Best No-Churn Cookies + Cream Ice Cream. Literally a true statement for this recipe.

This recipe is definitely something special to me because I LOVED Oreos growing up. Honestly, I still indulge in a pack of these little chocolate sandwiches ever so often.

I literally have to be intentional about not adding a pack of these to my cart. Haha.

However, I did treat myself to a full fledge Ice Cream machine recently, therefore, I’m excited to give it a try very soon. Honestly, it looks kind of intimidating because it’s my first try at it, but I’ll live to tell you guys what I think soon. Haha.

Not only are these little bites the perfect size, but they come fully packed with a beautifully tasty oreo cookie crust and a decadent oreo filling, topped with whipped cream and a full oreo cookie for extra goodness. Can we just say that it’s an oreo overload?

What Does No-Churn Mean Anyway?

While many people might be familiar with the term “No-Churn”, many still aren’t. Basically, it means that there isn’t a need for an Ice Cream machine in order for it to come out creamy within a few hours.

Unlike traditional Ice cream recipes which require an egg based custard that is carefully cooked and formulated to ensure that things come together nicely, No-Churn recipes skip the work and stress of it all.

Common FAQs About No-Churn Ice Cream.

Can I make Dairy-Free No-Churn Ice Cream? Yup, definitely! I’ve heard that people have used avocados and coconut milk to make their creamy base. While I haven’t personally tried it, I have seen some really great recipes!

How Long Does Homemade Ice Cream Last? Honestly, homemade ice cream can last for a little while, somewhere close to 2 weeks.

Are There Any Tips or Hacks for Making the Perfect No-Churn Ice Cream? Yup. It always starts with getting the right ingredients. Firstly, it’s about getting quality ingredients for the best results and more importantly, it’s about getting the EXACT ingredients listed and not substituting.

Also, if you’re trying to make different flavors and decide on using other extracts, be sure to start by adding small amounts first. Lastly, always ensure that anything that will be folded in is chopped and prepped beforehand. That means any chocolate, nuts, etc. should be chopped and easy to fold in.

Now, let’s dig right into this recipe–-shall we?

In the bowl of an electric mixer on medium-high speed, whip together the heavy cream and vanilla until stiff peaks form.

Now, fold in the sweetened condensed milk and sea salt into the whipped cream. Next, add in the Oreos and fold until fully incorporated.

Immediately pour mixture into a 9×5 loaf pan (or small metal bowl) and freeze for 6-8 hours. 

To serve, remove from freezer and let sit for a couple of minutes to soften slightly and enjoy on a cone or in a dessert bowl.

Bon Appetit!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups organic heavy whipping cream (I use Organic Valley)
  • 1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk, low-fat (I use Eagle's Brand)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1 package Oreo cookies (See Notes!)

Instructions

  • In the bowl of an electric mixer on medium-high speed, whip together the heavy cream and vanilla until stiff peaks form.
  • Now, fold in the sweetened condensed milk and sea salt into the whipped cream. Next, add in the Oreos and fold until fully incorporated.
  • Immediately pour mixture into a 9×5 loaf pan (or small metal bowl) and freeze for 6-8 hours. 
  • To serve, remove from freezer and let sit for a couple of minutes to soften slightly and enjoy on a cone or in a dessert bowl.
  • Bon Appetit!

Tips & Tricks

OREO COOKIE: To incorporate cookies, simply crush an entire row and half of Oreos in a medium bowl and fold into ice cream mixture. To top the ice cream mixture after placing in a loaf pan, separate each cookie and scrape off the filling so that only the cookie itself is being used. You’ll need approximately 2 rows of Oreo cookies or so to achieve the entire recipe, about 18-20 cookies.
STORAGE: When kept in an air-tight container, ice cream lasts for about 2 weeks.
