Homemade Ice Cream Made Without a Machine!
Hi friends! I’ve been getting a ton of request for Homemade Ice Cream recipes, and I think it’s about time that I start answering them. The timing couldn’t be more right – The weather is warm (at least over here in the Northwest), and who doesn’t like ice cream on a nice warm day – or any day for that matter?
For those of you who are about to break out the ice cream machines, let me stop you right there – because we won’t be needing them! The homemade ice cream that I will be showing you how to make in this post doesn’t require an ice cream machine!
A lot of people automatically think that you NEED an ice cream machine to make ice cream, and that is completely false! The only “machine” that I used to make this homemade ice cream was my handheld mixer.
If you don’t have a handheld mixer, you can still make this recipe, but you will need to do a lot of mixing!
So, I’ve already told you that you don’t need an ice cream maker for this ice cream, but guess what else? This homemade ice cream takes only 3 ingredients to make! Like seriously, it doesn’t get any easier! Anyone, including a child, could make this ice cream.
The homemade ice cream that I’m about to show you how to make is super simple. In this post, I’ll show you how to make chocolate & vanilla Homemade Ice Cream, but in future posts we will cover different flavors.

Homemade Ice Cream
Vanilla Ice Cream:
- Pour the whipping cream into a mixing bowl, and mix it until it starts to thicken.
- Pour in the sweetened condensed milk, and add in the vanilla extract OR chocolate syrup ( depending on which ice cream that you are making).
- Mix everything until well combined, then pour the mixture into a freezer safe bowl.
- Cover the bowl, and place it in the freezer for a minimum of 4 hours.
