Low Fat Cookies and Cream Ice Cream

Found a good low fat vanilla ice cream recipe, but since I'm not much of a plain vanilla person, I throw Oreos in.


1 cup sugar
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 1/2 cups fat free half and half
14 T. liquid egg product (like Eggbeaters)
1/4 t. salt
1 T. - good vanilla extract (*NO more!) -- I reduced the vanilla slightly and next time will probably cut it in half
Oreos - crushed (I like to keep them in fairly large pieces but it's a matter of preference)

Mix all ingredients together except Oreos. Pour into the freezer container - (paddle in place first). Freeze according to manufacturer's instructions. About 5-10 minutes before ice cream is ready, add the crushed Oreos. I used 16 Oreos with this mixture and found it to be just right for me...but I love a lot of Oreos in my ice cream.

Edit: Now that I'm eating it after it's sat in the freezer overnight, the vanilla extract taste has just shy of 1 T might not be so bad after all.
