No-Churn Strawberry Shortbread Ice Cream

It’s the start of Wimbledon today so there’s no better time to share a strawberries ‘n’ cream recipe with you all. I love making my own homemade ice cream and ever since I found a great, staple no-churn, no-machine recipe I’ve been hooked on creating new flavours ready to enjoy in the warmer weather. This ice cream recipe only requires a handful ingredients and will take less than 10 minutes of your time to make. In no time whatsoever you will have the most delicious handmade ice cream ready to scoop, eat and enjoy in the sunshine.



300ml double cream, chilled

397g (14 oz) can of sweetened condensed milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

150g (approx. 1 cup) fresh strawberries, chopped in small pieces

4-5 all-butter shortbread fingers, crumbled


1. Whisk the double cream to soft peaks. Fold in the condensed milk and vanilla extract. Place 2/3 of the strawberries into a food processor and blend until pureed, leave some bigger pieces of strawberry for texture. Fold in the pureed strawberries and half the crumbled shortbread.

2. Pour into a loaf tin or medium-sized airtight container. Scatter over the remaining chopped strawberries and crumbled shortbread. Cover with cling film and place in the freezer for at least 6 hours or overnight.

3. To serve, allow to thaw at room temp for 5-10 minutes. Then scoop into ice cream cones or into bowls with extra strawberries and shortbread.

    • Thanks so much Eva! It’s definitely the perfect recipe to make whilst it’s boiling hot outside. I can only imagine the weather in Bordeaux is absolutely bliss- just like it is where I am in the UK (nearly 30 degrees!). Really glad you like the recipe! 🙂 x

  7. Jess, this is greeeat timing because I’ve been thinking for a while that I’d like to make my own ice cream – but I don’t like the idea of buying a machine. Love this recipe – it’s so easy, isn’t it? Brilliant idea to make strawberries and cream ice cream in time for Wimbledon, too!

    • Thanks Helen! Really happy I’ve inspired you with the recipe- I was in the same boat last year. I bought an ice cream machine and it was absolutely terrible- required a lot of ingredients and took ages to make! But these no-churn recipes are amazing- you can add any flavours you like and they taste brilliant!

  11. Wow! This looks so delicious, Jess! Love how simple the ice cream recipe is and I’m guessing you could make it with any number of fruits/flavors. Awesome post!

  12. What an amazing combo! Those buttery shortbread cookies sound perfect with strawberry cream ice cream. Oh man, I really need a scoop now!

  13. This looks so perfect! I love strawberry ice cream, and putting some buttery shortbread crumbles into the mix makes it even more perfect! Thanks for sharing Jess 🙂

  14. This ice cream is gorgeous!! And I love that it is no-churn – I don’t have room for an ice cream maker in my apartment! I love watching Wimbledon – what a fun way to celebrate!

  15. Jess, this recipe is great. I am always on the lookout for new ice-cream recipes that do not require an ice-cream maker. Did you know that Starbucks is advertising a new strawberry shortbread crappie in Hong Kong? You are ages above the new hottest trends. Take Care, BAM
