No-Churn Homemade Ice Cream

Thanks to my Pinterest addiction, I recently came across something that really caught my eye… an ice cream recipe from Cookies & Cups that a) only required two ingredients and b) didn’t require an ice cream churn.  What the what?  Sign me up!

I did add a little vanilla extract and then swirled it with butterscotch caramel ice cream topping but technically, you only need the two main ingredients: whipping cream and sweetened condensed milk.  As for adding other flavors and toppings… the possibilities are endless.

Now, this is insanely rich so I don’t think I’ll be making it often but for birthday parties, block parties and summer barbeques… this is going to be my new go-to recipe to blow everyone’s face off with homemade awesomeness.

No-Churn Homemade Ice Cream
recipe adapted from Cookies & Cups 2-Ingredient Ice Cream
1 pint whipping cream
1 14-oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
8 ounces ice cream topping of choice*

With an electric mixer, whisk whipping cream on high speed until stiff peaks form.  Fold in vanilla and sweetened condensed milk.

Fold into a sealable container.  Pour a few ribbons of ice cream topping over cream mixture then swirl with a spoon to incorporate it throughout.

Freeze for 6-8 hours then serve.

*I made a double batch
*Ninja Barb and I sat in the front yard watching the neighborhood onions play Saturday afternoon while sampling this goodness and came up with about 437 flavor variations.  But since we’d been drinking Yuenglings for several hours prior to that, I can’t remember most of them.  These few come to mind now…

Banana Pudding – add banana slices, crushed vanilla wafers and marshmallow ice cream topping.

Butter Pecan – substitute the vanilla with butter flavoring and add chopped pecans.

Cookies & Cream – add crushed Oreos and fudge ice cream topping.

Cherry Chocolate Chip – substitute the vanilla with almond extract and add cherry pie filling and mini chocolate chips.

Hi there! While I’m not able to respond to every comment, I try hard to answer any questions that haven’t been addressed in the post, recipe or in other comments.

I can tell you now 1) I have no idea if you can substitute Minute Rice or brown rice in my recipes because I’ve never used them and 2) If I know how to convert a recipe to a Crock Pot version, I will make a note about it (otherwise, I don’t know).

And though I may not respond to them all, I do read each and every comment and I LOVE to hear from you guys! Thanks, y’all! - Mandy
