Is making no-churn ice cream easy?

  • You guys, it is seriously like the easiest thing in the world!
  • All you need is a hand mixer or stand mixer, a few large bowls, and a desire to make ice cream.
  • No rock salt is needed.
  • No ice cream maker required.
  • And, no worries to get in your way. It works each and every time!

THIS is some seriously great tasting Irish coffee ice cream! If you think it will be too boozy in flavor, let me assure you that the flavor is mild and mellow. It will in no way overwhelm you with a snoot full of whiskey and mint!

Make it for St. Patrick’s Day, and then make it again for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Memorial Day, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday…you get the idea! But please remember to always eat your boozy ice cream responsibly!

What is the secret to whipping heavy cream to make no-churn ice cream?

  • Make sure the bowl and beaters are impeccably clean.
  • Chill the bowl and beaters for at least 20 minutes before whipping cream.
  • Do not whip the cream for too long or it will turn into butter and not whipped cream.
  • Keep a close eye on it and once stiff peaks form, you’re ready to fold in the sweetened condensed milk and the remaining ingredients.

Can heavy cream be whipped by hand?

  • Yes, but it will take a lot of endurance and arm strength.
  • As in using a hand mixer or stand mixer, make sure the bowl and the whisk are both clean and cold to start, and then whisk like crazy until you’ve achieved stiff peaks…and large biceps!
  • The good news is, if you’ve whipped the cream by hand, you can now eat twice as much ice cream because you’ve had your workout for the day! Kidding. Not kidding. 😉

Is adding alcohol to no-churn ice cream important, and can this ingredient be skipped?

  • Since alcohol doesn’t freeze, adding just the lightest touch to an ice cream base will keep the consistency smoother and creamier than a no-churn ice cream without alcohol.
  • Adding alcohol will keep the ice crystals from forming and make the ice cream easier to scoop.
  • Naturally, if you’re making ice cream for the kids, by all means, leave it out!
