Easy Homemade No Churn Ice Cream
Salted Caramel and Pecans
Enjoy a bowl of salted caramel no churn ice cream, when you want a decadent homemade treat that is easy to make.
This is a ‘no churn’ ice cream recipe, so you don’t need an ice cream maker.
The ice cream is made with a regular mixer and other basic kitchen supplies, that you probably already have on hand.
It starts with a basic vanilla ice cream recipe, but then the magic happens.
You’ll make salted caramel in a saucepan and then swirl it and some chopped pecans into the vanilla.
You’ve got homemade ice cream that looks and tastes like a gourmet treat.
The no churn ice cream is best, when it has been in the freezer overnight.
If you don’t eat it all right away, you can store it in the freezer for up to 2 weeks.
However, I’m guessing your ice cream will be long gone before that.
Salted Caramel No Churn Ice Cream Recipe
Prep time: 20 minutes
Freeze time: Overnight
Salted Caramel Sauce
1 cup Granulated Sugar
2 T Water
½ cup Heavy Cream
4 T Butter, unsalted
1 t Fleur de Sel Salt
Ice Cream Base
14 oz. can Sweetened Condensed Milk
2 cups Heavy Cream, cold
1 t Vanilla Extract
½ cup Pecans, chopped
1) First, prepare the salted caramel sauce. Add the heavy cream to a small saucepan to warm it up, so that it isn’t cold when you add it to the hot ingredients.
2) In a second saucepan heat the sugar and water on medium-high, so that it comes to a boil. Continue boiling, so that it turns to a deep amber color.
3) Slowly whisk in the warm heavy cream, so it is thoroughly incorporated. Remove from the heat and add the salt and butter. Stir until the butter is melted and mixed in. Transfer to a dish and set aside sauce cool.
4) Next, begin to make the ice cream. Pour the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla extract into a bowl and set aside.
5) Add the heavy cream to your mixing bowl and use your mixer to whip it, so that stiff peaks form.
6) Add a scoop of the whipped cream to the vanilla sweetened condensed milk and stir it in. Then, gently fold in the rest of the whipped cream. You want it to be thoroughly mixed, but still airy.
7) Pour half of the ice cream mixture into a loaf pan. Drizzle with the cooled salted caramel sauce and sprinkle with chopped pecans. Top with the remaining ice cream mixture.
8) Use a butter knife to incorporate the salted caramel and pecans throughout the ice cream. Make cuts back and forth through the ice cream mixture to swirl the sauce and nuts into the ice cream. Cover with waxed paper and press down to remove air pockets.
9) Freeze overnight. The ice cream will keep fresh for up to 2 weeks in the freezer, if you can make it last that long.
