loaf of ice cream bread on cutting board

Did you know you can make bread from ice cream?! Sun a fun recipe idea!

Instead of making the same ole’ banana bread, consider baking a loaf or two of yummy ice cream bread! I love this quick bread idea because it features just three main ingredients – ice cream, self-rising flour, and sugar.

It’s an easy recipe anyone can do, and it’s so fun to think about which flavor to use or add-ins for the top of the loaf.

I decided to test out two different flavor combos to see which one we would like best.

I paired the vanilla ice cream with rainbow sprinkles for one of the bread loaves. This one tastes quite similar to shortbread. I bet a slice with some fresh strawberries and whipped cream would be so delicious!

The other loaf I baked using cookies and cream ice cream with some crushed Oreo cookies on the top. Oh man… this one is so GOOD! I mean bread that tastes like Oreos? YES!


I made a video to show how easy it is to make ice cream bread!

When making ice cream bread, keep these tips in mind –

    • You can pretty much pick whichever flavor ice cream you’d like on this idea and any add-ins that sound good. I have read that frozen yogurt and non-dairy ice creams won’t work as well or even at all, so keep that in mind.
    • My Hip sidekick, Jenna, baked this recipe using strawberry ice cream and sprinkles and loved that yummy combination!
    • Make sure to let your ice cream soften and become almost room temp, and then measure out 2 cups. It will make the batter easier to mix and create a lighter texture.
    • Don’t have self-rising flour? The recipe to make your own self-rising flour is 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.

This ice cream bread turned out awesome!

I loved both flavors, however, the vanilla sprinkle loaf is noticeably less sweet. It’d be a great basis for a sundae with maybe more ice cream or whipped cream on top. My family taste-tested them both, and the Oreo with cookies & cream combo loaf came out the clear winner! Yum!

This would be such a fun activity to do with the kids this summer at home. Enjoy!

    Thank you! Have not heard of this, and I know my kids will love it! Getting hungry just thinking about it😂 As always, you’re the best Lina!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      It’s fun! Thanks for stopping by Rebecca!

  2. FosterMomsNeverHaveEmptyNestSyndrome

    Any guess at a keto version? Rebel ice cream, coconut flour, stevia?? Maybe?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Hmm I did see some keto versions if you search keto ice cream bread – looks like almond flour, erythritol, baking powder, a pint of keto ice cream. I haven’t tried yet, so don’t want to vouch for sure – but it seems possible!

    • Its ok

      I’ve just only heard of Rebel ice cream for keto diet….how is the taste?

      • Mel

        Rebel is the BOMB!! Tastes just like real sugar ice cream. I love the coffee chip. For a treat, I get vanilla and blend it with keto lemonade to make Lina’s copycat Chick Fil A Frosted Lemonade.

  3. jennifer

    I appreciate the creativity here but thus seems like a waste of good ice cream!! 🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦😋

    • Gramma C

      That’s what I’m thinking. Just why???

      • tiredday

        I bought some Costco ice cream I don’t like. For the calories I should just stick with Blue Bell. Totally use the Costco ice cream for this!!!!

    • sne3103

      Me too! I mean, the goal should be to make ice cream from bread 😂

      • Amanda

        Hahaha thank you for the laugh!!

      • jennifer

        😂😂😂

    • Nancy

      I used a peach ice cream that nobody in my house liked. They really enjoyed it this way.

      • Diane

        Tillamook Peach ice cream is AMAZING

      • jennifer

        That’s a good idea Nancy thanks. We usually end up with one or two duds over the course of the summer that no one likes!

    • MommySpendsLess

      I was thinking the same thing, especially since a box of cake mix is cheaper than ice cream. But if you bought it for a special occasion or on impulse and don’t want it tempting you in the freezer this would be a useful way to get rid of it (although I doubt the bread/cake version would be much healthier). Or if you bought a flavor and don’t care for it… or if you have a bunch left over after a birthday party…
      I was wondering who thought of this originally. I can’t imagine poking around in my fridge/freezer looking for a snack and thinking “Oooh, ice cream! I know, I’ll add some flour to it!” LOL

  4. nita

    What will they think of next! 👏

  5. BURNS Lisa

    Sounds like an excuse to eat cake without labeling it so 😜

    • Valerie0408

      😆

  6. mcs137x

    OMG looks so good!! Thank you

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yay thanks for stopping by!

  7. Brit

    These recipes are so easy and fun to make with kids! If you get some Walmart ice cream, the whole container is under $2 and have plenty of kid approved flavors. Generic sprinkles and maybe splurge on genuine Oreos. Overall, seems affordable and easy enough to try. The Depression area vanilla cake was a bit, found on H2S as well and the kids would also add sprinkles to it. Thanks so much Lina for some affordable baking ideas👏

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Ahhh yay I’m so glad to hear about the cake as well! Thanks Brit!

    • MrsK

      Our Walmart ice cream is $2.97 for 48 ounces.

      • Brit

        Ours is $1.98 different areas. So thankful too, because Breyers is sitting under $5 at our Walmart.

  8. poojagarg

    I will be trying this with avi for sure

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      So fun- enjoy!

  9. Karen G.

    Been making this for years, I omit the extra sugar. Used strawberry rhubarb Blue Bunny ice cream today! Yummy

  10. Tiff

    I love watching EMMYMADE make things like this on youtube. She is so cute.

  11. Lisa

    This looks like it’s be fun to do with grandkids! Thanks for the idea!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes enjoy!
