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.
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.
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.
Pop open the chilled can of evaporated milk.
Pour the milk into the mixing bowl.
Whip, whip, whip!
Whip the milk for 40 seconds….
…until it looks like this.
You can see how it filled my 4.5 quart mixing bowl.
Add the sugar.
This is what it will look like after whipping with sugar and vanilla.
You can see that I chilled the bowl with ice cream in the freezer.
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.
Would you like the recipe?
Well, here you go. You welcome.
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.
Just remember, if you want to make these, start a day ahead and make sure your milk is thoroughly chilled.
Photo shoot’s over. The ice cream is melting. Slurp. Slurp.
