Amazing No-Churn Ice Cream: 6 Flavors

Do you like magic tricks?

Oh, you do? Me, too!

What I have to show you today is part recipe, part magic trick. Just two ingredients make the most creamy, melt-in-your-mouth ice cream you’ve ever tasted. And it’s perfect for people who like to limit their kitchen gadgets (like me) because you don’t. need. an ice cream maker.

Rejoice!

I made my first flavor – a sinfully good Cinnamon Bun Ice Cream – and quickly became addicted. As if ice cream wasn’t already a serious problem during this pregnancy! You could say I went a little overboard with six flavors, sure… But, did Noah go overboard stuffing his ark full of strange animals?

I rest my case.

So, you wanna make your own 2-ingredient, no-churn ice cream? Let me show you the way…

All you need is love. Wait, no. You need heavy cream, sweetened condensed milk, and your favorite mix-ins. Plus, yes, a love of ice cream. That’s it!

Whip your cream into a big heap of gorgeous white fluff. Meanwhile, mix your sweetened condensed milk with whatever good stuff you like. Crushed cookies, fresh fruit, cocoa powder, toffee bits, marshmallows – get creative!

My personal favorite? A combo of yellow cake mix, butter and sprinkles for Cake Batter Funfetti Ice Cream.

Have mercy!

Just combine your fluffy whipped cream and condensed milk mixture in a big bowl, mix ‘em up and pour into a container. Done and done!

In 6 hours (I know, seems like an eternity, but you can do it) you’ll have the most velvety smooth, rich and delicious ice cream imaginable. A fabulous no-churn, egg-free and fuss-free frozen treat!

You’re just gonna flip over all the delicious ice cream flavors you can create! I’ve outlined a few knockout favorites below from my experimenting (and extensive sampling). But feel free to get creative with your mix-ins.

The two ingredients truly make one of the best ice creams I’ve ever tasted, and I know I’ll be trying new flavors all summer long. Grab your ingredients and give it a whirl, too!

    Genius, Georgia! I’ve tried the Cook’s Illustrated chocolate and vanilla no-churn recipes and they are delicious, but these flavors sound even better! I can’t wait to try the cake batter one.

    I think I just saw the light! This sounds and looks heavenly, mmmm!

    Finally after eight months without a freezer, I’m moving in to a new flat next week that has one! (one of the first things I checked on the viewing..hah!). Now, all I need is a proper hand mixer and I’ll be good to go!

    Thank you so much for all these scrumptious ideas Georgia! Also, would you be able to maaaaaaybe make a pistachio one? I remember when I moved to Scotland from Norway, the disappointment when I ordered “green” icecream and it tasted of mint (don’t get me wrong, it’s delicious, I just felt…..deceived…by the world!).

    PS your baby must be smiling with all these delicious things you whip up! :D x

    • Georgia — April 25th, 2014 @ 8:39 am

      Thanks for your kind comment, Jules! Yes, you can definitely make a pistachio variation of this ice cream. Hope you enjoy!

    I love all the different varieties you have here, starting with just two simple ingredients. And although I have an ice cream maker, sometimes i just wanna keep things a little simpler. Your recipe will definitely come in handy — magic trick indeed!

    Stacy | Wicked Good Kitchen — April 25, 2014 @ 4:35 pm

    Have mercy, indeed! Georgia, this recipe is a very dangerous one! Love the 2-ingredient idea using sweetened condensed milk to replace a cooked custard for most homemade ice cream recipes. It is so versatile, too! Love all the variations, too. Just imagine cooking down the sweetened condensed milk a bit to caramelize, like dulce de leche, and adding a little salt for a Salted Caramel Ice Cream variation! Heaven help us, now! ;) Thanks for sharing, my friend. Will pin to several group boards. Busy mom’s will love this one!

    It’s like you knew that ice cream was my weakness! While I do have an ice cream maker I’m interested to try this super easy way of making it. I don’t know how I’ll ever choose which flavor to make, I think you covered all my favorites. Guess I’ll just have to make all 6 of them!

    This is jaw dropping amazing and very vey very dangerous. The only thing that is saving me is I don’t normally have whipping cream on hand. OMG!!!!!!!!!!!
    I am a serious ice cream eater, so I don’t normally have it in the house. OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am in big big trouble here.

    Betty — April 25, 2014 @ 11:12 pm

    This looks dangerously easy and delicious. I do love ice cream and the thing that stops me from making it every day and gaining a million pounds is that it’s a bit of an effort to drag out the machine from where I’ve tucked it away. I guess I’ll just have to rely on the old will power now, because these flavors are mighty tempting! The Bourbon Salted Caramel is definitely happening. :)

    BJ — April 28, 2014 @ 10:45 pm

    Georgia: Loved this idea, I made the strawberry cheesecake flavor today, but yesterday, I hope you don’t mind but I made up my own flavor using your base recipe. We like Banana pudding flavor, so I used your base recipe of whipping cream and sweetened, condensed milk, added 3 tbsp of instant banana cream pudding mix, 1 cup of diced bananas and 1 cup of roughly crushed vanilla wafers. It was awesome! The whole family loved it. Thanks for this idea.

    Hi, I love trying out your recipes and so does my family. What kind of Vitamix do you have?

    • Georgia — April 30th, 2014 @ 9:17 am

      I used a KitchenAid stand mixer to whip the cream, not a Vitamix. But you can also use a food processor or electric hand mixer.

    I just made the chocolate version but without nuts (one of my sons only like pistachios but I didn’t have any on hand). I could have eaten it before freezing it is soooooo good! I can’t wait until we can have some at 8 pm tonight! I was actually thinks about asking for a ice cream make for Mothers Day but we don’t any any space to store it. This is perfect! Thanks so much for the Mothers Day gift!

    • Georgia — May 17th, 2014 @ 8:56 am

      Hi Ela – You can add a little powdered sugar if you’d like, but there’s no need since the sweetened condensed milk is already very sweet.

    Can I use evaporated milk instead of sweetened condensed?

    • Georgia — July 9th, 2014 @ 2:04 pm

      No, sorry, I wouldn’t recommend evaporated milk or any other substitutions for the condensed milk.

  55. #
    55
    Kati — July 18, 2014 @ 5:13 pm

    If Evaporated Milk doesn’t work because if the consistency, do you have any ideas on reducing the sweetness level? The Condensed Milk is sooooo sweet, and while I love ice cream it’s just too sweet for me. I was trying to figure out how to thicken evaporated milk and cut some of the condensed milk out, but haven’t had any luck. Any ideas would be great! Thanks in advanced!

    • Georgia — July 19th, 2014 @ 8:10 am

      Sorry, I don’t have any recommendations for ingredient substitutions. I’ve only ever made this ice cream as written.

    I want to make it with marshmallow fluff, have you tried that? what would you recommend? i have a jar of the fluff at home and need a way to get rid of it. thought a marshmallow ice cream may be delish!

    • Georgia — August 7th, 2014 @ 12:48 pm

      I would start by just incorporating a little marshmallow fluff at a time into the base (heavy cream + condensed milk). You could even add chocolate and graham cracker pieces to make a s’mores ice cream. Hope that helps!

    This might be a dumb question, but what can I do with the remaining cake mix after I use one cup for the cake batter ice cream?

    • Georgia — September 23rd, 2014 @ 9:16 am

      I’ve mixed leftover cake mix with softened butter as a crumbly topping for fruit cobblers before. Apart from that, I’m not sure.

    Hi Georgia, I can’t wait to try this recipe. Do you think it’s possible to reduce the amount of condensed milk, as I wanted it to be less sweet?
    Thank you.

    • Georgia — November 17th, 2014 @ 7:31 am

      It doesn’t taste overly sweet, but I think decreasing the condensed milk a little would be fine.
