When the ice cream craving hits, especially during the summer months, this recipe is the answer. No-churn cookies and cream ice cream is incredibly simple to make, is made from four ingredients, and satisfies all ice cream cravings.

What is "No-Churn" Ice Cream?

No-churn ice cream is ice cream that is made without the need for an ice cream maker. It comes together with a standing or handheld mixer, a spatula, a loaf pan, and a freezer. It's just that easy!

How does it work?

When ice cream is made in an ice cream maker, the air is whipped into the cream mixture as it churns. Aeration lightens the mixture as it freezes in the machine. Similarly, in the case of no-churn ice cream, the air is introduced into the heavy whipping cream as it is whipped. This lightens the cream which is then folded into the sweetened condensed milk.

Sweetened condensed milk is milk that has had the water removed and sugar added to it. Because of its concentration and lack of water, the sweetened condensed milk freezes well when mixed with the aerated cream. Thus, giving us ice cream.


This ice cream recipe is incredibly simple in preparation and process. It uses only four ingredients and comes together in about fifteen minutes. The hardest part of this recipe is waiting for the ice cream to set in the freezer!

  • Heavy Whipping Cream - The cream has to be cold for whipping. For the best-whipped cream, place the mixing bowl and whisk attachment in the refrigerator to chill as well.
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk - One full can of sweetened condensed milk.
  • Pure Vanilla Extract
  • Chocolate Sandwich Cookies - The cookies need to be crushed. This can be done in a ziplock bag and crushed by hand, or in the food processor.


As stated above, the process of making this no-churn ice cream could not be easier. You'll need a large bowl, a standing or handheld mixer, a spatula, and a 9-by-5-by-3-inch loaf pan.

  1. Whip the heavy whipping cream.
  2. Fold the whipped cream into the sweetened condensed milk.
  3. Fold in the cookie pieces and transfer the ice cream.
  4. Freeze to set.

Yes, it is just that easy!

No-churn cookies and cream ice cream is the solution for when the ice cream craving hits at home. It is so incredibly easy to make and absolutely satisfying to eat. It tastes just like classic ice cream, equally as creamy and equally as joyful to eat. With only four ingredients, there's no excuse not to make a batch of this homemade cookie and cream ice cream. Homemade ice cream has never been easier!

    I’ve made the no churn ice cream with the condensed milk & all I can taste is the “condensed milk”. Very unappealing to my taste buds, but it does make for an easy ice cream substitute.

      I tried this exact recipe before and I also could only taste the condensed milk. Try doubling the amount of heavy cream and more vanilla. You will not notice the condensed milk taste.
