What is No Churn Ice Cream?

This form of homemade ice cream eliminates the need for an ice cream maker. It’s prepared by blending ingredients like heavy cream, condensed milk, and various flavorings, and then freezing the mixture. The process yields a creamy and smooth texture, without requiring the churning or continuous stirring typical of traditional ice cream recipes.

Advantages of Making Ice Cream Without Churning

  • No special equipment is required: unlike traditional ice cream recipes, you don’t need an ice cream maker or any other special equipment.
  • Easy to make: with just a few simple ingredients and some basic kitchen tools like a hand mixer, anyone can make delicious frozen treats at home.
  • Versatile flavors: the possibilities are endless when it comes to flavor combinations. From classic vanilla to creative fruit and cookie mix-ins, there’s something for everyone.
  • Less time-consuming: since there is no need for churning or constant stirring, you’ll need less time to make these simple ice cream recipes compared to traditional methods.

Tips for Making Perfect Homemade Ice Cream

  • Use cold cream: for a creamy and smooth texture, it is important to make sure your heave cream is well chilled.
  • Don’t overmix: once the concoction has thickened, stop mixing. This helps to avoid breaking down the air bubbles that give no churn ice cream its light and fluffy texture.
  • Freeze in a shallow container: using a low-sided dish allows for faster freezing and easier scooping.
  • Experiment with flavors: get creative and try different flavor combinations to find your favorite. There are no rules here so let your imagination run wild.

While there are plenty of fruit-flavored ice creams on this list, this one might be the most unique one. Orange does pop up as an ice cream flavor once in awhile, but it’s pretty uncommon.
