So where were you last night for Valentine’s? We were home catching up on a Pinoy teleserye on iWantTV and eating our homemade creamy Vanilla Ice Cream.
Since Sunday is a work day for my husband and we’re on a really tight budget, I thought it would be best for us to have a home date when he gets back from the office. So I took pains in carefully writing down our menu and supermarket items so that I could prepare something a little more special for the evening.
Anyway, the Vanilla Ice Cream turned out perfect! It was pretty to look at, tasted creamy in my mouth and oh so delish! The kids thought it was fantastic too. In case you noticed, our home date became a family date. Long story on how that happened.
The Ice Cream wasn’t part of the plan. I originally wanted to bake Chocolate Cake by Chef Nikko but the supermarket ran out of cocoa (which I thought was weird considering cocoa is a basic product) so I tossed the plan out altogether and decided to just simplify things.
I came across a simple Vanilla Ice Cream recipe on the web and though I really wanted to go for Avocado, I thought that I should just stick to the basics for my first time. I had no other dessert in my menu after all, so I didn’t want to blow this one.
Besides, my two younger kids prefer Vanilla (and flavors like Macapuno, Mantecado, Mango and Ube) over Chocolate. Go figure!
So anyway, here are the ingredients I used:
1 tetra pack (300g) of Condensed milk
2 tetra packs (600g) of Alaska All Purpose Cream
1 tsp Ferna Vanilla extract
How to make:
1. In a blender, put together condensed milk and 2 packs all purpose cream.
2. Add in the Vanilla extract.
3. Blend for 2 minutes (or until blended well).
Note: The original recipe says you need to use an electric hand-held whisk for the mixture to become stiff. I don’t have that but I saw a tutorial on YouTube that used a blender. My blender did not have any speed options (another tutorial says it needs to be on medium speed to stiffen) and it was past midnight, I was afraid the neighbor below us would be awakened by the noise, I couldn’t wait to find out if blending it would stiffen the mixture. However, even without a stiff mix, our Ice Cream was still good.
4. Pour into a tin container and cover with cling wrap. Or in my case, I used a microwavable glass container with a lid. Then freeze until ready. I made our Ice Cream at 1:30 AM and served it after dinner.
Note: If your Ice Cream is too hard, just leave it on the counter for a few minutes to soften a bit.
According to the original recipe, the secret is the condensed milk. It’s what gives the Ice Cream the creamy texture. This Ice Cream really tastes like something you’d buy at the store, seriously. I’m really going to make more after this for sure.
I’ve already some other flavors to experiment with, like Chocolate, Double Dutch, Cookies & Cream; and Avocado seems like a refreshing flavor. Been dying to make one for months!
I’ll share my Ice Cream experimentations with you soon. For the meantime, enjoy your Vanilla Ice Cream. Don’t forget the drill! Tag @fullyhousewifed on Facebook or IG if you’re posting your Ice Cream creations too, okay?
Thanks sis! Bookmarked kona to
I’m not a Vanilla Ice Cream lover but napasarap ako dito. Hehe. 🙂
That looks good! Will try your recipe May 🙂
That looks good! Will try your recipe May.
Masarap sya, aside from it being very easy to make. Condensed milk lang pala ang sikreto haha!
Wow! Looks great for the kids.. I’ll bookmark this for the weekend! Thanks! 🙂
Super thank you. We have all the ingredients now and we will try this NOW. hahaha. excited. We all love vanilla ice cream. Kindly share also the avocado ha. ihihi. Thanks again.
Hi Berlin! You’re welcome. Tag me if you’re posting on FB or IG okay? 🙂 I will surely post the recipes for the other flavors.:)
Bkit kelangan tetra pack at hindi canned? hihihi.. 🙂 I will try this at home!!
Haha, actually it’s because of the proportions. That’s why I also specified Alaska. I threw the cartons away and forgot to check the weight printed on the pack, hahahaha. 🙂
Secondly, tetra packed liquids are said to be safer for health than canned ones.
So alaska dapat? I am really really doing this at home. Yay!!
My father in law knows some recipe for the ice cream! He made a lot when my twins turned one! I haven’t tried the manual thing because my partner said they are using a machine for making it halo.
Ah yeah. That’s an Ice Cream Maker. But since a lot of people don’t own one, foodies have come up with no churn recipes so we can also enjoy homemade Ice Cream without worrying about the machine. I used a blender on this one but I think there are others that don’t even require a blender for their recipes.
We make our own ice cream at home also. But I love doing it the old-fashion way (churn churn churn). 🙂
I’ve never experimented making icecream at home. Somehow never felt it. But your avacado option sounds interesting. I might try that though.
This is very interesting. I would love to try it. I love how simple the ingredients are. I think this is something I should most definitely make with my 2 younger brothers, 15 and 8. I know for a fact they would enjoy this. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
It’s for everyone, hehe. 🙂 Try topping it with chocolate syrup, nuts and cherry.
Wow, it looks like one of those commercially made ice cream! Thanks for sharing the recipe. We’ll try this at home, too.
Oh em gee, May! Nag-crave tuloy ako! Diet diet na nga eh! Hahaha
Haha! 🙂 Daliii do this, your kids will love it.
I have tried this before and I mixed it by hand. It is turned out great- smooth and creamy.
It’s great to know that hand-mixing works just as great. 🙂
We have also tried making our own ice cream and it is fun..turned out really yummy! Thanks for this one too.
Sounds great. That’s such an easy recipe! I can’t believe I haven’t done it. Thanks for sharing! I’m going to try this too!
I love ice cream. I will try doing this recipe and test out different flavors of ice cream.
Looks so yummy! Hmmmm, this summer planning to make my own ice cream. Bookmark this post. thanks.
I love this! It reminds me of an experiment in Chem class in college, which I don’t think I was successful at but maybe if I try it this time, it might just work. I’m excited to try this at home.
Believe me, you will succeed doing this one. 🙂
Wow in just 3 ingredients may vanilla ice cream na! I would love to try this! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
Yes diba? Hindi pa nga ako mahilig sa Vanilla pero nagustuhan ko to, haha.
It looks so tempting and nothing can be great than homemade with love. My hands are itching to make one now.
wow, the recipe looks simple and easy. I havent tried making ice cream but this i will. Thanks for your recipe!
Thanks for the easy to do recipe. I might be trying it out on one of those weekend because my family loves ice cream too.
Looks very easy plus I have all ingredients available at home! Will do this soon since my eldest loooves vanilla ice cream 🙂
Homemade ice-cream! I’m not a fan of vanilla flavour… I prefer mint and chocolate! But I bet this can be made with addition of flavouring and mixture! Thanks for sharing!
That looks creamy and delicious, should try making my own ice cream with different flavours too! What other flavours have you tried with this recipe babe? 🙂
I’ve only done this one but I plan to try Avocado, Double Dutch, and Cookies and Cream very soon. Will blog about the other flavors when I’m done. 🙂
Loved this recipe. Easy to make and kids will lap it up instantly. Thanks for the detailed post.
I’ve watched a couple of youtube videos on this but haven’t tried any hehe.I might try your recipe thanks!
I have watched several youtube videos about making ice cream but haven’t tried any..I might try this soon.thanks
Cool! Vanilla icecream is my favorite kasi its perfect to partner with fruits!
This might be fun to do but I do not know if I want to do it. I will just buy the ice cream ready to eat from the grocery. Hehe.
Would love to try this recipe soon!
Wow it would really be awesome to make a homemade ice cream! Can’t wait to try it out too 🙂 My kids will be very happy!
Nice DIY project at home! May I borrow your recipe? I’d love to make this for my son this summer vacation. Thanks!
Of course of course. Tag me to your photos ha. 🙂 Wanna see esp if you experimented with other flavors. 🙂
It’s that easy to make ice cream?!!! Hehe! Ugh, but I need to cut back on sweets already as I need to get back in shape.
For cheat days, mommy. 🙂
Your food posts are my favorite because they’re always so easy to make. Thanks for sharing this, will make it for my daughter soon. 🙂
Bookmarking this! I love vanilla ice cream!
In fairness, it really looks creamy! Thanks for sharing this! And I’m glad using a blender worked well for you because I don’t have a handheld whisk myself.
I tried making ice cream at home but it didn’t turn out well. I’ll try again with the recipe you posted =)
Aha! Thanks for sharing this, May. You know how I love making things from scratch at home, too. I’m definitely trying this soon.
Bookmarked! Thanks for this easy recipe for vanilla ice cream. Will top with marshmallows, sprinkles and chocolate syrup!
I have never tried making my own ice cream. Your recipe sounds simple enough!
Looks like a yummy recipe I can do with the kids 🙂

This is perfect for summer. I loved it and so as the kids. This is a repeat recipe in the house,.
It may not have been part of the plan, but there’s never a wrong time for homemade ice cream! That looks really good!
Wow! That looks absolutely delicious and tasty I would really love to try this recipe!
I love to make ice cream at home and I’ve made vanilla ice cream. It’s so fun to make. I do use condensed milk to sweeten the ice cream that I make.
I’ve never heard of making ice cream using a blender. I didn’t think that would work, but apparently it does. This is much more convenient than having to get an ice cream maker.
Would LOVE to try to make ice cream sometime!
Nnniiiccceeeee…I like the dose of creativity and simplicity in these recipe. Giving it a try won’t hurt my body, I believe. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
So simple, yet so delicious. I’m going to be making this all summer long
Wow, this is my first time learning about this. Thank you! Looks very easy to do and I want to try out as well.
