No-Churn Ice Cream Tips

Before we get to the recipe card, I want to share some additional tips, along with some step-by-step pictures of the entire process. If you have some questions, please leave them in the comments.

What To Use Instead Of A Food Processor

Do you have to use a food processor to chop up the Oreos? No, you don’t, but it will save you lots of time.

If you don’t have a food processor, place the cookies in a resealable plastic bag and make sure it is sealed completely. Then, use a rolling pin to crush the cookies. Be careful not to rip the bag, but go ahead and roll the pin on top of the cookies until they are in lots of teeny pieces.

Use Different Cookies

Even though this recipe is for Oreo ice cream, use your favorite cookies in its place. Try to make some Nutter Butter ice cream or chocolate chip ice cream. I love creating new flavor combinations. This is the fun part of baking!

Whip The Whipping Cream

The first step to making this No-Churn Oreo Ice Cream is to whip your cream until it reaches a stiff consistency. It’s important that you use whipping cream and not frozen whipped topping (like Cool Whip, for example).

Frozen whipped toppings tend to have added ingredients like corn syrup and hydrogenated vegetable oils.

Whipping cream is a cream that doubles in size when frothed – hence, the stiff peaks.

I opt for whipping cream because it keeps things pure and simple for my recipe.

Folding No-Churn Ice Cream

It’s important that all ingredients get thoroughly combined when making your batch of no-churn ice cream. But, be careful! Make sure to fold slowly and carefully – you don’t want to overmix and get a runny consistency!

How Long To Store Homemade Ice Cream

Homemade ice cream will last about 6 months in the freezer. For the best results, I suggest covering it with an airtight lid of some sort. Keep the air off of it and it will last for a long time.

How Does No Churn Ice Cream Work?

It might seem like magic – how does it turn out so light and creamy without having to use an ice cream maker?

The secret is whipping the heavy whipping cream. When you whip it until it has stiff peaks, you are incorporating air into the cream. This is the same scientific principle behind why churning the ice cream works. Both methods add air into the cream and ingredients.

Let The Ice Cream Soften Before Serving

Just like the ice cream you buy at the store, I suggest letting this homemade recipe soften for a few seconds before you try to scoop it out. It freezes pretty solid.

For this reason, I also suggest using a sturdy ice cream scoop. Don’t bend your favorite spoons.
