Homemade Ice Cream - Super EASY!

Did you know that you can make ice cream at home?
Without an ice cream maker?
And its realllllly good?
And it only takes a couple ingredients??????????
Well now you do!!
I heard about this through the eagle brand condensed milk website and thought that maybe its wouldn't be THAT good...but hey...I like to try new things!!
 Take 2 Cups of heavy whipping cream and whip it up in your mixer
 You want it to be pretty whipped...but DON"T OVER WHIP! you will turn the cream to butter if you over whip...that will be another post!
 In a large bowl pour 1 can of condensed Milk and any other flavours you want to add. I was in a chocolate mood so I added Cocoa Powder (1 Tbsp), 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract, a Huge Handful of chocolate covered almonds and a handful of pecans and walnuts.
 I also had a jar of Chocolate/Caramel Sauce and poured that in too. Mix this all together to combine.
 Now slowly fold in your whipped cream. You want it JUST combined.
 Pour your ice cream mixture into a loaf pan...cover in plastic wrap and freeze! DONE! and so easy!
 I also made a key lime flavour! Juiced about 8 key limes and the zest of 1 into the condensed milk
 Then when I poured it into the loaf pan I stopped half way and sprinkled graham cracker crumbs over...
 Then topped it up with the rest of the ice cream and more crumbs! It tasted EXACTLY like key lime pie! You need about 4 hours of freezing time before you can indulge!
Super creamy and easy to make!! I suggest you make some tonight!
