This no-churn ice cream recipe has all the richness of traditional recipes, but our version takes only 10 minutes of hands-on work.


  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk

  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

  • 2 tablespoons bourbon (optional)

  • 2 cups cold heavy cream


  1. In a medium bowl, stir together condensed milk, vanilla, and bourbon, if desired. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat cream on high until stiff peaks form, 3 minutes.

  2. With a rubber spatula, gently fold whipped cream into condensed milk mixture. Pour into a 4 1/2-by-8 1/2-inch loaf pan. Freeze until firm, 6 hours.
