Accidental Oreo Ice Cream

What you need: 

1 box Oreo Jell-O Pudding Mix (not instant)
2 cups soy milk, *cold* (vanilla or regular will work)

What you do: 

This recipe is for you only if you do the refined-sugar thing. The Oreo pudding mix is vegan up until refined sugar. It's made by Jell-O but doesn't contain gelatin.
I am a notorious failure at making pudding. At an attempt to rescue my most recent project, I accidentally made Oreo ice cream. Hope you enjoy :)
Here's what you do: Pretend like you're going to make this into pudding. Follow the directions on the box, using your 2 cups soymilk. It may not thicken at all, like mine. Good.
Now divide up the failed pudding (or successful, if you're lucky) into four little dishes. Put them in the freezer, and stir them up every five minutes.
It takes a while, but it will get to ice cream consistency, I swear. And it tastes delicious :)
I guess you could use an ice cream maker for this, but I don't have one. Works fine this way.

Jell-o brand does not make Oreo pudding cook and serve, only instant. So did this recipe actually use the instant/pie filling?

the brand-name oreos are not, at least not in america, because they contain whey. but most, if not all, of other brands of oreo-type cookies are vegan.

Not true. American Oreos do not contain whey and are vegan. Oreos from other countries usually contain whey and are not vegan - check ingredients.

I've actually discovered this method of making ice cream myself. I added extra chopped up Oreos, and I stirred about every half hour for about 3 hours. It was creamy and stayed soft in the freezer.

The thing about pudding mixes designed for dairy milk is that you have to use a lot less nondairy milk to get a pudding texture (eyeball it - I think I used to use about a cup of soy milk per box; it called for 4 cups of dairy milk), but this makes a normal serving size contain more calories and sugar - but I've still done it when I was feeling lazy. I still prefer making my own pudding from scratch using a recipe that's designed to be vegan.

To keep your recipe from freezing rock solid. After you have stirred it a few times in the freezer and it begins to become like soft serve texture, add 2 tablespoons of vodka. The alcohol will prevent the mixture from freezing too hard. This also works great in sorbets!

Apparently Jell-O pudding mix will not set with soymilk because setting has something to do with the fat content... this probably explains why coconut milk works so well.

I realized the not-setting point after my poor attempt at oreo pudding =( hence I tried freezing it.

just a pudding fyi. soymilk and other non cow milks will not set up with pudding.  Something about the proteins in milk let it set up with the pudding mix.  There are pudding mixes out there specifically for soy milk, but JELLO isn't one of them.

I disagree. I've successfully made jello pudding with coconut milk :P and it was YUM.
