Have you ever opened the freezer hoping to treat yourself to some ice cream, but you find that there isn’t any left? Don’t worry! Milk Means More is here to tell us how we can make our own ice cream at home, and it’s not as hard as you think! 

To celebrate July being National Ice Cream Month, here’s a Milk Means More recipe for how you can make your own ice cream at home without an ice cream maker! Follow along with the video above on how to make your ice cream.

Below is the ingredients you need to make the no-churn ice cream base:

  • 2 cups of cold heavy cream
