Summer lasts well in to October in Southern California.  But I do have to say that there has been a slight change in the weather lately that hints that fall is coming.  The evenings are getting shorter and are definitely a lot cooler than usual.

So we are celebrate the last few precious evenings of summer and are planning our Labor Day weekend with the theme "The Bounty of Summer"!.  This will include a backyard BBQ, some spectacular pasta salads, easy in-season vegetable side dishes and for dessert a no churn ice cream.

This is the first time I've ventured into the "no churn" ice cream realm.  Being a lover of old fashioned goodness I was hesitant to try this.  Boy was I pleasantly surprised and wish I had joined the fun ages ago!  I decided to go with a basic vanilla recipe that could be used for a base in an ice cream bar that I'll be setting up.  We'll have a variety of different fruits, chocolate, nuts, and candy to top your sundae to your hearts desire.

Is it really no churn?  Yes, you actually can make ice cream without churning it!  As amazing as it sounds it's true, and it tastes just as amazing!  It only takes 3 ingredients to make this wonderful ice cream:  whipping cream, sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla.  I actually used a vanilla bean pastes which infused the ice cream with flavorful flecks of vanilla bean seeds.  I just love the looks of vanilla flecks running through my ice cream!  You can purchase this here.  Of course, you can always use pure vanilla extract.  Since you are only using 3 ingredients make sure to use ones that are top quality so your ice cream comes out top notch!

Does it taste like ice cream?  It actually does!  I was skeptical since I've made homemade churned iced cream all my life and I'm partial to it.  But after trying this I found that this is a great quick and easy substitute.  Lots of ice cream uses eggs that you cook into a custard base, but there are those that are just cream, half and half, and sugar.  The ingredients are similar in the no churn version and the fact that you whip the cream you are creating that air infused base which simulates churned ice cream.

What tools do I need? To make this ice cream you will need a stand or hand mixer such as this one, or this one.  You will need a rubber spatula such as this one.  Good vanilla bean paste.  Plus a freezer safe container to hold your ice cream.  I'm partial to this one because it's easy to scoop from!
