I’ve really outdone myself this time. If you know me, you know that my absolute weakness is ice cream. I can eat it on a hot or cold day; or if I’m super happy or super sad. Well, I finally tried out making it myself (with no ice cream maker)…and OMG. I present to you: No-Churn Cookies & Cream Ice Cream!
Cookies & Cream is my go-to flavor; so of course, I had to try this for my first time making some homemade. And let me be the first to say, I don’t like when I have to search for an Oreo within my scoops. So when you chop up your cookies (I used a knife), make some of them really small and leave some as big chunks. That way, you’ll get the true cookies & cream experience in every bite.
All you need is a stand mixer or hand mixer to whip up the heavy whipping cream mixture until stiff peaks form. Stir in the sweetened condensed milk, until fully combined. Then stir in your Oreo pieces. I poured mine into a loaf pan because it’s just deep/wide enough for making ice cream.
The absolute hardest part of this recipe is waiting for it to freeze. I kept wanting to check on it (read: start eating it) but I held on strong… and boy is this stuff worth the wait!
Y’all really are about to get sick of me this summer, because now that I know how easy it is to make ice cream – it’s over with! I’m making frozen desserts for the next three months. Let me know, what are your favorite flavors that you want to see on the blog?
Until then, I’m making this No-Churn Cookies & Cream Ice Cream for our Memorial Day BBQ, and you definitely should too!
