This cookie monster ice cream is a delicious blue colored vanilla based ice cream that is full of Oreo cookies, chocolate chip cookies, and edible cookie dough!
One of my favorite flavor combinations is Oreo cookies and cookie dough – I’ve got our Cookie Dough Stuffed Oreos to prove it. And I love getting a blizzard from DQ with Oreos and cookie dough – so wouldn’t it be delicious if I made a homemade ice cream with those flavors? Yes!!
This cookie monster ice cream is inspired by the beloved cookie monster, from Sesame Street, himself. The ice cream is a lovely blue color like cookie monsters fur, and since cookie monster loves his cookie we had to load this ice cream with three kinds of cookie treats.
It’s loaded with Oreo cookies, Chips Ahoy Cookies, and homemade edible cookie dough. This ice cream is for all cookie lovers!
What is the flavor of Cookie Monster Ice Cream?
The ice cream is a vanilla ice cream, turned blue with some gel food coloring. It’s loaded with chopped up Oreo cookies, chopped up chocolate chip cookies, and edible cookie dough bites.
Ingredients Needed to make Cookie Monster Ice Cream:
- whole milk
- heavy cream
- granulated sugar
- vanilla extract
- blue food coloring
- Oreo Cookies
- Chips Ahoy Cookies
- Cookie Dough
How to make Cookie Monster Ice Cream?
Add milk, cream, sugar, and vanilla extract, and food coloring to a large bowl and stir together for a couple minutes to help the sugar dissolve.
Pour the ice cream mixture into a 2qt ice cream maker, and allow it to run according to the manufactures directions.
Roughly chop Oreo cookies and Chips Ahoy Cookies with a knife.
Add a cup of each chopped Oreos, chopped Chips Ahoy, and cookie dough bites to the ice cream maker and let it run for another 3 to 5 minutes, until they are mixed throughout the ice cream.
Scoop the ice cream into a 9×5 bread loaf pan and smooth out the top. Cover the pan with plastic wrap and place it in the freezer to freeze solid for at least 6 hours, but I recommend overnight to make the ice cream scoopable.
How to make Cookie Monster Ice Cream without an Ice Cream Maker?
There are a lot of ways to make ice cream without an ice cream maker using a can, or some ziplock bags – but I’m gonna teach you how to make no churn cookie monster ice cream instead. For the best ice cream flavor, definitely follow the recipe below, but if don’t have an ice cream maker and still want to make this – here you go!
You need 2 cups heavy cream, 14oz sweetened condensed milk, 2 tsp vanilla, and blue food coloring, and the same amount of cookies and cookie dough as called for in the recipe below, 1 cup of each.
Whip the heavy cream in a large bowl until you have stiff peaks. Add the sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract, and food coloring and carefully fold them together so the whipped cream doesn’t loose all it’s fluffiness.
Fold in the chopped cookies, and cookie dough pieces. Scoop the mixture into a bread loaf pan and freeze pan in the freezer for at least 6 hours.
How to store Cookie Monster Ice Cream?
Cover any leftover ice cream with a lid, or plastic wrap and store in the freezer for up to 2 to 3 weeks. An airtight container will store it best. It won’t go bad (like it won’t make you sick) if kept longer than that, but it may start to crystalize and turn icy, so eat it within the first couple of weeks for best results.
Cookie Monster Ice Cream Mix-In Ideas:
- chocolate chips – especially mini chocolate chips
- chopped nuts – pecans or walnuts would be delicious
- homemade chocolate chip cookies – instead of Chips Ahoy, try chopping up some homemade chocolate chip cookies
- peanut butter cookies – try adding some peanut butter Chips ahoy, or homemade peanut butter cookies instead.
This homemade cookie monster ice cream is such a delicious ice cream flavor, that is perfect for all ice cream and cookie lovers! It’s delicious on it’s own, drizzled with hot fudge, or how perfect would it be in ice cream sandwich with two of your favorite chocolate chip cookies on each side.
Homemade ice cream is always a good idea, but especially when it’s such a fun bright blue color and loaded with homemade edible cookie dough and cookies!!

Hello! I would love to make this. How much blue food coloring should be used? I tried reading the recipe card as well as the blog post. This looks great!
Sorry I left that out, I think it was about 1/2 teaspoon or so? You should be able to see the color pretty well in the mixture, even though it’s not churned yet. So add a few drops and see what you like!
