Making No Churn Ice Cream

You’re going to make this treat in a few simple steps. Scroll to the bottom for the recipe, or get a few frequently asked questions before that. Enjoy!

What does no churn ice cream mean?

No churn means that you’re not going to use an ice cream maker. An ice cream maker keeps the ingredients turning over so that while your dessert is chilling, no ice crystals form (and it remains soft).

With no churn you’ll still be stirring the ingredients with a mixer, but there is no churning process required. I love it because – easy.

Is no churn ice cream real ice cream?

Yes, because no churn uses heavy cream (along with other ingredients). Ice cream is basically sugar and frozen cream, so no churn qualifies, at least in my book.

*Make sure to use good quality ingredients this recipe. I recommend high quality, fresh dairy products and pure (not imitation) extracts for the best results.

Your ice cream will have the best flavor if enjoyed as soon as it’s ready, but it can last for several weeks or months if you store it properly.

Pressing plastic wrap against the surface helps prevent freezer burn (in addition to putting a lid on the top).
