What is no churn ice cream?
Have you had no churn ice cream or at least heard of it? If not, you need to jump on this easy homemade ice cream bandwagon asap!
No churn ice cream means you don’t need an ice cream maker to make your very own homemade ice cream. Instead, I just use my stand mixer to beat the heavy whipping cream for the base.
And if you don’t have a stand mixer, you could definitely use a hand held mixer instead to beat the cream. Most people have at least one of these electric mixers handy so making homemade no churn ice cream is a snap.
Not only is making no churn ice cream super easy and accessible since you don’t need an ice cream maker, but this method lets you make all sorts of fun flavors like frozen hot chocolate ice cream or Nutella ice cream that you’d probably otherwise have a hard time finding outside of your favorite ice cream shop.
I’ve never seen apple crisp ice cream in the store, but with this easy no churn apple crisp ice cream, you can enjoy it anytime the mood strikes you at home.
How to Make No Churn Apple Crisp Ice Cream
Making no churn apple crisp ice cream is a snap!
To start, just add your heavy whipping cream to the bowl of your stand mixer. Then you are going to beat it on medium speed until stiff peaks form.
This step is super important and is how the air gets incorporated into the ice cream. And you need air to make the ice cream soft and scoop-able so don’t cut this step short in effort to rush through the ice creaming making.
While you are whipping the cream, add the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla extract to a separate bowl. Whisk those ingredients together until they are incorporated.
Then break the apple crisp up into small pieces and add them to the condensed milk mixture. Now you can fold this mixture into the whipping cream gently. Make sure you don’t over mix as you fold so you don’t deflate the whipping cream.
To finish, just pour the mixture into a metal loaf pan and freeze until solid. Once it’s frozen then you can enjoy with your favorite toppings.
You’ll be amazed how easy and delicious this no churn apple crisp ice cream is! Make it today to enjoy as dessert this week!
