No Churn Caramel Apple Ice Cream Recipe

Before you think that sounds too complicated, this recipe only takes 4 ingredients! It really is very easy to make.

One of the things I really love about this recipe is that it doesn’t require an ice cream maker! While I like kitchen gadgets as much as the next person, I also don’t like spending money on something when I don’t need to!

The hardest thing about this easy ice cream recipe is deciding how to serve it. We like to serve our ice cream in mason jars or coffee cups, because I can buy enough for my family and not have it cost me too much. I have had my eye on some cute ramekins that would be fun to use when we have people over.

Now if you’re worried you can’t make this caramel apple ice cream because you don’t have an ice cream machine, don’t worry! You don’t need one. I’m telling you, all you need is 4 ingredients – no ice cream machine. Let’s get started.

How to make Caramel Apple Ice cream:

1. First you need to chop the apple pieces from the apple pie filling into smaller pieces. Set them aside when you’re finished. If you do not want to use canned apple pie filling, you can make your own. Simply peel and chop 2 medium sized apples. Mix together ¼ cup brown sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon. In a skillet over medium high heat, melt 2 tablespoons of butter. Add in the apples and brown sugar cinnamon mixture. Cook the apples for about 10 minutes or until the apples are tender. Keep stirring them occasionally so that they do not burn. Remove from heat and allow the apple mixture to cool.

2. Next, whip the heavy cream until stiff peaks form. I used a hand held mixer for this step.  Then gently fold the whipped cream into the sweetened condensed milk.

3. Once combined, spread about ⅓ of the ice cream mixture into a 9 x 5 loaf pan. Pour the caramel over the ice cream and spoon about ½ of the apple filling evenly over the caramel.

4. Then spread another ⅓ of ice cream mix into your loaf pan. Spoon the rest of the apple filling over ice cream.

5. Once you’ve added all of the apple pie filling, add the rest ice cream mix into loaf pan. Run a spatula or butter knife back and forth through the pan to swirl the fillings.

6. Lastly, freeze for at least 3-5 hours in the freezer. I’ve found that if I use a deep freeze it usually firms up faster. Once it’s frozen, use an ice cream scoop and serve! You can garnish the top with a sprinkle of apple pie spice, caramel sauce and whipped cream for extra flair! Store any leftover ice cream in a large bowl that is freezer safe.
