It is a season for being outside and spending time together. Of course, I look forward to summer all year!
You probably know by now that I love to celebrate everything with food. Summer is no exception!

Right now, I have been making strawberry everything and my family is loving it. I recently whipped up a batch of homemade strawberry ice cream and everyone went crazy for it! They are already asking me to make it again. I definitely will because my recipe for homemade no churn strawberry ice cream just tastes like summer. Let me tell you all about it!
No Churn Strawberry Ice Cream
Most ice cream requires an ice cream maker to churn the cooked ingredients together, freezing the ice cream while also folding in air to make it fluffy and light. But, the thing is, not all of us have an ice cream maker at home. How can we make perfect ice cream too?!
My no churn strawberry ice cream recipe is made without an ice cream machine and it still turns out perfectly. No fancy appliance needed here! There is no cooking the ice cream mix and I only use 5 ingredients. It is an ice cream recipe that’s so easy anyone can make it.
Ingredients for strawberry no churn ice cream
I love simple summer recipes. As much as I love to cook, I want to be outside in the summer, spending time with my family in the sunshine, not stuck in a hot kitchen. To make this strawberry ice cream, you only need about 15 minutes and 5 ingredients. Here is what to grab at the grocery store:
- sweetened condensed milk– This is what will give the ice cream it’s sweet taste. It also helps keep the ice cream soft and creamy.
- heavy whipping cream– Ice cream is a dairy based dessert and my recipe uses heavy whipping cream as the ice cream base. Whipping cream also fluffs nicely when beaten which gives the ice cream a lot of air. Folding in whipped cream is what enables you to skip the ice cream maker!
- vanilla extract– Vanilla enhances the taste of the ice cream, making it taste sweeter and richer.
- fresh strawberries– You need fresh chopped strawberries to make strawberry ice cream! I like to chop the strawberries pretty small so you get a strawberry in every bite.
- strawberry syrup or strawberry topping- I like to use strawberry syrup to give the ice cream and extra boost of strawberry flavor. It also turns the ice cream a pretty pink color.
Once you have all of the ingredients you need, grab a mixing bowl and an electric hand mixer. A stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment will work as well. A rubber spatula and a bread loaf pan or large freezer safe container are also needed to make my ice cream recipe. Once you have these ingredients and tools, you are ready to go!
