No-churn Cookies n’ Cream Ice Cream is so creamy and delicious you would never know its naturally sweetened with medjool dates, paleo, vegan and gluten-free!
Its finallllyyyy starting to feel like summer and you know what that means….. ICE CREAM!
Every time I hear that jolly jingle from the ice cream truck I immediately feel a sense of happiness. My ice cream of choice has to be one with chunks. That’s the only way to go in my book, all the chunks puhleaseeeee. Don’t get me wrong, I like plain vanilla bean but there is just something magical about the creaminess of the ice cream mixed with a different texture of some sort. I don’t discriminate but my top 3 picks have to be cookie dough, mint chocolate chip and cookies n’ cream.
So being the recipe creator I am, I just had to recreate my own version of cookies n’ cream ice cream made with real and whole ingredients that’s a piece of (ice cream) cake to make! When most people create ice cream recipes these days, they usually use bananas for natural sweetness, and yes, I do like banana ice cream but sometimes I want ice cream that doesn’t have a banana-y taste to it, yah feel me? So that’s why I used medjool dates to naturally sweeten this ice cream.
Medjool dates are so underrated these days! They are an all natural energy boost, contain 50% more potassium then a banana and are low-glycemic making them the perfect all-natural sweetener. I don’t just use any dates either, I use Natural Delights Organic Medjool Dates for the best tasting and highest quality dates the are grown without pesticides or additives.
Now let’s talk about this ice cream. Man, its super creamyyyyy that you would never believe its made without milk or cream! The creaminess comes from the full-fat coconut milk which gives it the most unreal texture. This ice cream is good on it’s own but homemade raw cookie crumbles take it to the next level to achieve the “oreo-like” perfection. This ice cream is also so darn easy to make and does not require an ice cream maker!
Ingredients for this easy peasy and delishhhh ice cream are:
Full-fat coconut milk
Natural Delights Medjool Dates (for ice cream and cookies)
