Just like my favorite lovable blue muppet from Sesame Street, I LOVE to eat cookies! I especially love to eat cookies when they are blended into vanilla ice cream.

But taking on the task of making Cookie Monster ice cream from scratch is daunting enough for me to surrender my services to the ice cream truck parked at the nearest street corner. And I don’t mean Sesame Street in this case!

Luckily, you can still get your licks at home because this recipe is so easy to make; no churning needed to get perfectly rich and creamy ice cream.

The ice cream base itself is a simple combination of heavy cream, condensed milk, and marshmallow fluff that blends together to create a fluffy consistency. We then add blue food coloring to generate the fun, bold hue of Cookie Monster himself.

And when the chunks of cookies are folded into the vanilla ice cream base, they add heavenly crunchy textures and tons of delicious chocolatey goodness to each and every sweet bite.

Did I mention there’s no ice cream machine required (LOL)? The ice cream mixture simply freezes in a loaf pan overnight, making this one of the easiest ice cream recipes to prepare, and definitely the most fun, right from the convenience of your very own freezer. Each scoop is a cool treat for the cookie monster lover in all of us.

Ingredients / Shopping List

  • Heavy cream: whipped until stiff peaks form, then folded into the condensed milk base to give the ice cream a lighter, fluffier texture.
  • Sweetened and condensed milk: a thick, creamy, and sweet base for the ice cream.
  • Marshmallow fluff
  • Vanilla extract: provides the homemade ice cream with a sweet vanilla flavor.
  • Salt
  • Blue gel food coloring: gives the ice cream its signature vibrant blue color. Add as much or as little as you’d like! Not a fan of food coloring? Then you can leave it out completely!
  • Oreos: mixed into the ice cream to add chocolatey, crunchy textures and so much cookie flavor!
  • Chocolate chip cookies: adds extra cookie crunch. Feel free to use homemade cookies instead of a store-bought brand.

This homemade ice cream can be prepped in 10 quick minutes– no-churning necessary!

Beat the heavy cream in a cold metal bowl with a mixer for about 3 minutes until stiff peaks form. Gradually increase the speed from slow to fast.
Pro Tip: Refrigerate your metal bowl for 10 minutes prior to use. A cold base will help it freeze faster, which will result in a better texture.

  • You can add more or less food coloring to reach your desired color.
  • You can use a blender to crush up your cookies. Or you can place the cookies in a sealed sandwich bag and roll over them with a rolling pin.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What flavor is cookie monster ice cream

Cookie monster ice cream is typically a vanilla-flavored ice cream with blue food coloring and chunks of cookies mixed in. You can make it any flavor that you like, but you will usually find it to be vanilla.

How do I store homemade ice cream?

Tightly cover this ice cream and keep it in the freezer for up to two months. We love this ice cream container! It is a perfect size and great for helping to prevent freezer burn!

How long should I freeze my ice cream?

I recommend freezing your ice cream overnight or for a minimum of 4-5 hours before serving. This gives it time to firm up to a perfect consistency.

Can I use regular milk?

No, you cannot use regular milk to replace the sweetened and condensed milk or the heavy cream in this recipe. The consistency and flavor of sweetened and condensed milk is necessary to create the rich, sweet, creamy base and heavy cream whips into stiff peaks which keeps this ice cream light and fluffy. Regular milk won’t provide a creamy, sweet base and doesn’t whip into stiff peaks.

How can I serve this ice cream?

There are so many fun ways to enjoy this ice cream. Here are some of my favorites:
As an ice cream sandwich. Place a generous scoop of ice cream between two of your favorite cookies. 
In a bowl. Top with hot fudge for a delicious gooey finish!
In a cone. Stuff a waffle cone until it’s full, then top with sprinkles and a cherry!
With brownies. Serve a scoop of ice cream on top of a warm brownie for a super chocolatey treat!

What is Cookie Monsters real name?

Fun fact!! Cookie Monster actually has a real name and it is Cap’n Horatio Magellan Crunch!
