  1. 2 cups cold heavy whipping cream
  2. 2 (14-ounce) cans sweetened condensed milk
  3. 1 quart cold half-and-half
  4. 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise and seeds scraped and reserved
  5. 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  1. In the work bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat cream at medium-high speed until stiff peaks form. Add condensed milk, and beat for 2 to 3 minutes or until stiff peaks form again. Stir in half-and-half, vanilla bean seeds, and extract.
  2. Pour mixture into the container of an electric ice cream maker, and freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions. If a firmer texture is desired, spoon ice cream into a freezer-safe container, and freeze for at least 4 hours or for up to 1 month.
