Olive Oil No-Churn Ice Cream

Olive oil is excellent paired with sweet milk and vanilla bean.

I love surprising guests with it for dessert and watch their furrowed brows relax after taking one bite, realizing it is, in fact, delicious.

This tastes amazing on warm Brownies, or served alongside Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Buttercream.

Ingredients

  • One 14 oz sweetened condensed milk 396 g]
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil [112 g]
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 vanilla bean seeds scraped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 oz cream cheese, at room temperature [57 g]
  • 2 cups heavy cream [480 g]

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, whisk the sweetened condensed milk, olive oil, vanilla, vanilla bean seeds, and salt until completely combined.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a whisk, beat the cream cheese on medium speed until smooth. Turn the mixer to low and add the heavy cream in a slow, steady stream, mixing until completely combined. Increase the speed to medium-high and whisk until stiff peaks form, 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Add half of the whipped cream mixture to the sweetened condensed milk mixture and whisk until completely combined. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold in the remaining whipped cream mixture until no streaks remain. Pour into a 9 in [23 cm] loaf pan or Pullman pan with a lid and freeze until firm, 6 hours or, covered, up to 1 week.

    Just discovering this now, perfect for summer weather that has finally arrived in Maine (along with a sore throat for me too). . .I’m wondering if you think this would work without a standing mixer. . . maybe a food processor to “whip” the cream or the old fashioned by hand way? I guess it’s worth a try. . . although a standing mixer is on my wish list 🙂
    Gorgeous design here, I totally have a blog crush.

      Hi Jenny! I’m not sure about a food processor, but a hand-held electric mixer would work, or the old fashioned way. 🙂 Let me know if you try it! And thanks so much for the kind words.

    I’ve been obsessed with olive oil laced desserts lately. I have a recipe I’ve been using for olive oil ice cream, and I think I should definitely add in vanilla bean now! And I like your suggestion, because olive oil goes really well with chocolate.

      I have been using olive oil a lot, too. It’s just so good in baked goods! And with chocolate! 🙂

    I don’t think it’s ever too cold to eat ice cream! I love it all year round and you’re right, there’s something so comforting about the cool creaminess of it. I’ve come to rely on my ice cream maker but thinking maybe I’ll go back to the old school and try a no churn recipe – I’m intrigued by the olive oil addition.

      I really like this no-churn recipe – it’s so creamy and good. ‘Real’ ice cream is somewhat better, but I haven’t missed it much since I started making this. And I think you’ll really like the olive oil!

    I think winter is the perfect time to post about ice cream! We probably eat/crave more of it in the winter months anyway. Thank you- this looks divine!

      Thanks Lauren. I do tend to crave ice cream in the winter, but I just thought it was because I’m addicted to sugar. 🙂 Also, the mild winter we are having here is giving me spring fever, so I’ve been eating ‘warmer weather’ foods.
