2 Ingredient No-Churn Ice Cream (No Eggs or Ice Cream Maker)

This easy homemade ice cream is only 2 ingredients and doesn’t require an ice cream maker or making a custard base. The ice cream comes out super creamy. You can use this ice cream recipe to create many other flavors.

Summer is here and this is my favorite ice cream recipe to make. I love making it just as is or adding other ingredients to create more flavors.


  • Heavy Cream
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk

These are the only ingredients you need to make this ice cream. But of course, you can add more to make more flavors.

How to Make No-Churn Ice Cream

  • The heavy cream is first whipped to stiff peaks. It’s then folded in with the condensed milk.
  • Then you put it into the freezer until it’s frozen solid (I usually do this overnight). And then it’s ready to serve!

Flavor Ideas

  • Add vanilla to make vanilla ice cream. (Make sure to mix the vanilla in with the condensed milk first.)
  • Add cocoa powder to make chocolate ice cream.  (Mix the cocoa powder in with the condensed milk first.)
  • Mix in add-ins like fresh chopped fruit, chopped nuts, chocolate chips, or crumbled cookies. (Stir them in gently after you’ve made the ice cream.)

  • 2 cups (16 oz) heavy cream
  • 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk full fat


  • Add heavy cream to a mixing bowl and beat on high speed until stiff peaks form.
  • In a separate large bowl, add condensed milk. Using a spatula, gently fold in 1/3 of the whipped cream until uniform and no condensed milk streaks remain. Fold in the next 1/3 and then the final 1/3. Make sure you are folding and not mixing too hard. You don't want to lose the volume created by the whipped cream. Your end result should look very fluffy, like whipped cream but without the stiff peaks.
  • Pour ice cream into a 9 x 5 loaf pan. Freeze overnight or for several hours until solid.


  • If you buy a 14 oz can of condensed milk and 1 pint of heavy cream, you don't need to measure them out. Just use the full amounts.
  • I don't have any substitutions for this recipe.
  • This makes approximately 6 cups of ice cream. The nutrition estimate is for 1/12 of the recipe (or approximately 1/2 cup).

  1. Can I put in a 9×13 pan and cover with saran wrap tight to frezze or?

    • It will work but it’s a much bigger pan (holds twice and much), so your ice cream will be in a thinner layer.

  2. Hi, being lactose intolerant I make my own condense milk and use Orley Whip instead of heavy cream.
    My favorite is salted caramel ?

  3. I tried 1 cup cocoa, 1 cup mini marshmellows, 1/2 dozen Andres mint mini bars and 1/2 dozen small maple cookies w/maple icing in middle, all chopped up and folded in. Oh, to die for. So rich and creamy.

  4. Hi, What is the measurement for cocoa powder if I want to add it to the recipe. Thanks

  5. Can’t believe this is even possible! Thank u for such a wonderfully easy homemade ice cream recipe! I’m excited to try this, TOMORROW of course!

  6. I made this recipe this summer and it tastes soo good! I’m amazed it only two ingredients and some flavors. I can save money. I don’t have to buy a ice cream maker. Thank you for the recipe ?.

  7. Awsome so good

  8. Sounds easy and delicious!!

  9. What is heavy cream. I’m in Australia so I’m wondering if it’s what we call thickened cream or is it double thickened cream or is it something else 

  10. I have a recipe like this one but it has a few more ingredients. Like some whole milk and vanilla. Then there is some sugar. Not as much. I will try both of these.

  11. I make this all the time. I make 2 pans, lol. I add oreo cookie pieces and fudge sauce to one pan and the other is caramel sauce. Amazing! Family loves them.

  12. Hmmm. Looks good; however, using heavy cream in these keto recipes sets one up for high cholesterol. Half n half would probably not work as well in recipes that are keto or semi-keto. Any suggestions?

    • This recipe has only been tested with heavy cream and isn’t keto. So we don’t have another suggestion for you.

  13. Exactly what I needed! Thanks

  14. I’ve been making this for several years now and recently I was in the mood for lemon so after I made the ice cream, I mixed in Lemon Curd (you can buy it at Kroger or Walmart). It was amazing.

  15. How much vanilla or.cocoapowder do we add to make those flavors of chocolate or vanilla ??

  16. It is delicious.

  17. I make this all the time and you can add anything you want to it. I never buy icecream at the store anymore. I use 2 cups of whipping cream whipped up and incorporate your condensed milk the add your goodies. It’s the best!

  18. Wow my 48yr old son whom I’m travelling around Australia with in our rv will love this. I’m going to add flavours to it and will let you know how it turns out?? thank you Sweetheart
