Oreo Cookies and Cream Ice Cream

Sunday, September 5, 2010
With my recent motivation to figure what kind of food allergies I have, I've been trying to avoid certain foods. As of late, it has been wheat. Avoiding wheat takes a lot out of your diet. So this has lead me to compensate in other areas. Namely ice cream. Dairy Queen blizzards to be specific. After having a week's worth of blizzards, my wallets running low, (and surprisingly I never get tired of having them!) But, being the baker I am, I began to guilt myself as I knew I could be making these at home.


My favorite blizzard has to be the regular Oreo. They also have an Oreo cookie jar flavor, which is Oreo bits AND cookie dough bits. So actually that might be
my favorite. Another good one is their caramel turtle pecan. So good. But I wanted to recreate these at home since I'm in love with my ice cream maker. First up: Oreo! Duhhhhh.


I found an eggless vanilla ice cream recipe (I am so lazy) and then added largely chopped Oreos in at the end. Two things: 1) I should have made a custard ba
se (see next paragraph), 2) I should have made some smaller pieces as well instead of quarter pieces. After seeing the large pieces in it, I wanted to start crushing some up for smaller bits, but my dad stopped me. I don't know why I decided to cater to him, but he wanted the pieces big enough so he could pick them out. RUDE.


I always love eating the ice cream while it's churning. I think that's when it tastes best! For this specific ice cream, it gave me an indicator of what my ice cream would taste like. In this case, chilled whipped cream. I joke not. It was a big batch of fluffy slightly chilled whipped cream. It was so bizarre! I realized that by not making a custard base I would be missing out on the traditional taste, but really, this was intense whipped cream. My mom is a whipped cream fanatic and my dad, surprisingly, loved it as well. But I just couldn't get over the fact that it was "whipped" cream and not "ice" cream.


However.... after proper freezing, this ice cream tasted just fine and I demolished it quickly! I made the Oreo pieces pretty big and I'd have to say this was a huge success. I quite liked this and no need to spend money on blizzards every night! And with the left over Oreos I hope to have another treat to share with you guys!

Oreo Cookies and Cream Ice Cream
from here

1 c whole milk
2 c heavy cream
1/2 c sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
Oreos (I think the amount is very subjective)

Whisk together milk and sugar until sugar is dissolved. Pour on heavy cream and vanilla. Add to ice cream maker and churn according to manufacturers directions.

Add in Oreo pieces when the churning is done and enjoy immediately for soft serve, or freeze.

    Your ice cream looks scrumptious! And I love Blizzards - they are so addicting!

    So my favorite type of icecream is certainly cookies-and-cream. I also love blizzards, and I treat myself once or twice a year. I love how you served your concoction in a wine glass...such a cute idea!

  1. Ohh I definitely couldn't make this because I'd eat it all!! Oreo ice cream has always been my favourite.
