No churn mocha almond fudge ice cream! Incredibly easy coffee ice cream recipe loaded with almonds and hot fudge swirls!When summer rolls around and you find that you’re consuming a lot of popsicles and ice cream, you might get the urge to buy an ice cream maker.

You figure instead of giving all of your money to DQ (guilty!) you should invest in something that allows you to make ice cream at home for a fraction of the cost.

But this next thing I am going to tell you is the best kitchen trick I’ve ever learned – followed by always keeping bananas in the freezer – ready?……

No churn mocha almond fudge ice cream! Incredibly easy coffee ice cream recipe loaded with almonds and hot fudge swirls!You don’t need an ice cream maker to make ice cream at home!!

Assuming you already have a metal mixing bowl, a can opener, a freezer, a loaf pan and an electric mixer you won’t need to buy anything fancy or special to make ice cream.

And don’t worry if you only have a hand mixer (that’s me! mixing by hand all day everyday!) – your hand mixer will be perfect! Plus I have this whole whipping heavy cream into stiff peaks down to a science.

I pour the heavy cream into the chilled metal bowl. Before I turn my hand mixer on I grab my phone and open instagram. Then I turn the hand mixer on and now I’m multitasking! Whipping and answering comments on social media.

This one woman show is hard work :)

-you’ll need to freeze this ice cream overnight

-we LOVED how coffee-y this ice cream was, definitely stronger than store bought coffee ice cream so adjust the amount of instant coffee accordingly

-to get almonds and fudge throughout the ice cream, I assembled in layers. Add ice cream to the pan loaf then almonds and hot fudge swirls, add more ice cream then almonds and hot fudge, etc.

I created this recipe in partnership with Diamond of California.

So simple and delicious and perfect for the summertime, especially for those of us who’ve yet to invest in an ice cream maker.

  8. Your photos are STUNNING!! And the ice cream flavor…well, love. Also: #greatminds…I’ve got a similar recipe tomorrow, lol. But I think I’d rather eat yours!

  9. Can I tell you that this is one of the most beautiful ice cream recipes I’ve seen! I’m smitten with this and can’t wait to give it a try. My old (OLD) hand mixer just died on me :( I’ll break out the big one for this!

  10. Wow this looks amazing! I love how short the ingredient list is. I need to try this recipe soon :D

  11. Wow this looks delicious! I love these flavours. Thanks for sharing.

  12. OMG! This ice cream sounds absolutely delicious and looks amazing. I haven’t experimented with making homemade ice cream but this recipe sounds easy :)

  13. This is incredible!! Can’t wait to try it!

  14. Aaaaaaaand, my mouth is watering! YUM! I need this this summer! 

  15. When I didn’t have an ice cream maker, I though having it would be an absolutely different story. I’ve been having it for a few years now, and I realized nothing has changed. Yes, this machine helps to save some time, but it doesn’t really influence the taste. You’ve got a delicious (not to mention beautiful) ice cream. Coffee, almonds, and fudge? Yes please! Well done Beth!

  16. Must update my shopping list NOW! What a great treat for the long weekend. One question, can any type of container be used for freezing final product, say a plastic ice cream pail? Yes I will probably be doubling the recipe :)

  17. How would instant espresso work instead of regular instant coffee?

  18. This is gorgeous! Love the styling.

  19. This looks so amazing!!! But I have a question! Any way this could be made dairy free? We have food allergies in my home, but this just looks so good!!!!

  20. Do you just add the dry coffee granules or dissolve it first?

  21. Did you mean coffee granules or dissolved(liquid)?

  22. This is my favorite flavor of ice cream. Can it be made with an electric ice cream maker?
