Ingredients and Substitutions

  • Heavy Cream  – This is also labeled as Heavy Whipping Cream. It whips the best when it is really cold, so keep chilled until ready to use.
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk – Sold in 14 ounce cans, this is a sweet, syrupy milk. It is not the same as evaporated milk. It sweetens and adds a luxurious consistency.
  • Cinnamon – Use a good quality cinnamon for the best flavor.

Tips

  • Place your mixing bowl in the refrigerator for a few minutes before whipping the cream. A cold bowl helps the cream whip faster.
  • Pull your cream out of the fridge right before you use it. It won’t whip up quickly if it is warm.
  • Your freezer’s coldest area is probably in the back. Store your ice cream there for a quicker freeze and to store.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does this process work to make ice cream?

We’re still using basically the same ingredients as churned ice cream. Our cream just gets whipped beforehand, whereas in an ice cream maker the cream is mixed continuously during the whole process.
We also use sugar, but in a concentrated sugar form without much water. This keeps the ice cream smooth and soft.

What does no churn, no cook ice cream mean?

No churning means that you don’t need to use an ice cream maker. An ice cream maker has a paddle/dasher that churns (mixes) the cream as it freezes. A no churn recipe is nice because you don’t have to find room in your kitchen for another appliance.
Some ice cream recipes require you to cook some ingredients (milk, cream, egg, sugar) to make a custard before it is frozen. That can be good, but I’m all about using less steps.

How to Store

If you didn’t finish off the ice cream, cover it with a lid or plastic wrap. Place in the coldest part of your freezer for up to 2 months.

If it starts getting ice crystals or the texture has changed, then it isn’t fresh anymore. You can always mix it in a shake. And then mix up a new batch to enjoy fresh.
