No Churn Cookie Dough Ice Cream 

It’s the season for healthy no-churn ice cream recipes here. We’ve had vanilla no-churn ice cream, peanut butter no-churn ice cream and even coconut no-churn ice cream.

After making a batch of flourless keto chocolate chip cookies, I needed to make it the star of my next ice cream recipe! 

A smooth coconut milk ice cream base with chunks of cookie dough mixed through, it’s smooth, creamy and has the BEST texture! Imagine chunks of cookies in every single bite…you won’t believe it’s keto and low carb. Not only that, it’s paleo, vegan, gluten-free, dairy free and even nut-free!

What kind of cookie dough is in ice cream?

Traditional cookie dough ice cream tends to use actual chunks of raw edible cookie dough.

After trying it out this way, I found that adding some edible eggless cookie dough made the ice cream super thin, so instead, we will use pre-made cookie pieces broken throughout.

Healthy Cookie Dough Ice Cream Ingredients 

Making this no churn cookie dough ice cream recipe is so easy and needs just 4 ingredients

  • Coconut Milk
  • Almond Butter 
  • Keto Maple Syrup
  • Pre-made healthy chocolate chip cookies

Coconut Milk

Be sure to use full-fat canned coconut milk (not from a carton). This will ensure the mixture will be smooth and creamy. 

Almond Butter (and substitutions!)

Using almond butter yields a mild and rich flavor, without an overpowering nutty taste. You can also substitute it for cashew butter.

Peanut butter can also be used, but it will have an overpowering peanut flavor. 

Keto Maple Syrup (and substitutions!)

Using keto maple syrup ensures the recipe is keto-friendly, low carb and sugar free.

If you don’t follow a strict ketogenic diet, you can use pure maple syrup or agave nectar

Chocolate Chip Cookie Chunks

Adding chunks of cookies into the ice cream gives it the delicious chocolate chip cookie dough flavor.

You can use any chocolate chip cookie of choice, like the BEST healthy chocolate chip cookies or even flourless sugar free cookies

How to make no churn cookie dough ice cream

  • Place a freezer friendly container or loaf pan in the freezer to chill
  • In a high-speed blender or food processor, combine your ingredients, except for the cookie chunks, and blend well. Be sure to regularly scrape down the sides. 
  • Using a rubber spatula, fold through the broken cookie pieces. Transfer the ice cream mixture into the chilled container/loaf pan. Place the mixture into the freezer.
  • For the first hour, stir the ice cream mixture every 10-15 minutes. This ensures the ice cream doesn’t become super icy.
  • After the ice cream has set for 2-3 hours, remove and allow to thaw for 25-30 minutes. Once thawed slightly, use a slightly wet ice cream scoop and scoop into bowls. 

How long does No Churn Cookie Dough Ice Cream last?

No Churn cookie dough ice cream will keep for at least a week. The ice cream is best enjoyed fresh and refreezing it too often will yield to hard and icy ice cream.

Can you use an ice cream maker? 

Making no churn cookie dough ice cream in an ice cream maker will work very well. 

To make cookie dough ice cream in an ice cream maker, follow the same direction as the no-churn version. Instead of freezing for 3 hours, allow to firm up for about 45 minutes.

After 45 minutes, transfer to the ice cream maker and churn completely. Freeze for an hour, or until the ice cream has firmed up. 

How to make nut-free cookie dough ice cream

Easily make this healthy cookie dough ice cream nut-free! Simply replace the almond butter with either sunflower seed butter or tahini. Also, ensure the cookies used are nut-free (like these ones!).

Tips and Tricks for PERFECT No Churn Cookie Dough Ice Cream

  • Ensure you stir the mixture in the freezer for the first hour, to ensure it doesn’t freeze up into an ice block.
  • Avoid re-freezing previously thawed out ice cream, as the texture will spoil and be too hard.
  • If your ice cream mixture becomes too dense, once it has thawed slightly, you can re-blend it and enjoy it soft-serve style. 
  • To ensure the ice cream is loaded with cookie chunks, feel free to prepare the ice cream without the cookies mixed in and simply top the ice cream with it afterward!
