Strawberry Ice Cream with Oreos

Jump to Recipe

One of our favorite ice cream recipes here on WGC got a makeover just in time for the long weekend. Strawberry Ice Cream with Oreo is the perfect end of summer treat we all deserve in our lives this weekend.

Strawberry Ice Cream with Oreo chunks mixed through in a loaf pan that's sitting on a pink and purple terrazzo tile counter with an ice cream scoop, two small white bowls, and fresh strawberries on the counter beside it.

Why I Love This Recipe

Strawberry Ice Cream with Oreos - HELLO MY CHILDHOOD DREAMS. I live for an incredible fresh strawberry ice cream. Add to that some oreos and we are in business. We used to make a version of this when I was a kid and I will forever be a fan. Ask my 2.5 year old child what kind of ice cream she wants and the answer is strawberry. So it only made sense that we brought back this old school WGC favorite just in time for any end of summer parties!

How to Make Strawberry Ice Cream with Oreo

Tips & Tricks

  • You need super in-season strawberries for this. None of the commercial ones that don't smell like strawberries - they will make the best ice cream - PROMISE!

FAQs

What is ice cream made out of?

A typical homemade ice cream is made of of Sugar, Whole Milk, Heavy Cream, sometimes eggs and flavorings! In this case, we're adding strawberries, oreos, a but of lemon to brighten things up and chocolate chips. But you can explore the ice cream section of WGC for tons of other flavor options

Is homemade ice cream better with or without eggs?

You can't go wrong with either way - the eggs make more of a custardy ice cream and need to be cooked! The recipe below doesn't use eggs and thus makes the recipe even easier and great for getting kids involved.

If you want an ice cream maker for any other recipes – here are a few of my favs.

  • This is the king of ice cream makers and really only needed if you’re making ice cream regularly! Also available here on Amazon
  • This one is slightly less expensive and requires no freezing of the insert so you can make batch after batch after batch no prob. 
  • This one we’ve had for years (got it as one of our wedding gifts) and it’s amazing! You just need to keep the insert in the freezer so make sure you have room. Also available here on Amazon.
