No-Churn Ice Cream
This no-churn strawberry swirl ice cream recipe does not require an ice cream maker to make. In fact, you can have creamy homemade ice cream easily in just a few hours of time!
You may find a lot of homemade ice cream recipes that start on a creme anglaise base. For this no churn ice cream, we will just need 2 simple ingredients and 2 simple steps for the base. No cooking required!
What Ingredients Do I Need?
The base of no-churn ice cream is simply just dairy whipping cream and condensed milk. We will also add in flavorings as well as mix-ins:
- Condensed Milk
- Dairy Whipping Cream: I like to use Elle & Vire whipping cream. Get the dairy whipping cream (35-38% fats), not the non-dairy ones.
- Vanilla Extract
- Strawberry Sauce: You can see my homemade strawberry sauce recipe here! If you don’t like strawberries, you can also use other types of fruit coulis / compote. I will recommend you to mash or blend the strawberry sauce for a smoother texture in the ice cream.
How Can I Make This Strawberry Swirl Ice Cream?
We will just need to whip the whipping cream, vanilla extract and salt till stiff peaks form (straight peaks). Then, we will add in the condensed milk and mix till combined.
In this hot weather, do use cold cream and try to keep it chilled as you whip it.
To do this, I always place my mixing bowl (metal) and whisk or beaters in the freezer for 5-10 mins before whipping the cream. And while whipping, if I am using hand mixer, I will place the bowl over a larger bowl of ice water. This can help prevent splitting or separating. If the cream separates from over-beating, you will have to use a new batch of cream and start over.
After mixing in the condensed milk, the base is done! Next step would be to alternate layer the ice cream base and strawberry sauce. Leave the ice cream to set in the freezer for a couple of hours before serving. It’s that simple!

Does No Churn Ice Cream Taste Like Regular Ice Cream?
I find the taste a little different compared to the ones we can buy from supermarkets. It is slightly richer and creamier – probably from the condensed milk. The strawberry sauce helps to cut through the richness of the ice cream, and makes the taste pretty balanced!
How To Store This Homemade Ice Cream?
Alternatively, you can also use a deep loaf cake pan to store it.
For containers that do not come with a lid, simply smooth the surface of the ice cream as much as possible. Press a piece of baking paper against the surface, and cling wrap the entire container before freezing it.
The ice cream, with lid or tightly cling wrapped, should keep for about 2 weeks in the freezer.
