No-Churn Vanilla Ice Cream

There's nothing better than having a bowl of cold ice cream on a hot summer's day but instead of buying it from the grocery store how about making it at home? This recipe is super easy and only requires three ingredients. Plus, you don't have to buy any expensive ice cream makers which makes it super inexpensive and convenient to make at home. You can also flavor this ice cream with chocolate, coffee, cinnamon, etc. and you can add nuts to the ice cream for crunch. Regardless, you should personalize the ice cream to satisfy your sweet tooth. And since this recipe makes a small batch, you can double it and always have homemade ice cream on hand.

1 1/3 cups heavy cream, chilled
6 oz. sweetened condensed milk
1 vanilla bean, seed scraped

Place all the ingredients in a kitchen aid stand mixer with a whisk attachment and let it mix for a few minutes, until the mixture has thick, soft peaks

Pour the mixture into a plastic container with a lid and freeze for at least 8 hours preferably overnight

Whenever you're ready to serve let it sit at room temperature for a few minutes then scoop and serve on a cone or with hot fudge
