This No-Churn Brownie Ice Cream is absolutely incredible. Honestly, I’ve been in the no-churn ice cream making spirit and this is one of my recent recipes that had me looking for more once it was all gone. Haha.
While I’m not the biggest fan of chocolate, brownies for some reason have me hooked. So of course, it was only obvious that I would be hooked to this ice cream too.
Plus, the brownies that I made for this ice cream are these Easy Extra Fudgy Vegan Brownies which adds such a beautiful texture and chewiness to everything!

Much like many no-churn ice cream recipes, this particular one needs organic heavy whipping cream, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla, maple or Agave, homemade or store-bought brownies, sea salt and chopped chocolate (optional).
The homemade ice cream ingredients for this recipe are simple:
Heavy Whipping Cream
Sweetened Condensed Milk
Maple Syrup (Sweetener)
Homemade or Store-bought Brownies
OK, so let me just say that I’ve seen some pretty good brownie box mixes that I would definitely try if I were pinched for time or just didn’t feel like whipping it from scratch myself. Bob’s Red Mill has a really great option.
However, when it comes to brownies, I truly enjoy the gooeyness that comes from making them homemade. Like most things homemade, you are able to adjust and personalize your brownies to how you like them. Whether that means adding veggies, nuts, extra chocolate, making them more chewy or more fudgy—whatever!
Therefore, I’ll always be #TeamHomemade.
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 Long Does Homemade Ice Cream Last? Honestly, homemade ice cream can last for a little while, somewhere close to 2 weeks.
Are There Any Tips or Hacks for Making the Perfect No-Churn Ice Cream? Yup. It always starts with getting the right ingredients. Firstly, it’s about getting quality ingredients for the best results and more importantly, it’s about getting the EXACT ingredients listed and not substituting.
Also, if you’re trying to make different flavors and decide on using other extracts, be sure to start by adding small amounts first. Lastly, always ensure that anything that will be folded in is chopped and prepped beforehand. That means any chocolate, nuts, etc. should be chopped and easy to fold in.
Leftovers are best stored in an air-tight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. For longer storage, you can refrigerate for up to 5 days. Warm slightly once ready to serve.
In addition, you can freeze these beauties for an even longer storage time. Just add them to a freezer-safe air-tight container and they can last for up to 3 months. To thaw, remove from the freezer and add to the fridge overnight.
