  • 1 cup Full Fat Milk 1 cup = 250 ml
  • 3/4 cup Milk Powder
  • 1/4 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1.5 cup Fresh Heavy Cream readily available in market
  • 1/4 cup Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Essence


  • Pour the milk in a sauce pan. For ice-cream always use full fat milk. Skimmed milk is not preferable. Add the milk powder to the milk
  • Whisk the milk and milk powder together nicely so that there are no lumps left behind. Keep the sauce pan in flame and in medium flame bring the milk to boil. Remove the milk from flame and allow it to cool off completely
  • I have kept a stainless steel vessel and whisk in freezer for about half an hour before starting up the ice-cream process. This cold steel vessel and cold whisk helps to beat the fresh cream easily. Meanwhile, pour the cream in a stainless steel mixing bowl and add powdered sugar to it
  • Beat the cream using the cold whisk till you get soft peaks formed in the cream as shown in the picture. Now our whipped cream is ready. Check the milk to see if it has cooled off completely. Once the milk is in room temperature, add vanilla essence and condensed milk and mix well
  • Add the milk+vannila mixture to the whipped cream and gently fold it till the cream and the milk is completely combined. Pour the ice-cream mixture in an air-tight container and freeze it in the freezer for 4-6 hours. Overnight is preferable.
  • Once the ice-cream is set in the freezer, take out and keep for 2 minutes and then using a scooper we can take the creamy vanilla icecream and serve it
  • Serve the homemade creamy Vanilla Ice-Cream with your favourite topping and enjoy the wonderful ice-cream!
