Extra creamy vanilla ice cream is loaded with chocolate sandwich cookies for a delicious summer dessert! You won’t believe this cookies and cream ice cream is dairy free and vegan!
What was your favorite ice cream flavor when you were growing up? I had a few favorites…chocolate chip, moose tracks, chocolate chip cookie dough, and cookies and cream ice cream were all up there as favorite flavors.
And if we were headed to Dairy Queen, well, it was a cookies and cream Blizzard that I ordered, pretty much every single time. So of course I needed to remake my childhood favorite in my ice cream maker here at home.
This was such an easy flavor to recreate! I used coconut milk and maple syrup, and crumbled in some chocolate sandwich cookies, and that was all there was to it. But the result was SO good. The texture of this cookies and cream ice cream reminded me of a Blizzard.
You will need to decide what type of chocolate sandwich/oreo cookies to get based on your dietary needs. Actual oreos are vegan, as are some different brands. I like the kinnikinnick brand – those are gluten free.Delicious and decadent #dairyfree and #vegan cookies and cream ice cream! Click To Tweet
