Just when I thought ice cream can not get any better, came this Tahini Chocolate Ice-cream. This no charm, 4 ingredients 5 minutes recipe is the creamiest, most flavorful, and comforting ice-cream ever.
The fact that Tahini is a staple pantry ingredient these days is something I could not be happier about. Why? because for me, a chocolate spread sandwich generously sprinkled with Halva (sweetened Tahini crumbles) was my everyday school lunch.
What can I say? I was a picky eater with a very strong sweet tooth! Still am.
And now that no churn ice-cream has taken over summer, this recipe was only natural to happen.
On a side note, since Tahini is a paste made of ground sesame seeds it is naturally packed with plant-based fat and is a great source of iron.
What Ingredients Are In The Ice Cream:
- Sweetened Condensed Milk
- Tahini, you can use your favorite brand, however, make sure it is unsweetened and/or is not flavored. I used Trader Joe’s brand, it has enough to make the recipe twice.
- Heavy Whipping Cream, if you are familiar with a Heavy Cream brand and know that it will whip just as good, feel free to use either one.
- Dark chocolate melted, dark or semi-sweet are a great companion to the sweet condensed milk.
How To Make This Tahini Chocolate Ice Cream Ice Cream:
Making this recipe is as easy as it is delicious. Firstly, we will whip the heavy cream into a stiff cream.
Please remember to turn the mixer off the second you notice a stiff cream has formed. Otherwise the cream will deflate it and result in a big liquid mess.
Next we will mix the Tahini with the sweetened condensed milk and then we will fold in the whipped cream.
Lastly, we will pour the mix into our dish and drizzle the chocolate on top.
That is it. The hardest part is now waiting 6-8 hours for the ice cream to form up.
Storing and Serving The Ice Cream:
Well, as it is ice-cream the obvious storage place would be the freezer. Please make sure to cover the ice-cream with a plastic wrap as it contains a high fat level which means it absorbs other flavors.
Make sure to remove the ice cream from the freezer about 10-15 minutes (depending on the amount in the container) before eating. The ice-cream is best when is has softened bit.
Few More Notes and Tips about this Tahini Chocolate Ice-cream Recipe:
- Feel free to use your preferred container, I choice a wide one so there is more surface to drizzle the melted chocolate.
- You can go a head and sprinkle some shredded Halva on top or even mix it with the ice-cream after folding in the whipped cream.

This recipe is really easy to follow and it turned out amazing! The tahini really adds great flavour! Will def make this again, it was a hit in my family 🙂
So happy to hear you loved it Anum!! thank you so much!
This recipe looks amazing! I know the majority of no-churn ice cream recipes ask for sweetened condensed milk (creaminess and prevents icy texture). I am not too keen on condensed milk so I was wondering if you had a substitute idea. Would swapping it in for cream cheese work, although thicker in texture?
I am not aware of a sweetened condensed milk substitute and I would not use cream cheese as a replacement as cream cheese is 55% water which means it will get that icy texture. What you can do is mix coconut milk with 3/4 cup sugar (or maple syrup/honey) and reduce the liquid so you will only have fat and coconut solids in it. That should work in theory but I have yet to try it. Also, keep in mind that coconut has a strong flavor so you might want to increase the tahini amount by a 1/4 cup.
