The Simplest No Churn Ice Cream Recipe Ingredients
The basis for all of the recipes on this list include the following items:
Heavy Whipping Cream – Also known as heavy cream, it gives the ice cream a creamy texture and body.
Sweetened Condensed Milk – Thicker than milk because all the water is removed. It acts as the sweetener for no churn ice cream.
YES… that’s it! Many of the recipes will also include a little vanilla extract, but it’s totally personal preference. From there, you can see that each recipe is individually unique with delicious additions.
How to Make Ice Cream
Whip – In a mixing bowl, whip heavy cream until stiff peaks form.
Blend – Fold in sweetened condensed milk (and any additions) until just combined. Don’t over beat.
Freeze – Pour into loaf pan. Freeze until solid.
Yes, you can make it homemade and without a machine.
