No Churn Cinnamon Snickerdoodle Ice Cream-creamy cinnamon ice cream with snickerdoodle cookie pieces. This easy ice cream recipe is my all-time favorite! You won’t believe it is made without an ice cream maker!
When we went to San Francisco, I fell in love with Bi-Rite Creamery’s ricanelas ice cream. It is seriously the BEST! You may be wondering what in the world is ricanelas. I had to ask when I saw it on the menu and I am so glad I did because it is cinnamon ice cream with snickerdoodle cookie pieces. Dreamy, right? You better believe I got a scoop! My only regret is that I didn’t get a triple scoop! It was SO good! I told Josh we HAD to recreate this ice cream at home so I could eat it all summer long.
Well, I didn’t stop thinking about the ice cream after our trip. My brain tends to think about desserts a lot:) So, we got to work and recreated Bi-Rite’s ricanelas ice cream. I am not sure how they make it, but we came up with a No Churn Cinnamon Snickerdoodle Ice Cream recipe that is pure perfection. On a scale from 1-10, it is a 5,879! Yep, it is off the charts good! And the best part? It is SO easy! You don’t even need an ice cream maker to make this ice cream!
If you haven’t tried no churn ice cream yet, you NEED to. It is beyond easy and the ice cream is super creamy. I was skeptical when we first tried it, but it is the real deal. I am currently obsessed. I love our ice cream maker, but sometimes it is nice to take the easy route, especially when the results are amazing!
To make no churn ice cream, you need sweetened condensed milk and heavy cream. Whip the cream to form stiff peaks and fold the whipped cream into the sweetened condensed milk. So easy and the flavor options are endless. I added cinnamon, vanilla, and snickerdoodle cookie pieces to recreate my favorite ice cream flavor.
I baked my favorite snickerdoodle cookies and chopped them up. They are SO good! Make sure the cookies are cooled completely before adding them to the ice cream.
Pour the ice cream into a loaf pan or container. I added a few extra cookie pieces to the top and a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar. I wanted the ice cream to be pretty! 🙂 Freeze until solid, about 6 hours and then scoop away!
I was nervous our ice cream creation wouldn’t taste as good as Bi-Rite’s, but guess what? It is just as good…maybe even better! After every bite, I kept telling Josh that it really does taste like it! I couldn’t believe it! I think he got sick of me saying how good it was over and over, but I was beyond pleased with our ice cream results!
This No Churn Cinnamon Snickerdoodle Ice Cream is perfection. Our freezer is going to be stocked with this ice cream for the rest of the summer. I will probably have to make it a million times because I know I will be eating it every day. I don’t mind though, it’s easy to make and eating ice cream every day in the summer is kind of a given. Plus, July is National Ice Cream Month so I have to celebrate daily:)

I’ve NEVER made no churn ice cream, but with the promise of Snickerdoodle goodness I am MOST definitely willing to give ‘er a try! This sounds perfect for these insanely hot days! Pinned!
You have to try it! Thanks for pinning!
Oh my goodness – delicious! I’m always a fan of mix-ins for ice cream, and sometimes, I go overboard! But this ice cream looks absolutely amazing!! Great recipe!
I am a big fan of mix-ins too! Cookies are always a safe choice:)
No churn is the best!! I love the flavor of this, too!
Such a creamy combination of classics! I look forward to making it with my girls!
I hope your girls like it! Enjoy!
Snickerdoodle is my fav! And this no-churn is a must make!
Gimme!!! Looks fabulous girl!
Love cinnamon in my ice cream! Making this for sure!
Me too and the cookies take it over the top! I hope you like it!
Ricanelas is definitely one of my top flavors! Your version looks delicious!
It is SO good!
A perfect way to celebrate National Ice Cream Month! Reminds me of “That’s How I Roll” from Cold Stone; one of my favorites! Looks delicious, Maria!
I haven’t tried that ice cream! I need to:)
Perfect for summer BBQ’s …. my guests will love this ice cream!
Holy Cow this looks delicious!!
Hmmmm I’ve never tried no churn ice cream before but I did grab some sweetened condensed milk on sale the other day. Must have been fate 😉
love it!! can’t wait to try 😀
That 2 ingredient ice cream is the best. And so easy to do! Too funny that you just made this, I just picked up half a gallon of Snickerdoodle Ice Cream at the grocery store because it was intriguing me. Love that you just recreated the same thing!!!
Well it definitely looks amazing! What a perfect summer treat!!
I cant decide if I like the cookie flavor part or that this is no churn most of all?! It’s the best of everything Maria!
You had me at no churn, Maria, but snickerdoodles, which I LOVE is the maybe the best part!
Ricanelas = dreamy. For sure!
Cinnamon ice cream is my all time favorite! Adding snickerdoodle cookie pieces sounds amazing!!!!
If I were to add the optional cinnamon sugar to the ice cream how much would you recommend that I add?
I just sprinkle a little cinnamon sugar over the top of the ice cream in the container to make it look pretty, probably 2 teaspoons.
Thought you would get a kick out of this.
I made this recipe, my husband had some in the evening and loved it. The next day he texted me during work asking if I could throw this away because he would eat too much of it and wanted to eat healthy. Hilarious!! I told him I would hide it in the freezer but then he said he is good at hide and seek :). Don’t worry we didn’t throw it away. I’ll be featuring this on my blog when it goes live but will credit you.
Ha! Love it! I am so glad he liked the ice cream!
Loving this no churn flavor! I cannot recall the last time I actually used my ice cream machine since learning how to do no-churn.
I don’t have a stand mixer. Can I make this with a hand mixer?
This looks so delicious, but I don’t know how to actually have leftover snickerdoodle cookies when I make them… >.< must. have.self.control. Or more like my husband needs some self control.
Could this be made with gingersnaps instead of snickerdoodles?
