    I make no-churn ice cream frequently. I even make my own sweetened condensed milk using 1 large can of evaporated milk and 1 small can (5 ounce) of evaporated milk and 1/2 cup of my preferred sweetener. I use 1/4 cup Boca Sweet and 1/4 cup Swerve powdered sweetener. Then I cook it down for about 25-30 minutes until it is a really light golden brown and pretty thick. Lastly, I pour it back into the large evap milk can and refrigerate it to get cold. It takes a while but I haven’t found a commercial sweetened condensed milk with other than regular sugars so I make do!!

    What I like about making my own no-churn ice cream is that I control what goes in! 1 pint of heavy whipping cream and 1 can of my own sweetened condensed milk for the base and then I add pureed fruit or chocolate or whatever I want. Two favorites of mine: chocolate!! and maple pecan using chopped pecans and a low carb maple syrup.

    I will be trying out some of the recipes found in this blog at some point.

    Hi Linda, being that I’m keto, i’ve made a lot of no churn ice cream over the years. I’ve also learned that to keep the ice cream scoopable and not rock hard as well as keeping ice crystals from forming, if you add a tablespoon of vodka (doesn’t need to be expensive) to your recipe, it will help achieve that goal. And, no, you do not taste the alcohol. At least I don’t and I’m not a drinker.
