If you have ever stood in front of the ice cream freezers at the grocery store on a hot summer day and tried to decide which flavor was the most appealing to you, then you know the possibilities of flavor combinations are really endless.

For the sake of making a decision, we are making our recipe today with a combination of homemade churned vanilla ice cream loaded with three kinds of our favorite cookies crumbled and mixed in. It may be a little bit like when you were a child and made one of those soda fountain drinks by mixing every flavor and you loved it. Are you still doing that?

Do you remember the Sonic cookie jar shake from a few summer’s ago? So Sonic and Dairy Queen have nothing on us! We are using similar cookies for our ice cream mix-in’s; Oreo, Nutter Butter and Chewy Chips Ahoy Chocolate Chip cookies. Get ready for an ultimate summer treat for your family, without going to a restaurant. The best part, it’s a simple recipe.
