How to Make Caramel Apple Ice Cream (No Churn)
Here is a quick visual walk through of preparing homemade, no churn, Caramel Apple Ice cream. Full printable recipe card below.
Ingredients for the homemade ice cream recipe:
- Sweetened Condensed Milk
- Heavy Whipping Cream
- Apple Pie Filling (homemade apple pie filling)
- Caramel Sauce (crock pot caramel sauce)
The heavy cream is whipped until stiff peaks form, but don't over whip and end out making butter.
Fold the condensed milk in with the whipped cream. This makes the base for the no churn ice cream.
Spread out about ⅓ of the mixture in baking dish, and drizzle caramel sauce over it.
Chop up the apples in pie filling, and spread half the chopped apple chunks over the caramel.
Top the apples with another ⅓ of the ice cream mixture, then add apples that remain.
Finally spread the rest of the ice cream mixture over the second layer of apples. Freeze for about 4 hours.
Scoop ice cream into a dish and serve as is shown above, or make it into a sundae, add more caramel sauce and whipped cream on top, perhaps even more apples.
While this is the perfect ice cream to serve for fall, if you want something a bit more traditional try my No Churn Chocolate Ice Cream with Chocolate Chips.
Caramel Apple Pie Ice Cream
If you wish to make this recipe into an apple pie ice cream, that is super easy to do. Simply add a teaspoon of apple pie spice and a handful or two of crumbled graham crackers to the ice cream.
