it turns out. Thanks for this simple (and cheap) homemade ice cream recipe! :)

  2. Park Chan Chan says

    By repeating it 4 times, do you mean I need to put it in the freezer for 1 hour, and I minute of whipping 4 times? Then, altogether its 4 hours and 4 minutes of whipping?

  3. Sk says

    This is so awesome! Can u reduce the amount of sugar? Will it effect the ice cream? Like texture wise? I was think a 1/2 cup to 3/4. Thanks! :)

    • CrunchyCreamySw says

      Hi! You can as much sugar as you like. It’s just for the taste because the milk is not sweet.

      • sk says

        will a blender work? is it suppose to have a thick liquid consistency? thaks for the fast response! :)

        • CrunchyCreamySw says

          I do think that blender will work – the idea is to whip the milk. Let me know if you try it that way!

          • Sk says

            Will hand beaters work? Or a hand blender? I tried this with milk b4 using hand beaters lol what can I do to make with out a stand mixer? Thanks

  4. Sk says

    This looks awesome! Can I reduced the amount of sugar? will it effect the ice cream in any way? Like the texture?

  5. Kat says

    This is so awesome considering that I’m a teen and I freaking love ice cream. I’m so glad I found this simple recipe. Can’t wait to tell my friends. Thanks. ilysm!!!! :)

  6. Helen @ ruralhome says

    Just made this- can’t wait to see how this comes out once frozen- my previous attempts at ice cream without an ice cream maker have been ‘crystallized’ so I’m really hoping this will be as yummy as it looks! :) I used around 2/3rds of a cup of icing sugar (I’m from the UK so I think that is the alternative to powdered sugar)

  7. M says

    This sounds great! Do you think it would work with sweetened condensed milk instead and then you could skip or lower the sugar?

  8. Alishia says

    I just made this with coconut milk, strawberry preserves and belvita golden oat biscuits. SOO GOOD! Thank you for the recipe

  9. I love ice cram says

    Hi Just wanted to check how long it lasts in the freezer, making it for Xmas day and going to put crushed candy canes it it, but wanted to make sure if ok to freeze for 4 days before eating ?

    • CrunchyCreamySw says

      It never lasted this long in our house so it’s hard for me to say if it will be still good. Try three days and check on the ice cream every day. Give them a stir if needed. Hope this helps! Love the sound of candy cane ice cream!

  10. tryingtomakeit says

    Any way to make this with lactose free milk? Tired of paying a fortune for lactose free ice cream!

  11. Monica says

    I made it using 2% Evaporated milk, 1/4 c. powdered sugar, vanilla, and 3 packets of splenda to cut down on the sugar! A great diabetic treat!

  12. joyfulmama says

    Thank you for this delicious recipe! I’ve made this 3 times in the past 4 days :) I made the vanilla, and then I made the vanilla and added crushed oreos and I also made the chocolate (I added my cocoa with a little of the milk, so it was still creamy). All delicious! Now I’m going to see if I can make mint chocolate chip from this vanilla base! Only I’ll start doubling the recipe, my family of 6 goes through it too fast!

  13. Tia J Soucy says

    So I tried this with Bananas, Chocolate, Vanilla. I’m excited to see how my family likes it.

  14. Emily says

    Still in the freezer but already it looks (and tastes) fantastic. For my flavouring, I added a bit of matcha green tea powder, and it is phenomenal. Super easy, but very creamy and light. Definitely saving this recipe.

  15. Joe Merlin Macapagal says

    Really???..OK I will try to do that but with additional ingredients..thanks for sharing it!!!

  16. artsyari says

    I was wondering if Fat free evaporated milk works and if I sup the sugar for splenda or trivia? Thank you :)

  17. Kelsey says

    If you find a recipe for subbing the e milk to the dry milk equivalent, it seems to work fine so far! :) Used it to make my brother Sea Salt Ice Cream from KH2

  18. Marion Francis Vannucci says

    My Mother used to make this for our family way back in the 19sixties. We had four girls and Mum and Dad and we used to have it for special (or not so special) occasions at Sunday Lunch. I still can taste it now…it was so delicious. Growing up and living in Australia back then was, and still is, the best life a child could have. I salivate over the recipes my Mother, Grandma and Nanna used to make. Caramel Tarts, with proper pastry, Pineapple Flummery tart, and Heavenly Hash Pie were my favourites.

  19. giulianicraig says

    Is it just a 1/4 cup of powdered sugar or 1 and a 1/4 cup? just thought i’d check before i make it….thanks! Sounds amazing though!! :)

  20. CrunchyCreamySw says

    Not sure I know what you mean… The addition of water will make the ice cream have ice crystals and it would be harder after freezing. I would just add the cake mix itself. Let me know what you end up doing! Thanks, Megan!

    • Megan Osborn says

      I just didn’t know if I would need to add liquid to maintain the right consistency. I can’t wait to try it, thanks!

  21. CrunchyCreamySw says

    I used brown sugar successfully so I would say go for it! Thanks, Anissa!

  22. Rhodes says

    Puerto Ricans have been doing this for years! With fresh coconut..YUM!!!! U u can freeze it in individul cups…or my mom would put it in ice trays.

  23. Liz says

    Trying this recipe right now, using 2% Lowfat Carnation brand, it’s taking some time to whip up. Going to add vanilla extract and some vanilla beans.

  24. says

    I just came across your post today, and I am absolutely loving it! There’s such a dearth of recipes out there for your layman (read: poor, underfunded, and machine-less) kitchen cooks that this one is a real refresher. Thank you for sharing it–I can’t wait for one final excuse to whip this up before the summer “ends”! Looking forward to more fantastic and accessible recipes.

  25. says

    Wow!!! 2 ingredients..looks so yummy! I’ve bee experimenting with making a low fat ice cream with milk, gelatin, egg yolks and condensed milk.

    How is the texture of this? Does it become icicly after it freezes?

  26. says

    This ice cream looks fabulous! I love that there’s no need for an ice cream maker. Thanks for sharing and for having a printer friendly button on your site.

  27. says

    I love seeing ice cream recipes that dont require a machine as I dont have one here in Israel. I love that this is so simple to make with only 2 ingredients. How perfect!! Looks wonderful. Thanks so much for sharing. I will for sure be trying this out!

  28. says

    Thank you so much! I don't have an ice cream maker yet although I want one!! And I've been looking for a recipe that doesn't require a machine for ages, definitely going to make this :)

  29. says

    Wow that is a simple recipe, I have been wanting to make ice cream for a while now, but your post has just made me determine to definitely make it this summer! thanks for sharing! :-)

  30. says

    Holy cow are you kidding me!!!! you can make ice cream with just evaporated milk. you are amazing!!! I just recently bought a tiny ice cream maker, why i couldn't i see this before I purchased last week..sigh* lol. im going to try a ice cream recipe soon, but im going to try this first right now : )

  31. says

    My hubby and I made this today using our Cuisinart ice cream maker! It took less than 30 minutes for it to finish! We added about 1/2 cup of 2% milk to cut the sweetness down? It is FABULOUS! Since we don't have any Dairy Queen's here, we think it taste similar to McDonalds soft serve! Thanks so much!

  32. says

    I can't believe how simple this is! I love it! We have an ice cream attachment for the KitchenAid, but it requires a frozen bowl, that I never seem to have room for in the freezer! This is a perfect solution :)

  33. says

    Lovely recipe and a great idea to use evaporated milk Anna!I'm definitely going to be trying this since I do not have an ice-cream maker and there are so many possibilities!!Have a great Memorial Day Weekend :)
    PS-Voted for you :)

  34. says

    Wow, I always make ice cream with condensed milk and whipped cream or Cool Whip.Infact, I just posted my Blueberry Banana Ice Cream and was scrolling though my Reading List when I saw this. I never knew you could do it with evaporated milk.

  35. says

    What a fantastic and easy recipe!! I own a small Cuisinart ice cream machine… but I have been unsuccessful using it to get it to freeze the ice cream properly. I think it's user error.. :)

    PS… I voted for you. :) Have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend!! ~ Ramona

  36. says

    I am not gonna waste any minute! I am definitely trying this out…It is time my machine rests, it'll be busy the whole summer. This is such a great idea! Thanks!

    • Kim McChesney says

      This recipe was WAY too sweet for me and even my crazy sweet tooth of a daughter thought it was too sweet. Two of my kids wouldn’t even eat it. I think we just don’t like the powdered sugar sweetness. Next time I’ll try the sweetened condensed instead to see if that has a better flavor for us!

  37. says

    What a unique way of making ice cream! It looks and sounds really delicious and it is a must try! Way to go, Anna!

  38. says

    I have tried a recipe with just evaporated milk and sweetened condensed milk and it was too sweet and heavy for my liking. I am definitely going to give this a try! I love simple recipes!
