If you’re a regular reader of my blog then you’ll know by now how much I like no-churn ice cream recipes? A few summers back I received an ice cream maker as a birthday gift. Long story cut short, the ice cream maker was absolutely terrible as it required tonnes of costly ingredients and I ended up with a mere four scoops at the very most after all my hard work. Certainly not enough to serve to my ice cream loving family!

So I ditched the ice cream machine and started researching some recipes that didn’t require the use of a machine. Eventually I came by a no-churn method. Simply requiring just two ingredients {cream and condensed milk} and a few additional ingredients such as vanilla extract, cocoa powder and spreads such as Nutella. I was super excited to start trying out different flavours for the blog. Of which I have a recipe for 4-ingredient Nutella ice cream you MUST also try!

What I like about no-churn ice cream is how quick it is to make – that is minus the freezing time, which is the only negative I can think of! If you wanted to make a classic vanilla ice cream all you simply have to do is whip your cream with the vanilla until soft peaks form and mix together with the condensed milk. Transfer the mixture to a freeze-able container and pop into the freezer. Then you can scoop and enjoy! It’s my new favourite way of making ice cream!

So moving onto today’s recipe. I’m sharing this amazingly delicious Speculoos Cookie Butter Ice Cream. It’s probably one of my best ice cream creations to date. Creamy, silky and with cookie butter and spiced cookies in each spoonful! It’s just as good {maybe even better} than eating the cookie butter straight from the jar. < I’m 100% guilty of doing that! My self-control goes out the window when there’s cookie butter involved!

Every time I visit the supermarket lately I’ve been seeing Speculoos ice cream in the freezer section. I think I’ve lost count of the amount of times I have had to resist reaching and grabbing a tub of ice cream during the grocery shopping! So I came home and found the half eaten jar of Speculoos at the back of my kitchen cupboard and preceeded to make some of the most amazing ice cream!

It’s creamy, sweet and just so addictive. We enjoyed this ice cream for dessert over the past week and it went down a treat. I just wished I had more in my freezer ready for my next speculoos craving!
