Last night for some odd reason I had a craving for ice cream. This was really weird for two reasons. First, because it was so cold out last night, and second because I NEVER eat ice cream!
Because I never eat ice cream I decided to go all out. Not only was I going to have ice cream, but I was going to make a past time favorite, cookies and cream in a cone! To make this creation I used So Delicious Vanilla Bean Coconut Milk Ice Cream. After going GF milk started to bother me, so I started using this ice cream, since it is dairy-free. I was introduced to this ice cream by my cousin. At school, she lives with vegans and told me, if I very wanted to try a DF ice cream, skip rice or soy ice cream and head straight for coconut milk ice cream. Although, I have only tried one flavor so far, I really enjoy this ice cream’s creamy taste.
To make the cookies and cream ice cream I scooped out the vanilla ice cream and crushed one Mi-Del Chocolate Sandwich Cookie and mixed it into the ice cream. I then put it into a Goldbaums GF sugar cone. The GF sugar cone had an indistinguishable taste from its gluten-filled counterparts. Ironically, before when I ate cones I would only get wafer cones because I did not like sugar cones. However, I think that the GF sugar cones have a much better taste than the GF wafer cones. The Mi-del cookies where good too, the cookie was crunchy with a great chocolate taste.
Note: Mi-Del states on their packaging that they recently revised their recipe and these cookies now have a new and improved taste. However, this was the first time I had these cookies, so it did not make a difference to me!
So Delicious Coconut Milk ice cream is certified gluten-free and comes in a variety of flavors, including chocolate chip cookie dough. You can find So Delicious Coconut Milk ice cream at your local Whole Foods.
