Creamy cookie monster ice cream filled with chunks of Oreo and chocolate chip cookies is a hit with all cookie-loving kids and adults!
Blue Cookie Monster Ice Cream
What is cookie monster ice cream? Sweet vanilla ice cream is absolutely loaded with cookie chunks to create this ice cream. It’s cookie monster’s version of cookies and cream ice cream and it has been a win with everyone who tries it.
Not a fan of food dyes? Just skip the blue coloring. The ice cream tastes every bit as delicious with or without it.
I highly recommend serving this ice cream in cones, preferably Oreo or chocolate chip cookie ice cream cones if you can find them in the grocery store, for the ultimate cookie monster ice cream flavor!

Cookie Monster Ice Cream Recipe
Whisk together the cream, milk, sugar, salt, and vanilla. Add blue food coloring and adjust the color, as desired. Whisk again to combine.
Pour the mixture into your ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer’s directions. While the ice cream is churning, chop each cookie into 4 pieces.
Scatter 1 cup of cookie pieces in the bottom of a freezer-safe container. When the ice cream has finished churning, scoop half the ice cream over the cookies in the container, sprinkle the ice cream with 1 cup of cookie pieces.
Spread the remaining ice cream across the container and top with the remaining cup of cookie pieces. Freeze until firm.
These are my favorite inexpensive containers for storing ice cream. They’re perfect for gifting (who doesn’t love homemade ice cream?) storage, re-using, etc. I write the flavors on the lids with a sharpie and it washes off with dish soap.
I have more ice cream scoops than I can keep track of at this point and I definitely play favorites. This ice cream scoop does the best job ever of cutting through firm ice cream and still delivers a pretty scoop. It gets bonus points for being one of the least expensive scoops I own as well.
