No Churn Oreo Ice Cream

Did you know you could make delicious ice cream with 2 ingredients, some salt and ice? I didn’t until now! This No Churn Oreo Ice Cream is absolutely delicious and equally fun to make. This has become a nighttime ritual for us since we have been hanging at home!

No Churn Oreo Ice cream

My son’s precious teacher has been hosting Zoom meetings with his class to do science experiments each week. He gets so excited about these and looks forward to them! Last week, she taught them how to make plain ice cream in a ziplock bag. I decided to kick things up a notch!

Do I have to use Double Stuffed Oreos?

Not at all! The night the kids and I came up with this delicious idea, I immediately called Amanda to share our exciting news! She wanted to try it as well but only had Mint Oreos at home so she gave them a try! In just a few minutes, they had delicious, mint chocolate ice cream! If you are using regular oreos, we do recommend that you use the cream from the center of 3 or 4 extra cookies to help with the creamy, delicious flavor!

Can I use another type of milk?

If you are using cow’s milk, we HIGHLY recommend that you use whole milk. Because this recipe only has 2 ingredients, it is important to us the whole milk to achieve a creamy texture. If you are using Soy, Almond, Cashew, Coconut or any other type of milk, we suggest that you use vanilla flavored if possible!

Wrap gallon sized bag in a dish towel and SHAKE!!! Shake for 3-4 minutes. You do not have to shake hard, just enough to keep the ice and salt moving. Make sure you do not shake too hard and break open the bag- that will definitely create a mess!

After about 2 minutes, you can stop and gently push on the internal bag to see if your ice cream is beginning to harden. You can decide how solid you would like it. If you want the ice cream a little harder, keep shaking!

Once you have it to your desired consistency, carefully open gallon sized bag and remove lunch bag. When opening ice cream bag, be careful not to allow any of the salt water to enter the bag- it won’t hurt you but it probably will not taste good!
