This blackberry pie no churn ice cream is the best of two summer desserts and no ice cream maker required!

It’s not an easy decision to make to pick a favorite dessert. But I will never turn down a slice of pie, or a bowl of ice cream. And if those two things are combined? Well, I’m a goner. And there are two ways to make ice cream. I’m always a fan of the old fashioned way with an ice cream maker, but not a fan of the time with the limited patience I have. And there is the no churn ice cream way – much faster, just as creamy, egg free (for those who may have an allergy), and with minimal ingredients.

Our house is nestled in between two large parcels, and our neighbor has a half acre of treed land that separates our homes leaving us a great feeling of seclusion, even if we do live in the city limits. The best part is the height of summer blackberries that picking becomes a part of our daily routine. There is no shortage of my perfect blackberry pie. So the natural progression is to make this dessert with them, too!

There are two ways you can make this – either by just throwing a couple of slices of already-made blackberry pie into the vanilla base, or you can make it completely from scratch with a quick made blackberry jam, and baking a pie crust to crumble into the mix. For the full recipe the latter is the route took here.

What is no churn ice cream?

No churn ice cream has been a viral ice cream method because it doesn’t require a full blown ice cream maker to create. It utilizes heavy whipping cream, condensed milk, vanilla, and a pinch of salt. You can customize it with additional ingredients as well.

Ingredients to Make No Churn Ice Cream

  • Heavy Whipping Cream – I use heavy whipping cream because of the additional fat content that makes it creamier than standard whipping cream.
  • Condensed Milk – It adds the necessary sweetness to the mixture.
  • Vanilla – Use real vanilla for the best flavor
  • Salt – It adds a balance and depth to the sweetness in the recipe.
  • Corn Syrup – This helps reduce the ice crystal formation, keeping the final result creamy and not icy.
  • Blackberry Jam – Use jarred jam, or create a simple stovetop jam for this recipe.
  • Pie Crust – Roll out a premade pie crust and bake it. Add cooled crumbs to the mixture for the pie effect.

How to Make Blackberry Pie No Churn Ice Cream

  • To create the stove top blackberry jam – add 3 heaping cups of blackberries (fresh or frozen) to a saucepan. Add in 1/2 cup of sugar, and 1 tablespoon of regular powdered pectin. Bring the mixture to a boil and mash the berries. When the mixture begins to thicken, about about 2 minutes of rapid boiling, remove it from the heat and allow it to cool.
  • Remove a premade pie crust and allow it to come to room temperature. Slice the pie crust into strips and bake in an oven to 350, for about 12-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown. Allow it to cool completely and them crumble into large pieces to be mixed into the ice cream base. You can also make a single pie crust in a food processor!
  • Whip heavy cream – Whip the heavy cream until stiff peaks form.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the condensed milk, vanilla, salt, and corn syrup.
  • Fold the condensed milk mixture into the whipped cream until completely combined.
  • Into a loaf pan, pour in about 1/3 of the ice cream base. Top the ice cream base with several spoonfuls of the cooled blackberry jam mixture.
  • Using a spoon, swirl the jam into the mixture. And then top with a handful of pie crust crumbles.
  • Repeat this with the remaining mixture.
  • Place this into a freezer for at least 6 hours to chill. Then serve!
