Cookies & Cream Ice Cream

This Cookies & Cream Ice Cream has been tempting me for too long! I keep reminding everyone in the house not to touch that packet of oreo cookies cos I'm going to use it to make something delicous. Haha!


This ice cream is absolutely delicious! Instead of using milk, dairy cream is added to make it more rich and creamy. We finish it within 3 days! This recipe is taken from an ice-cream making book in Chinese called 冷冻甜品. Do take a look at the bookstore. I have tried the Toblerone Ice Cream which tastes great too! For this Cookies & Cream Ice Cream recipe, you can find it here.

* If you find the cream taste is too heavy (my mum finds its 奶油味太重), I suggest using half cream and half milk, or replacing all the cream with milk. The book suggests substituting every 150g dairy whipping cream with 100g fresh milk.

  1. Your Oreo Ice-cream look really good and tempting. It's really encourage to see you making ice-cream without the ice-cream maker. I bought that book too after seeing your beautiful ice-cream but somehow just din bring myself to do it. Could you share with me like how long it take for the whole process?

  3. Thanks Elyn! The ice-cream recipes in this book are pretty simple. You can eat it straightaway after freezing overnight or until it is totally set.

    However, if you prefer smoother or fluffier ice creams, you can *freeze it till half-set (2-3 hrs later), then whisk with the electric mixer at medium speed till creamy, put it in the freezer again*. Repeat this for 1-2 more times and freeze it till totally set. This will make the ice cream more smooth and creamy. Normally, I just do it for one time. Lazy! :)

    For this cookies & cream ice cream, I just leave it to set overnight.

  9. Hi wiffy, nope, no ice cream maker is required. You can make this at home too! :)

    Hi Elin, yup, ice cream making is so fun, and we can create our own flavours too. I must get my basics right first before trying new ones. Hehe!

    Hi Skinnymum, so happy to hear from you again. Glad that you all like it. Haha! Kids are the fussiest and when they say it's good, it must be really good! :)

  10. Hi SSB,
    This sounded familiar - "reminding everyone in the house not to touch that packet of oreo cookies cos I'm going to use it to make something delicious." Hahaha... It has to be that packet of Oreos, isn't it? Your ice cream looks much better than the one I made previously. I'll just have to try again one day! Thanks for sharing!

  12. Hi Jane, I bet you say that often too, esp when there are children at home. Hehe! Go and give it a try!

    Hi sherlyn, this one doesn't need a mixer. You can try it. It's hard to resist!

  13. hi, can i just check which brand of non-diary whipping cream are you using? How to tell whether it is diary or non-diary? Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  14. Hi thinkingmama, I buy non-diary whipping cream from Phoon Huat - the Redman brand - which comes in 1 litre packet. All their whipping creams are well-labelled. If you are unsure, you can ask the staff. Dairy creams will state the % of fat in it.

    Here's the price list from Phoon Huat:

    Hope it helps!

  16. Dear SSB .. I need the mixer to whisk the whip cream .. my arm power is not good enough to whip till stiff :( ... btw, how do u finish the 1 litre of whip cream ? I cant find my post of my toberone ice cream now (perhaps I did not post abt it?), but i just finished my 1 litre of whip cream since I open it then .. think it could be more than 6 mths. Oops!

  17. Hi thinkingmama, the Phoon Huat store that I frequent did label the creams. Anyway, I also ask the staff the 1st time I bought it just to be very sure. :)

    Hi sherlyn, oops, I forgot about the whipping part for the cream. You mean the non-dairy one? It can be stored in the freezer for a very long time. I think more than 6 months also no problem. Just thaw it in the fridge few hours before you want to use it. Now that you can make ice creams, you can finish them up faster! :)

  18. Your homemade ice-cream looks so tempting to me! I think we can finish it in 1 day! Hehehe!

    ReplyDelete
  19. hmm .. now is the time to decide when to buy .. mid year sales is just round the corner, then after that is the GSS sales .. keke..

    ya with ice cream, sure can finish faster .. but tasty ice cream is very fattening with all these heavy cream, whip cream and milk ... how to make often leh? My body build is on the big side leh :(

  20. Thanks Food For Tots! I'm sure it can be easily finished within 1 day if you don't exercise some self-control. Haha!

    Hi sherlyn, wow, waiting to see your new mixer. Maybe make it once a month. Hehe! I'm trying some other ice creams soon. :)

  22. Not new flavour lah. The classic vanilla flavour. Have been wanting to try it with my pure vanilla extract. And trying to make ice cream using the traditional method. Will share with you all after I have tried it. :)

  26. Hi Small Small Baker,

    I always got tis question abt whipped cream used on ice cream. The whipped cream used in ice-cream is those liquid type or those shake well n squeeze out type?

    Stupid Girl :p

  27. Hi stupid girl,

    You have to use the liquid type and whip it up using a mixer. I'm not sure if the squeeze out type works. Hope it helps. :)
