Butter Pecan Ice Cream

This homemade butter pecan ice cream is made without an ice cream machine. This ice cream recipe is another one of my favorite no cook, no churn ice cream recipes.

I don’t use any eggs in this butter pecan ice cream recipe. In fact, the main ingredients I use for the ice cream base are whipped cream and sweetened condensed milk.

To the base, I add buttery pecans coated in a light brown sugar glaze and vanilla which provide a sweet and plentiful crunch.

This butter pecan ice cream is super rich and is so much better than store-bought versions.

  1. YUM! One of my favorite flavors of ice cream is butter pecan so I would love to make this. Can’t wait to try it soon!

  2. Oh my GOODNESS. This ice cream is swoon-worthy, and I love that you made it no churn, too! We don’t have an ice cream maker — probably a good thing since I’d get myself in trouble if we did — and I love whipping up an easy no churn recipe during a hot day. Definitely gonna have this one on hand since we all love Butter Pecan!

  3. I love butter pecan ice cream! And I agree- you don’t need an ice cream maker to make smooth, creamy homemade ice cream. 🙂 I haven’t used my ice cream maker in years! I always make no-churn versions. Can’t wait to try this one soon!

  4. My family loves butter pecan ice cream too. It is really so addictive and no matter how much I love unique flavors, I adore this particular classic. I’ve never considered making it before though. This no churn version is just irresistible!
