14 Ways to Make Ice Cream Without an Ice-Cream Maker
You know what pairs really well with a rosé-and-Netflix marathon? Ice cream. Salted caramel toffee pretzel ice cream to be specific. But wait, don’t run out to the grocery store. You can make your own frozen treat right this second without any fancy equipment. Here, 14 easy no-churn recipes that don’t require an ice-cream maker.
No-Churn Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
If you’re short on time, you can always use store-bought chocolate chips…but since you have to wait for the cream to chill anyway, why not take it all the way over the top?
No-Churn Cake Batter Ice Cream with Golden Oreos
Usually, we spring for real vanilla extract—but to get that signature cake batter flavor, use clear imitation vanilla extract, found in the baking aisle of the grocery store.
Raspberry Ice Cream
Five ingredients, fresh raspberries and no special equipment? Sign us up.
No-Churn Vegan Chocolate Ice Cream
Make this creamy, chocolaty treat if you have plant-based friends coming over for dinner.
Ricotta-Honey Ice Cream
We whip heavy cream and fold in ricotta cheese sweetened with honey, then simply transfer the mixture to a baking dish and freeze—no churning required.
No-Churn Sugar Roasted Peach Pie Ice Cream
The secret ingredient? Bourbon. (Yep, you heard us.)
Dark Chocolate Espresso Sorbet
Need a caffeine boost? Put down the latte and pick up a cone. (And did we mention this deliciousness just so happens to be vegan?)
Keto Ice Cream
Low-carb, keto-friendly ice cream is a thing. Best of all, you only need five ingredients and less than five minutes of prep time.
No-Churn Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream
This recipe makes 12 servings, so it’s the best excuse for a party. (Or hey, just polish off the whole thing yourself. We won’t judge.)
No-Churn Brownie Batter Ice Cream
This decadent-beyond-belief ice cream has a secret ingredient. (Psst: It’s cream cheese.)
Strawberry Ice Cream
Typically, adding strawberries to ice cream makes the mixture too icy. But if you roast the strawberries before pureeing them you’ll get thick, creamy results every time.
No-Churn Black Forest Ice Cream
Our favorite cake, in ice cream form. (Plus, there are tons of fresh cherries, so it’s basically a fruit salad.)
