No Churn Vanilla Ice Cream

Print Recipe Jump to Recipe

We try to limit the amount of sugar our kids get, but on Friday and Saturday nights we have dessert. On Friday morning I ask the girls what they want for dessert that night and 95 times out of 100 they choose ice cream. So believe me when I say we have tried every ice cream on the market!

When we moved to Luxembourg last summer, we sold both of our ice cream makers. Yes, we had two. I used to really enjoy making my own ice cream and trying out different flavors. But I haven’t invested in a new one since I don’t know how long we’ll be here. I decided to try no churn ice cream, and it’s really good!!!

The coolest part about making no churn ice cream is that it really only takes 2 main ingredients. Of course, you can add all of the mix-ins you wish. Just mix for a few minutes, put in an air tight container, and freeze overnight. Voila!

Pro Tip

Flavor is so important in ice cream. When making a basic vanilla ice cream, it’s best to use a real vanilla bean. Cut the bean down the center and use the back of a paring knife to scrape out the inside of the bean. Save the rest of the bean to make vanilla sugar or homemade vanilla extract. ?

This no churn vanilla ice cream is also delicious with our homemade salted caramel sauce.
