Welcome to the only vegan ice cream recipe you’ll ever need. Rich dark chocolate cookies and sweet, no-churn ice cream that contains zero refined sugars – all combined in a delicious ice cream sandwich? Yes, please!

Try giving up animal products for a day every so often to help our planet and benefit our food systems. With the population rising by around 30% over the next 30 years, the demand for meat at the current rate simply can’t be met.

Did you know, if you omitted meat for one meal, you’d save:

  • Enough carbon emissions to boil a kettle 388 times
  • The daily water usage of nine people
  • Up to 11g of fat
  • Up to 90 calories

Ingredients For Our Vegan Ice Cream Recipe

Makes: 4 ice cream sandwiches


1. Place a deep, lined baking tray into the freezer for at least 20 minutes

2. Place dates into a blender with 2-4 tbsp. hot water and process until a paste form. Set aside.

3. Next, pour off the liquid from the coconut cream (saving for other recipes). Add the now drained coconut cream to a mixing bowl and use an electric whisk to whip for 1-2 minutes.

4. Slowly add the date paste, milk, and FlavDrops while whisking until the mixture is fully incorporated

5. Pour the mixture into the lined baking tray. Allow to freeze for 3-4 hours then use a circular object like a cookie cutter or a glass to cut circles of ice cream, then place inside two cookies and place back into the freezer until you’re ready to devour!
