Ingredients for White Chocolate Raspberry Ice Cream
You’ll love how easy it is to make this delicious raspberry swirl ice cream with white chocolate and cookie chunks! Here are the main ingredients you’ll need to make it at home:
- Raspberries: use fresh or frozen berries for making this ice cream. You’ll need raspberries for making the tart raspberry sauce and for adding whole berries into the ice cream itself. If you’re using frozen berries, there’s no need to thaw them.
- White Chocolate Chips: for making the ice cream base and for adding into the ice cream! This recipe has double the chocolate! You can also use a white chocolate bar broken into chunks for topping the ice cream.
- Sweetened Condensed Milk: for making the ice cream base.
- Heavy Cream: use well chilled cream for making the whipped cream. The whipped cream is what gives this no-churn ice cream its volume.
- Confectioner’s Sugar: for making the whipped cream.
- Cookies: I use vanilla wafers but other vanilla cookies will work. Even vanilla Oreos!
- More Raspberries: use fresh raspberries for garnishing the top of the ice cream. This will make the ice cream look extra fancy!
Making the Raspberry Sauce
This raspberry swirl ice cream is layered and swirled with the most delicious, tart and sweet raspberry sauce! To make this easy sauce, simply combine 2 cups of fresh or frozen berries with sugar in a saucepan. Crush the berries until a sauce forms, then let it simmer away for 8 to 10 minutes. Pour the prepared sauce into a fine mesh strainer set up over a large bowl. Press the juice into the bowl, leaving just the seeds behind. This seedless raspberry sauce is the perfect addition to this berry ice cream! You’ll love the tart flavor of the sauce with the sweet white chocolate ice cream!
How to Make White Chocolate Raspberry Ice Cream
The secret to making the best no-churn ice cream is to use whipped cream!
- First, prepare the white chocolate and raspberry base. This base is a combination of sweetened condensed milk, melted white chocolate and crushed raspberries.
- In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the chilled heavy cream with vanilla and raspberry extract and confectioner’s sugar. You want the whipped cream to have fluffy, stiff peaks!
- Carefully fold together the ice cream base with the whipped cream, keeping the cream as fluffy as possible!
- Next, gently fold in the fillings: white chocolate chips, crushed vanilla wafers and more berries!
- Assemble the ice cream into a loaf pan or into a casserole tray. In between layers of raspberry ice cream, add spoonfuls of the prepared raspberry sauce and swirl it in. Garnish the top with more sauce, more berries, more cookies and more chocolate chips!
How to Freeze No-Churn Ice Cream
Once you have the ice cream assembled, it’s time for the freezer! Place the white chocolate raspberry ice cream on a flat surface in your freezer and let it freezer for at least 6 hours. After 6 hours, the ice cream will be the texture of soft serve ice cream. Freeze the ice cream for 24 hours or overnight for the ice cream to be more firmly set. Enjoy it with more raspberry sauce and waffle cones.

White Chocolate Raspberry Ice Cream (video)
For Raspberry Sauce:
- 2 cups raspberries, fresh or frozen, thawed
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
For Ice Cream:
- 1/2 cup white chocolate chips, melted
- 1 cup sweetened condensed milk
- 1 cup raspberries, fresh or frozen, thawed
- 2 cups heavy cream, chilled
- 1 tsp EACH: raspberry extract, vanilla extract
- 1 cup confectioner’s sugar
- 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
- 1 to 2 cups crushed vanilla wafers or cookies
- 1 cup fresh raspberries
Making the Raspberry Sauce:
- Prepare the raspberry sauce first. Place the 2 cups berries with 1/2 cup sugar into a medium saucepan. Using a potato masher or a large fork, crush the berries until they are completely broken up and a sauce forms. Bring the sauce to a simmer over medium heat and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes on low heat until the sauce is thickened. Pour the sauce into a fine mesh strainer set up over a clean mixing bowl. Use the back of a spoon or spatula to press the raspberry juice through the strainer, leaving just the seeds. Discard the seeds and set the raspberry sauce aside for later.
Making the Ice Cream:
- Next, prepare the ice cream base. Melt 1/2 cup white chocolate chips and pour the melted chocolate into a large mixing bowl. Don’t wait for the chocolate to cool! Add the sweetened condensed milk and whisk for about 1 minute, until the mixture is smooth. Add in 1 cup fresh or frozen (thawed!) raspberries into the mixture and crush the berries using a large fork. Watch my video recipe to see how it’s done.
- Into a separate mixing bowl, pour in the chilled heavy cream and add the vanilla extract, raspberry extract and confectioner’s sugar. Whisk the heavy cream on medium to high speed for 3 to 4 minutes, until stiff peaks form. Add the whipped cream into the white chocolate ice cream base. Using a spatula, gently fold together the base with the whipped cream, keeping the cream as light and fluffy as possible.
Assembling the Ice Cream:
- Next, add in approximately 1/2 cup whole berries, 1/4 to 1/2 cup white chocolate chips and 1 cup crushed vanilla wafers. Fold these fillings gently into the ice cream using a spatula. To assemble the ice cream, use a metal or glass bread loaf pan. Add a layer of ice cream into the pan, then add a few teaspoons of the prepared raspberry sauce on top and swirl it in using a knife or spoon. Repeat this process 3 to 4 times, adding raspberry sauce between each layer.
- Garnish the top of the ice cream with more chocolate chips, cookie bits and fresh berries. Place the ice cream into the freezer and let it chill for a minimum of 6 hours. After 6 hours, the ice cream will be the texture of soft serve ice cream. Freeze the ice cream for 24 hours or overnight for the ice cream to be more firmly set. Enjoy it with more raspberry sauce and waffle cones.
