Vegan Ice Cream Bars (V+GF): an 8 ingredient recipe for the BEST decadent chocolate-dipped vegan ice cream bars made with whole ingredients. Vegan, Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Paleo.
You guys! This is IT. This is the one you’ve been waiting for. Hang up the phone and cancel all of your appointments. In fact, turn off your TV, this is IT. Yeah, I said it. Turn off your TV. This is getting serious.
This is the dessert you’ve been waiting for. In fact, this is THE dessert my family’s been drooling over, enjoying like WOAH, and been asking me to make again and again. Like, even while they’re eating it.
I say this with the utmost respect for my other recipes, this is my favorite dessert EVER. Yup, I just said it. Even better than my best vegan brownies. And I just felt all good typing “best vegan brownies.”
Okay, so you know I’ve had a long and devoted love affair with sweets, desserts, cookies, cakes, cakes shaped like cookies, ice cream shaped like cakes, and cakes shaped like oh, you know. But basically, ALL of the sweets are my love. No offense, Erik.
But these vegan ice cream bars are everything I couldn’t have even dreamed of. Because, seriously, sometimes my imagination is limited by the real world and junk. Lame… 😉
In any case, it was a few weeks ago when Erik and I happily welcomed our new popsicle mold into the family. We had too much fun making this, this, and this. It was all the popsicles, all the time. I mean, if we could’ve stepped into a time machine and asked our childhood selves what we wanted, this would’ve been it.
But, as much fun as those popsicles were, we knew something was missing. And oh YES, it was THIS ice cream bar. Screaming required. They’re basically popsicle versions of ice cream. And need I mention my love of cake-shaped ice cream or cookie-shaped cakes? Well hello to you, popsicle-shaped ice cream. Nice to meet ya!
So why not try making our own? You see, I’ve been toying with an ice cream recipe for awhile now, still fiddling with the creamy/icy/thick-but-not-too-thick factor, when I just went ahead and poured one test batch mixture into our popsicle mold. Because. Summer. Yep, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again (there goes that wonderful imagination of mine).
And guess what came out a mere few (okay, more like 4-6) hours later? The most perfect ice cream bars. But wait, there’s more! (Suddenly, I’ve become Joey selling that amazing milk-pouring spout thingy.) No, there wasn’t any flingin’ flangin’ liquid pouring disasters here, just a need for a nice, thick chocolate shell.
So I mixed up the wonderfully simple recipe for homemade vegan chocolate shell: cocoa powder, maple syrup and coconut oil. All at once, you could almost hear the dessert angels sing. And you could definitely hear Joey sayin’ “How you doin’?” to these ice cream bars.
Then, I did a bit of dipping, a bit of tasting, maybe some dripping (on my clothes and maybe even the floor), and a WHOLE lotta eating.
The second you bite into this vegan ice cream bar, you’ll see exactly what I mean. The crunch of that perfectly thick chocolate shell, the cool creaminess of the ice cream interior: instant, and all-consuming perfect dessert bliss.
