If you’re craving a sweet, creamy treat but don’t own an ice cream maker, this no-churn strawberry ice cream recipe is perfect for you. It’s simple, requires few ingredients, and you don’t need any special equipment. This recipe harnesses the natural sweetness of strawberries and the creamy texture of condensed milk to create a delightful dessert you’ll love. 


  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups heavy cream, cold
  • Optional: 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips or crushed graham crackers for mix-ins


  1. In a blender or food processor, puree the strawberries with lemon juice until smooth. 
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the strawberry puree, sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla extract until well combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, use an electric mixer to whip the heavy cream to stiff peaks. 
  4. Gently fold the whipped cream into the strawberry mixture, being careful not to deflate the cream. If you’re using any mix-ins like chocolate chips or graham crackers, fold them in at this stage.
  5. Pour the mixture into a freezer-safe container. Cover and freeze for at least 6 hours, or overnight.
  6. Scoop and serve the ice cream directly from the freezer.
