Homemade Soft Serve Ice Cream

A friend shared this recipe with me (thanks, Judy!) and boy was it a hit! Tastes just like soft-serve ice cream. Our freezer always gets things really frozen, so after several hours, ours was pretty hard and scooped just like regular ice cream, with the flavor of soft-serve. I really enjoyed making it because it was inexpensive (less than $5 for at least 8 kid-sized cones) and didn't require anything fancier than a hand mixer to make.


INGREDIENTS:
1 pint (2 cups) heavy whipping cream

1 can sweetened condensed milk

1 tsp extract (vanilla, almond, your favorite)


DIRECTIONS: With an electric mixer, beat the whipping cream until thickened into a soft cream. Add the sweetened condensed milk and extract and mix until thoroughly combined. Pour it all into a plastic container and freeze for at least 4 hours, or longer.

Whipped until thickened and creamy


Adding the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla extract.



The kids enjoying their homemade ice cream!

  2. How much ice cream does this yield? Is it almost 4 cups or does the whipping cream expand when you whip it? Thanks for great ideas!! I just wish you'd have started this sooner in the summer! :)

  3. Jen, we started eating it before I thought to measure it out! :) I'd estimate at least 4 cups or so. I can tell you that we got 8 small cones out of the batch so far, I took a few bites straight out of the container while scooping it out, and there's still a little bit left (maybe 3 more small cones worth?)

    I do still have the ingredients to make another batch, so I'll try to remember to measure before I start eating next time!

    As for starting this earlier in the summer, I'm not organized enough to do something smart like that! ;)

  4. I substituted whipping cream with fat-free half and half milk and used fat free condensed milk. The soft serve came out real good. Thanks for the great recipe!
