The Best No-Churn Ice Cream Recipe And 4 Ways To Customize It

One of my favorite cold and creamy treats this summer has been no-churn ice cream. Making homemade ice cream━the kind that involves an ice cream maker━is something I’ve always wanted to try, but I don’t have an ice cream maker or the space to store one in my tiny apartment. Who needs one more counter top appliance to cram into their kitchen cabinets and pantries? The answer is no one because now we’ve got this no-churn ice cream recipe, and it’s just two ingredients.

Yes, two ingredients! All you need to make the creamiest homemade ice cream is a 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk and two cups of whipping cream. That is it! Pour the condensed milk in a large bowl and the whipping in another bowl, or the bowl of a stand mixer with the whisk attachment. Whip the cream on high speed (a handheld electric mixer will work just fine if that’s what you have) until stiff peaks form. Fold the whipped cream into the sweetened condensed milk until all the condensed milk is incorporated. You don’t want to deflate the whipped cream, so it’s important to take the time fold and not stir. Your arm might get a workout, but you also get to eat delicious ice cream.

And that’s how you make no-churn ice cream. Not only is it easy to whip up, it’s also easy to customize. Below you’ll find four variations on this basic no-churn ice cream that’ll have you making no-churn ice cream all summer long!

Drizzle with chocolate syrup. Add another layer of the ice cream base, ladyfingers, and chocolate. Repeat until the loaf pan is full and swirl some chocolate syrup unto the top with a toothpick.
