Salted Caramel No Machine Ice Cream

Salted Caramel Ice Cream

There’s a frozen yogurt shop down the road from my house that I often visit. And when I say down the road, I mean I can walk there (which won’t be good for my thighs in the long run). They recently started serving a salted caramel flavor and my, oh my, did I fall in love! Over a big, heaping bowl one day I exclaimed to Adam that I was going to figure out a way to make it.. and I did!

When I say I did recreate it, I mean I made it in ice cream form. The tanginess of the yogurt in homemade froyo isn’t appealing to me, but sweet ice cream can brush my tastebuds any day. And being that I’m broke and don’t own an ice cream maker, I made this wonderful stuff without one.

For the ice cream:

  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup caramel bits
  • 3-5 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 – 3/4 teaspoons salt

In a microwavable bowl, melt caramel bits with salt. Stir in 3 tablespoons of milk, adding more as needed to achieve a fairly thin substance. Let it cool completely. Meanwhile, whip the two cups of heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Stir the salted caramel into the sweetened condensed milk until completely combined. Fold in the whipped cream, put in a freezable container (tupperware works fine), and freeze! 

As the temperature’s get hotter, this ice cream becomes more and more delicious. And it’s so simple. I adapted my no machine ice cream recipe from here.

    I have an ice cream maker and it is such a pain to use. Not only that, but the ice cream it makes is always so soft! So I might just have to try this method instead. Salted caramel is one of my favorite flavors too!

      I grew up on homemade ice cream, so I miss the texture myself. But I do hope you like this method! And yes, salted caramel is absolutely delicious.

And the verdict is..
