Easy Vanilla Gelato

This is the best ice cream we have made so far. This is light and creamy and has the perfect crunch with the toffee bits. The ice cream wasn't overly sweet and was very easy to eat (not sure that is a good thing!) I may try this with the low-fat sweetened condensed milk next time. We loved it and it will be our standard ice cream from now on.


Easy Vanilla Gelato

(Printable Recipe)

2 3/4 cups whole milk
1 14-oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup toffee bits

Whisk all ingredients together in a large bowl until smooth. Refrigerate if mixture is not cold, or until you are ready to make the gelato.

Pour milk mixture into your ice cream maker and prepare according to manfacturers’ instructions (about 20 minutes). Transfer to a freezer-proof airtight container and chill until ready to serve to firm up the texture a bit.

  1. Have you tried it with low fat sweetened condensed milk? It looks delicious!! I am just about to start trying to make ice cream for the first time, and came across your recipe...will definitely give it a try. Do you think the whole milk is a must or can I substitute lower fat milk?
