It’s the best summer dessert: ice cream! Don’t have an ice cream machine, but want to decide for yourself what’s in it? That’s how you get it.
Paula likes it fruity – preferably with berries and sauce. Ole wants chocolate caramel. And Piet – he only eats his ice cream when there is tuna in it. No problem – the three friends can vary this basic recipe.
The ice cream is great for a garden party. You may also need these instructions for this:
The most popular ice cream in Germany is vanilla ice cream. For creamy vanilla ice cream, you usually need to take the ice cream out of the freezer quite often and stir it. Otherwise it will be too tight. Or you may need ice cream to do the job.
But with this recipe, you move only once. That’s why you can easily freeze a lot of small, different portions. The secret ingredient for magically soft ice cream: sweetened condensed milk!
You only need three ingredients
Cream, vanilla (sugar) and sweetened condensed milk are the magic ingredients for creamy vanilla ice cream. Photo: Ina Reinhart
500 ml cream
400 ml sweetened condensed milk
The pulp of vanilla bean – or just a little vanilla sugar
We still had the sweet condensed milk in the basement. We wanted to bake a cake with it. But we never did. The best before date has already passed. But in the end it says Minimumbest before date. And if the condensed milk still looks good, smells good and doesn’t taste sour, you can still use it.
This is how vanilla ice cream is made from the three ingredients
First the cream is whipped. By the way, we’ll chop Ole’s chocolate caramels.

In a bowl, mix the condensed milk with the vanilla. Then we put the cream in a whisk.

A third of the ice mass goes straight into a freezer. This is the simple vanilla ice cream for Paula.
Another third goes into an extra bowl. Then Piet moves his fish. (We’d rather not show that here, because the sight makes Ole sick.)
Paula moves the chopped chocolate caramels into Ole’s portion.

Five hours in the freezer
Each ice cream goes into its own freezer and then into the freezer. He has to stay there for five hours.
