No-Churn Cinnamon Ice Cream - Just three ingredients and no ice cream maker needed!

After we made (and photographed) yesterday’s recipe for Mexican Bread Pudding – I got to thinking…Our No-Churn Cinnamon Ice Cream would be a perfect complement to serve alongside that fantastic bread pudding!

No-Churn ice creams – like today’s cinnamon version – are super easy to make and they come out creamy and delicious and you don’t need an ice cream maker!

No-Churn Cinnamon Ice Cream - Just three ingredients and no ice cream maker needed!

Just three ingredients – heavy whipping cream, a can of sweetened condensed milk and Saigon Cinnamon – are whipped together in the bowl of a stand mixer (a hand mixer will also work).   Pour the mixture into a freezer-safe container and freeze until set – about 6 hours or so!  (Although regular cinnamon will work, try if you can to use the Saigon Cinnamon as it has a really fantastic flavor!)

Our No-Churn Cinnamon Ice Cream is cool and creamy with a hit of cinnamon spice that is perfect with recipes like our Mexican Bread Pudding, Mexican Brownies or even our Hot Fudge Pudding Cake!

    Love the idea of cinnamon ice cream! Unfortunately, I can’t have dairy. I wonder if this would work with coconut cream/milk? I’m going to try it and see how it turns out.

    • Martha wrote:

      I’d love to hear how it comes out with those substitutions Emily! I think the sweetened condensed milk is also the key to achieving the thick and creamy texture without churning so you’ll have to find a replacement for that too!

        I tried it both ways, with coconut milk (full fat) and coconut cream. Both ended up tasting great, but wasn’t quite the right consistency. The cream seemed to work a bit better, consistency-wise. I did, however, end up putting it into my ice cream machine (cuisinart).
        The first time it churned the result was a little icy so I added about half a shot of golden rum – it was delicious and brought out the flavor of the cinnamon. I wish I could’ve managed to make it a no-churn, but that seems rather difficult when making it dairy-free. I’ll definitely make this again 🙂

    What a lovely, creamy no-churn ice cream! I can think of lots of ways to use this – a scoop on top of apple pie sounds fabulous.
