Oreo Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Recipe

Key to Success #1 – Start with a Sweet Cream Custard Base

Yeah, the Oreo cookies are definitely the star of this ice cream recipe but hear me out … the flavor of the ice cream is pretty important in Cookies and Cream Ice Cream too. 

You can’t just take home-style vanilla ice cream and stir in some Oreo crumbs. 

The ice cream itself must be lighter and more like cream flavor than vanilla, if that makes sense. 

This sweet cream base is a perfect balance of subtle flavor, just like the center of an Oreo Cookie.

The secret to the perfect Cookies and Cream ice cream base is adding in a little sweetened condensed milk to the mixture. 

A full can of sweetened condensed milk is too much. 

You only need a half cup of sweetened condensed milk in this homemade Oreo ice cream recipe.

This is approximately half of a 14-ounce can of sweetened condensed milk. 

Whisk it in while you’re mixing up your ice cream base and before you freeze the mixture.

This is a no-cook custard-based ice cream recipe so you will just whisk all the ingredients together, starting with the whole eggs, not just the egg yolks. 

The sweetened condensed milk may be a little thick when you first pour it into the milk mixture but keep whisking and it will come together in a minute.

Key to Success #2 – Do Not Overfill the Ice Cream Maker

Every ice cream freezer is different so be sure to refer to the manufacturer’s directions for your unit to make sure your ice cream freezes properly. 

I have a Whynter Ice Cream Maker that makes fantastic homemade ice cream. 

One of the big advantages of this machine is that the bowl does not have to be frozen in advance. 

It has a compressor that does the freezing for you as the ice cream is churning.

My Whynter has a 1.5 liter capacity and I choose to divide this ice cream mix into two batches for freezing. 

In my experience with pretty much all ice cream makers, the final product turns out much better when the machine is not overfilled. 

Check your user’s manual for your machine to see if it can accommodate all the ice cream mixture at one time.

After the first batch finishes, I transfer the ice cream to a freezer-safe ice cream container and put it in my freezer to firm up while I churn the second batch. 

After the second batch finishes, I add the ice cream to the same ice cream container and give it all a gentle mix with my spoon. 

Now comes the hard part – waiting for the ice cream to firm up in the freezer. 

Personally, I like the ice cream just fine when it’s soft and freshly churned. 

But if you’ll give it a couple hours in the freezer, it’ll firm up into deliciously scoopable ice cream. 

Oh, and this is by far my favorite ice cream scoop.

Key to Success #3 – Mix In the Oreos at the Proper Time

When the ice cream starts to thicken up into a soft-serve consistency in the ice cream freezer, it’s time to add in the crushed cookies. 

Remember that if you’ve split the ice cream base into two batches, you’ll need to divide your Oreos into batches too. 

I crush a total of 12 Oreo cookies into crumbs. 

Since I freeze this ice cream recipe in two batches so I use six Oreos in each batch.

Place the Oreos into a plastic zip-top baggie and use a rolling pin or a heavy pan to pound the Oreos into fine crumbs. 

You want the Oreos to be as fine as possible, but it is not going to hurt anything if you have a few chunks in it. 

This is not one of those situations where you need to drag out the food processor to make sure the cookie crumbs are all perfectly pulverized. 

Just do your best to crush them up then add them to the ice cream machine. 

My ice cream maker has a mix-in spout that I can use to add in the cookie crumbs while the ice cream is still mixing. 

After the ice cream maker has completed its freezing process, it’s time to break up the remaining chunks of Oreos and mix them into the ice cream. 

I just use my fingers to break the cookies into small pieces since I’ve already added the cookie crumbs. 

Remove the ice cream to a freezer-safe container, then gently stir in the Oreo pieces to make sure they are evenly mixed in.

Homemade Oreo Cookies and Cream Ice Cream is a delicious treat that is perfect for any occasion. 

Whether you’re planning a birthday party, a summer BBQ or just a casual get-together with friends, this dessert is sure to impress your guests. 

One serving suggestion is to use the ice cream in an Oreo ice cream cake, which is made with layers of chocolate cake, Oreo cookies, and Cookies and Cream ice cream.

To make these, simply scoop a generous amount of the Oreo ice cream onto one Oreo cookie, and then place another Oreo cookie on top.

Another option is to serve the ice cream in ice cream cones, which is a classic way to enjoy this frozen treat.

  • In medium bowl, whisk whole eggs for 1-2 minutes until they light and fluffy. Slowly whisk in sugar until completely blended.
  • Add sweetened condensed milk and vanilla to the egg mixture. Whisk well.
  • Pour in cold heavy cream and milk and whisk to combine.
  • Follow instructions on your ice cream freezer to freeze ice cream. Depending on the capacity of your ice cream freezer, you may need to divide mixture into batches for freezing. Be sure to cover the other half with plastic wrap while the first batch is mixing.

Store frozen ice cream in an airtight container in the freeze for 2-3 months.
I recommend using regular Oreos in this easy recipe; however, you can substitute gluten-free Oreos or other 
Diabetic Substitutions:
