Homemade Cookies and Cream Ice Cream (vegan!)

Funk’s favorite ice cream = Cookies ‘n Cream.

Ingredients:

2 cans light coconut milk

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup sugar

pinch of salt

25 Oreo cookies (Nabisco, Trader Joe’s or Newman’s brand all work), crushed

Combine coconut milk, vanilla, sugar and salt in a large bowl and mix to combine. Set aside in the fridge 2 hours or overnight. Prepare ice cream according to ice cream maker’s directions by pouring in just the coconut milk mixture. At the end of churning (about 10 minutes on my machine) add in crushed Oreos and churn for another 5 minutes. Freeze for a few more hours until solid.

Just a note to those who are not coconut fans – coconut milk doesn’t taste a thing like the coconut smell/flavor you probably don’t like (tropical scented sunscreen and maccaroons). It has a very mild flavor that can be used in sweet or savory dishes to give a nice, rich, creamy texture and flavor.

We may or may not have come home one night and dished out a shared 5-scoop bowl of this.

    Ugh, you kill me! Every time you post about a new ice cream recipe I am soooo tempted to buy the Cuisinart maker you have and try them out! With each new recipe I am closer and closer to giving in….

    Hahaha buy one!!! Maybe I need to post another ice cream recipe to put you over the edge 😉 Honestly I thought it was something that would collect dust in my kitchen, but you can get a great one for less than $30 and if you’re an ice cream fan, you’ll put it to good use. Heck, I’m only an ice cream fan in the summer and I put it to good use!
