How to Make Cookie Monster Ice Cream
STEP ONE: Using a stand mixer, hand mixer with wire whisk attachment, or a wire whisk to whip the whipping cream until frothy peaks form. Set aside.
PRO TIP: Freeze the bowl and whisk for a few minutes before whipping the cream. Cream whips best when it is cold, so using cold cream along with cold utensils will give you the best volume.
STEP TWO: Color the sweetened condensed milk with blue food coloring, adding a few drops at a time until it reaches the right shade of bright blue. If you are using vanilla extract, add it in this step.
STEP THREE: Slowly pour the colored sweetened condensed milk into the whipped cream and mix gently until just combined. If necessary, add a few more drops of food coloring.
STEP FOUR: Pour the mixture into a loaf pan, and gently press in the cookies.
STEP FIVE: Cover with plastic wrap freeze for at least 5 hours, or overnight.
STEP SIX: Serve with extra Mini Oreos and Mini Chips Ahoy.
IN THE FRIDGE: Do not refrigerate the finished recipe.
IN THE FREEZER: Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the freezer for up to a month.
This bright blue homemade Cookie Monster ice cream is the perfect dessert for a Sesame Street themed party, or any time you want to bring some fun to the table. Since it’s no-churn, it’s easy to whip up this creamy, crunchy, cookie treat anytime.
