Salted Caramel Ice Cream – No Churn

Jump to Recipe

Sweet, creamy, smooth caramel ice cream with a salty kick – salted caramel anything is always a winner with my husband. This ice cream was a massive favourite for Andrew although Charlotte put in a strong argument for it being her favourite too. We were somewhat spoilt yesterday with 6 to choose from!

This is perhaps the easiest of the 6 ice creams as it uses pre-prepared caramel. It is made in exactly the same way as with condensed milk although the proportion of cream is slightly lower. This ensures the salted caramel flavour comes shining through and is not too diluted.

This recipe is adapted from my No Churn Ice Cream – Core Recipe. For other easy ice cream ideas, take a look. However the original Salted Caramel Ice Cream recipe is very slightly adapted from Nigella Lawson. Take a look at her website – it is truly fantastic and one I return to again and again.

How to make Salted Caramel Ice Cream – No Churn

Collect all your ingredients together:

  • tin of caramel
  • salt
  • double cream
  • sea salt flakes

Simply whisk the salt into the caramel, add the double cream and whip until thickened. Pour into a freezer proof container. Cover with baking parchment, seal with a lid and freeze for a minimum of 6 hours. Voila!

NB I always add a tiny bit of salt to my ice cream– it really helps to enhance all the flavours. However, I have doubled the amount in this recipe to ¼ teaspoon. I tend to add a little more than that actually but it is down to personal taste – I recommend adding a ¼, try it and then decide for yourself. Do remember though:

  • the salty flavour will be slightly reduced when you have frozen the ice cream,
  • you can add some extra flakes of sea salt when you serve the ice cream.

Also, please note that when I photographed this, I made 6 ice creams in a day and halved the ingredients for each ice cream and this is reflected in the photographs – there is only so much we can eat! Therefore, the quantities you make using the recipe below will be double that shown.

A few hours later!
