Two Peas and Their Pod

4 Ingredient Chocolate Cookies ‘n’ Cream Ice Cream {Cookbook Giveaway}

Summer is here! Friday was the last day of school for the kids in our neighborhood. We live across the street from the park and the kids are already out and about enjoying their summer vacation. Summer and ice cream go hand-in-hand if you ask me. I am so ready for ice cream season!

We churned up a batch of 4 Ingredient Chocolate Cookies ‘n’ Cream Ice Cream to celebrate the start of summer. The recipe comes from my dear friend, Alice’s, new cookbook, Savory Sweet Life. Alice’s book is filled with 100 simple and delicious recipes that are perfect for any and every family occasion. And good news-we are giving away a copy today!

Savory Sweet Life is one of those cookbooks that you can’t put down. There is a photo for every single recipe and the photos are stunning. Warning-your stomach might growl at you while reading Alice’s book:) The book is organized by occasion, such as, Sunday mornings, Game Day, Potlucks, and Family Game Night. The recipes are easy to prepare and use basic ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen. Alice also shares personal stories, time-saving tips, and practical advice. I love everything about the book!

The first recipe I tried from Savory Sweet Life was Alice’s Chocolate Cookies ‘n’ Cream Ice Cream. It is amazing! Alice created the recipe for her daughter who is sensitive to dairy. Yep, this ice cream is dairy-free! I promise you will never know it! The ice cream is so rich and creamy.

So what is the secret? Coconut milk! You blend coconut milk, sugar, and cocoa powder together and churn the mixture in an ice cream maker. You add the crushed Oreos during the last 5 minutes of churning and that’s it. So simple! I still can’t believe there are only 4 ingredients needed to create such a decadent ice cream. I know we are going to be making this 4 Ingredient Chocolate Cookies ‘n’ Cream Ice Cream ALL summer long.

I can’t wait to cook and bake my way through Savory Sweet Life. I know it won’t be put back on our bookshelf for a long time.

4 Ingredient Chocolate Cookies 'n' Cream Ice Cream

Yield: 1 pint

You only need 4 ingredients to make this decadent ice cream!


1 (14 ounce) can coconut milk
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
10 Oreos, crushed


1. Combine the coconut milk, sugar, and cocoa powder in a blender and blend for 20 seconds. Pour the liquid mixture into the bowl of an ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer's instructions. During the last 5 minutes of churning, add the crushed Oreos.

2. Transfer the ice cream to a plastic container, cover, and freeze until ready to eat.

Note-Alice recommends using Chaokoh brand coconut milk because of its high fat content.

  1. I can’t wait to break out my ice cream maker this summer…I’ve owned it for two years and not made a single thing, but this is going to change very soon! This looks amazing and I love that it’s so simple.

    I can’t wait to make more trips to the North Shore… there’s literally nothing better than a day at Waimea swimming, snorkeling and cliff jumping. Oh… and of course getting shave ice afterwards!

    I always look forward to eating ice cream. This summer though my brother is expecting his first child. I am really looking forward to that.

  10. Amy F. — June 4, 2012 @ 6:32 am

    That ice cream looks incredible but can you tell me, does it have a strong coconut flavor? I’m really not a fan of coconut so I’m trying to imagine that flavor mixed with Oreos.

    And as for what I’m looking forward to… getting back home to Chicago to visit friends and family.

  11. Anne — June 4, 2012 @ 6:34 am

    I’m looking forward to a visit from my family over July 4th–hamburgers on the grill, homemade ice cream (my nephew thinks we should make four kinds), croquet, sparklers, old Disney movies. It doesn’t get better than that!

  12. Kiersten — June 4, 2012 @ 6:37 am

  28. Sherri W — June 4, 2012 @ 7:51 am

    swimming… definitely during nap time, since that will be very relaxing!

  29. Corey — June 4, 2012 @ 7:51 am

    Grew up working on a fruit farm and I still go back every season for fresh blueberries, raspberries and peaches. To me, nothing’s better than picking a sun-ripened peach straight off the tree and biting into it; it’s not summer unless there’s peach juice dribbling down your arm! I bet the cocoa-based ice cream here will go great with some black raspberries in place of the cookie bits- but I do love Oreos just as much!

  30. Danielle — June 4, 2012 @ 7:55 am

    Looking forward to building our new backyard patio!
