You don’t need an ice cream maker to churn a batch of this delicious ice cream! Packed with Cookie Butter, rich and creamy, this is an ice cram that you will love.
Apparently no-churn ice cream is a thing, a big thing. This might be the most dangerous fact I’ve ever learned. In the past I’ve nearly broken an old ice cream maker in frustration. I had no idea how easy it would be to make the real deal sans fancy machine. Seriously, you whip some cream, combine it with a sweetened condensed milk / flavor mixture and freeze for a few hours. I actually stopped myself from buying more than one large container of heavy whipping cream at Costco on Saturday for fear of my baby turning into a giant ice cream cone.
Luckily I did have some help from Matt in eating this batch of Cookie Butter Ice Cream. Infused with cookie butter AND speculoos crumbs, it is heavy on the cookie butter flavor in a very good way. I used it for ice cream sundaes (recipe coming later this week), a fruit crumble (recipe also coming soon) and Matt made a couple of milkshakes (just some skim milk and ice cream blended together). Part of me wants to make this recipe over and over again throughout the summer, but I have too many other flavors I’m dying to try. Although, I would love to have a giant scoop of this ice cream stuffed into these cookies. Um, how many weeks away is my glucose test?
- 475 milliliters (2 cups) heavy cream
- 1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk (I used fat free, but any type would work)
- 200g (~1/2 cup) Cookie Butter (or other speculoos of choice)
- 84g (~2/3 cup) finely ground speculoos cookies (approximately 10 cookies)
- 5 milliliters (1 teaspoon) vanilla extract
- In the large bowl of an electric mixer with whisk attachment, beat cream on high speed for several minutes, just until stiff peaks form
- While whipping cream, in a separate large bowl, stir together remaining ingredients
- Once cream is ready, fold it into Cookie Butter mixture
- Pour ice cream into a regular-sized loaf pan and wrap well with seran wrap or tin foil
- Freeze for 6 hours or overnight

This looks delicious! Thank you so much for sharing an ice cream recipe where you don’t need an ice cream machine! I adore cookie butter and see so many delicious ice cream recipes that I can’t make until I get a machine!
Thanks, Annie! It was SO easy. I have an old ice cream maker that I really don’t like so this method is perfect for me.
Yay for cookie butter ice cream! This looks great!
So….this is dangerous. But in the best way. Cookie butter addict IN DA HOUSE.
I’ve made no churn ice cream once or twice and was pleased with the results. I actually made a churned speculoos cheesecake ice cream a long time ago but it was a bit too hard. I should try this next time!
Ohhhhh the speculoos cheesecake version sounds so good!
omgosh isn’t it the most glorious, dangerous thing??? I LOVE this recipe you’ve come up with-soooo much cookie butter goodnesss!! (and omg the idea of it sandwiched between those cookies? dying.)
I saw the cookie butter in Costco last week !

What is cookie butter?
I laughed at your musing about your glucose test because mine is tomorrow and I will definitely have to make this over the weekend to celebrate, hehe. Thanks for sharing!
Oh good luck!! Hopefully it will come back fine and you can eat as much cookie butter ice cream as you would like:-)
I have a jar of cookie butter on reserve because it is so hard to find in Canada, so this looks like the perfect way to break it open!
I love no-churn ice creams! This one sounds fantastic!
This is dangerous!! Like really dangerous.
This ice cream. Looks incredible. I just recently tried cookie butter for the first time in my life. and wow. life changed.

I love the no ice cream churn ice cream. I love cookie butter even more. This recipe is made for me.
What are speculoos cookies??
They are a combination of gingersnaps and graham crackers. Regular super markets usually sell them under the brand Biscoff.
