Cookie Dough Ice Cream

Let’s face it.  We all want to indulge from time to time.  I mean, who doesn’t like ice cream, especially cookie dough ice cream?  Problem is, most store bought brands are laden with chemicals and processed sugars.  Even the organic ones.  It’s hard to find one that doesn’t contain carrageenan, which is a possible carcinogen.  So I created this little treat for you.

It was 80 degrees today in Texas and I broke out my ice cream maker for the first time in months.  If you don’t have an ice cream maker, I highly suggest getting one.  It is so much cheaper to make your own ice cream.  This recipe couldn’t be easier.  It’s dairy free, soy free, can be made gluten free and free of refined sugars.  For the cookie dough part, I used my No Bake Cookie Dough Bites and rolled them into tiny balls.  You will have some extra left over, but I promise they are delicious!

Prep Time 20 min



  1. Make sure you have had the ice cream bowl frozen for at least 18 hours. It has to be good and cold. I made the cookie dough ahead of time and had it chilling in the fridge.
  2. Pour all the ingredients except the cookie dough into the ice cream machine .
  3. Turn the machine on. It will take about 15 minutes.
  4. When the mixture starts to look like it is coming together and almost done, add in the cookie dough.
  5. Stop as soon as it looks like soft serve ice cream.
  6. If you wish for a harder ice cream, you can put the ice cream in a bowl and stick it in the freezer for about 15 minutes. That’s it!

  1. Could you use agave nectar or raw honey in place of the maple syrup? I have both of those on hand, just curious. My kids have been asking for homemade ice cream lately and this sounds like an easy recipe!
    1. It's so worth it! You make your money back in just a few recipes. Plus, you can create all kinds of yummy flavors!
    1. If you do dairy, whole milk would do. I have tried with almond milk, but it doesn't come out quite as dense as it should.
  2. Hi, just made this ice cream and the cookie dough. It turned out great! Everyone loved it. It was super easy. Thanks so much!
  3. This is genius! I love that you use coconut milk. I've attempted to make ice cream healthier and have lots of failures…this one looks so creamy and delicious. I can't wait to make it!
    1. Thank you! I hope you enjoy it! I have tried with almond and hemp milk, but both were lacking that velvety mouth feel that real ice cream has. The coconut milk works perfect!
  4. Is there a way to do this without using an ice-cream maker? Don't feel comfortable using it because of the aluminum freezer bowl (it's not stainless-steel). All sorts of health problems relating to aluminum (Alzheimer, breast cancer, etc). Thanks.
    1. I've made small amounts by putting 1/2 inch layer in a sandwich bag and laying it on the freezer floor -my tiny freezer has a metal bottom so you could lay the baggie on any piece of metal and put that in the freezer.
  5. What brand of ice cream maker do you use. I have never tried to make my own and want to buy a good one. I am trying to eat smarter and this recipe will help with my sugar cravings :)
  6. We just made this, cookie dough and all. It was so yummy and came together so quick (even with my 2yr and 5yr old helping (; Delicious!! We will be making this again very soon (: Thank you!!
  7. This looks delicious! I see that many recipes on the whole foods sites that I want to make call for maple syrup. I'm allergic to maple and can't eat anything that has it in it. What is a healthy alternative in recipes that would work the same as the maple syrup?
