Quick & Easy Mini Ice Cream Popsicles Recipe

Making ice cream without an ice cream machine is possible, and the result is super easy & delicious!

The secret is in three ingredients: whipping cream, condensed milk (which you can make at home as we explain below), and natural flavourings. Mix everything, put in the refrigerator, and leave to set for a few hours. That’s it: your ice cream is ready, and waiting for you to devour!

Condensed milk is fundamental ingredient in this recipe, the thick and syrupy milk acts as a sweetener and softens the ice cream, allowing for easy scooping.

How to make the best Mini Ice Cream Popsicles?

For this recipe we divided the ice cream base into three bowls, so you can mix and match flavours. Here you’ll find recipes that work for white, milk and dark chocolate. Once frozen, melt more chocolate add a little coconut oil and dip your frozen ice cream to create a magic shell!

The result will blow your mind: a creamy homemade ice cream, with a crunchy chocolate shell, that softens and becomes even better as soon as you take it out of the freezer.

Ever better, this ice cream recipe is the perfect base for any flavour you choose. Swirl in salted caramel sauce, add a fruit puree or nut paste instead of chocolate, and you’ll have unlimited ice cream flavours in a snap!
