No Churn Vanilla Bean Ice Cream & Some Fall Finds

This post contains affiliate links. 

Good morning! I hope that you had a great weekend. I had a busy one cleaning closets, and hauling stuff the the thrift store. I also read, relaxed and walked at the beach among other things. It was so hot that I did not bake but I did make the easiest ice cream known to man. Seriously, it has 3 ingredients and you do not even need an ice cream maker, if you have one use it, the ice cream will be a little creamier, if you do not have one it will still be creamy and delicious. 
No Churn Vanilla Bean Ice Cream 


cups heavy whipping cream

Place condensed milk, heavy whipping cream and vanilla bean extract in a blender, blend until well combined. Pour the mixture into a plastic lined loaf pan and cover. Freeze for at least 5 hour or until frozen solid. 

When ready to serve remove from freeze and let thaw for at least 5 minutes, scoop out desired amount into a bowl or a cone and enjoy!

This ice cream is scrumptious alone but you can also use it to make ice cream sandwiches, top with hot fudge, or make a brownie sundae!

Summer is fast coming to an end so I am trying to cross a few more things off of my bucket list. Have you enjoyed the summer that you wanted? Do you have a favorite recipe for ice cream or just a favorite flavor? 

As i have said in the past few weeks I am savoring the present and embracing all that Summer has to offer.  That said I have seen a few  Fall things on one of my favorite online stores, Zulily,  if you are familiar with them then you know the items are only available for a limited time, so I thought I would share a few thins with you before they are gone. 

I like all of the farmhouse signs, but this one is my favorite and I love the bright orange velvet pumpkinshere and here


Have a great day!


  1. I have actually never had no churn ice cream. I haven't had homemade ice cream in at least 20 or so years. Not sure I remember what it tastes like! However sounds like I could do this one.

  2. You always get me with the food photos! Your ice cream is going onto our Color-We've got the blues! Pinterest board now!

  3. Well Elizabeth...I must say I love everything featured in your post....delicious food and gorgeous fall decor....oh that ice cream....simply scrumptious looking!

  4. I have a fondness for cherry cheesecake ice cream, which unfortunately isn't available by container, but only in the odd ice cream parlour here.

  5. I may need to make that ice cream!!!!!!!

  6. I've not made homemade ice cream in years - but may have to try this one!
    Meanwhile I'm cooling off thinking about pumpkins, boots and sweaters - longing for Autumn weather.
