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 :)

No churn mocha almond fudge ice cream! Incredibly easy coffee ice cream recipe loaded with almonds and hot fudge swirls!Beth’s tips for making no churn mocha almond fudge ice cream

-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.

  1. No churn ice cream changed my life last summer! And I’m thrilled that you’re a huge fan of it too. So simple and delicious and perfect for the summertime, especially for those of us who’ve yet to invest in an ice cream maker. I love the combination of coffee and fudge in this ice cream – it sounds decadent and oh-so-good!  

    1. This truly was delicious. Definitely needs to freeze overnight sets up even nicer after the second day…..For a nice savory dimension, I sprinkled just a few shards of kosher salt over my scoop, really nice!

  2. What a beautiful dish of ice cream!  No churn is the best… and I LOVE ALMONDS… so this is a winner all-around!~

  3. This mocha almond fudge ice cream looks amazing! Love the coffee and chocolate flavors together :)

  4. Mocha Almond Fudge has always been one of my favorite flavors.  What an amazing looking batch of ice cream!

  5. Are you sure this is how you make ice cream? No ice cream salt needed!? This is wonderful. I will make this with the kiddos this weekend!

  6. What a great flavor for ice cream.  I want to eat it all summer long!  And I love that you don’t need an ice cream maker!

  7. 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!

  8. 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!

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