Not only is this a dairy free ice cream but it is also free from gluten and refined sugar. I have added coconut oil to give help give it that creamy texture – you would never guess that it contained no milk or cream! The ice cream is crammed with nuggets of chocolate cookie dough, which also happens to be gluten, egg and dairy free and sweetened with raw honey.

  1. This sounds amazing! Defs going to try it for the girls. I might have to cheat (bananas) and have some myself! We often make berry ‘nice cream’ and banana on its own but this takes it to a whole other level…yum! 🙂
