What is NO Churn Ice cream?
Alright, let’s break it down – no-churn ice cream is pretty straightforward. It’s all about two key players: whipped cream and sweetened condensed milk.

It’s a simple and delicious way to make your own ice cream at home, no fuss, no muss. It’s like being the Willy Wonka of your kitchen but with ice cream.

The Pudding Mix Secret:
This recipe works like a charm, and here’s why: that cheesecake pudding mix is the unsung hero. It steps up and does a couple of important jobs:
- Flavor Enhancement: it brings a velvety cheesecake flavor to the pumpkin ice cream party.
- Texture Improvement: With its thickening properties, the pudding mix contributes to a smoother and creamier texture in the finished ice cream, ensuring a satisfying, velvety mouthfeel.
- Ice Crystal Control: By preventing the formation of ice crystals, the pudding mix maintains the ice cream’s consistency, preventing it from becoming overly icy and preserving its creamy goodness.
