No Churn Nutella Ice Cream Recipe

By | March 25, 2017

Despite the fact that Nutella is a "spread," I've always maintained that anything other than straight from the jar with a spoon is a dilution which reduces the overall eating experience. Sure, if I'm offered a slice of toast with this chocolate hazelnut spread (no, not a cheap imitation) then I'll certainly take it but if I have the option you'll find me hoeing into the jar with a spoon until it's all gone. However, I'll have to make an exception to my theory for this delicious no churn ice cream recipe. It doesn't take a genius to realise that the adding of sweetened condensed milk, whipped cream and Ferro Roche (in my version) will lead to a pretty potent concoction and that is certainly the case here.

No Churn Nutella Ice Cream

Ready to get serious about your ice cream making?

The 'no churn' method is great for occasional batches but if you want to get serious about your ice cream making I suggest you invest in an ice cream maker designed for home use.

The two ice cream makers I recommend are the Cuisinart ICE-70 and the Breville BCI600 XL. Click the images below to read more about those two machines or check out my complete guide to ice cream makers to see all the options and read the pros and cons of each.

Notes

  • Nutella can be quite hard and difficult to work with if it's cold so I'd suggest bringing it to room temperature or evening loosening it up in the microwave before using. Secondly, you can combine the Nutella directly with the sweetened condensed milk to get a, still sticky, but workable mix to then mix into the whipped cream. Just make sure that you mix thoroughly to avoid white patches you can see in my photos!
  • The recipe suggests sprinkling some crushed Ferrero Rocher over the top but I went to the next level and chopped a number for distribution throughout the ice cream and I'm pretty happy with the results
  • While we're on the topic of Ferrero Rochers, if you have any left over, try your hand (and mouth) at 'The Ferrero Rocher Challenge' and see how many of the suckers you can eat within one minute. It's a lot harder than you think but fun to try. My personal record is 6 - comment below if you can beat it! 😉
