Easy Recipes: No Churn Creamy Vanilla Ice Cream

vanilla-ice-cream2So 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.

Not planned

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.

5. Serve.

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?


  1. 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.

    1. 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.:)

    1. 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.

  2. 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.

    1. 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.

  3. 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. 🙂

  4. 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!

  5. 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.

  6. It looks so tempting and nothing can be great than homemade with love. My hands are itching to make one now.

  7. 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!

  8. 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? 🙂

    1. 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. 🙂

    1. Of course of course. Tag me to your photos ha. 🙂 Wanna see esp if you experimented with other flavors. 🙂

  9. 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.

  10. I tried making ice cream at home but it didn’t turn out well. I’ll try again with the recipe you posted =)

  11. I’d love to make one also mommy. Ang daling gawin and simple lang yung ingredients. Favorite ng kids namin ng ice cream kaya matutuwa sila kapag gumawa ako nito for sure ?

  12. Thanks for sharing mommy May.ILL COpy this recipe and I’ll make ice cream too for my kids

  13. Gusto ko rin ito ma try mommy thanks for the tips?
    Balikan ko etong blog mommy pag gagawa na po ako☺️

  14. 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.
