It’s a sweet, tasty sugar and milk combination from Latin America. Combine milk and sugar over heat until it’s rich and thick, and you have dulce de leche! Sometimes vanilla goes into the mix.

It’s not the same thing as caramel because caramel is made by combining sugar and water. Dulce de leche is made with milk and sugar instead. You can get it from the grocery store, perhaps in the Latin American aisle, or you can order it online.

The first thing you need to do is whip cream until you get soft peaks. This means the cream should leave a trail but stop before you get firm peaks that stand up by themselves.

Next up, sweetened condensed milk usually goes into the mix. However I used dulce de leche instead.

No churn ice cream doesn’t contain eggs like most churned ice cream recipes. Also, sweetened condensed milk (or dulce de leche!) replaces the sugar since those are sugar-rich.

Freeze this ice cream in a loaf pan or else in a shallow pan. In fact, the shallower and colder the container, the quicker the ice cream will freeze!

No Churn Matcha Dulce de Leche Ice Cream

By: Bella Bucchiotti
You will love the flavour of this no churn matcha dulce de leche ice cream. It’s a tasty green tea ice cream recipe using dulce de leche. It is so easy to make a matcha ice cream recipe without a machine, and it all starts with a tasty no churn ice cream recipe.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Freeze: 6 hours
Total Time: 6 hours 10 minutes
Servings: 6 Cups

Ingredients 

  • 2 Cup heavy cream, chilled
  • 3/4 Cup dulce de leche, store bought or home-made, chilled  
  • 2 Tbsp. matcha , powder 
  • 2 Tbsp. vanilla
  • 1 Tsp. salt

Topping

  • 4 Tbsp. Skor bits , toffee

Instructions 

  • In a large mixing bowl and using hand or stand mixer set to medium-high speed, whip the heavy cream for 3 to 4 minutes. 
  • When the cream starts to form very soft peaks (not enough to hold its shape), add the dulce de leche and continue whipping for another 3 minutes or until soft peaks form. The trails in the cream should be visible but with slightly softened peaks.  
  • Using a fine mesh sieve, sift the matcha powder into the whipped cream and dulce de leche mixture. Continue mixing with the mixer until medium peaks form. 
  • Add vanilla extract and salt and fold gently with spatula until thoroughly combined  
  • Pour ice cream mixture into loaf pan and smooth the top with the spatula. Cover with plastic wrap and chill in freezer for at least 6 hours (overnight preferred).  

Notes

Notes:  
  • re-chilling your mixing bowl, heavy cream, and dulce-de leche helps the whipped cream to form during the whipping process, and prevent it from melting/deflating quickly especially in the warmer weather.  
  • The optional toppings of Skor toffee bits give interesting and contrasting textures to the ice cream. Other toppings that would work beautifully for this recipe: white chocolate chips, chopped/slices nuts (i.e. almonds, cashews, or macademia), and cookie crumbles (i.e. Graham crackers, Biscoff, vanilla wafers). When using nuts, try to toast the nuts before using as the process of toasting brings out the flavour of the nuts themselves.  
  • This recipe calls for 9” x 5” x 3” loaf pan, however other sizes and other forms of pans (i.e. 9”x13”x2” cake pan) also work. A shallower pan will help the ice cream to cool faster. Any materials (ceramic, glass, or metal pans) will work.  
  • Store ice cream in airtight container in your freezer for up to 6 weeks.

    1. I usually buy dulce de leche readymade from the grocery store (which is why the recipe calls for that). However, if you want to make your own, you need to pour sweetened condensed milk in an oven-safe container and cover tightly with foil. Put it in a baking dish and pour water into the baking dish. Give it about 2 hours at 425°F, then cool to room temperature and proceed with the recipe. I have made it this way once but usually just buy dulce de leche readymade as it’s quicker and easier.
