Vegan cookie dough nice cream is thick, creamy, and full of cookie dough balls! This entire bowl is made with just 4 healthy ingredients, and totally fruit sweetened.
If you aren’t vegan, you might not be familiar with banana nice cream. Freeze bananas, and blend with a little water or plant milk, and you’ll soon understand the hype. It creates the creamiest, dreamiest concoction that’s as good as ice cream when it comes to flavor and texture. Plus, no animal cruelty, which makes it infinitely better, right?! Oh, and no horribly unhealthy crap, either.
So many wins, all while you get to eat gobs of cookie dough in nice cream!!
I had a craving for some nice cream and realized I haven’t made a traditional ice cream-inspired recipe in awhile. After some brainstorming, I couldn’t get cookie dough off my mind. I loooove chunkage (word? It is now) in my nice creams, so I decided some cute lil cookie dough balls were in order. So, this vegan cookie dough nice cream was born. And all in the Grandominico household were very, very happy.
The best part about this vegan cookie dough nice cream is it’ll probably take you less than 15 minutes to put together! For the cookie dough balls, throw some oats and dates into the food processor until a thick dough forms, mix in some chocolate chips, and roll into little balls. For the nice cream, blend up some frozen bananas with a tiny bit of liquid – I use as little as possible to get it to blend together, so it’s super, super thick!
Mix the cookie dough balls into the nice cream and enjoy! I’d eat it immediately because it gets a little too frosty for my liking when you re-freeze it.
This vegan cookie dough nice cream is SO simple and healthy, but you’ll feel like you’re enjoying a decadent treat. The cookie dough balls are so sweet and rich, and that combined with the ultra creamy banana nice cream is such a perfect combination. I can’t wait to have this regularly when the warm weather is here to stay!
Have a happy, healthy day!
