As a follow-up to my Vegan Ice Cream Goodies post, I bring you my Vegan Smores Ice Cream Sandwich Recipe. Gooey marshmallow swirled into creamy mounds of cool chocolate coco-soy cream. All smushed between two cinnamon graham crackers. Rolled in chocolate sprinkles. 100% vegan.
Two Recipe Versions. If you have an ice cream maker, you can try my recipe for vegan Smores Ice Cream. Made from a soy/coconut milk base. And if you don't have one, that's OK too - I have an alternate recipe version for you. Frozen Smores - a summertime treat! Indulge...
Frozen Party Treats. Make a huge batch of these smores for a summertime party and guests will be swooning. Frozen smores under the sweltering sun? Yes please!
Vegan Graham Crackers. It's quite a chore to find honey-free Graham crackers. If you eat honey, you will have no problems. I personally do eat honey, but if you don't, here are two honey-free grahams: Keebler low-fat Cinnamon Grahams and Health Valley Amaranth Graham Crackers. The Health Valley crackers have a better nutrition profile, but they are harder to find.
Store-Bought Vegan Ice Cream. My fave brands/flavors below. The chocolate flavor of any of these brands would work well for these frozen smores...
Turtle Mountain So Delicious and Soy Delicious
fave flavors: Chocolate Peanut Butter and Purely Decadent Cookie Dough
Living Harvest Tempt
fave flavor: Chocolate Fudge
fave flavor: Vanilla Island
Ricemellow Creme. As I showed you in my goodies/toppings post, that I discovered fun, fluff-inspired vegan marshmallow creme at Whole Foods and I was dying to make some chocolate-marshmallow soycream with it. My recipe turned out beautifully - and naturally, smores ice cream sandwiches soon followed. Here is my recipe..
