Dulce de Leche 2 Ingredient Ice Cream

As much as I love chocolate, I love caramel and dulce de leche flavors more. This recipe has only 2 ingredients, takes just minutes to prep, and it’s NO CHURN! The combination of the air from the whipped cream and the rich, intense flavors of dulce de leche (basically caramelized sweetened condense milk) produces the same creamy texture of homemade, churned ice cream.

Larger grocery stores and Latin markets sell La Lechera brand canned dulce de leche so you don’t have to make your own, making this recipe even easier. I keep this as a staple in my pantry for many recipes. For a quick and easy dulce de leche sauce for desserts, thin it down with whipping cream or half and half until desire consistency….that’s it! pour over vanilla ice cream or plain cheesecake. Yum!
