Recipe FAQs

Does no-churn ice cream taste good?

Yes! It’s not exactly the same thing as ice cream made with an ice cream machine, but it’s soft and creamy and comes out just like ice cream! It’s delicious!

What does no-churn ice cream mean?

Making ice cream requires an ice cream maker that churns the ingredients to create the final product. No-churn ice cream makes a version of ice cream that does not require any special equipment, such as an ice cream maker. It also doesn’t require any form of a churning process.

Is evaporated milk the same as condensed milk?

No! Evaporated milk is much thinner in consistency and does not have the same sweetness as sweetened condensed milk. You will want to be sure you’re using sweetened condensed milk for this recipe.

Tips & Tricks

  • Freezing a metal loaf pan ahead of making this recipe helps the ice cream to freeze more quickly, but if you don’t have a metal pan, that’s okay too! Just make sure it’s freezer safe!
  • When whipping cream, you can check if it’s ready by stopping the mixer and sticking the beater or whisk straight down into the mixture and pull it straight up. If it creates a peak that stands up on it’s own, it’s ready. Be careful not to overwhip it!
  • When folding in the Nutella mixture, fold gently to try to not let all the air out of the whipped cream!
