Patriotic “No Churn” Ice Cream

The perfect treat to serve and celebrate for Patriotic holidays! This easy recipe for Patriotic No Churn Ice Cream has won rave reviews in our home! Only 3 ingredients and a few mix-ins and you’ll be making your own red, white and blue frozen treat!

I love our country and this year for the 4th of July,  I whipped up, yup, literally and figuratively this beautiful Red, White & Blue No Churn Ice Cream!

If you love some red, white and blue treats, then try these festive Ice Cream Sandwich Cookies, or these healthier, Red, White and Blueberry Yogurt Parfaits, or this beautiful Red, White & Blueberry Cocktail.

I personally think ice cream is still better from the ice cream maker vs. no churn, but you cannot beat no churn ice cream for a quick, low cost, E-A-S-Y, no bake dessert. Simply whip this up ahead of time, freeze overnight and you will have people screaming for ice cream.

Which by the way — my people; more specifically my man-children; LOVE this ice cream and my other no churn ice cream Circus Animal No Churn Ice Cream.

Our oldest informed me (while shoveling spoonfuls of ice cream into his mouth), that I should make TONS of this ice cream and open a shop! From the mouth of teens!




  • 1/2 package red, white and blue M&M’s (or sort out red and blue, about 1/3 of a cup)
  • 1/2-3/4 package white chocolate chips (I used Ghirardelli)
Ingredients for No Churn Patriotic Ice Cream L-R vanilla bean paste, organic sweetened condensed milk, Ghirardelli white chocolate chips, Heavy whipping cream and red and blue mini M&M's.

Simply whip your whipping cream until stiff peaks form, then slowly pour in your sweetened condensed milk and vanilla, mix until combined and pour into a standard 9×5 loaf pan or storage container.

If using mixins, stir in and then smooth into the loaf pan.

Note that the M&M’s will bleed, but that’s kind of the beauty of the ice cream. Don’t stir them in too long, you want them to freeze with the streaks of colors.

Freeze until solid, serve alone, or top with this Bourbon Caramel Vanilla Sauce or Rich & Chewy Hot Fudge!


I couldn’t find Red, White and Blue M&M’s this year, so I resorted to using a package of mini M&M’s and sorting out the red and blue ones, then thought, I should toss in white chocolate chips for the white! Tada! A legend is born, okay — maybe not, but I guarantee two things: 1. It’s SO EASY and 2. It’s SO delicious!

By the way, mix in anything you want! The basic vanilla recipe is included, be creative, here are thoughts I’ve had. 

  • Chopped Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups or Reese’s Pieces
  • Rich Chewy Hot Fudge Swirled and maybe chocolate chips
  • Butterscotch chips with some Bourbon Caramel Vanilla sauce swirled in.
  • Fresh summer fruits!! Slice strawberries, peaches, mangoes and more. Stir in blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and cherries (pits removed please)
  • Chopped Andes Mints, 1/2-1 teaspoon mint extract and maybe a swirl of hot fudge.
  • 1-2 Tablespoons Espresso Powder, Toasted Almonds and Chocolate Fudge (drooling!)
  • Stir in 1/2 cup Lemon Curd or 6 tablespoons lemon juice plus 2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 1-3 Tablespoons cinnamon and swirl in 1/3 cup dulche de leche

Hopefully that will get your juices going! Just think of your favorite ice creams and mix it in! And in case this recipe didn’t float your boat, check the following recipes out!
