  • 1 can(s) (14-ounce) fat-free sweetened condensed milk
  • 3/4 cup(s) low-fat (1 %) milk
  • 1 tablespoon(s) vanilla extract
  • 2 cup(s) heavy or whipping cream

Directions:

  1. In large bowl, with wire whisk, mix condensed milk, low-fat milk, and vanilla until blended.
  2. In another large bowl, with mixer at medium speed, beat cream until stiff peaks form. With rubber spatula, fold whipped cream into milk mixture until blended. Spoon mixture into 9-inch by 9-inch metal baking pan or glass baking dish or 2 1/2-quart metal or glass bowl; cover with foil and freeze 2 hours.
  3. After 2 hours, stir partially frozen ice-cream mixture to evenly distribute frozen edges with not-yet-frozen center. Cover and return pan to freezer until ice cream is firm, about 3 hours longer or overnight.
  4. To serve, let ice cream stand at room temperature 10 to 15 minutes for easier scooping.
