Sweetened Condensed Milk Ice Cream

Easiest ice cream ever. 

Super creamy and delicious – a close tie with our all-time favorite vanilla ice cream.  However, this one offers less cals/bowl because it relies on half and half or whole (hey, even 2% milk works too) milk rather than heavy whipping cream.  

Sweetened Condensed Milk Ice Cream


  • 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk {or, make your own!}
  • 4 C whole milk or half and half
  • 1 tsp. vanilla


Place all the ingredients together in a large bowl or measuring cup; stir until well blended. 

Carefully, pour the ice cream mixture into the assembled ice cream maker.  Allow the ice cream maker to make the ice cream for ~20 minutes.

Serve at soft serve consistency, if desired.  Otherwise, freeze the ice cream in freezer-safe containers for 2 hours before ice cream reaches hard-scoop consistency. 



  1. Are you kidding me?? That's IT?!?! That is far too simple and easy. Now I can have homemade ice cream at mere moments notice! HOOROY!! I think I'll surprise the kiddo today & make this :) FUN!

  2. What an easy recipe to put together! I'll have to try it next time I make ice cream. :)

  3. Your ice cream sounds delicious! I really want an ice cream maker!

  4. Thank you for the recipe. We enjoy our ice cream and ice cream maker twice a month. Thank you for sweetening our lives.

  5. This looks simple enough..I just need a attachment to my kitchen I can make ice day soon..look so yummy...Happy Saturday...hugs

  6. We made this yesterday for our daughters birthday! We found an ice cream maker at a yard sale for 5.00, but never used it till I saw this recipe. It was perfect, thank you for sharing it! Ill be trying your other recipes too :0) and Ill link to your recipe when I blog about the birthday details.

  7. I made this recipe last night (switching a combination of 2% milk and milk made with powdered milk for the whole milk/half & half in your recipe. It was WONDERFUL! My mother-in-law makes sweetened condensed milk (she swears by Eaglebrand although I use a generic from Aldi and its perfectly fine) so I knew your recipe wouldbe yummy.

    I posted how I made your recipe on my blog at-

    Thanks for the wonderful recipes and inspiration you always share with us!

    1. I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed the recipe. We've also made it with 50% as much 1/2 and 1/2 and used milk for the rest. We typically use the Target brand SCM. Enjoy!

  8. I just found this on Pinterest-I remembered making an ice cream with condensed milk as a girl with mother and remembered that it tasted great. My memories were correct. I made this with a Kitchen Aid ice cream attachment. It turned out great (took about 20 minutes to reach soft serve). My husband is a Blue Bell ice cream snob (A big hey ya'll to fellow Texans) and is unimpressed with homemade ice cream, but he really loved this. It stayed fairly smooth when frozen solid. Thanks for this great recipe!

  9. So easy and good! Used 2% lactaid (all I had) very soft after 20 minutes but we couldn't wait. Will make ahead and freeze few hours next time. Found it very sweet, will try 1/2 can SCM next time and freezing for next batch of ice cream. Thanks for posting!

  10. can we use the blender instead of the ice cream maker ? I can't seem to find one :'3 I want to make this reciepe as fast as possible

  11. My 2¢ I change a cpl things on the recipe. I only had 1% milk and I added a small box of chocolate pudding. I mixed everything together real good before putting in my Kitchen Aid ice cream maker. After 25 minutes still very soft but very tasty. Can't wait to: try with other flavors of pudding.


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
