No-Churn Ice Cream

You might be asking yourself, what is no-churn ice cream?

No-churn ice cream is silky, creamy ice cream that is made without the use of an ice cream maker or churner. Typically, ice cream is made by creating a custard or yogurt base followed by taking a few spins in an ice cream maker. The ice cream maker circulates the ice cream base, slowly freezing it over time by creating small ice crystals in the base. After some time, very soft ice cream emerges from the machine.

While the ice cream maker freezes the ice cream as it churns, it is also incorporating air into the ice cream. American ice cream usually has quite a bit of air whipped into it, making it light and fluffy. In contrast, Italian gelato has much less air whipped into the base, making for a thicker and creamier texture than American ice cream.

While using an ice cream machine is a perfectly delicious way of making ice cream, it requires a large single-use appliance that is heavy and difficult to store in small spaces. Instead, anyone with any sized kitchen can make no-churn ice cream without special equipment. These ice cream recipes are more accessible to everyone. Plus, once you get the hang of making no-churn ice cream, you can mix in any ingredients that you like to create your perfect ice cream flavor.

Whipping the Cream for Snickers Ice Cream

The most vital step of making no-churn ice cream is whipping the heavy whipping cream before mixing in the other ingredients. This step incorporates air into the ice cream, which gives the perfect final texture. Most ice cream recipes require whipping in some way.

Without whipping air into no-churn ice cream, your base will harden in the freezer until firm. The result will be a solid block of frozen snickers-flavored cream. While that actually sounds delicious, it is unfortunately not what we are going for. 

Use either a whisk or a hand mixer to whip your heavy cream to stiff peaks. Soft peaks will not add enough air into the ice cream as it freezes. Too much air and whipped could separate the whipped cream. Be sure to carefully but thoroughly whip your cream before incorporating any other ingredients.

Tips & Tricks

  • STORAGE: When kept in an air-tight container, ice cream lasts for about 2 weeks.
  • HOMEMADE CARAMEL SAUCE: Heat 1 cup brown sugar in a medium skillet over medium-high heat and stir constantly using a rubber spatula until clumps are formed. Add 6 Tbsps butter (cubed) and continue to stir until everything has melted and become a dark 'amber-like' color. Continue to stir consistently until fully melted and bubbly, about 2-3 minutes. Now, slowly whisk in 1/2 cup heavy cream and continue stirring until well incorporated and sauce has fully thickened. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly before using. Set aside.
  • STORAGE (CARAMEL SAUCE): Leftover caramel sauce can be stored in a tightly sealed mason jar for up to two weeks. When ready to use, simply reheat sauce in the microwave at 15 second intervals until softened and at room temp.
