No-Churn Chocolate Pecan Ice Cream 

Prep Time: 10 minutes | Cook Time:



  • 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp espresso or cold brew coffee (Optional, but it increases the chocolatey flavor)
  • 2 cups heavy cream, chilled
  • 2 cups chopped pecans, divided


Stirring regularly, toast the pecans in a skillet over low heat until golden brown. It should take 1 to 2 minutes. Set aside and cool completely.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the condensed milk, cocoa powder, and espresso.

Whip the heavy cream until stiff peans form, about 2 minutes.

Fold the cream into the condensed milk mixture, then fold in 1 1/2 cups of the toasted pecans.

Spoon the mix into a loaf pan, then top with the remaining toasted pecans. Freeze until firm, about 6 hours.
