I have a love/hate relationship with Oreos. It might be because I eat a lot of this type of cookie, like a lot a lot, till my stomach can’t take it anymore! And then I have to take a break, thinking: this is it, no more Oreos for me. But then the craving hits me, I need Oreos back in my life…

We were at a friend’s birthday party and they had Oreo mousse for dessert. Guess what? I loved it! A little bit too sweet, but then again, I couldn’t stop eating it, to the point I got sick to my stomach of the amount I ate. Crazy, right?

And then I thought, if the mousse is this good, how it will be in the form of ice cream? The only way to find out is by making some, right? Right!

Ice cream can sometimes be too scary, but there is a base of an ice cream recipe that you don’t need any fancy machine to make. You don’t even need to mix it every 30min/1h. The key is in the whipped cream: it has all the air, and other things, that the Oreo ice cream needs to be perfect!


Oreo Ice Cream Ingredients

  • 1 can of condensed milk
  • 3 cups of heavy cream
  • 2 packs of Oreos (or your favorite cookie)

Oreo Ice Cream Method

Start by whipping the heavy cream, combining with the condensed milk. Be gentle from here till the end so you don’t lose the structure of the whipped cream.

Next, crush ¾ of the cookies. Once they are the size and texture you want, mix them into the condensed milk and cream. Pour all of it into a safe freezer container. (Use the rest of your cookies to decorate!)

And that is it! Just pop it in the freezer for a few hours to harden, and enjoy ice cream full of your favorite cookies…

Can you imagine? Chocolate chip, gingerbread, peanut butter… The sky’s the limit!
