How to make Strawberry Ice Cream No Churn:

  • Step 1. Combine the fruit with sugar. In a small bowl, combine the strawberries and sugar until the fruit is evenly coated. Allow the mixture to sit for 15 minutes to give the strawberries time to reduce their juices.
  • Step 2. Whip the cream. While you allow the strawberries to soak, use an electric hand mixer to whip the cream and vanilla. Beat for about 4 minutes on high speed, or until stiff peaks form.
  • Step 3. Lower the speed. Reduce the speed of your hand mixer to low and mix in the sweetened condensed milk and strawberry mixture. Blend until it is homogenous with the whipped cream.
  • Step 4. Spread the ice cream mixture into a loaf pan. Transfer the ice cream mixture into a 9×5 inch bread loaf pan. Tap the pan on the counter a few times to even the mixture out.
  • Step 5. Freeze the mixture. Allow the ice cream to sit in the freezer for 5 hours covered with plastic wrap.
  • Step 6. Serve and enjoy the ice cream! It is delicious.

Storage:

Store the ice cream in an airtight container with plastic wrap in the freezer for up to a month. You might also want to place a layer of wax paper directly on the ice cream. This will help keep it really fresh and prevent any ice crystals from forming.

Tips for Strawberry Ice Cream Recipe:

  • Freeze overnight. Depending on how cold your freezer is, your ice cream may take an extra hour or one less hour to freeze. When possible, I like to let my ice cream freeze overnight just to be safe.
  • Metal container. If you have a metal loaf pan, use that over glass. It freezes faster.
  • Full Fat ingredients. Full fat and full sugar ingredients give this recipe the best flavor and consistency. We do not recommend substituting these ingredients.
  • Fresh fruit is best. Fresh strawberries will give you the most flavor. However, you can also use frozen strawberries. For frozen strawberries, let the fruit thaw in the fridge before using.
  • Thicker consistency. For a chunkier ice cream, you can add an extra quarter cup of diced strawberries to your ice cream. This will be added after it has been transferred to the loaf pan.
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk is a must. The sweetened condensed milk serves as both a sweetener and a thickener in your ice cream. When folded into the whipped cream, it will help give your ice cream a smooth, creamy consistency.
  • Enhance the flavor with vanilla. The vanilla extract helps draw out some of the natural sweetness in the strawberries.

Variations:

  • Other types of fruit. This ice cream base is delicious with other types of fruit. Try raspberries, blueberries or peaches for a new flavor to try.
  • Add ins. Toss in a handful of chocolate chips for a decadent combination with the strawberry mixture.
  • Food Coloring. The pretty pink color comes from the strawberries. If you desire a deeper color, you can add a few drops of red food coloring.
  • Lemon Juice. Enhance the fruit flavor with a splash of fresh lemon juice. The combination of flavor is so tasty.
  • Diced strawberries. We prefer the chunks of strawberries, but another option is to puree using a food processor.

This tasty ice cream blend is so delicious and a guaranteed crowd pleaser. It is effortless to make while turning out fabulous. This ice cream is amazing for cook outs, birthday parties or just because.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you double this recipe?

Yes, this recipe can easily be doubled. Just keep in mind that you will need two loaf pans to freeze the mixture in.

Can frozen strawberries be used in this recipe?

Frozen berries can be substituted in this recipe. While we do recommend fresh due to the enhanced flavor, frozen can be used. You will need to thaw the strawberries first and drain any excess moisture.

What makes No Churn Ice Cream soft?

Typically, when you use an ice cream maker, the constant churning keeps ice crystals from forming. This makes the ice cream soft and creamy.

No Churn ice cream retains its softness by using a mixer to combine the ingredients. Whipping this mixture prior to freezing helps to incorporate the air.

Also, the high fat content in the mixture helps to prevent ice crystals during the freezing process.
