Heavy whipping cream. Heavy whipping cream is the secret ingredient to making no-churn ice cream. When it’s whipped into light and fluffy whipped cream, no churning is necessary!
Make sure you don’t pick up whipping cream by mistake — it has less fat and doesn’t quite whip up as thick and creamy as heavy whipping cream does.
Vanilla extract. Pure vanilla extract lightly flavors the whipped cream to taste similar to classic vanilla ice cream.
Sweetened condensed milk. The sweetness we expect in ice cream comes courtesy of sweetened condensed milk in the no-churn ice cream recipe.
This recipe uses ½ of a 14 ounce can of sweetened condensed milk. If you’re looking for ways to use up the rest, here are some great ideas!
Oreo cookies. This classic sandwich cookie will be crushed, broken, and twisted apart to create these delicious Oreo ice cream sandwiches. Use the original chocolate flavor or any flavor you love — mint, golden, red velvet, peanut butter … whatever sounds good to you!
Chocolate chips, sprinkles, nuts, and other doo-dads. As an option, you can roll your Oreo ice cream sandwiches around in chocolate chips, sprinkles, nuts, toasted coconut, or Oreo crumbs. You can even dip them in melted chocolate!
Step by step instructions
Make the Oreo Ice Cream
Chill a large glass or metal bowl and beaters in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or the freezer for 15 minutes.
Keeping everything cold will result in whipped cream that is creamy and fluffy. It will also help it whip more quickly.
Crush 6 Oreo sandwiches into crumbs.
Place them in a zip top bag and break them up with your hands or crush them with a rolling pin. I like to keep large chunks of cookie, but if you like really fine crumbs, process them in a food processor.
With a hand mixer or stand mixer, whip the heavy cream and vanilla until stiff peaks form, which means that the peaks stand up when the beaters are lifted. This will take about 3-5 minutes.
Gently fold the sweetened condensed milk into the whipped cream.
Stir the Oreo cookie pieces into the condensed milk mixture.
Place the mixture into a freezer-safe container. A metal loaf pan works great.
Break up two Oreos and press them into the ice cream.
Place a sheet of plastic wrap directly on the surface of the ice cream. Freeze for 6 hours or overnight, until firm.
Assemble the Sandwiches
IMPORTANT NOTE: This recipe makes a big batch of ice cream sandwiches. But I don't always make them all at the same time. Sometimes 6, sometimes 12, sometimes just 1 or 2.
If you are making the full batch, work quickly, as no-churn ice cream tends to melt a bit faster than store-bought ice cream. I recommend assembling in batches so you can get them in the freezer as quickly as possible.
For example, make 6 sandwiches, transfer them to the pan in the freezer, and repeat until all 24 are done.
If the ice cream gets too soft, you may need to put it back in the freezer for a couple of hours to let it firm up.
Prepare a baking pan or sheet pan with parchment paper.
Twist open the Oreos and, if desired, scrape out the filling. You can also keep the filling in the cookies.
Scoop out 1-2 tablespoons of Oreo ice cream and place it onto one Oreo cookie half.
Top the scoop of ice cream with the other chocolate cookie half. Gently press the top cookie down until the ice cream is pushed out to the edge of the bottom cookie.
Place the Oreo ice cream sandwiches in the freezer for 1-2 hours or until firm.
If desired, roll the sides of each Oreo ice cream sandwich in mini chocolate chips, nuts, toasted coconut, Oreo crumbs, or sprinkles.
Cream whips the quickest, lightest, and fluffiest when everything is very cold: the bowl, the beaters, and the cream. Place the bowl and beaters in the fridge for 30 minutes or the freezer for 15 minutes and keep the cream in the fridge until you’re ready to start whipping.
Place plastic wrap directly on the surface of the ice cream to keep it from developing ice crystals.
I recommend working in batches so you can get the ice cream sandwiches in the freezer as quickly as possible. I usually make 6 sandwiches at a time and transfer them to the pan in the freezer.
Roll the frozen ice cream cookies in mini chocolate chips, sprinkles, coconut, or nuts or dip them in melted chocolate and add more doo-dads.
Twist apart the Oreos and place half of the cookies face down on a parchment lined pan.
Place 1-2 tablespoons of Oreo ice cream on each cookie. Gently press down another cookie on top of each ice cream scoop.
Freeze 1-2 hours or until firm. If desired, roll the ice cream sandwich in mini chocolate chips, crushed Oreo wafer pieces, nuts, or coconut.
Oh, there are so many delicious things you can do with the leftover sweetened condensed milk! You can:
• Store it in a sealed container in the refrigerator for about a month
• Freeze it in a freezer-safe container for up to 3 months
• Stir it into your coffee or tea for a sweet and creamy treat
