This Oreo Ice Cream is absolutely to DIE for! If you want the taste of homemade ice cream without the work of homemade ice cream, this recipe is perfect! No one will ever believe its base is Blue Bell ice cream!
My dear friend Sharon Gilbert shared her recipe for Oreo Ice Cream with me, and it has quickly become one of my favorite desserts! I love making it for dinner parties, small groups, or tailgates. Since it is made with all store-bought ingredients, waiting for it to freeze is the hardest part of this recipe!
Can Store-Bought Ice Cream Taste Homemade?
You do not have to own an ice cream maker to enjoy ice cream that tastes homemade! Once you taste this Oreo Ice Cream, you will never believe how quick it is to whip together. Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla is doctored up to taste just like it was made the old-fashioned way. Cool whip and a dash of vanilla extract are the secret ingredients that make this ice cream extra creamy and flavorful!
How Do I Make Oreo Ice Cream?
To make Oreo Ice Cream, all you need is Blue Bell’s Homemade Vanilla ice cream, Cool Whip, a dash of vanilla, and double-stuffed Oreos. First, set out your container of ice cream and let it thaw until it reaches a soupy consistency. Second, pour the soupy ice cream into a large bowl and add the vanilla and Cool Whip. After you thoroughly mix the Cool Whip and vanilla into the ice cream, break the Oreos into the ice cream in large chunks. Lastly, cover the mixture with aluminum foil and place it in the freezer until frozen.
Can I Substitute Ingredients In This Recipe?
Since there are only four ingredients in this recipe, it is very important that you follow it exactly. Sharon has tailored this recipe to achieve that fabulous homemade flavor, so I do not recommend straying from the recipe. Additionally, fat-free and sugar-free ice cream and Cool Whip will not achieve the same creamy texture and flavor as the full-fat and full-sugar products.
How Do I Freeze and Store Oreo Ice Cream?
Since this delicious treat has to spend some time setting in the freezer, it has to be made ahead. After you mix together your Oreo Ice Cream, transfer it to an airtight container and let it freeze for at least
five hours. If you want to serve this quickly, you can freeze it in a covered stainless steel bowl. I recommend making this in the morning if you want to serve it at night!
