Cooks tips

Using Carnation Condensed Milk to make ice cream means that you don’t need to stir the mixture every hour over a four hour period. The reason you would stir is to make the small ice crystals for a really smooth finish, however, the condensed milk will do this for you. What a time saving!

You can use any berries for this – try blackcurrants, blueberries or raspberries.  Adjust the sugar with the fruit according to taste.  Or just make a plain base ice cream with the cream, condensed and vanilla and swirl through Carnation Caramel or chocolate sauce.
