Here’s the recipe for homemade ice cream with just three ingredients: whipped cream, condensed milk, and strawberries. It’s simple, delicious, and sure to surprise everyone with its amazing taste.


  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 vanilla bean (or 1 tablespoon vanilla extract)
  • Ice cubes
  • 1/2 cup salt (rock salt or kosher salt works well)


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the heavy cream, whole milk, sugar, and salt. If using a vanilla bean, split it lengthwise with a knife and scrape out the seeds. Add both the seeds and the pod to the saucepan. If using vanilla extract, wait to add it later.
  2. Heat the mixture over medium heat, stirring frequently until it reaches a temperature just below boiling (about 170°F or 77°C). Do not let it boil.
  3. Once heated, remove the saucepan from the heat and let it cool slightly. If using vanilla extract, stir it in now.
  4. Pour the mixture into a shallow, freezer-safe container or a metal loaf pan. Cover the container with plastic wrap, pressing it directly onto the surface of the mixture to prevent a skin from forming.
  5. Place the container in the freezer for about 2 hours, or until the edges begin to freeze.
  6. Take the container out of the freezer and use a handheld mixer or whisk to beat the partially frozen mixture until smooth. This step helps incorporate air into the ice cream, resulting in a creamier texture.
  7. Return the container to the freezer and let the ice cream freeze for another 2 hours, or until firm. Repeat the mixing process one more time after 2 hours if desired for a smoother texture.
  8. While the ice cream is freezing, prepare an ice bath by filling a large bowl with ice cubes and adding the salt.
  9. Once the ice cream is firm, serve and enjoy your delicious homemade treat!

Note: You can customize this basic recipe by adding mix-ins like chocolate chips, crushed cookies, or fruit purees during the mixing process. Just fold them into the partially frozen mixture before returning it to the freezer.
