Vegan Nice Cream Sandwich

Hey everyone! 

If you’re like me, ice cream sandwiches are your favourite! I remember every time the ice cream truck would come down our street, I would always order the ice cream sandwich! They were just too hard to pass up. The cookie and ice cream…I mean, so good! And now I’ve discovered that it’s also so easy. 

Recipe

Cookie:

10 dates pitted and soaked for about 10 mins

2 cups oat flour or oats grinded up

1/2 cup of raw cacao powder

2 tsp vanilla 

3 tbsp water 

Ice cream:

I used vegan ice cream from my local grocery store. 

Directions:

1. In a blender or food processor, blend all cookie ingredients. If too dry add more water. It should be like dough that you can roll out. 

2. Roll out and cut out the shape you want. 

3. Place in freezer for about half hour. 

4. Make your ice cream sandwich and voila! Enjoy!

Village Ice Cream in Calgary, AB

If you’re not an ice cream person, go there for the waffle cones. As simple as they are, the waffle cones there are delicious. They are made in house right in front of you. They are hard enough to hold your ice cream but has a soft, chewy texture. As for the ice cream, I have only tried their dairy-free ice cream made from coconut milk.

Although their selection for dairy-free ice cream isn’t as extensive as their list of conventional ice cream, it definitely hits the spot. I find that they usually have two dairy-free ice cream flavours available – and they do not disappoint. I notice that they regularly change the dairy-free flavours, which does allow for more variety over time. It sports a very busy and hip atmosphere. Be prepared to wait in line!
