No-Ice-Cream-Maker Funfetti Cake Batter Golden Oreo Ice Cream

I’m not usually a big ice cream eater. It’s fine, but I usually prefer cookies or bars for my empty calories.

Until I made this. It’s the best ice cream I’ve ever had.

I made it for my husband because unlike me, he is a ridiculously huge ice cream lover. It’s his thing. He loves, loves, loves ice cream.

We don’t tend to keep it in the house (his request) because he can’t trust himself around it.

However, he goes to the 24-hour Rite-Aid at 3am on ice cream runs at least 4 times a week. They have an in-store ice cream counter and he’s best friends with the graveyard shift employees.


So I decided to give him an early Father’s Day present in the form of pink sprinkles and creamy, homemade ice cream. I just didn’t think I’d be the one falling in love with it.


It’s full of chopped Golden Oreos, sprinkles, and tastes like Funfetti Cake Batter. No cake mix involved.

The flavoring secrets are a bit of almond extract, in conjunction with clear imitation vanilla extract.

Normally real vanilla extract is the way to go, but to create that classic, nostalgic, bakery-style cake batter taste, use the cheap stuff like I’ve mentioned before. Clear imitation is found next to real vanilla in the grocery store, usually for about one-third of the price.

This is a no-cook recipe. It’s a major time saver to avoid standing around whisking eggs, cream, and sugar together, then having to wait for them to cool.

The solution? A can of sweetened condensed milk. There are only two required ingredients to make it. Sweetened condensed milk and heavy cream.

Nor do you need an ice cream maker. I just recently got this Breville Smart Scoop Ice Cream Compressor from Sur La Table, but prior to that didn’t have one, and many of you may not have one either.

This recipe can be made in an ice cream maker if you have one (details in the recipe section), but it’s not necessary.

To make the ice cream, simply whip heavy cream to stiff peaks.

Then, fold in a mixture of sweetened condensed milk, almond, and vanilla extracts.

Fold means be gentle. Don’t stir like you’re mashing potatoes. Take your time so that you don’t deflate the puffiness. If you have an ice cream maker, the machine does this folding step for you.


Gently stir in cookies, sprinkles, and freeze it for at least 6 hours.

I dare you not to lick the bowl.


The ice cream freezes solid, but after 5 minutes at room temperature it’s easily scoopable. It’s similar to storebought ice cream and doesn’t turn ridiculously rock hard, an issue that can plague homemade ice cream. The photo below is before freezing for 6 hours.

This ice cream is soft, fluffy, and light. Light in texture, not in calories. Between the sweetened condensed milk, heavy cream, half a bottle of sprinkles, and 2 dozen Oreos, it’s not exactly diet food. But so worth it.


The flavor resembles sweetened, frozen whipped cream. This is not a bad thing. If you like buttercream frosting, real whipped cream or Cool Whip, or sweetened condensed milk, this is the ice cream for you. Since I love all those things, it’s definitely the ice cream for me.

It’s ridiculously creamy and rich. It’s like no ice cream I’ve ever tried. Maybe that’s why I love it. And my ice cream-loving husband polished off a generous pint in a sitting.


There’s an abundance of cookies and sprinkles in every bite. The sprinkles stay a bit crunchy while the cookies soften just slightly after being soaked in the rich, luscious, cream bath.

Although I used almond and vanilla extract, Golden Oreos, and sprinkles, my wheels are already turning with ideas of chocolate, peanut butter, Nutella, Cookie Butter, and cookie dough. My husband loves mint. I should make him mint chocolate chip.

Since I helped myself plenty to his Father’s Day gift.

No-Ice-Cream-Maker Funfetti Cake Batter Golden Oreo Ice Cream

This is the best ice cream I've ever had and it's the easiest to make with just two main ingredients - whipped cream and sweetened condensed milk. It's a no-cook recipe and the recipe is written to reflect making it with or without an ice cream maker. The ice cream is soft, fluffy, and tastes a bit like sweetened, frozen whipped cream. If you like buttercream frosting, whipped cream, or sweetened condensed milk, this is the ice cream for you. The sprinkles and chunks of cookies add texture to this ridiculously creamy and rich ice cream.

Yield: about 2 quarts

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 0 minutes

Total Time: 6+ hours, for chilling


24 Golden Oreos or vanilla-flavored sandwich cookies, coarsely chopped
one 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract
2 cups heavy whipping cream - for the No-Ice-Cream-Maker version (if using an ice cream maker, use 4 cups/1 quart)
3/4 cup+ sprinkles (I used 3 different kinds; two varieties of 'jimmies' and 1 non-pareils which are the little balls)


  1. These directions (through number 7) reflect the No-Ice-Cream-Maker method.
  2. Chop the cookies; set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, add sweetened condensed milk, vanilla, almond extract, and stir to combine; set aside.
  4. To the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment (or large mixing bowl and hand mixer; or lots of elbow grease doing it by hand), whip 2 cups heavy cream to very stiff peaks, about 5 minutes on high power.
  5. Gently add about half the whipped cream to the sweetened condensed milk mixture, and fold the cream in gently. Fold means turn the mixture over with a spatula from the bottom of the bowl up, rotate the bowl, repeat until the mixture is homogenous. The goal is to keep all that fluffy cream you just made as fluffy as possible. Take your time and be gentle. When you get the first half of the cream folded in and combined, add the remaining cream, and fold it until until mixture is smooth.
  6. Add the cookies, sprinkles, and gently fold them in to distribute evenly.
  7. Transfer ice cream mixture to a freezer-safe 2-quart container with a lid or freezer-safe bowl that can be covered with plasticwrap. Cover and freeze for at least 6 hours, or until solid. Ice cream takes about 5 minutes to come up to room temperature to scoop it out without having to wrestle with a rock. Ice cream will keep airtight in the freezer for up to 3 months.
  8. If you are Using an Ice Cream Maker - Steps 1, 2, 3 are the same. Skip steps 4 and 5. Instead, add 4 cups heavy cream to the sweetened condensed milk mixture, and stir to combine. Step 6 is the same. For step 7, follow processing directions on your ice cream maker, noting to chill the mixture if necessary before churning.

Do you make ice cream? With or without an ice cream maker?

Favorite ice cream flavor?

What’s your favorite ice cream?


  1. Ohmygosh. This is such a great recipe, especially for college kids (like me!) who are still stuck in dorms! SO easy to make and SO good!

  2. There are so many awesome things about this recipe, how do I list them all? I love that this is hardly any ingredients and is so incredibly easy to whip together. My family is so into ice cream right now and everyone loves different flavors and things so throwing different things into this would be a breeze! I am totally going to make this for them. Love that your hubby has an intimate relationship with the graveyard shift peeps at the local ice cream spot! :-)

    • and it’s not even an ice cream ‘spot’ – it’s…RiteAid. You know, what everyone thinks of when they think of ice cream :)

      hardly any ingredients and is so incredibly easy to whip together = YES! And since you guys already like ice cream, you have to LMK if you make this what you think!

  3. A dream come true ice cream recipe, Averie! Just beautiful. I adore Golden Oreos. The perfect mix-in for ice cream! Totally fabulous that you paired them with a quick and easy recipe for peeps. BRAVO! Already pinned to group boards at Pinterest! xo

  4. Averie your pictures get me every time. AMAZING colors
    oh, and I WISH I didn’t like ice cream :)

  5. I love sprinkles! This is looks so good! I just made funfetti cookies today for my kids but really is there an adult that doesn’t love sprinkles :).

    • I’ve been wanting to make funfetti cookies – there are so many recipes online and I have some ideas of my own. But I really want to make your soft-frosted sugar cookies! The pink frosting ones. They always catch my eye!

  6. Yeah I am pretty much crying because that funfetti cake batter looks like something I would like to dive head first into, right now!

  7. I’m like you, generally I prefer a cookie or brownie or some such over ice cream (and the boyfriend LOOOVES it and pretty much requires that I always have some in the freezer for him, and I use this same method of making ice cream for him :P) This totally looks bonkers, crazy, delicious, amazing!

    • Girl it’s the best ice cream Ive ever had and if your BF already likes ice cream, this will win you major brownie points and it’s as simple as whipping some cream!

  8. I wonder if this could be made with lite cool whip to make it lower in fat?

    • You could and it would be lower in fat, but it wouldn’t taste like ice cream in the real, whipped cream, creamy luscious ice cream way. It would taste like Cool Whip. I would make it as I wrote it and just realize it’s a treat and savor it :)

    • Becky Fangmann

      FYI, I used the two cups of whipping cream and then folded in two tubs of cool whip lite, it is still VERY good and went further, meaning less calories per serving…

  9. I just don’t even know how to tell you how amazing this looks!! I can’t wait to try it!!

  10. I am so excited about this recipe!!! I’m totally going to try it gluten free :-) Oh and I about died laughing that your hubby goes on 3AM ice cream runs!! Best friends with the graveyard shift workers…hilarious!

  11. A neat trick my grandmother used when making no-churn ice cream was adding 1 tablespoon of bourbon to the condensed milk mixture. The alcohol stops it from freezing so hard.

  12. we’ve got two things in common: men who love ice cream and a commitment to not keep it in the house :)
    Awesome recipe, can’t wait to try it!!

  13. My weakness! On one hand, I applaud you for sharing such a delicious sounding treat, but on the other hand, I am totally going to make this and eat it all up in seconds! Haha- but seriously!

    Dana Ivy – Check out my blog!!

  14. This sounds so good. I’m a sucker for anything with almond extract. P.S. I just got your cookbook. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. You did an amazing job and I can’t decide what to make first? I’m thinking the peanut butter cupcakes with some chocolate frosting?

  15. This is insane! I looove ice cream to death, and I would eat this in 5 minutes :)

  16. Oh how I wish I didn’t LOVE ice cream with a passion that borders on obsession. My thighs would be much happier in their skinny jeans haha. But I do love it, and I could eat 5 bowls of this amazing version you came up with!

  17. Isn’t this such an easy way to make ice cream?! I was floored at the ease when I first tried it myself. And here I thought I needed to drop some serious cash on an ice cream maker and rock salt! I mean, making this ice cream is basically like saving your money.

  18. This looks absolutely insane!! My husband is an ice cream nut too. It’s such a weakness for him. He would LOVE this. We recently had Blue Moon ice cream with the cake batter Oreos in it. SO GOOD! Pinning this!

  19. Cake batter, sprinkles and golden oreos together in ice cream?!? It’s a dream come true! Stunning photos!

  20. This is a party in a bowl! What a great ice cream. I actually just bought an ice cream maker. But I guess I could have made some great ice cream without it! I’ll have to try this soon. Pinned!

  21. That is so colorful and beautiful! I have never made ice cream with the cream and sweetened condensed milk, though I have seen it before and I NEED to try it. It looks so easy and my husband is also an ice cream addict. In fact that is what he ate for breakfast. Oy. Men.

    Definitely pinning this!

  22. Oh my….love, love, love this! Especially your use of PINK!!!

  23. hahahaha i am like your hubby love love love ice cream…thank goodness i don’t have a quick mart by me! i am so going to love the golden oreo cookie crumble pieces…those are the ones I will dig out and not share with the awful of me. LOL

  24. Holy shizz. My mouth dropped open in disbelief when I saw that this luscious, insanely creamy treat was made without an ice cream maker (yesssss! Because I have yet to shell out the money for one) and with so few ingredients. I need to try this. I’ve been meaning to make ice cream since last summer but have never gotten around to it. You’re inspiring me to take the plunge. Your photos are gorgeous as always, Averie.

  25. I love sooo many things about this. The sprinkles, of course, but mostly because it doesn’t require an ice cream maker…totally genius! Looks amazing, my friend!

  26. Ooh, ooh! I made your ice cream this week!! I didn’t use sprinkles (the men in the house are unfortunately not fans…why?!) and I was a little unsure about it before I put it in the freezer, but once it firmed up?! It really is pretty magical. The almond flavoring balances so well with the imitation vanilla (I felt like an imposter buying that, by the way!). Definitely yummy. :)

    • I am so glad you made this and your men are crazy for not liking sprinkles, but hey, more for us who do, right :) Anyway, thanks for LMK you tried this and coming back to comment! I appreciate it, Dana!

  27. Oh my word! This does look like the best bowl of ice cream EVER! Too perfect :)

  28. Nice bowl ;) And this ice cream looks pretty darn good too! I just had my first golden oreo a few weeks ago. Very tasty!

  29. ahh summer, let us raise our spoons/cones to ice cream! have you tried making protein fluff ice cream with casein protein powder? love all ur recipes, lookin forward to what else you whip up ;)

  30. I tried this recipe both ways, and the no-ice cream- maker way was definitely better. The ice cream maker version did not have as much flavor, and it was not as fluffy after freezing. Nonetheless, excellent recipe! So much better than store bought, and with such simple ingredients. Thanks for sharing!

    • Wow, that’s great to know you tried it both ways and preferred the NON ice cream maker version! More power to all of us who don’t have one (or don’t want to lug it out) to simply make the non-ice cream maker version! Love it when the easier/simpler/cheaper ways or methods or things turn out to be the better one.

      I have another ice cream recipe coming up either this week or next. Can’t decide when I should post it. But it’s crazzzzzy good. Stay tuned :)

  31. Wow it looks divine!!! I’m tempted to sneak out to the store now and get the ingredients!!

  32. Just entered for your awesome giveaway with the cute little food processors (perfect for my tiny college apartment!!) & definitely making this for my not only ice cream obsessed but CAKE BATTER ice cream obsessed boyfriend! Can’t wait to get off work and get all of the ingredients! Love that you don’t need an ice cream maker! Definitely on my wish list but not on a college budget! :)

  33. I just saw this on pinterest, and although I don’t have golden oreos, I’m just going to make it with sprinkles. This pregnant lady will be very happy in 6 hours :)

    • It’s *so good*!!! Enjoy! Do you have any random Xmas cookies laying around? Chop those up and toss them in. Anything you have from graham crackers to old cookies to random candy bar bits leftover from Halloween…just throw it all in. It can’t hurt, can only help :) LMK what you think!

    • It is sooo good!!! I have to make sure to limit myself :) I ended up just doing sprinkles and I still loved it…just thinking of how I could add peppermint instead of vanilla/almond and maybe try that too! It’s so easy that any mix in would be fabulous!!! Thanks so much! None of your recipes have disappointed yet!

    • So glad you like it, even with just sprinkles! Try it with cookies sometime – you will be in heaven! Omg SUCH a huge difference! The texture, flavors, oh You HAVE to! :) And yes to peppermint this time of year, especially!

  34. Made this yesterday it is by far the most amazing ice cream I have ever had!!! I can’t believe how fast and easy it was to make either! Thank you Thank you Thank you for this awesome recipe!!!

    • Thanks for trying it & I agree with you that it’s pretty much the most amazing ice cream I’ve ever had and I’m not even ‘that’ into ice cream. Glad you’re a big fan!

  35. Beautiful photography! This ice cream recipe looks so fun and bright! We had to include it in our Feature Friday post for Ice Cream Recipes today! Would love for you to check it out!

  36. This lookes sooo amazing I decided to try making double receipe for my Grandaughters 19th birthday, and since my ive cream maker was out of commision it was perfect. It turned out that using 48 cookies made it so sweet we couldn’t eat it. Any ideas on how to tone it down a bit and save all those yummy ingredients? or is it destined for the garbage. (hope not) Thank you for all your great ideas!

    • I’ve never doubled it but yes, it IS sweet ice cream, but maybe doubling the cookies was just a little much. You could always mix a half scoop of this in with your normal vanilla ice cream, and eat as a combo and that will tone this down a bit for you. Or a sprinkle of salt sometimes can counteract sweetness.

  37. Hello Mrs. Averie!!

    I’m a 14 year old girl and an absolute HUGE fan of all your recipes!!! I can’t wait to try this out, but I have a few questions:

    1. Would it be alright to make this without the vanilla and almond extract? I’m currently out and my dad can’t wait for me to make this, so would it be alright if I omitted them? Would the absence of it greatly affect the taste?

    2. Is it ok to use the just the ordinary (dark/black) oreos instead of the golden ones?

    Thank you so much for the amazing recipes!!! 

  38. Thank you so much!!!! :D
