  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste or the caviar from 2 vanilla beans or 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • ¼ to ½ teaspoon sea salt optional

Garnish (optional)

  • caramel sauce, hot fudge, chopped nuts, sprinkles, etc.


  • In a large, cold mixing bowl, whisk the heavy cream (and salt if using) with a stand mixer or hand mixer until stiff peaks form. This should only take about 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Next, fold in the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla bean paste (or vanilla extract) until you have a smooth consistency and the ingredients are fully incorporated.
  • Pour the mixture into an ice cream container like this one or this one, or a loaf pan, and cover it tightly with plastic wrap. 
  • Chill for at least 6 hours and preferably overnight. Serve with toppings of your choosing.
