Of course, the easiest way to all that pleasure is to use store bought ice cream but you can make this even more special with homemade ice cream. And the no churn method is a quick way of making creamy delicious ice cream without the need for an ice cream maker.

I have made 3 variations from a basic no churn vanilla recipe. A delicious salted caramel swirl, a rich dark chocolate mocha and a summery fresh strawberry no churn ice cream. The basic vanilla recipe is perfect as is but the variations are a breeze to make. The salted caramel recipe is so good and you can use the sauce for any other dessert you make. The chocolate is just a slab and a half of chocolate melted with some espresso powder and mixed into the creamy base.

The strawberry version needs an extra step or two due to the water content in the mashed strawberry. The water in the berries will go crystally so you need to mix the ice cream a few times in the first few hours of freezing. That way you break down the ice crystals and at the same time you ensure that the berries do not drop to the bottom of the container. But even with this extra effort the ice cream is really delicious and super easy to make.
