Can I make vegan cookie dough ice cream Top 8 Allergen Free?
Yes! There are a few swaps you are going to need to make. For starters, when making the vegan edible cookie dough use a gluten free flour and a soy free butter.
We like Earth Balance soy free. It comes in a red tub.
In the ice cream portion, we are using coconut whipped topping and condensed milk. However, it’s still possible to make this a Top 8 Allergen Friendly Ice Cream.
So let’s walk through this. We can replace the coconut whipped topping with an almond or rice whip topping depending on allergens. Both of those come in spray cans.
For the vegan condensed milk, we clearly outline how to make it in our linked post with any type of dairy free milk, so you could use oat or flax for Top 8 Allergen Friendly.
Those little switches will make this a Top 8 Allergen free ice cream.
DO I HAVE TO USE VANILLA BEAN OR CAN I JUST USE EXTRACT?
If you want an authentic vanilla ice cream taste, then you really need to use the vanilla bean.
Of course, if you don’t want to, you always have the option of just using vanilla extract. Add an additional 1 tbsp of vanilla extract to the recipe.
Hint: splurge on the vanilla beans!
HOW LONG WILL VEGAN ICE CREAM LAST IN THE FREEZER?
For the most part, as long as you are using products that don’t expire soon, vegan ice cream will last 3-6 months if stored properly. Then again, that’s if it lasts that long!
WHAT STORE BOUGHT PRODUCTS DO YOU USE?
Making this store bought, definitely makes the process go faster. Our preferred products, if no coconut allergy is present, is So Delicious coconut whipped topping in the tub and the canned sweetened condensed coconut milk.
