This easy recipe does not require an ice-cream maker so anyone can make it. The best thing about homemade ice-cream is you know exactly what goes into it and you do not have to worry about added preservatives and all that ‘other’ stuff. You can easily turn this recipe into any ice-cream that you or your family may like. If you happen to run out of cream like I did you can easily substitute the rest with regular whole milk and a 1/4 teaspoon Arabic mastic crushed.
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
2 cups heavy cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup strawberries, diced
1. In a large steel bowl add cream. With a hand mixer beat on high until peaks are formed, 5 minutes. In a medium sized bowl add condensed milk. vanilla and strawberries, mix well.
2. Carefully fold strawberry mixture into cream until well combined. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and place into freezer. For the next 3 hours (3-4 times) take bowl from freezer and mix well. Leave in freezer over night. Remove from freezer 10 minutes before serving to soften.
