…so abundant in the Osweiler house,  the scene was ripe (hehe!) for creating a delicious and yet simple no-churn vanilla ice cream to accompany the fruit.

The task actually fell to my oldest daughter, Bre, who happens to be a connoisseur of vanilla ice cream in general.  She also follows her Grandpa Raymond’s example and makes a kickin’ apple pie.  Pretty impressive for a lass of merely eleven!

So simple, and yet authentically rich and creamy, there is no reason to not have the kids make their favorite home-made ice cream flavors.

Quite literally, this recipe is 4 ingredients:

No-Churn Vanilla Bean Ice Cream

1 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk

2 cups heavy whipping cream

Seeds from 1 vanilla bean pod

3 tsp of vanilla extract

Combine the cream, seeds and extract; with an electric mixer, whip on high until stiff peaks form.  Fold in sweetened condensed milk.  Pour in a container and freeze for a minimum of four hours.

Viola!  Serve with baked apples or baked pears…

Or, of course, just enjoy it all by its sweet, indulgent self.
