You can assemble this recipe in few minutes mixing the 3 ingredients togther and you'll get a creamy, rich and irresistible Ice Cream full of Nutella flavor!
The sweetened condensed milk is needful in this recipe to get a creamy Ice Cream that won't become hard in freezer, so you can't skip it, substitute with sugar, neither reduce it.

I topped my Ice Cream with a super quick and easy Nutella Topping made with only 2 ingredients: you only need to mix the ingredients together and it's ready!
The Ice Cream is ready after about 6 hours in the freezer, for this reason you can consider to prepare it the day before. If you live it in a hot climate, the ice cream will be ready to scoop just pop out from the freezer; if you live in a more cold climate, you only need to wait few minutes to scoop it perfectly.

Nutella Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich

This Nutella Ice Cream recipe is incredibly easy, you don’t need an ice cream machine and you can make it only with a hand mixer to whip the cream.

I whipped in two times: when I prepared the Ice Cream and after 1 hour in freezer. In this way the texture of the Ice Cream turns out perfect, very similar to an Ice Cream made in a ice cream maker. But you can skip this step: whip the cream only when you prepare the Nutella Ice Cream then transfer it in a freezer container and store it in freezer for 6 hours.

I suggest to NOT skip or reduce the amount of sweetened  condensed milk if you want to get a perfect creamy and scoopable ice cream.
