Make Your Own: Ice Cream Cake! (dairy free)

Hello bloggies! Hope your weekend was wonderful! So much went down over here over the weekend…you saw some of it through my Instagram pic’s, but even more went on.

I was able to get in a nice yoga stretch session (a vinyasa class) at Breathe N Flow Yoga. That’s the best part about bringing Pure Bliss there, I can also get in a class while selling yummy baked goods. I also rolled out my nature valley bars and pumpkin chocolate chip muffins and they were a big hit. *yay*

I wanted to go for a run yesterday, but I really need to be realistic and leave a rest day for the weekend. With having a house, there is so much to do and I need to just realize 2 days of working out on the weekend isn’t going to happen. I didn’t have any “not exercising” guilt because I semi-thought it was going to happen. Ya live, ya learn right?

What else did I do this weekend? Made an ice cream cake….yep it’s true.

It was SO easy. I really wanted to have my own ice cream maker by now and make my own coconut milk ice cream, but I’m over it. After we re-do the kitchen I’ll get one. Right now there isn’t even space for the things I have in my apartment kitchen.

So what did I do? Went to Wild By Nature (basically, a closer to me Whole Foods) and bought 4 pints of So Delicious Coconut Milk ice cream AND Newman’s Own Organics Alphabet cookies. I basically looked at every single chocolate wafer cookie and found one with minimal ingredients that I could read. (These cookies won because they only had 3-4 ingredients. Winner!)

Happy Birthday to you!

*Notes: I did not remember to use wax paper, so I served my cake right out of the pan. Not as pretty, but still as delicious. I would absolutely make this again, it was so easy. The directions are long, but don’t let that scare you.

This also costs less than a carvel cake. Total price was about $18-20 bucks. Carvel ice cream cakes of that size are generally $30. For people with dairy allergies, cost = priceless.

Serving Size Note: This served 12 people for us – I wrote 14 because we had pretty big pieces. If you <3 ice cream like we do, I’d go more for 12 per cake.

    This is such a smart thing to make yourself. My family has a tradition of having a Carvel ice cream cake at ever holiday. Kind of annoying since I’m allergic to it and always end up making a second dessert I can eat. Maybe one time I can convince them to swap out a gluten-free, dairy-free version instead.
