When it comes to this Homemade S’mores Ice Cream, No-Churn is required at all, which is honestly one of the best parts. So, I’m definitely falling in the swing of things and the holiday season, which Christmas is fast approaching, I might add.

Thankfully, I’ve started my Christmas shopping already, however, I still have a few things left to purchase before my list is complete. I even plan on treating myself to a gift because this year’s work game has been insane to say the least, but I’m grateful of course.

OK, so what’s the deal with this ice cream? It’s a REMAKE! Yup. I literally created this recipe a few years ago, but chose to recently remake the entire recipe, reshoot photos, and make little tweaks to ensure that everything is perfect! Trust me, I made this one SO MUCH BETTER! You’re sure to be satisfied. 

What Are the Main Parts of this S’Mores Ice Cream?

Much like the classic S’Mores flavor, this ice cream boasts of it’s addition of marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate pieces. I definitely wanted to remind you of a good S’More sandwich treat. 

With my latest tweak, however, I chose to add marshmallow flavor in the ice cream itself to give a greater burst of flavor by using Marshmallow Fluff. Of course this is optional, but I highly recommend this! Haha.

What Ingredients Do You Need? Just These 9!

The homemade ice cream ingredients for this recipe are simple:

Heavy Whipping Cream

Sweetened Condensed Milk


Sea Salt

Maple Syrup (Sweetener)


Graham Crackers

Chocolate (Chopped)

Marshmallow Fluff (optional)

My Original Way of Creating a Marshmallow Base.

Originally, this Ice cream’s base was marshmallow, which I achieved this by roasting 2 cups of marshmallows in the oven for a few minutes and then folding them into the batter.

The gooeyness of the roasted marshmallows gives this ice cream another level of creaminess that cannot be denied.

Then I chose to add a cup or so of chopped chocolate—Ghirardelli Semi-Sweet Chocolate Baking Bar, to be exact! But of course, you can choose to use their many other variations of chocolate, if preferred. Either way, the taste is so premium. 

In addition, you can roast or torch your marshmallows for a nice fancy toasty look! Haha.

Making No-Churn Ice Cream.

When it comes to making ice cream without an actual churn machine, there are simple standard steps that create a nice creamy result. First things, first——ensure that you have a great metal loaf cake pan or ice cream container that you can store it in so that it freezes well. If not, you can also use a standard cake pan

Once you have that solidified, then the next step would be to whip your heavy cream in an electric stand mixer until fluffy before folding in sweetened condensed milk and your marshmallow fluff (if desired). That’s the basic parts of the ice cream while everything else is topped. 

How Can I Add More Flavor + Goodness?

Granted, this ice cream recipe comes loaded with S’Mores flavor, however, you can always take things a bit further by adding brownie bits or different variations of chocolate together! Speaking of brownies, I definitely recommend checking out our Easy Extra Fudgy Vegan Brownies! They would be the perfect addition! Of course, you can always add other ingredients such as caramel, raspberries (which go great with chocolate), or a bit of rum flavoring in your ice cream.
