Check out our recipe on how to make Cookies and Cream Ice Cream using the Ninja Creami!
Cookies and cream ice cream has become a staple in all ice cream shops! It's sweet, chocolatey and so creamy! Chances are, if you like Oreos, you've had cookies and cream ice cream at least once....if not way more!
The combination of the rich vanilla ice cream mixed with bits and pieces of the Oreo cookies makes the best ice cream. The cookies do a nice job of incorporating into the vanilla ice cream. Instead of having vanilla ice cream with cookies in it, you end up with an ice cream that has cookies throughout and also bigger chunks of cookies!
One of the nice things about the Ninja Creami is that you have 100% control over the ratio of cookies to ice cream. Some like A LOT of cookies, while others prefer more vanilla ice cream. No matter how you like it, you can adjust this recipe to fit your preferences. I personally like a lot of cookies...so I used 5 cookies per pint. If you want more vanilla and less cookies, use 3 or 4 cookies instead.
Tips for making Ninja Creami Cookies and Cream Ice Cream
Basically, cookies and cream ice cream is a rich vanilla ice cream base that has chunks of Oreo cookies mixed throughout. The key is to get the cookies to incorporate with the vanilla base and not just end up being vanilla ice cream with pieces of cookies.
That depends. I like a lot of cookies, so I added 5 crumbled Oreos as mix-ins. For an ice cream that is more vanilla than cookie, use fewer cookies.
Oreo cookies are used to make cookies and cream ice cream. You can also use generic chocolate sandwich cookies. For this recipe, I would not recommend using other styles of cookies like chocolate chip. The result will still be good but you won't be able to achieve similar results to the cookies and cream. The cream filling is important as it adds to the creaminess and flavor of the ice cream.
No. Premade pudding cannot be used for this recipe. The recipe takes the flavors of the pudding and incorporates it into the rest of the ingredients. Pre-made pudding would be too much volume for the container and the flavor would not be as intense.
Usually, if your ice cream comes out dry or crumbly it's due to one of the following reasons:
*Your freezer is too cold. Try to adjust your freezer to be a little warmer or let your ice cream sit on the counter for 5-10 minutes before processing it.
*Your recipe does not have enough fat in it. Try adding in a little bit of a higher fat dairy product to your recipe next time.
*Your recipe may not have enough sugar in it. The less sugar in the recipe, the icier and crumblier the ice cream will be. Regular sugar, honey, or corn syrup can be used to increase the sugar content if desired.
To help resolve this issue, after processing, add 1 tablespoon of dairy and then reprocess.
