A delicious, quick, and simple Cookies and Cream Oreo Ice Cream. Smooth and creamy – no ice cream maker required!

This really is the simplest ice cream recipe I’ve ever come across. It doesn’t require churning, or an ice cream maker. It doesn’t use a custard so it can be made in a matter of minutes. All you have to do is whip together double cream and condensed milk, pour into a tub and freeze. Stir things around a couple of times as it freezes just to make sure you don’t get any nasty ice crystals forming, then throw in some crushed Oreo cookies.

That’s it!

The results are smooth, creamy and delicious. The base is rich with a hint of vanilla. It melts the way a proper ice cream should melt. The crumbs and chunks of oreo cookie offer the perfect contrast in both taste and texture.

Requiring only a few minutes to make, its the perfect recipe to throw together for a quick BBQ or dinner party dessert. The ice cream would be a fun summer holiday activity with children too. Entertainment, sweet treat and science lesson all rolled into one!

Its perfect in a cone, and would make incredible ice cream sandwiches if you squished a scoop between two Oreo cookies.

I’ve been working on a recipe for a Baileys and Chocolate Ice Cream using the same technique too. Recipe coming very soon!

No Churn Cookies and Cream Oreo Ice Cream

(adapted from BBC food)


(serves 6)

300ml double cream

100ml condensed milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

50g Oreo cookies


Whisk together the double cream, condensed milk and vanilla extract until it starts to turn thick and hold its shape.

Pour into a tin, or a freezer safe Tupperware. Put in the freezer for about half an hour.

After that half an hour, take it out and give it a vigorous stir with a fork, breaking up any parts that may have frozen.Take care to scrap any frozen ice cream from the sides of the tub and break them up.

Repeat after another half an hour, then one final time after another half an hour.

Put your Oreo cookies into a Zip-loc bag and bash them with a rolling pin until you have a mixture of crumbs and pieces of cookie.

Stir the Oreo rubble through the ice cream.

Leave to freeze completely.

Serve in bowls, cones or sandwiched between 2 Oreo cookies!

  1. The base ice cream recipe was featured in sainsbury s mag last year. Works well with raspberry purée stirred through (warm raspberries with icing sugar and lemon juice then sieve and cool) raspberry ripple delicious

  2. I have been contemplating this kind of ice-cream base for a while (I’m wondering if it will work with the ‘low calorie’ condensed milk instead. As much as I would love one, I just don’t have the space for an ice cream machine and the the internet has been torturing me recently with delicious ice cream recipe after delicious ice cream recipe!

  3. Oh WOW! I dare not show this post to misses 6 & 8 – I’d be forever making this ice-cream 🙂
