Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

  • 1 1/4 cups whole milk
  • 2 cups frosted animal cookies, crushed, divided
  • 1 tablespoon cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream

TOPPINGS (optional)

  • Frosted animal cookies, as desired
  • Sprinkles, as desired
  • Step 1

    In a medium bowl, combine the milk and 1 cup crushed cookies. Let mixture sit for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally so that the cookie flavor infuses the milk.

  • Step 2

    In a large microwave-safe bowl, add the cream cheese and microwave for 10 seconds. Add the granulated sugar and vanilla extract and with a whisk or rubber spatula, combine until mixture is smooth. Set aside.

  • Step 3

    After 30 minutes, pour the milk and cookie mixture through a fine-mesh strainer over the bowl with the cream cheese mixture. Gently press down on the cookies to release all the milk, then discard the soaked cookies. Add heavy cream to bowl and whisk until well combined.

  • Step 4

    Pour base into an empty CREAMi Pint. Place storage lid on pint and freeze for 24 hours. 

  • Step 5

    Remove pint from the freezer and remove lid from pint. Place pint in outer bowl, install Creamerizer Paddle onto outer bowl lid, and lock the lid assembly on the outer bowl. Place bowl assembly on motor base and twist the handle right to raise the platform and lock in place.  

  • Step 6

    Select ICE CREAM. 

  • Step 7

    With a spoon, create a 1 1/2-inch-wide hole that reaches the bottom of the pint. Add remaining crushed cookies to the hole and process again using the MIX-IN program. 

  • Step 8

    When processing is complete, remove ice cream from pint and serve immediately with desired toppings. Enjoy!
