Banoffee no-churn ice cream - this homemade ice cream is SO good, and so easy - you don't need any fancy equipment! Just throw it in the freezer, and the next day you'll have homemade ice cream that rivals even the best shop-bought brands.

I don’t think I have ever been this impressed with myself before! Getting great grades in my A Levels, graduating from uni, even that one time I completely emptied the laundry basket… nothing comes close to how impressed I am with this homemade ice cream.

This was actually my first batch of ice cream ever – so if you’ve never attempted homemade ice cream before, don’t run away thinking that this recipe is above you! I swear it couldn’t be easier.

I always thought homemade ice cream was something that needed a big clunky ice cream machine – or at the very least, needed to be stirred every ten minutes for twenty hours straight as it froze. Nope! This no-churn ice cream doesn’t need any fancy equipment, and only takes about 10 minutes to prepare. Just whisk up your base ingredients until they’re nice and thick and frothy. You should be able to write your name with the mixture that drips off the whisk before it sinks in (unless your name is Christopher or Francesca, in which case maybe just write my name instead). Once the mixture is the right consistency, just throwit in the freezer in whatever tub or tin you have to hand, and the very next day you have homemade ice cream that rivals the stuff you buy in the shops.

And I don’t mean the cheap supermarket own brand stuff either – this ice cream was as good as, if not better than, the super high-end stuff. Honestly. If I wasn’t so lazy, I’d never buy ice cream from a shop again.

The recipe for this no-churn ice cream is adapted from one I found on the BBC Good Food website (come on, it was my first ever attempt at homemade ice cream, I’m hardly just going to magic the recipe out of the air, am I?). But, since I’ve never been one to follow a recipe to the letter (it’s no fun that way), and the base recipe is really easy to adapt, I added some mashed banana and toffee sauce to make banoffee ice cream.

Best decision ever. The flavours in this ice cream are unreal. It’s super sweet, super creamy, super rich, and pretty much just makes me want to dive in headfirst. I grated a little bit of chocolate over the top because I wanted you to think I’m fancy, but you can totally eat it straight out of the tub in your pyjamas if you prefer.

I am now dreaming of more variations of this recipe. Favourite flavour combinations, anyone? I’m thinking my next attempt might involve white chocolate…

  1. Hi there!!
    I am dying to make this but wondered how i would adapt the recipe to use my ice cream maker? I want to make it with my 2 year old little boy so the machine is novelty. Thank you xx

    1. Hi Leanne! I have never had an ice cream maker so I actually have no idea. I imagine that since it will churn the mixture up for you, you won’t need to whisk it for quite as long beforehand… but otherwise, I’d just throw it all in and see what happens?! You won’t get swirls of toffee sauce in the same way I did because it will all be mixed through by the ice cream maker, but it should still be really tasty. I’m very much in the ‘try it and see what happens’ camp :) let me know how you get on!

  2. Hi, Becca,

    I made this over the weekend, and it was great! We couldn’t find toffee sauce, so we used caramel sauce instead, and it was delicious! Top it with some slivered almonds, and om nom nom. My only question is — what’s the secret to whisking the cream/milk? I used an electric beater, and it was still a bit watery. Any tips? Thanks, Nicki

    1. Glad you enjoyed it Nicki! :) How long did you beat it for? To be honest it’s usually just a case of carrying on until it gets thicker, it can take a good few minutes. Often it will stay pretty runny for quite a long time and then suddenly thicken up in like twenty seconds.

  3. Condensed milk ice creams are so yummy and versatile. I no longer own an ice cream machine (mine broke, then the replacement broke and I gave up!) so I’ll definitely be trying this!

  4. It changed my life when I discovered the super easy condensed milk ice-cream and haven’t looked back since. It’s wonderful stuff, especially with fruit, although I now use much less condensed milk so it’s not as sweet.
