  • Electric hand beaters or stand mixer
  • Loaf tin or similar


  • 1 x 14 oz (397 gms) tin sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups (500ml) thickened cream
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla essence


  • ½ tablespoon (15gms) glucose syrup


  • Add cream and vanilla to a bowl. Beat until soft peaks form.
  • If using the optional glycose syrup put into a small microwave proof bowl. Add about a third at a time to the cream, mixing between each addition. If it starts to solidify before you have added it all you may need to melt it for another few seconds.
  • Add the condensed milk and gently fold in.
  • Pour the mix into a loaf tin, cover and freeze for four hours or until firm.
  • To serve remove from the freezer, scoop and enjoy! If you have not used the glucose syrup you may need to leave it out of a few minutes to soften before scooping.


This sometimes freezes quite hard.  If its to hard to scoop leave it out of the freezer for 5 mins and make sure you heat up your ice cream scoop.
