Home-Made Ice Cream (No Ice Cream Machine needed)

So I went to the store the other day and wandered down the ice cream aisle. I went to my favorite ice cream in the whole world, Chocolate flavored Haagen-Daz. But it is nearly $7 for one pint. It’s madness! So I decided to try and make some home-made ice cream that was close to my favorite. This recipe is probably the closest I will come to the rich flavors and creaminess of Haagen-daz. All you are going to need is a base ingredient list of 2 things, and then whatever you want to flavor it with! I am just doing a basic chocolate because it is my favorite.  It should take 6 hours to set in the freezer, but I just left mine in over night. This recipe should produce roughly 3 pints of ice cream for the same price as 1 pint of store bought Haagen-Daz.


  • 1 pint of Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1 20oz can of sweetened condensed milk – chilled in the fridge
  • 1 tbs of 100% Dark Chocolate Cacao powder – Click here to read about the benefits of dark chocolate
  • 1 hand mixer/ table-top mixer


I added the vanilla in the picture so that if you are wanting to create an ice cream with a cookie or other chunky ingredient, instead of the chocolate you would want a base as vanilla. You would just switch the 1 tbs of cocoa powder with 1 tbs of vanilla.


  1. Put your whisking tool onto your hand/table top mixer. Pour the entire contents of the heavy whipping cream into a large bowl. Begin whisking slow at first, and then slowly bring up speed as it gets thicker. Don’t go over medium speed.
  2. Stop once it gets nice soft peaks.
  3. Then add your sweetened condensed milk.
  4. Then whisk again till it is a bit firmer and everything is mixed properly.
  5. Then add your Cocoa Powder/vanilla.
  6. If you are wanting to add cookies or cakes, you are going to need to crush the into bit size pieces. Not too small, not to big. Then you will gently fold them into your ice cream mixture.
  7. After completing your mixture (either just the base, or combined recipe) transfer into a container that has a lid. I used some varied sized Tupperware.

I hope you enjoy this nice and easy sweet treat! Let me know what kinda ice cream you made!

With Love,
