Bye, Summer: No-Churn Cookie Dough Ice Cream

Cookie dough? Did someone say cookie dough? Yes, cookie dough, that stuff your mother always scolded you when you took a bit from the mixing bowl. Yes, cookie dough, that stuff that adults told you would kill you, but you ate anyways (and look at you, you came out fine… right?). But no worries, there are no eggs in this cookie dough ice cream. Not in the base, and not in the dough. Yes, this is another recipe for no-churn ice cream, an ice cream so simple and delicious, even a novice could make!

Then add in your vanilla (ahhh, that aroma) and flour. Don’t freak out if the mixture doesn’t quite resemble the cookie dough you know and love. We’ll fix the consistency in the next step.

Add in the milk (that looks better), and fold in the chocolate chips. IMG_0567     IMG_0568

Now that you have your cookie dough, drop some of it into the ice cream base and whip it up real good so it’s evenly distributed throughout the base.

Roll little balls of cookie dough and carefully fold them into the cookie dough ice cream base.


Pour the ice cream into a container and freeze!


Once frozen, enjoy straight away (and no, you don’t have to wait for the ice cream to soften!) The amazing thing about no-churn ice cream is that it comes out of the freezer perfectly soft and ready for consumption! Yum!
