Happy hump day everybody! With all of the work we’ve been doing on our patio and backyard lately, I knew we needed something extra special as a reward. And nothing says summertime treat to me like homemade ice cream. Especially when it’s my new favorite no churn mint cookies and cream ice cream. Trust me friends, this one is a game changer.
It’s the beauty of mint chocolate chip and cookies and cream coming together and making sweet decadent dessert. And let me tell you it is simply glorious!
I don’t know what it is, but I have been on a mint ice cream kick lately, and it’s honestly never really been on my radar till now. But boy was I missing out! There was no doubt in my love for cookies and cream, but making it MINT cookies and cream just takes it to a whole new level. It may just be a perfect combination.
And if you haven’t tried the “no churn” method of ice cream then stop everything you’re doing and make this a priority, because it is simply amazing.
The method is so simple, and you’ll never know it wasn’t made from an ice cream maker. All you need are a handful of ingredients, a mixer, and 9×5 loaf pan. And once you get the hang of it, the flavor possibilities are endless!
This mint cookies and cream ice cream has quickly become my go to summer flavor. With the delicious cookies mixed with the sweet refreshing flavor of the mint, I’m drooling over here just thinking about it. You guys have to try it!
- 1 pint of heavy whipping cream
- 1 14oz can of sweetened condensed milk
- ½ tsp of mint extract
- 10 Oreo cookies, broken into pieces
- 4-5 drops of green food coloring
- In your mixer, mix your heavy whipping cream on medium-high speed for 15 minutes, or until it begins to take on a frothy texture.
- In a separate bowl, combine your sweetened condensed milk, mint extract, Oreos, and food coloring.
- Once heavy whipping cream is ready, add your sweetened condensed mixture and mix until thoroughly combined. If you mixture looks a little pale, you can add an extra drop of food coloring at this point.
- Pour mixture into your loaf pan. Cover tightly with aluminum foil, and place in freezer. Leave the mixture to freeze overnight.
Nothing like yummy ice cream to help you get over the hump day blues, right? I think I’m going to enjoy another bowl of my mint cookies and cream ice cream on my patio because it’s summer and that’s just what you do.
