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.*
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.
