It. Is. HOT. Like fan blowing hot air, window blowing no air, spray cold water over your body 24-7 HOT. I mean I know it’s still summer, but this is just ridiculous. So as fun as the fruity summer recipes have been, it’s time I start making/sharing recipes that’ll help us all keep cool!
What better way to keep cool than with some good ole ice cream? No-churn ice cream, of course. Maybe one day I’ll post a recipe for churned ice cream, but no-churn ice cream is far too easy and stress-free to make!
The last no-churn ice cream recipe I shared was this unique Buckeye Ice Cream. Rich chocolate ice cream swirled with peanut butter and ganache and loaded with homemade buckeyes! Talk about YUM! This recipe is a whole lot simpler, a basic mint ice cream base with a ton of chopped mint Oreos mixed in!
How to Make No-Churn Mint Ice Cream
This mint cookies and cream ice cream is made similarly to my original oreo ice cream recipe. Start with 27 mint oreos. Chop up 18 of them, then set those aside. For the remaining 9 oreos, scrape the mint filling out and add it to a small bowl.
Microwave the mint filling until it’s melted and smooth, then add it to the sweetened condensed milk and stir it to combine. This adds the oreo cream AND mint flavour directly into the base! It also adds a pretty green colour.
Now it’s time for the whipped cream. Combine heavy cream and mint extract in a stainless steel or glass bowl. when you add this whipped cream to the mint sweetened condensed milk, it’s gonna wash out most of that green colour. So if you want a bolder green, add a few drops of green food colouring to the heavy cream mixture.
Whip it up until stiff peaks form, then slowly fold it into the condensed milk mixture. Now for the oreos, take the 18 wafers you removed the cream from and pulse them to crumbs in a food processor. Or place them into a ziplock bag and whack at them with something heavy until you end up with crumbs.
Add those crumbs and the 18 chopped mint oreos to the ice cream and fold them until they’re completely combined. We won’t be swirling anything into this ice cream (for once), so just scrape it into your pan or container of choice. Cover it up and let it freeze overnight and you’ve got some tasty mint oreo ice cream!
Mint Chocolate Ganache
For my other oreo ice cream recipe, I poured a generous amount of ganache on top, so it was only necessary to do the same here. Of course, this is a mint recipe, so I had to make a mint flavoured ganache!
Simply add the chocolate chips, heavy cream and mint extract to a bowl and microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring until smooth. This ganache is obviously optional, but it makes such a wonderful topping for this creamy ice cream!
