I have just rediscovered making ice cream with condensed milk (cream + condensed milk whipped up and frozen) and I'm wondering what different flavours you've tried?

I just made coffee ice cream from Nigella's cookbook, would love to try other flavour combinations.

This one is really nice (and simple)!

ETA: Just realised there wasn't condensed milk in that recipe... I was sure there was.  Oh well, I've made it a couple of times and it's still yummy!

Substitute condensed milk with caramel top-n-fill for the most luscious caramel ice cream you've ever had.

I buy chocolate bars and crush then up and mix through. Have done peppermint bars and crunchies. Yum!

Tinned passionfruit in syrup is brilliant.

Frozen raspberries (with a little sugar if they are very sour)

Mint essence and dark chocolate chopped (or mint chocolate chopped)

And I have seen (but not tried) it done with a chai syrup

Banana and Nutella
Apple and cinnamon (I used apple puree)
Honeycomb (chopped up Crunchie or Violet Crumble)

Also recently tried banana & toffee sauce/topping and little drizzles of melted dark chocolate. Yummy!

Do you need an ice cream churn for this or is it just frozen in a container?

No, you don't need to churn it, you just whip it till it's increased a lot in volume, then freeze!

It is not exactly the same texture as normal ice cream, a bit different - very creamy and smooth. It is great if you don't have an ice cream maker.

*drumroll*

Raisins (and goji berries) soaked in a glass sealed container with rum and a couple of cinnamon sticks.

Drain the berries after 3 days or so (keep spiced rum and serve with lime and soda) and stir through ice cream, add a few teaspoons of the rum to the cream while you are whipping it too.

Oh. My. Goodness.

I don't know if I would call this stuff icecream. I heard so many raves about this but I didn't like it at all. Very light texture

I've just discovered this method after watching nigella. So far I've done (similar to countrymel), rum & sultanas (didnt have any raisins) and another batch of baileys and berry ripple.
For the rum & raisin, I soaked 1/2 cup sultanas in 2tbspn rum overnight. Then added 2 tbspn cocoa to the base mix, and folded through the soaked sultanas and the rum.
For the berry ripple I added 2 tbspn baileys to the base mix, then made a berry sauce (1 cup froz mixed berries with 1 tbspn caster sugar, simmered till slightly syrupy), which I folded through to give the ripple.
There are some awesome ideas here, so I suspect that I'll be making more flavours!

Oh, and I found out the first time I made this you can over whip the mix, which of course being cream means it split. Think buttery ice cream. We still ate it, but texture was very wrong.

I never knew you could do it this way, guess what I will be making on the weekend!

It's definitely quite different from store-bought ice cream. I seem to go through stages where I'll make this a lot and then I get sick of it and don't have any for ages.

I usually don't use anywhere near the suggested amount of condensed milk as I find it way too sweet, so I get a creamier texture that way.
