Ree Drummond has the easiest ice cream recipe that doesn’t require an ice cream maker. It comes together quickly and is then placed in the freezer to harden. ‘The Pioneer Woman’ star shared her simple tips for making this foolproof dessert.
Ree Drummond’s Chocolate Dream Ice Cream Recipe requires no buttering
Drummond demonstrated how to make her no-churn chocolate dream ice cream during an episode of The Pioneer Woman Dedicated to recipes for hot days.
The Food Network host whipped up whipped cream with powdered sugar and vanilla. Then Drummond folded himself lightly in a can of sweetened condensed milk.
“When I first made ice cream this way, I was absolutely shocked at how much it actually tasted like real ice cream whipped up in an ice cream maker,” she explained.
Drummond conceded, “I mean, it lacks a tiny bit of richness, but when you just want to make a quick batch of ice cream, it’s such a cool idea. And you can color the ice e.g. B. light blue, and add sprinkles. I made this once and called it mermaid ice cream.”
“The Pioneer Woman” prepared the dessert for the freezer
She poured half the mixture into another bowl. In one of the bowls she folded melted white chocolate and chunks of white chocolate. In the other bowl, she added semi-sweet melted chocolate, unsweetened cocoa powder, and chocolate chips. “The cream mixture is really, really sweet, so make sure it’s a pretty rich chocolate — milk chocolate would probably be a bit too sweet,” Drummond explained.
“And you don’t want to beat it to death, you want to fold it. Because if you whip it, the whipped cream you started it all with is going to… basically pop the bubbles,” she explained. “And I like to stop on the verge of mixing everything together.”
The Pioneer Woman Star poured some of each bowl’s mix into a glass bowl, then topped it with chocolate sandwich cookies, covered the container and placed it in the freezer to set.

Ree Drummond has a 10-minute no-churn ice cream recipe
If you’re looking for a chilled dessert idea that doesn’t require all that freezing time, Drummond has that covered too. Your quick and fruity ice cream recipe only takes 10 minutes to make.
“It’s ready in minutes and you’ll never forget you haven’t changed it for hours,” Drummond remarked on an episode of The Pioneer Woman.
She added frozen strawberries and mango to a food processor — though she shared you can add any frozen fruit you have on hand. Drummond added unsweetened Greek yogurt, heavy cream, and vanilla and turned on the food processor.
“It’s going to do all the hard work,” she explained. Drummond ran the food processor until the mixture broke into large chunks, then used a wooden spoon to break up the frozen fruit a little more. Drummond turned the food processor back on and blended until the mixture was the consistency of ice cream. “Oh god, that looks so good,” she said. “It’s beautiful and pink and billowy.”
She added chunks of dark chocolate to the ice cream and pulsed the mixture to break up the chunks. After placing the frozen dessert in a bowl, she grated chocolate over it. “You won’t believe how similar the ice looks,” she said.
