Vegan Cookies and Cream Ice Cream

using Newman’s Own Newman-O’s?  No where, that’s where!!

Real quick, first it is with a heavy heart that I make this post.  This is the final day of not only Vegan Week, but unResolution Month as a whole.  It’s a bittersweet moment, but it is a sweet moment since we’re going out with vegan ice cream!

We love this recipe in the BlogWellDone household.  We’re ice cream fans here in a bad, bad way.  For this, I blame Mrs. WellDone since when we became one in that whole marriage ceremony thing, I seem to have gotten her sweet tooth.  On the other hand, she seems to have gotten my desire to tinker with recipes.  Thus, it is with all due praise and admiration that I admit that this is her adaption of a recipe that came with our ice cream machine.

She was even the one who decided to add the Newman-Os, which are vegan chocolate sandwich cookies produced by Newman’s Own Organics, a company which produces some fantastic products.  (I’m in no way affiliated with them, we just like their vegan Newman-Os, lemonade, and salad dressing.)

The only problem I have with this recipe is that it requires an ice cream maker.  I wish I had a recipe for ice cream that didn’t require additional equipment, but it does.  The good news is that ice cream makers are not that expensive and they make really great ice cream.  Vegan or otherwise.

Vegan Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Recipe

In terms of difficulty, because this recipe uses an ice cream machine, it’s really easy to do.  Just mix in the ingredients and press the button.  Now, the real question is when you add the Newman-Os.  The first time we added them in the beginning and they got soggy in the mixture.  The ice cream tasted good, but the texture was off.  Later, we decided to add them right before the ice cream was done.  The texture was much, much better.

However, the choice is yours.  If you have something to do, add the cookies in the beginning.  The ice cream will still taste sweet, chocolately, and delicious.

You will need:

  • 1 cup vanilla soy milk
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups soy creamer
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 12 Newman-Os cookies, smashed

Mix everything but the Newman-Os together and pour into the ice cream machine.  Make the ice cream per your ice cream machine’s instructions.

About 5 minutes before the ice cream is ready, add the cookies.

Serve with more Newman-Os and enjoy!
