This no churn cookies and cream ice cream is so creamy and simple, you won’t need to use an ice cream maker ever again. And it’s just 3 ingredients!

3 Ingredient Cookies and Cream Ice Cream

Cookies and cream is one of my favorite ice cream flavors, so I am so excited about this recipe. It is smooth, creamy, and as good as store-bought ice cream.  Unlike other no-churn ice cream recipes I’ve tried, it’s not icy – every spoonful is smooth and creamy, with bits of Oreos in every bite. This is life-changing ice cream. 


  • Heavy cream
  • Sweetened condensed milk – use full-fat for this recipe. Low-fat sweetened condensed milk will not produce the same result.
  • Crushed Oreo cookies – crush cookies in a food processor or place them in a bag and crush them with a rolling pin.

How to Make It

Whip the cream in a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, or you can use a hand mixer. Whip until the cream holds stiff peaks.

Pour the milk into a large bowl. Fold in the whipped cream with a spatula. Do this slowly, and don’t stir, which will deflate the cream. Use a folding motion.

Carefully fold in the cookie chunks until they are mixed in. Pour the mixture into a 9×5″ loaf pan and smooth the top with the spatula.

Freeze the ice cream overnight or until it’s firm.

Storage Tips

You can store the ice cream in the loaf pan covered with plastic wrap or another freezer-safe container. It will last a few weeks in the freezer. Or, you can store it in ice cream pint containers*.

The most important thing about storing homemade ice cream is keeping it in the coldest part of your refrigerator. This will keep it from forming ice crystals. Ice crystals happen when ice cream partially melts and refreezes, so keep it away from the door.

Fun Ways to Serve It

Cones: Regular ice cream cones or waffle cones are great, but it’s really fun to serve this ice cream in doughnut cones or egg waffle cones.

Cookie bowls: Serve it in chocolate cookie bowls, Nutella brownie bowls, or churro ice cream bowls!

Sandwich cookies: You can use this ice cream to make churro ice cream sandwiches or Nutella chocolate chip cookie sandwiches.

Toppings: Or scoop it into bowls and add some toppings like chocolate syrup and whipped cream.

After tasting this, I’ve decided I’m not taking out my ice cream maker this summer. I might not even buy any ice cream this summer because I’m really excited to make more.

  1. Is there a way to dilute the condensed milk? This is so good, but just so sweet. ?

    • It is a sweet ice cream – we don’t recommend diluting the milk because the ice cream may not set up properly.

  2. I’m gaining weight just reading the recipe(s),
    BUT CANNOT WAIT TO MAKE IT! Will be going to the store early tomorrow for ingredients. ?

  3. It’s great thank you. B.fletcher

  4. Can you freeze it directly in the pint containers you mentioned in the link? Or does it need to specifically be frozen in a loaf pan?

  5. Should I cover this when freezing? Making it tomorrow for a date; need it to go well!

    • I don’t cover mine, but if you wanted to, you could put a light layer of plastic wrap over it. Hope yours turns out well!

  6. Does the ice cream melt easily? Can it be used to make an ice cream cake?

  7. Hello,
    How much does this recipe make?? Litres etc?

    • It makes enough to fill a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan as shown in the photo. I have not actually measured the finished quantity beyond that.

  8. I made a coffee chocolate chip ice cream using this recipe the other day, so delicious! My sister has an ice cream maker and we used to make goat milk ice cream (she owns a goat farm), but it would only make a little bit. I’d been dying for my own ice cream maker to “expand”, but not anymore. This is so simple and can be made into so many flavors. Great recipe!

  9. Love your food photography and details, really helps,
    thank you so much for sharing

  10. SUCCESS! We loved making this together – my son crushed the Oreos and “helped” me whip the cream (his hands over mine as I held the mixer and the bowl). We ended up buying waffle cones for our special ice cream because my son wanted our version to look like your photos (and they do!). While it is rich, it’s just forced us to eat less and share a cone instead. Thanks, Kirbie for this AWESOME recipe!

    • yay! Thanks for sharing your success story. I love that your son was able to help out! Haha, and I love that you guys bought waffle cones just to look like the photo. So glad you enjoyed the recipe!

  11. Looks so delicious!!!! Will try it.

  12. Holy cow, TC and I have to make this!!!!!! I love that it only had 3 ingredients and it’s no churn!

    • I actually thought of you because I remember you like ice cream recipes that are no churn. Def make this! it’s so good!

  13. Wow, how simple is that?? Hard to believe, it looks too good to be so easy! 

    Love those pint containers, might have to get me some of those 🙂

  14. Wow! What perfect timing – I picked up heavy cream because of a coupon last week, but didn’t have a recipe in mind. My 4-year-old son loves cooking and ice cream, so this makes a perfect project for this weekend!

  15. wow too easy! i guess this calls for the costco size of heavy cream!

  16. This look so delicious! Your photos are beautiful btw!!
