The World's Easiest Homemade Ice Cream Recipe

This recipe is an old family favorite.  As many of my readers know, I was raised in Northeast Brazil.  Since the weather was always warm, ice cream was one of our special desserts.  When I was growing up, good ice cream was expensive and hard to find.  So, we came up with this tasty Ice cream recipe.   It is very creamy and delicious, yet the best part is that that it requires no machine and it only uses three ingredients!

Here are the ingredients:

- 1 cup of vanilla yogurt
- 1 - 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
- 1 cup crushed strawberries


Mix the ingredients together.  Pour into a freezer friendly container.  Cover and freeze at least 4 hours.  Then just scoop and serve!

How easy was that?  You can mix up the flavors by switching out the fruit.  Replace it with chocolate chips, cookie dough or the ingredient of your choice!

    1. Yes, Boni, I have used several different types of yogurt. I'm sure it would be just as good.

  5. Just wondering - i dont use condensed milk...can anything can be used it it's place? Love the recipe though!

    1. Robin, I truly don't know. I can't really think of anything that would already have the creamy consistency without having to use a machine to get it. Sorry, I wasn't much help. :(

  11. Hi Melissa,

    When you say crushed strawberries - should these be frozen or fresh? Do you think I could replace the strawberries with chunks of mango?

    Thanks x

    1. Trisha, in my opinion fresh is always better, but they could also be frozen. By crushed I simply mean small pieces, or squished up strawberries. :). And yes, I think using Mangos would work just fine! You could substitute the strawberries for almost any fruit you'd like. Enjoy!
