Fat-Free Homemade soft serve ice cream

Fat-Free Homemade soft serve ice cream

CJ loves ice cream, loves it so much that she prays God for ice cream dreams daily.

This soft serve ice cream is simple to make and healthy with fat-free ingredients! Quality tested and approved by CJ and her dad:-)

I was inspired by soft serve ice cream post on come together kids and Homemade ice cream on Helping little hands. With few twists here and there to the recipe and ingredients.. Here comes my own version of soft serve ice cream!


Fat free Half and Half - 1 pint (473 ml)
Fat free Sweetened condensed milk - 1 can(14 oz)
Vanilla extract - 1 tsp (can be substituted with strawberry or your favorite)

All you need is an Electric hand mixer


With an electric hand mixer, whip the half and half until the milk is frothy/foamy.

I did the Whipping for about 5 mins. Add the sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract and mix thoroughly. Whip the mix until frothy again. The mix is little watery but no worries it comes out good when frozen. (I whipped for about 10 mins).

Freeze for at least 4 hours. I left it overnight and was pretty hard in the morning. My mom suggested to beat again with the beater. So I left the container at room temperature for 5 mins and whipped until soft(Here you can also use a blender).

If it becomes watery, freeze again for half-an-hour and enjoy your homemade soft serve on wafer ice cream cones!

It tastes yummy, feels creamy and looks so dreamy! Fat free ingredients make you eat guilt free!

Note: 1 pint half and half, 1 can of condensed milk makes approx. 20 scoops of ice cream
