4-Ingredient Chocolate Cookies 'n' Cream Ice Cream Easy creamy chocolate ice cream with Oreo cookies

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!

4-Ingredient Chocolate Cookies 'n' Cream Ice Cream Easy creamy chocolate ice cream with Oreo cookies makes a great dessert

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.

  • 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.

  2. Mmm… I love ice cream. We haven’t made it at home since we moved, but this makes me want to get out our ice cream maker.

    nd (dot) farrell (at) yahoo (dot) com

  3. So excited about her book! Awesome giveaway!

    what you are looking forward to this summer? = longer days and summer fruit!

  4. 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!

  5. My bestie just recently moved to Australia, and I am going to visit her this summer! Can’t wait to see my friend thousands of miles away!

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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!

  9. I’m already enjoying fresh summer fruit! But I’m also excited for using our new ice cream maker and new grill 🙂

  12. I’m looking forward to reading lots of books, seeing family, and then meeting my daughter. 🙂

  13. 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!

  14. I am looking forward to our family camping trip. I love spending time with or extended family. And this year my grandsons are coming!

  15. I’ll definitely be making this for my 4-year old, I know he’s going to love me for that, and you too for passing on the recipe. Thank you!

  172. I’m looking forward to swimming, but most of all our trip to Washington, DC. 13 yr old son was nominated for Jr. Nat Young Leaders Conference.

    This cookbook would be amazing!

    Thanks! Happy summer. 🙂

  173. Looks a delicious ice cream, been looking for some new ideas for the kids 🙂

  177. Oh, summer.
    Even though I’m no fan of the heat, summer brings lovely leisure time. I always look forward to spending more time with friends, especially when a good time on the town isn’t restricted to friday or saturday night

  178. I am looking forward to the longer days, and just the simple things of summer…..like homemade ice cream, swimming, and backyard parties with friends! We sat down with our 5 year old son and made a “summer bucket list”….and his list consisted of such simple things…..and now with our list, we will make sure to spend our summer checking them off!! Can’t wait to try this recipe!

  179. Swimming and eating lots and lots of ice cream! today was my first day at the pool and it felt great!

  180. I don’t own an I’ve cream maker but this post makes me want to get one! Besides beginning to make ice cream, I can’t wait for ripe tomatoes, watermelon & sweet corn this summer. This is my favorite culinary season!

  181. I love that this uses coconut milk instead of cream! Do you need to chill the mixture before pouring it into your ice cream maker?

  185. My favorite things of summer– family bbqs, kids running through the sprinkler, garden goodies, and home made ice cream!

  186. Watermelon and longer days are about the main things I like about summer – it is much too hot for me in Georgia where we live, so I basically count the days until fall!

  187. We are looking forward to picking berries, swimming, going to the beach, taking my 3 kids and husband for their first time to Disneyland and Sea World.

  191. I am SUPER excited for this particular summer to go very slow. My husband just got promoted and I can now be a SAHM. I am baking my way through some flour an making bread for all of our family an friends to celebrate. Plus my daughter is 18 months old, so this is going to be the summer I have dreamed of for over 10 years. Stay at home, be a mom, and cook!!!

  192. Cookies ‘n’ cream ice cream is my favourite flavour! I’m definitely going to make this once Summer arrives.

    (Here in Australia, it’s Winter)

  193. I always get intimidated by a long list of ingredients and steps the recipes usually have but this one sounds like a perfect one for a novice like me.

  194. I am looking forward to spending time with my BF. He works nonstop during the rest of the year. Also, kayaking with my family.

  199. I love everything about summer. We cook outside more and have lots of family get togethers. The kids love homemade ice cream, grilled hot dogs, and swimming. I love the sun and the summer time rains that make the dirt smell fresh.

  208. I am looking forward to tan lines! i’m in dyer need of some vitamin D! not too mention strawberry lemonade, grilling out, and fresh summer corn! 🙂

  209. This seems simply delicious! Honestly, the thing I am looking forward to do most this summer is obtaining a job. I recently graduated from college, and I’m having a frustratingly difficult time finding a full-time job…Making 4 ingredient ice cream will just have to tide me over, for now!

  210. I am excited for fresh fruits and veggies- especially tomatoes, corn and blueberries.

  214. This past weekend was a perfect summer weekend – boat rides (with tubing and wakeboarding), bonfire with s’mores, rock climbing, and plenty of time playing at the beach with friends. I hope the rest of summer contains more of the same!

  215. Summer means large family BBQ’s and lots of excuses to bake and enjoy the outdoors!!

  218. I am looking forward to the heat! I live in South Texas, where, yes, I suppose it’s always hot, but I love wearing shorts, tank tops, flip flops, and dresses!

  219. That ice cream makes me wish I had an ice cream maker. I may need to get one of those this summer! Summer means seeing my sister, which only happens once a year — so I am looking forward to some quality sister-time!

  224. This summer, I’m looking forward to FINALLY getting a honeymoon with my husband! We were married last year, but with his med school schedule and my new job, we weren’t able to take a honeymoon. We’re going in two weeks as soon as he takes his med school board exam! Mexico, here we come!

  225. wow! That ice cream makes me want to get an ice cream maker!!! I’m looking forward to having a baby this summer. I may need some ice cream to cool me down.

  226. I am looking forward to so much as my life is being completely flipped this summer. I’m moving into a new apartment with a new roommate, starting a new school for a new career while working a new job, and getting into a new diet and exercise regime that includes a little time spent reading in the pool. It’s a lot of change, but in a super good way. This ice cream will just push it over the top. Yum!

  227. We just enjoy the long, easy, relaxed days full of ice cream cones, swimming pools, and fresh vegetables from our garden. Thank you so much.

  228. I’m headed to Montreal along with a friend for 10 days of spectacular scenery, great museums, wonderful food and non-Texas heat. We’re already being blasted with 90+ degrees.

  229. I am actually looking forward to making homemade ice cream so I am glad to see this recipe! I got an ice cream maker for Christmas and haven’t used it yet. I love homemade ice cream!

  239. All the fun and dirt that summer has to offer. Family vacations, staying up too late, drippy popsicles, kids learning to bike-ride, not having a strict schedule to adhere to, a fish fry, water balloons, hot wheels races in the driveway, warm raindrops, flashlights in the tent…

  240. I’m looking forward to going to the beach and then eating a ton of yummy ice cream treats. (Preferably in that order. :P)

  289. I’m so looking forward to watching my herb seeds emerge through the soil, especially the mint I will simmer gently in sugar and water. It will refresh my icey cold tea on a hot summers afternoon.

  290. Work! Work! And more work! Unfortunately, have to work 2 jobs and can’t afford a holiday or the time off. Haven’t even received any invitations to cottages for long weekends in a decade … which okay when the weather’s rainy … but really saddening when it’s hot and sunny.

  291. Thanks so much for this awesome ice cream recipe! I have made it twice, one time for my husband and I and another time for a group of friends. Both times it turned out great and everyone loved it. I have a hard time with diary but with this recipe I don’t even miss it!
