Vegan Cookie Dough Ice Cream
GLUTEN-FREE & SOY-FREE
This delicious cookie dough ice cream is a crowd favourite. Making your own vegan ice cream can feel daunting but I promise it’s pretty easy, especially if you follow my tips below!
TIPS ON MAKING COOKIE DOUGH ICE CREAM (VEGAN):
- If you don’t have an ice cream maker, you can just freeze the ice cream liquid in a container, sadly it will not be as smooth and creamy as churned ice cream but it’s also still good!
- For the creamiest ice cream, use a can of coconut cream at a store! If you can’t find coconut cream my best tip is to make coconut milk cookie dough ice cream! That’s right! You can get canned coconut milk and chill it in the fridge overnight for this recipe! You’ll get a hardened cream if you leave coconut milk in the fridge and you can scoop the hardened cream out of the can to use in the recipe. Keep the remaining coconut liquid for smoothies.

- Add coconut milk, sugar, vanilla and salt, and blend on High until very smooth and creamy.
