With this basic vanilla ice cream recipe, you can easily add your own ingredients to create new flavors. By folding in different ingredients, you can change the flavor of your ice cream and make it something you love.

With no-churn ice cream you want to fold your add-ins into the mix just prior to pouring into your freezer container. Try some these mix-ins:

  • Chocolate Chips
  • Chopped up candy bars
  • Broken up cookie pieces
  • Fresh fruit. Cherries, strawberries, blueberries, mango, and pineapple all freeze well.
  • Nuts. Chop up your favourite toasted nuts.
  • Layer in caramel or fudge. Don’t fold into the mix in this case. You want to layer the ice cream and your sauce.
