Homemade country-style vanilla ice cream

At my home, it wouldn't be the 4th of July without a yummy frozen treat! I love making this no-churn ice cream, because it's simple and doesn't require having to use an ice cream maker.

When I was growing up, my family would always make a gallon of home-churned vanilla ice cream, with an old-fashioned ice cream maker. It seemed like we sat forever taking turns hand-cranking that churn. My poor little arms would feel like rubber before the ice cream would ever get done, but in the end, it would always be so worth it!

Well, times have definitely changed since then. My recipe for country-style vanilla ice cream doesn't require endless hours, or an ice cream churner.

No-Churn country-style vanilla ice cream/Gin Lee


  • 1-pint heavy whipping cream, very cold
  • 1 (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1-teaspoon of pure vanilla extract


Begin by whipping heavy cream until velvety stiff peaks form. Don't whisk the whipping cream too little or too much because you'll end up with runny cream. If this should happen to you, add a small amount of gelatin or cream of tartar to it, and whisk until you get the stiff peaks.

Now, fold the whipped cream into the sweetened condensed milk, then add in the vanilla extract, and swirl in any add-ins if you prefer.

Immediately spoon the ice cream mixture into a metal buffet pan and place it in the freezer. Now, all that is left to do is wait for four hours for it to set up.


Chocolate and caramel can also be swirled together into vanilla ice cream. In fact, any type of add-ins would be yummy. Just start by making the country-style vanilla ice cream, then proceed with your favorite mix-ins.

I find my inspiration in the art of design, illustrations, as well as writing content for viewers like you! As an author, designer, artist, animal rescuer, food blogger, organic gardener, freelance journalist, and contributor, I strive to encourage my readers to learn about topics that they may not be fluent in, as well as share my common knowledge about important elements of interest. Because, as circumstances have it, I do live in an extraordinarily rural area, of which I'm proud to profess. Writing for NewsBreak is an enlightened and enjoyable experience. It's been a collection of milestones for me. Concurrently, you (as well as I) have touched base on so many news levels, and we have all learned from the research I've done on a variety of topics. Although this is just a small token of my appreciation to all of my readers and followers, I want to say with a happy heart, and my arms wide open- Thank you for being you! And thank you for liking, subscribing, and following me! It means more to me than mere words can say! Addressing the rudeness in the room (in a way of speaking). Rudeness and hatefulness is why I turn the comments off on the articles in which I write. The world has enough vulgarity, hatefulness, and arrogance without it having any help. Since having the simple courtesy of manners is lacking, and sharing words of kindness does not abide in a few people. Those few people ruin what's supposed to be educational and an enjoyable experience for all others. I don't have the comments turned off because I can't handle ill manners. I turn them off because I do have children and young adults that are followers. Potty mouths, vulgarity, and hate are not acceptable. Sometimes I get busy and I don't get to turn off the comment notifications until a few hours have passed. This is why sometimes a few comments squeak through. I apologize to those of you who generally are very sweet and I also apologize to my followers who have been a witness to others being rude and malicious. I hope that as my followers, you'll be understanding of the measures that I have to take. Please be kind to one another.
