There are some recipes that just sound good when you hear the title or list of ingredients. Anything that has nutella in it is bound to be tasty but when I saw a recipe Nutella Ice Cream over at Sugarlaws, I knew I had to make it. So with more milk and cream than I had ever used before in one recipe and my brand new lovely Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker, I made the easiest, most delicious ice cream I’ve ever had. Ever. I don’t claim that phrase to a many recipes but I think this ice cream recipe deserves it. Its _________ (insert multiple synonyms for the word “delicious”) and so simple if you have an ice cream machine.
Now if Nutella Ice Cream wasn’t enough to make you swoon, I’m also hosting a giveaway! My second one because the first one was so much fun.

Good luck!
Now onto that Nutella Ice Cream…
Taste: The sweet combination of chocolate and hazelnut that is Nutella is absolutely positively delicious.
Texture: Nutella is heavenly on its own but when it is refreshingly cool and indulgently smooth and creamy it turns into a dessert that I can confidently say is better than most I’ve had in my life.
Ease: If you have a working ice cream machine this is super simple. Just mix the ingredients together, pour into bowl of machine, turn on and then let freeze until the consistency is right. You don’t even have to turn on the stove or oven.
Appearance: Scoops of ice cream will always look appetizing.
Pros: Super easy, amazingly delicious, perfect for summer.
Cons: Nutella ice cream definitely isn’t the healthiest treat in the world but is SO worth it on special occasions.
Would I make this again? YES.
- 1/3 cup nutella
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1 cup milk
- 1 tbsp vodka
1. Beat together the nutella, sugar, heavy cream, milk and vodka until blended evenly.
2. Churn into ice cream according to your ice cream machine’s directions, and then freeze for four hours before serving. The ice cream lasts about a week in the freezer.
Makes about 2 cups.
