Nutella Ice Cream (No Cook, Egg Free)


No-Cook Egg-Free Nutella Ice Cream

Labor Day may mark the end of summer, but it does not mark the end of ice cream season. Every season is ice cream season (even winter). Since my Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream was such a huge hit this summer, I wanted to share another variation I love, perhaps even more than peanut butter cup: No-Cook Egg-Free Nutella Ice Cream. Yes, your favorite easy ice cream recipe can be made with that irresistible chocolate hazelnut spread we have come to know and love. Want to know how easy? You throw your ingredients into a blender then freeze. You don’t even need an ice cream maker. Can ice cream get any easier? No, it can not, which is why you need to make this Nutella Ice Cream now.


No-Cook Egg-Free Nutella Ice Cream

I remember my first spoonful. I was studying abroad in Ireland when one of my housemates shared her jar of Nutella. Where has it been all my life?! I originally thought it was strictly a European product, so you can imagine how wide my eyes lit up when I found out how common it is in the US. It’s such a huge craze that I’ve seen regular jars, small jars, mini to-go packets, jars as big as your head. Companies have been trying to imitate Nutella, but it just isn’t the same. Nutella is Nutella. When people ask me what Nutella is, I tell them it’s just like peanut butter but it’s hazelnuts with chocolate instead of peanuts. It’s used the same way as peanut butter – on sandwiches, with a spoon, in cookies, in frosting, with a spoon. Pretty much you consume Nutella with a spoon, but it’s more fun in ice cream ;)


No-Cook Egg-Free Nutella Ice Cream

You may recognize this ice cream back during #icecreamweek when I shared my Nutella Espresso Hot Fudge Sauce. Although I briefly shared the ice cream, I wanted this recipe to have the spotlight in its own post. It’s just that good (and easy to make!). It may look like innocent chocolate ice cream, but it tastes just like Nutella. Boost up the Nutella flavor by pouring the hot fudge sauce on top.

  1. I agree, Nutella hand down beats all the others that try to imitate. This ice cream would be almost as dangerous to me as the open jar. Cold and creamy version…just give me a giant spoon!

  2. I can’t say I’ll be craving ice cream when New York is covered in snow but that’s not for another few months. So, I still have plenty of time to eat this ice cream!

  3. Saved! I’ll be trying this next weekend. Thanks! =o)
