Strawberry Ice Cream (No-Churn, 2-Ingredient) + VIDEO

Strawberry Ice Cream (No-Churn, 2-Ingredient) is thick, creamy, and amazingly delicious. It is a blissful ice cream speckled with fresh strawberries and it's so good you may never get store-bought again! This simple recipe comes together in a flash and is sure to be your go-to summer ice cream recipe.

Strawberry Ice Cream (No-Churn, 2-Ingredient)
The warmer weather is on its way and I am getting my ice cream recipes together. Nothing is more refreshing on a hot summer day than a big bowl of homemade ice cream.

If you agree, you definitely need to try my Ice Cream in a Bag, this No-Churn Peaches and Cream Ice Cream, and of course my Triple Berry Sangria Ice Cream.

And, what is a bowl of ice cream if it isn't topped with Homemade Whipped Cream and a big scoop of my No-Fail Caramel Sauce. Or, maybe you'd prefer my 3-Ingredient Homemade Strawberry Syrup instead.

If you want to make homemade strawberry ice cream without an ice cream maker, this 2-ingredient ice cream recipe is exactly what you need. You simply combine the ingredients and freeze. The result is a delicious, creamy strawberry ice cream that your whole family will love.

Does this strawberry ice cream have chunks?

No, this strawberry ice cream is smooth and creamy. You process the ingredients in a blender so there are no chunks in the ice cream.

If you want strawberry ice cream with chunks of strawberries, you can chop a few strawberries and add them right before you pour the ingredients into the freezer container.

You can use a loaf pan like the type you'd make bread in as a freezer container. Or, you can use another type of freezer-safe container. If it has a lid, put the lid on.

Or, you can cover the ice cream carefully with plastic wrap.

What do you need to make 2-ingredient ice cream?

All you need to make this strawberry ice cream is a bag of frozen strawberries and a bottle of your favorite coffee creamer. I chose French Vanilla Coffee Creamer when I made this. You will also need:
  • Blender - A high power blender is a must in every kitchen.
  • Ice Cream ScoopI must have 6 ice cream scoops but this is my go-to.

Can I use sugar-free coffee creamer?

Yes, if you're worried about the sugar content in this coffee creamer ice cream recipe, you can use sugar-free coffee creamer instead of regular creamer.

It's a great option for a more diabetic-friendly ice cream recipe.

Helpful Tips to make No-Churn 2-Ingredient Strawberry Ice Cream

  • Use a high power blender like a Blendtec or Vitamix for best results. I have also made this recipe with a Ninja with great success.
  • You can also use other frozen fruit (peaches, berries, etc).
  • Turn the blender off and scrape down the sides with a silicone spatula as needed.
  • If you are out of coffee creamer you can substitute 1 cup whole milk, 3/4 cup heavy cream, 1/4 cup powdered sugar, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.

How long will this stay good?

This strawberry ice cream recipe is so good, it never lasts more than a few days in our house. But, if you do want to store it for a longer period, you certainly can.

Homemade ice cream is best enjoyed within a week of making it. Be sure that you cover the top tightly to prevent freezer burn. I often press plastic wrap over the top for added protection.

For best results, store it in a shallow flat container in the back of the freezer. Never store ice cream in the freezer door.

While you can store it for longer than a week, it may not taste as good as if you ate it sooner. So, feel free to eat a big bowl as often as you like.

What is the best way to serve homemade ice cream?

There are so many delicious ways to serve this strawberry ice cream. You can always enjoy a big bowl on its own.

Or, top it with your favorite ice cream toppings. Or, you can have a scoop (or two) in an ice cream cone. Try adding a scoop on a slice of pie or sandwiching it between two homemade cookies.

Last week when we went grocery shopping I was really craving ice cream. Being we do not buy ice cream that often, I let my 6-year-old pick out the flavor.

Needless to say, we came home with a chocolate ice cream with chocolate fudge and chocolate brownie bits in it.

Enjoy!

    1. Hi Colleen! I have not tried it, however I feel like the frozen strawberries would be a little too challenging for the stand mixer. If you do give it a try, please let us know how it goes.

  3. Can you use fresh strawberries? We have them pretty much all summer long here in

    1. Fresh strawberries are great. I would just wash them and pop them in the freezer for a few hours first. That way, you blend it into a thick and creamy ice cream. If they are not frozen you will get a strawberry cream, which may not be as thick and creamy when frozen. Enjoy and let us know how it goes.

  9. I'm wondering how/if adding Nutella would work? The combination of strawberries and Nutella is a favorite of mine! I've made no-churn Nutella ice cream and this recipe as well, just never together. Thoughts?

    1. That sounds like a decadent and scrumptious Strawberry Chocolate Hazelnut Ice Cream. I would consider the sweetness and maybe sub out half and half for the creamer, as it is already sweetened. Let us know how it goes. That is going to be amazing!

  10. I haven't made any ice cream this year. This sounds good. I'll have to pin this for later.

  11. Hi :)
    I did with frozen wild blueberries and my husband love it. I blend it everything in a food processor and I add 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream to it but it was still too sweet for me.

    1. That sounds fabulous! Perhaps adding a pinch of salt to your berries and cream would balance the sweetness for you. Enjoy and thanks for commenting!

  12. I tried this last night and it was DELICIOUS!!!! I'm going to get some fresh (ripe)peaches on Sunday and will the peach version then. Do you have any other of these ice-cream recipes?

  13. I also used sugar free French vanilla. Yum! Last weekend, my daughter and I made this and really enjoyed it. This weekend, we made it with mangos. It was even better.

    I froze the strawberry in a container and freezes so hard, you have to thaw it a bit to eat it later. This week, I froze the leftover mango in silicone mini muffin pans, which works out marvelously well for a small treat.

  25. This is SOOO good! I had to stop my husband from eating it all when it came out of the blender! Unfortunately, the next day, it was hard as a rock. I tried to microwave it a bit, but mostly just softened the outside. Do you leave it out of the freezer for awhile before you serve it?

    1. Fruits does freeze hard. We let it set out on the counter for about 10-15 minutes before serving, depending on the temperature of the house. Enjoy!

  26. Hi Donna, thank you for the recipe. I am currently at home with my children who would love for me to make them this recipe; however, I do not have any strawberries. Is there a replacement that will have the same effect? Unfortunately, I am unable to drive to the store to buy strawberries because we just got snowed in (we live in Alaska)! Also, I have 7 kids and I am afraid they will gang up on me if I cannot make this for them. Please help. Thank you!

  40. Hi Ms.Donna So enjoy TSRI.I also enjoy the kitchen and creating new food ideas. I am a PC.In making the no churn Ice cream & yogurts,I have found that if you add 2Tablespoons of Sanalac Nonfat Drymilk Powder it cuts down on the Ice crystals forming.I always stir mine,at least once.Especially if I am leaving it overnight before serving.

  41. Appreciate this post. Will try it out.

    ReplyDelete
  42. You can add unflavored gelatin to your mix and it will keep it from freezing so hard. The recipe I tried said one teaspoon and it was so much better consistency. I still had to let it soften 5-8 minutes. But not ice crystals like the previous time I made it. I think I might try 1.5-2 tsp the next time.
