Here is the recipe for rich and creamy and smooth and silky homemade custard ice cream with tutti frutti, oh yes without ice-cream maker. It uses both heavy cream and regular milk which adds to the creamy texture. This is a single churn ice-cream.


It feels like just yesterday I wrote this post about Vaandu’s struggle to adapt to new school. Time flies. We completed our first grade successfully and all set for grade 2. 🙂        Vaandu loves ice-creams in cone. So I always have store-bought cones. Here is my home made custard ice-cream served in cones for my little dude. For this recipe, I used both heavy cream, regular 2% milk and also a bit of condensed milk. I love the subtle creamy color from the vanilla custard powder.One churn was more than enough for the smooth and rice ice-cream.  The heavy cream and regular milk did the trick. 🙂



  • Heavy Cream – 1 cup
  • Regular 2% milk – 3/4 cup + 1/4 cup
  • Condensed Milk – 2 tbsps
  • Sugar – 1/4 cup
  • Custard Powder (I used Vanilla Flavor) – 3 tbsps
  • Tutti Frutti – 3 to 4 tbsps


  • Heat the 1/4 cup of milk either in microwave or in stove top until its luke warm.
  • To this 1/4 cup of luke warm milk, add the 3 tbsps of custard powder and mix well without any lumps.


  • In a heavy bottom vessel or pan, boil the heavy cream and regular milk.
  • As they start to form the bubbles(it doesn’t need to boil), add the sugar and condensed milk.
  • Turn the heat to low and add the custard powder milk mix.
  • Make sure all the ingredients are incorporated well and turn off the heat.


  • Let it cool and then freeze it. I let it freeze for over night about 8 to 9 hours.
  • Remove this from the freezer and let it sit for about 15 minutes.


  • Blend this in a mixer-jar in parts and you can see the creamy texture in the first churn itself.
  • After blending all, add the tutti frutti and mix well and freeze again.


That’s it. Home made custard ice-cream is ready.

Make sure the ice-cream is out of the freezer at least 10 minutes before serving. Add more tutti-frutti and serve in a cup or cone.



  • Instead of heavy cream, you can add whole milk and regular milk or try either with whole milk or 2% toned milk.
  • Adjust the sugar and condensed milk according to your preference.
  • I used vanilla flavored custard powder and you can use any flavor you prefer.
  • Instead of tutti-frutti, chocolate chips can be added.
  • The milk doesn’t need to come to full boil. Keep stirring while boiling the milk.
  • If you feel single churn is not creamy enough, churn one more time.
