Simple homemade ice cream and sweetened condensed milk recipe

It’s been really hot for Tasmania recently and I wanted to have a treat for their kids in the freezer. They can’t have commercial ice creams as Miss 6 reacts to additives and preservatives but I don’t want them to miss out on the childhood joy of summer ice creams.

Usually I make ice cream using a egg base but our chickens have been cunning recently and hiding the eggs so we don’t have as many on hand.

I make my own sweetened condensed milk so I decided to try a new simple no churn ice cream that worked out beautifully.

Making sweetened condensed milk is really simple you can do it in a blender, saucepan of just a bowl. I never buy cans anymore which cuts down on cost and waste.
