Homemade Chocolate Mocha Almond Ice Cream - NO MACHINE NEEDED - so creamy and delicious!

I recently posted a fun homemade ice cream recipe to make with kids that doesn't involve an ice cream machine or a huge gas station sized bag of ice.  But I've got another homemade ice cream recipe that also does not need ice nor a machine... but it doesn't have the 'wow' factor of the ziploc baggy ice cream project that impresses the little ones.  This one however, will impress pretty much everyone with the creamy taste and texture!

This recipe starts with 2 ingredients and after that?  
You play with it and make it what you want.  
The options are endless.

Homemade Ice Cream
No machine or bags of ice needed!

16 oz. container heavy whipping cream  (2 cups liquid)
1 can sweetened condensed milk  (not evaporated milk)
*optional items for whatever you flavor you like

Whip the heavy cream just to stiff peaks.
Fold in 1 can sweetened condensed milk.
Any flavorings or additions you like.
Place in a freezer safe container.  Freeze overnight.  Serve!
