Ingredients for Strawberry Ice Cream

How to make no churn ice cream

  • Cut the tops off the strawberries and cut in half.
  • In a large bowl use a potato masher to break down the strawberries. You can also use a food processor to perform this action as well. Keep roughly 1/3 cup of strawberries out. Set aside.
  • Add Heavy Cream, Condensed Milk, and vanilla to a large bowl (or stand mixer) and beat until stiff peaks form – approximately 5 minutes – be careful not to over mix.
  • Add strawberries to the cream mixture and gently fold together until just combined.
  • Pour 1/2 mixture to a freezer safe container – glass is best.
  • Add 1/3 cup mashed strawberries to container and gently swirl together.
  • Pour remaining mixture on top and add a handful of chopped strawberries to top and swirl through mixture.
  • Cover top with plastic wrap and gently press to the top of the mixture.
  • Place in freezer for at least 4 hours or until frozen.
  • Allow to sit out for a few minutes and let soften before scooping.

Recipe Alternatives

The great thing about this recipe is that you can do SO MUCH with it. You can add a ton of different fillings depending on what you are in the mood for.

  • Strawberry Cheesecake: To do this: Whip 4 ounces of room temp cream cheese until smooth. Then, add the heavy whipping cream and condensed milk. Whip until stiff peaks form – scrapping down the bowl a couple times in between. Crush up a few graham crackers and scatter throughout the mixture. Add to container and add some cut up strawberries and graham crackers to the top then, freeze.
  • Mixed Berry: To do this: Use a mixture of your favorite berries – Strawberry, Raspberry, Blackberry. Follow the instructions and just replace your strawberries with whatever berry mixture you prefer.
  • Tropical: This is a fun one! Get a can of Cream of Coconut. Stick in the fridge the night before you are ready to make this. When you are ready, open the can and carefully remove the cream of coconut that should be at the very top of the can. Add this to your cream and condensed milk mixture and whip. Add pineapple chunks and chopped strawberries as your fillings!

I would recommend a glass container to freeze your ice cream in. It helps be able to thaw a little bit quicker than if you use a metal container like I did above. But, no matter what you use to freeze this in, it’s a delicious refreshing summery dessert. It does not last long in our house. But, my absolute favorite part? It literally takes less than 10 minutes to prep!

If you are looking for a truly refreshing weekend – this Frozen Strawberry Pineapple Lemonade is a delightful addition!
