How to Make No-Churn Ice Cream in Easy-to-Follow Steps
- Beat the heavy cream using a hand-held or stand mixer. A stand mixer can be a lot easier because you can whip the heavy cream at a higher speed with a quality stand mixer. We really love our Kitchenaid Pro-line stand mixer.
- Fold in condensed milk and flavoring.
- Divide ice cream into three bowls and add food coloring to two of the bowls and fold in blue and red food coloring into two of the bowls.
- Scoop by spoonfuls (alternating colors) into a freezer safe pan or container. Then, continue scooping until all the ice cream is added to the pan.
- Lift pan and tap gently on counter-top to release air-bubbles. Next, cover and freeze for 5-6 hours.
