Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream

[donotprint] Rumor has it on the twitterverse that it was National Ice Cream Day over the weekend. Clearly my ice cream intuition was high, because I made not one but two new (to me) flavors, since my mom has been asking me to whip her up a batch of my homemade ice cream.

My dad’s favorite flavor is coffee, and my mom likes anything with ooey, gooey, chocolaty chunks in it. I started with a full batch of “vanilla” ingredients, divided it in half, and created two different varieties. [/donotprint]

For my dad’s coffee ice cream:

2 cans light coconut milk

1 cup strong coffee, cold

1/2 cup sugar

1tsp vanilla

pinch of salt

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl and let sit in the fridge for a few hours or overnight, and then follow the manufacturer’s instructions for your ice cream maker. Because the coffee contains no fat, the ice cream turned out slightly more watery (think: a mixture between ice cream and sorbet) but it had that rich, creamy coffee flavor. If you love iced coffee and ice cream on a hot summer day, this flavor is for you.

For my mom’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough:

2 cans light coconut milk

1/2 cup sugar

4 chocolate chip cookie dough Larabars, chopped into small pieces

1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

1tsp vanilla

pinch of salt

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl and let sit in the fridge for a few hours or overnight, and then follow the manufacturer’s instructions for your ice cream maker.

There you have it: 2 more must-make homemade ice cream varieties. I used to be “not a huge ice cream fan.” Now? Who am I?! For those of you who have left me comments telling me my ice cream flavors are nudging you closer and closer to buying an ice cream maker, I hope this post pushes you over the edge. In a good way. In a creamy-coffee-chewy-cookie-dough-choclaty good way.
