This simple, vegan banana ice cream with cookie dough recipe has chunks of cookie dough! You’ll never believe it’s a healthy, gluten dairy, and refined sugar free summer treat!
I know. I KNOW.
BUT, have you seen it filled to the BRIM with chewy, sweet vegan cookie dough bites that explode in all-your-childhood-happy-memories in EVERY. SINGLE. SCOOP?
That’s what I thought.
This is one of those recipes that you almost feel guilty about posting in internet land because it’s just… so… EASY. Did I just see your eyeballs light up?
I guess I just really <3 cookies in their pre-baked form of life. I know you FEEL ME.
But then this awful thing happened: I GREW UP. This means that it is no longer social acceptable to consume copious amounts of sweet cookie dough swirled up inside icy, velvety-smooth ice cream on the reg’. See also: my jeans would not be down for this to be a regular occurrence either.
BUT, did you know that you can eat a banana for breakfast and no one will give judgey side-eyes?
You know where I’m going here.
This ice cream is made from bananas + peanut butter = breakfast food.
ALSO,like the cookie dough vegan banana ice cream bars and vegan chickpea cookie dough bowls, the cookie dough balls are made from chickpeas. Chickpeas are used in a wide variety of lunch or dinner options. Which MEANS, we may be even be so bold to say this this healthy remake of the classic kid-food covers ALL the meals that your hungry mouth has to eat during the day.
I do have a few pro tips for you, so that you can go from being a said, cookie dough ice cream-less person that walks the earth à someone that you can find roaming the earth, healthy ice cream IN HAND at any given meal time during the day.
Uh, YES PUHLEASE.
TIP 1: the quality of owning a high-powered blender is a quality that you must possess.
I am not going to be held responsible for any-and-all bad things that happen if you try to put frozen bananas in a regular, old blender or food-processor type dealio. There may be smoke. And you’ll be sad about it. Also make sure you follow the steps in how to freeze bananas
TIP 2: Freeze your cookie dough bites pre-mixing into frosty banana yumminess.
This will prevent you from the not-so-pretty outcome of mushy blobs of smashed, random brown-food hanging out inside your ice cream. We’ve got cookie dough BITE goals friend. Let’s make that happen.
TIP 3: Roll 2 cookie dough bites, eat 1 cookie dough bite.
Yes, rolling cooking dough into 1/4-inch, tinnnnny little balls takes a few minutes. Eating a few on your rolling journey helps this immensely. *winky face.*
TIP 4: Drizzle vegan caramel sauce all over your ice cream to make it even MORE DELICIOUS.
Now that you’ve been prepped, primed and equipped with ALL the tools to make your cookie dough ice cream dreams a reality, be prepared to be scoopin’, lickin’ and lovin’ alllll day long.
Really. All day. Like you might just eat it ALL at O-N-E time.
We know the “6-8” serving size is realllllly just a suggestion.
