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.
Sweetened Condensed Milk
1C boiling water
55g butter or margarine
4C milk powder
1-2Cups sugar depending on desired sweetness
1. Add butter and boiling water to your blender or bowl and stir it blend until melted
2.add 1 cup Milk powder and 1 cup sugar at a time and mix/blend after adding continue until all ingredients are used up then pop into a sealed container and refrigerate
We added lightly cooked fresh cherries to ours but you can add anything you like. Blue berries, caramel ect
