Easy No-Churn Egg Nog Ice Cream



Easy No-Churn Egg Nog Ice Cream: This irresistible holiday dessert has just 6 ingredients, takes 15 minutes to prep, and is made using simple kitchen tools – no ice cream machine needed!

I once thought that homemade ice cream was only possible with the help of an ice cream maker. I was delighted when I found out how easy, and fun, it is to make no-churn ice cream at home! All you need is a hand mixer, a metal loaf pan, and a few simple ingredients!


Seasonal recipes, especially dessert recipes, are my favorite! I look forward to making Christmas themed desserts each December, like my Peppermint Bark No Bake Cookies, No-Churn Peppermint Stick Ice Cream, and Gingerbread Spiced Caramel Corn. This year, I knew it was time to make a treat featuring one of my other favorite Christmas flavors: egg nog!

One of the advantages to making your own ice cream is the ability to adjust the flavor. The amount of egg nog flavor in this ice cream can easily be adjusted to personal tastes. For a more subtle egg nog flavor, cut back on the rum extract slightly. For a bolder flavor, increase the rum and vanilla extract.

No-Churn Egg Nog Ice Cream

1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 tsp rum extract
1 pinch salt
1 tsp ground nutmeg
2 cups heavy cream (cold)

1. Chill a 9x5x3 metal loaf pan in the freezer.
2. Combine condensed milk, vanilla and rum extract, nutmeg and salt in a large bowl and set aside.
3. Whip heavy cream with a mixer on medium-high until stiff peaks form.
4. Carefully fold 1 cup of the whipped cream into the milk mixture using a rubber spatula (see note), then gently fold the remaining whipped cream in until well blended.
5. Pour into chilled loaf pan, cover and freeze about 5 hours.
6. Enjoy!

Notes: If you have never folded ingredients before, I recommend searching “How to fold ingredients.” on YouTube or Google. It’s very simple once you’ve seen it done!
