It’s easy and comes out so creamy and delicious. Everything you’re hoping for in an ice cream. I don’t know about you, but for me ice cream is what summer is all about. Eating it on cones, dripping down chubby baby fingers, everything about it screams hot days and cool nights.
The secret to creamy delicious whipped ice cream without a maker is powdered sugar. If you use enough sugar it will make it impossible for ice crystals to form.(I didn’t say this was healthy did I, because it’s not-but so worth it.) The best part is you can add anything you like to create your perfect ice cream. I used frozen fruit bars for convenience but you could also use frozen fruit, fresh fruit, syrups, etc. This version is adapted from this recipe.
1/2 cup Whipping Cream
1/4 cup Milk (I used 1%)
1/2 cup Powdered Sugar
1 cup add ins (fruit bars, fresh/frozen fruit, etc.)
Start by placing your whipping cream in a mixer. (You could use a handheld electric mixer) And whip the cream until it’s no longer runny. It should coat a fork without dripping off easily.
While that’s going place the milk and fruit of your choice into your blender and blend until completely liquid-it should be the consistency of a smoothie.
Once you have that, whisk the powdered sugar with your fruit/milk mixture. Be sure to that no lumps remain.
Then store it in a freezer safe container for at least 3 hours. This will make enough to serve 3-4 depending on how big your servings are. Serve it up and enjoy!

Looks yummy! I have only ever seen the sweetened condensed milk with the whipped cream for no churn recipes, so this is a nice alternative!
