Handmade Ice Cream

I think its safe to say that most people on this earth love ice cream. Now, if you think this is gonna be a healthy, creative and inspiring recipe you should probably just click away. However, if you’re up for something far more exciting, unhealthy and delicious like ice cream should be keep reading. This recipe calls for terrible things like heavy whipping cream, condensed milk (low fat if it makes you feel better) and vanilla extract. Follow that up with an assortment of ingredients that can be folded in such as M&M’s, Chocolate Chips, Reese’s Cups and Peanut butter. My personal favorite is the Oreo, which I will be sharing with you all today. It saddens me to say that while this is an absolutely wonderful dish, it is not my own. Its a collection of many that I’ve seen and it would be wrong to take credit for them

Prep Time 20 Minutes/ Chill time 24 Hours


16 oz Heavy Whipping Cream

1 can of Low Fat Condensed Milk

2 Tbsp. Vanilla extract

10 Oreo


Place oreos into a zip lock baggie. Then beat the crap out of it with a rolling pin 🙂 definitely my favorite part

Begin by putting a large mixing bowl and whisk into the freezer for about 5 minutes to chill. You should also put an additional larger bowl in as well. The second bowl will be where we combine the freshly created whipped cream and remaining ingredients.

Add heavy whipping to cream to chilled bowl and whisk thoroughly. This should take 5-10 minutes based on whisk ability and skill. If you are fortunate enough to have stand mixer like myself, crank up to 9 and wait 2 minutes. The cream should look like whipped cream once finished (I like to over whisk mine so its less creamy and more chunky, I will explain why later)

Move whipped cream to larger chilled bowl. Proceed to add vanilla and condensed milk. Gently fold this ingredients together until one consistency. The idea is to go from one side, moving your spoon (spatula works best for me) along the side towards the bottom. Then towards the center and lift, repeat to the other side. Imagine the infinity symbol in a bowl, follow the lines. Add in the oreo and incorporate one more time.

Make sure you taste it along the way! Tasting this is the MOST IMPORTANT part, because once the chilling process starts there is no adjusting the flavor. I’ve been told that this is similar to Edy’s ice creams texture and creaminess.

Place newly created science project into some  Tupperware and cover. I place a piece of parchment paper underneath to act as a flavor seal, you should do this if too. Let sit for a full 24 hours, then serve to your friends and family. This recipe costs no more than $10 dollars and makes about 3/4 gallons of ice cream (equivalent to buying it at the store, cheaper than 2 quarts of name brand)
