This creamy, no-churn ice cream is just 2 ingredients! No ice cream maker needed and the outcome is a fluffy, creamy, coconut flavored ice cream.
Last year, I discovered no churn ice creams (hello, cookies and cream ice cream). Since then, I’ve been hooked. I’ve pretty much retired my ice cream maker because this no-churn method is so much easier. I’m very excited to experiment with more flavors now that it’s officially ice cream weather.
Up first, is this coconut creation. I’ve made coconut ice cream before but I wanted to create a no-churn version.
There are so many different coconut products out there on the market now. I recently bought some coconut oil for my skin and my husband was so confused when he read the label and it states it can be used for baking, cooking, skin and hair. Haha!
I tried a few coconut products before settling on this one.
Cream of Coconut. Not to be confused with coconut cream or coconut milk. This is like sweetened condensed milk but with coconut instead. It pours out like a thick syrup and is used often in cocktails. You can get it at Walmart, supermarkets, Amazon, and wine & spirit stores like BevMo. If you have trouble finding it, look for it displayed next to other cocktail mixers.
Making this ice cream is easy. I’ve already made two batches! I garnished mine with some toasted coconut flakes, but that’s completely optional.
2 Ingredient No Churn Coconut Ice Cream
- 2 cups 16 oz cold heavy cream
- 14 oz cream of coconut (see note)
- Add cold heavy cream to a stand mixer and using the whisk attachment, mix on high speed until stiff peaks form.
- Scoop whipped cream into a large bowl. Pour in the cream of coconut and use a large spatula to fold it into the whipped cream until the cream of coconut is completely mixed in. Your whipped cream will lose its stiff peaks but should still look fluffy when you're done. You can see photos of what it should look like here.
- Pour ice cream into a 9 x 5 loaf pan. Use a spatula to smooth and even out the surface. Freeze overnight. If you desire more texture, you can sprinkle some toasted sweetened coconut flakes on top of the ice cream before serving.
- Cream of coconut is not the same as coconut cream or coconut milk. It's like a sweetened condensed milk but with coconut instead, so make sure you buy a version that is already pre-sweetened. It pours out like a thick syrup and is used often in cocktails. You can get it at Walmart, supermarkets, Amazon, and wine & spirit stores like BevMo. If you have trouble finding it, look for it displayed next to other cocktail mixers.
