INGREDIENTS

The wonderful thing about no churn ice creams is they don’t require many ingredients and you probably have them on hand already!

HEAVY WHIPPING CREAM: It needs to be 36%-40% butterfat. This will make sure it doubles in size and holds its shape when whipped. Also, cold cream whips up faster and taller.
SWEETENED CONDENSED MILK: NOT evaporated milk.
VANILLA, CINNAMON, AND SALT: All add flavor to the ice cream, yes even salt!

HOW TO

FIRST: Whip the heavy whipping cream with the vanilla, cinnamon, and salt until stiff peaks form.
SECOND: Fold in the sweetened condensed milk until combined. Be careful not to overmix.
THIRD: Place in a freezer safe container. Press plastic wrap against the surface of the ice cream and freeze for 4-6 hours.

TIPS

Be sure to use a good quality vanilla and cinnamon since they are the stars of this ice cream! Check the expiration date as well, fresh cinnamon gives a stronger flavor. You can also briefly heat the cinnamon to release the oils and really boost the cinnamon flavor. My family likes it when I use 1 1/2 tablespoons of cinnamon. It’s enough that you can taste the cinnamon but it’s not SUPER strong. So if you really like cinnamon use the 3 tablespoons.

Please don’t skip pressing the plastic wrap against the surface of the ice cream before freezing. This step is important because it helps prevent ice crystals from forming on the ice cream.
