This Vanilla Ice-cream is so creamy and tasty. It doesn’t require an ice-cream maker and it’s made without sweetened condensed milk. It makes such an awesome treat and it’s fun to make with your kids.

I can remember visiting my grandma and she would always make us ice-cream cones. We would sit on her back porch and eat them every time I would visit. They were always so delicious. Growing up I have many fond memories of my mom churning homemade ice cream for my birthday. It always made my birthdays so special and I looked forward to homemade ice-cream every year.

I don’t have the luxury of an ice-cream maker and wouldn’t even know the first thing about working it! So I started a mission to find the best way to make homemade ice-cream without churning it. Lo and Behold I finally did it! Homemade Icecream that I don’t have to churn and doesn’t even require sweetened condensed milk. 

As I look outside and see the snow falling, I think to myself, what better time for ice-cream! If I’m being honest, I could eat ice-cream during a blizzard. (no kidding) 

Try These Different Variations

Chocolate chip ice cream: Look for high-quality chocolate chips made of your favorite type of chocolate. Dark, milk, and white chocolate are all delicious with ice cream. You can even change things up with different chocolate chip flavors. Try Butterscotch, Peanut Butter, or Mint Chocolate Chips for some fun flavors. Add one or add a combination, the sky’s the limit!

Cookies and Candy:

Cookies that are broken up and tossed in make such an amazing flavor.  Toss in some oreo cookies for the ultimate cookies and cream. You can actually use any type of cookie or better yet, bake your own homemade cookies. 

Candy bars are delicious tossed into the icecream. Just remember in order to break into pieces you’ll need a sharp knife. Try some mini candies like M&M’s, so yummy!

Fresh Fruit: Try adding fresh fruit like Strawberries, Raspberries, Blackberries, and even Blueberries. Simply chop and toss into your icecream. I do advise folding the fruit into the ice cream with a rubber spatula, versus mixing with a hand mixer or stand-alone


Nuts: Walnuts, almonds, pecans, macadamia nuts, and cashews all make tasty additions to ice cream. I recommend lightly toasting the nuts before adding them to the ice cream. Toasting the nuts will add a nice flavor, extra crunch, and they will hold up better.

Cookie Dough: There is something so magical about cookie dough ice cream. Simply made up any kind of cookie dough you like. Make sure your cookie dough is egg-free so that you are not eating raw dough. Try the sugar cookie dough or even the peanut butter cookie dough!

Is it Safe to Consume Raw Eggs?

I grew up eating an egg nog every morning and fed my kids egg nog too. I also eat my eggs sunny side up and have been known to take a taste or two of raw cookie dough. The only time I’ve ever had food poisoning was from a restaurant where their employees weren’t washing their hands good enough. Not every egg is contaminated with salmonella. The salmonella risk grows with the age of the eggs, and the length of time they are unrefrigerated. If you keep your eggs cold and buy fresh often even if you buy from supermarkets that buy from a big box store, your chances of getting a salmonella contaminated egg are not huge. 

This recipe uses raw eggs and if you prefer you can use egg beaters or another form of pasteurized eggs. You will notice, however, that the pasteurized eggs will not whip up well and the ice cream will more than likely not freeze well either. I advise that you use your best judgment.
