What is no-churn ice cream?
No-churn ice cream is ice cream made without using a traditional ice cream maker.
It’s an easier alternative to making homemade ice cream.
It’s typically made with heavy cream that has been whipped into stiff peaks mixed with sweetened condensed milk. Then you’ll add in your mixins to create the flavor profile you’re looking for.
For example – for this ice cream I added in some cream cheese, fresh strawberries, strawberry jam, and crushed-up graham crackers to create the strawberry cheesecake flavor.
What do I need to make ice cream without an ice cream maker?
You will need some basic kitchen equipment but nothing too fancy – I promise!
I used my stand mixer with my whisk attachment to whip up the heavy cream. This is recommended as it will make the job just a little easier.
If you don’t have a stand mixer you can also use a handheld mixer with whisk beaters, or mix by hand with a handheld whisk.
You’ll also need a metal loaf pan to freeze the ice cream.
What’s the best strawberry jam for this recipe?
You want to use a delicious strawberry jam but don’t go out of your way to order the best of the best for the recipe.
My most favorite jam is made by Christine Ferber but I can only find it in Paris and I’m not about to put it in ice cream. I’m gonna eat it on toast and savor each and every bite.
So that means for a recipe like this I typically grab an easy-to-find jam, like Smucker’s strawberry jam.
How long can I store homemade ice cream?
This ice cream will stay fresh in the freezer for up to 3 weeks.
You’ll want to make sure you keep it tightly covered with plastic wrap so that no air gets to the ice cream.
