DIY // Healthy Cookie Dough Blender Ice Cream

healthycookiedoughicecream1

If you've been reading this blog, you will know that I have a serious sweet tooth. But you will also know how much I love healthy desserts! After my Healthy Chocolate Blender Ice Cream I've been thinking of ways to make a healthy cookie dough ice cream. It's one of my favorite flavors, and this is the perfect substitute. The best part about this recipe is that it is made in your blender (or food processor) and that it is SO easy, as well as vegan and gluten free. And honestly, the cookie dough bites make a great snack on their own! This is life changing, seriously.

Ingredients & Supplies;
Food Processor or Blender
For the Ice Cream;
Vanilla Almond Milk (I used sweetened)
Optional, spoonful of honey and/or peanut butter
Ice Cube Tray
For the 'Cookie Dough';
2 tablespoons of raw cashews
1/3 cup raw oats
2 tablespoons Vanilla Almond Milk
2 tablespoons 100% pure maple syrup
(honey (not vegan) or agave (unprocessed & vegan) work as well)
1/3 cup medjool dates ( I used 4, pitted and soaked in warm water for 5 min.)
2 squares of ghirradelli 70% dark chocolare
This recipe makes 12 cookie dough bites, and one mason jar full of vanilla blender ice cream.

Steps;
For the Cookie Dough;
-Blend your Cashews and Oats until they have a flour like consistency.
-Add the maple syrup (or other liquid sweetener) and almond milk. Blend.
-Add the dates and blend until a sticky paste.
-Transfer mixture to a bowl
-On a cutting board chop up the chocolate.
-Fold Chocolate into cookie dough mixture.
-Using wet hands roll mixture into balls, place on parchment and freeze for 3 hours (at least).
(after one hour in the freezer I rolled again, to make the cookie dough more photogenic)
For the Ice Cream;
-Pour your Vanilla Almond Milk into your Ice Cube Tray and freeze thoroughly
(One tray of Vanilla Almond Milk Cubes = one mason jar full (standard, 1 pint size))
-Transfer cubes to blender or food processor and blend until you have a frothy consistency.
-You can add honey and/or peanut butter to sweeten it and to make it smooth.
-Serve your cookie dough bites and vanilla ice cream together in a mason jar & enjoy!

  3. What consistency is the ice cream?

    1. Sort of like a soft serve ice cream rather than a hard ice cream, or a really really really REALLY thick milkshake.
