McDonald's McFlurry and a homemade version

Love a McDonald’s McFlurry for dessert? If so, listen up!

Here’s a way to make a very similar DIY version at home using just a few simple ingredients with just 10 minutes or less of hands-on prep time. My kids personally love M&M’s flavored McFlurries and since we are staying at home, this is a yummy way to re-create the fast-food version without an ice cream maker and with minimal ingredients!

No churn homemade ice cream is the answer!

This method of making homemade ice cream is so easy and fun to do! It just involves whipping 2 main ingredients together – heavy whipping cream and sweetened condensed milk.

Adding some air to the cream will make it extra fluffy when frozen, and the condensed milk will give it great texture and a sweet flavor.

Essentially, the rest of the ingredients are up to you! I added vanilla extract and mini M&M’s as yummy add-ins to make my copycat McFlurry, but you can, of course, add in Oreos or create another fun ice cream flavor you’d like. Once frozen, you’ll get a delicious creamy ice cream treat the whole family will love!

If you’re a visual learner, Stetson actually made this fun YouTube video below showing how he easily made an Oreo McFlurry at home:

Hip Recipe Tips: 

    • It’s recommended to use a metal loaf pan when making no-churn ice cream as metal makes it freeze faster, but since I don’t have one, I used a metal pie pan instead and it seemed to work fine!
    • Hold back some of the mini M&M’s to add to the top, as some will sink. I waited for about an hour after setting my ice cream in the freezer and added more to the top and pressed them in.
    • You could even flavor the sweetened condensed milk with this Frappe Mix for a coffee-flavored McFlurry!
    • A full can of sweetened condensed milk is 14 oz. and I actually held back a little and did about 10 oz. Most recipes use the full can, but I felt like it was sweet enough using 10 oz. Test the sweetness level yourself and sweeten to taste.

This DIY version is even better tasting than a real McFlurry!

Yep, we all agreed this no-churn copycat version tastes amazing, and is even better than the McDonald’s version in our opinion! My daughter was saying how fluffy and yummy this is.

I am looking forward to trying some other flavors this summer using this same method. Enjoy!

  1. J. Sweet.

    thanks for the tip on the 10 ounces vs the full can…I have done this recipe only once and I would agree that the full can was too much…I will have to try again with less! 🙂

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh good yes, I would add it to taste! Thanks for stopping by 😊

  2. meredithjoanna79

    Anything that has sweetened condensed milk for a ingredient in it is going to be wicked good. (As we would say in Boston.)

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Ha I agree! 💝 Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Sue

    This was fantastic and not too sweet! Thank you for the recipe, I was just what we needed since we don’t have a McDonald’s near by

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh nice – thanks for sharing your feedback Sue!

    • Ashlie

      Well, even if you had a McDonald’s nearby, their machine would probably be broken more often than not ;-D

      • Holly@25

        Lol so true

  4. Pat

    Sweetened condensed milk? That is a lot of sugar!

    • Mel

      If you’re worried about the sugar, you can make a low carb/keto friendly sweetened condensed milk from scratch. There’s a few different recipes out there. The one I make uses heavy cream, butter, Swerve Confectioners Sugar and vanilla.

  5. Wren

    We are trying this today, just did a full can of sweet cond milk and added about an extra cup of cream to balance it out. 👍

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh smart!

    • Wren

      We made it that day and my husband said it’s now his favorite ice cream. 😳 My daughter loved it too.

      • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

        Oh ha! Awesome 👏

  6. Jen

    Has anyone tried a recipe like this in an icecream maker?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes this would work also in an ice cream maker! I want to try it in mine next!

    • Michelle

      We’ve used this in our ice cream maker and it is my favorite recipe! Not as heavy as some custard recipes with the ice cream maker.
