Ice Cream. Ice Cream. And? More Ice Cream. Homemade. All sorts of kinds!

I just posted this one not long ago.
We are running it again today.
Because where I live, it's been right around 100 degrees every single day for the last month.  That's why!  And I just now came inside from the backyard and decided a bowl of ice cold, creamy ice cream sounded lovely.
Might as well 'share' with everyone - and since this is the internet, this is the only way to do it.

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!

Vanilla:  Add 1-2 t vanilla extract
Chocolate:  1/2 c chocolate syrup, 1-2 squares melted Baker's chocolate
Caramel:  1/2 c Caramel syrup
Cherry Nut:  1 t almond extract, fresh chopped cherries, chopped walnuts or pecans
Chocolate Mocha Nut:  1/2 c chocolate syrup, 1 melted square Bakers unsweetened chocolate, 1/4 c strong coffee, 1/3 c toasted chopped almonds
Cookies and Cream:  1 c crushed or chopped Oreos, 1 t vanilla extract
Lemon:  1 t lemon extract
Try:  Marshmallow creme, mini chocolate chips, candies, crushed cookies, nuts, butterscotch, strawberries, raspberries, maple extract, mint extract with mini chocolate chips, 1/3 c dry cake mix with colored sprinkles, espresso, melted caramel with a sprinkle of sea salt, bits of chopped brownies or cake, spoonfuls of cheesecake, bits of apple pie filling and a sprinkle of cinnamon, chopped candy bars... the options are endless!!!!

Whip the cold heavy cream
Whip just until it thickens are forms stiff peaks
Add 1 can sweetened condensed milk (in the baking aisle)
For chocolate mocha I added 1 melted square unsweetened Baker's chocolate with 1/4 c espresso and 1/2 c chocolate syrup
Toasted some salted almonds... Mmmm
Fold everything together til smooth
Place in freeze safe container (I used Rubbermaid style with lid)
Freeze overnight and you get perfectly creamy, delicious ice cream!
