Never Buy Ice Cream Again

You don't need an overpriced pint of ice cream to enhance your dessert course — and, as it turns out, you don't need a fancy ice cream maker either. These no-churn recipes for classic chocolate, vanilla and strawberry ice cream yield creamy batches that are easily enhanced with choice mix-ins: candies, cookies, nuts, you name it. The only equipment you'll need is an electric mixer and a 9-by-5-by-3-inch loaf pan. Summer entertaining has never been so cost effective — or delicious.

No-Churn Chocolate Ice Cream

Sweetened condensed milk, heavy cream and unsweetened cocoa powder are the foundation of this creamy chocolate ice cream. Customize different batches by stirring in some of your favorite chocolate-friendly ingredients.

Rocky Road

Chocolate-covered almonds and marshmallows transform this no-churn chocolate ice cream into classic rocky road.

Smoky and Spicy

Finely diced chipotle chiles add a touch of heat and smoke to decadent chocolate scoops. Think of it as Mexican hot chocolate, but frosty.

Malted Milk Balls

These old-fashioned candies add just the right amount of crunch to this otherwise silky-smooth ice cream.

No-Churn Vanilla Ice Cream

More of a vanilla person? Just combine sweetened condensed milk with vanilla extract, then fold fluffy peaks of whipped cream into the mixture. Adding just a pinch of fine salt will enhance the depth of the vanilla flavor.

Cookies and Cream

Crushed chocolate sandwich cookies transform basic vanilla ice cream into this oldie-but-goodie ice cream flavor.


Polish off a light summer meal with a scoop of this sweet-and-citrusy ice cream laced with lemon curd and buttery shortbread cookie crumbles.

Crunchy Cereal

Perhaps it's been a while since you started your day with cinnamon breakfast cereal, but add the crisp mini squares to vanilla ice cream and you'll feel immediately nostalgic for bygone breakfasts.

No-Churn Strawberry Ice Cream

This creamy no-churn ice cream recipe is just as straightforward as the vanilla recipe, except you'll find sweet frozen strawberries in every bite.

Jelly Doughnut

Fluffy yeasted doughnuts stuffed with sweet fruit jelly make the perfect addition to Food Network Kitchen's strawberry no-churn ice cream. Break the doughnuts into pieces and swirl them into the ice cream before freezing.

Yogurt-Covered Pretzels

Crisp pretzels dipped in vanilla yogurt will add a nice salty note to this otherwise sweet-and-fruity batch of ice cream.

Balsamic Vinegar

Balsamic may seem like an odd addition at first, but chefs have paired strawberries with the rich, syrupy vinegar for ages. Reduce the balsamic on your stovetop until it's thick, then swirl the sweet-and-tangy ribbons into your ice cream.

No-Churn Matcha Ice Cream

Green tea shines in this simple no-churn matcha ice cream, which is delicious alone or topped with toasted coconut and chocolate chips.
