Oreos are some of the most popular cookies out there, and they play a part in a ton of recipes, from cheesecakes to chocolate cakes. Oreos are super versatile!
Well, Oreos are awesome in homemade ice cream as well, especially when you combine them with one of our favorite flavors — coffee. So, coffee and Oreo ice cream is a thing, and yes, it’s as good as it sounds.
The best part is you need just a few ingredients, and everything is ready in minutes. You just have to wait for the ice cream to freeze in the fridge. Other than that, you’ll make this ice cream faster than going to buy some at the store.
There are a few critical ingredients to consider here. Let’s start with coffee, and for me, that means espresso. Two entire shots, to be precise. We also need Oreo cookies, which we’ll crush and throw into the mix.
Condensed milk will give creaminess and sweetness to the ice cream, but feel free to add more sugar if you need it. Vanilla just adds flavor and no sweetness.
The last ingredient is heavy whipping cream, and it matters the most. You must whip it to puff it up to add some air to the ice cream. Without air bubbles, the ice cream will just freeze rock solid.
Let’s explore this recipe and make ourselves a batch of coffee and Oreo ice cream. How cool is that? Let’s do it!
Brew the espresso and let it cool to room temperature.
In a mixing bowl, combine the condensed milk, vanilla extract and espresso.
In a second mixing bowl, whisk the whipping cream until stiff peaks form.
Incorporate the coffee mixture into the whipped cream. Combine with a spatula.
Crush the Oreos and add them in.
Freeze the ice cream overnight.
