No-Churn Strawberry Ice Cream

No special equipment is needed to make this easy, fruity ice cream. Enjoy it plain or try one of our mix-in ideas.

  • Preparation Time15 mins
  • Serves16
  • DifficultyEasy
1 pound frozen strawberries, thawed at room temperature for 10 minutes
One 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Pinch fine salt
2 cups double cream, cold

Mix-In Options:

Pretzel: 1 1/2 cups yoghurt-covered pretzels, broken-up
Doughnut: 3 jam doughnuts, cut into small pieces
Balsamic: 2 tablespoons reduced balsamic vinegar (Simmer 1/2 cup vinegar until reduced to 2 tablespoons; let cool.)

Special equipment: a 9-by-5-by-3-inch metal loaf pan, chilled

For the ice cream: Pulse the strawberries in a food processor until you achieve pea-size chunks. Add the condensed milk, vanilla and salt. Pulse to combine; remove to a medium bowl and set aside.

Whip the cream with a mixer on medium-high speed until firm peaks form, about 2 minutes. Fold about 1 cup of the whipped cream into the strawberry mixture with a rubber spatula until combined, then fold the lightened mixture into the whipped cream until well blended. Pour into a chilled 9-by-5-by-3-inch metal loaf pan, and freeze, covered, until thick and creamy, like soft-serve, about 2 hours. Swirl in any desired mix-ins with a spoon. Continue to freeze, covered, until solid and scoopable, about 3 hours more.
