What is No Churn Ice Cream?

No Churn ice cream is made by combining whipped cream (unsweetened) with sweetened condensed milk.

The sweetened condensed milk keeps the ice cream from freezing super firm, and obviously adds sweetness.

While No Churn Ice Cream isn’t quite the same as traditional custard-based ice cream, it’s a fun summer dessert that won’t take hours out of your day!

It’s also really easy to add in your own sauces, swirls and mix ins to make it your own.

How to make no churn ice cream:

  1. Whip up some cream: you want to incorporate air into this recipe so that your ice cream isn’t a frozen block of creamy! For this reason only heavy whipping cream will work.
  2. Fold in some sweetened condensed milk β€” the sugar keeps the ice cream from freezing completely solid, and obviously adds sweetness.
  3. Add in any mix ins you want! For this recipe we use chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, chopped pecans and chopped Turtle candies.
  4. Freeze! In 4-6 hours you can have soft serve consistency, but I usually let it freeze overnight if possible.

    I have been making this no churn ice cream for a couple of years now and my husband loves it. He also loves a Turtle Sundae. I see this recipe calls for turtle candies. In my country we do not have turtle candy. Are they absolutely necessary or can I replace them with chopped up Toblerone say. Or can I leave them out completely.

  2. Veronica L. says

    I made this and loved it. It was perfect and SO delicious. My husband said it was a little bit too rich. Do you believe that as a complaint? Life should always be so difficult for him. Great recipe. Keep up the good work.


    I made this in summer berrys and it was great. BUT it did not freeze hard like ice cream and the only thing I can think of was I did not beat the Cream long enough? Or is it supposed to be very soft?

    • Ashley Fehr says

      Hi Wanda! Mine does get very hard like ice cream. Do you have it in a deep chest freezer? Different freezers are different temperatures so I’m not sure if that’s why? I know our fridge freezer doesn’t freeze the same as our chest freezer or our upright freezer — the chest is the coldest! I would just beat the cream until it’s whipped cream and I think you’d be fine. I hope that helps!

  4. Dorothy Dunton says

    Hi Ashley! When we moved somehow my ice cream maker disappeared, but with so many no churn recipes (which are much easier) I don’t miss it! The hardest part is deciding which to make first!

  5. Kelly says

    I love all the choices and turtle is totally a winning combination! I could go for a double scoop of this right now and can’t wait to try this soon!
