With the warmer weather, it’s inevitable that we’ll all be craving an ever classic and super nostalgic ice cream cone to cool down with and satisfy your sweet tooth, but what if I told you that you can easily make your own at home while using better for you ingredients? Well, you can, and it’s actually super easy!

Who doesn’t love cookies and cream ice cream? It’s such a highly loved flavor and now you can make it at home to enjoy for yourself or with a group! It’s as easy as it is fun and is made with ingredients you can recognize, so you can feel good about digging in! Plus, LesserEvil’s Fudge Brownie Mini Cookies make the perfect cookie crumbles that make this recipe taste like the flavor we all grew up loving!

What You’ll Need
While this recipe doesn’t require many ingredients and hardly any effort, it does require a bit of time to freeze. If you plan to make this, you’ll want to start two days ahead of time by popping your loaf tin in the freezer to chill as well as allowing for a day (8-12 hours) to freeze thoroughly.

In terms of ingredients, here is what you’ll need:
· Coconut milk or cream (coconut cream helps thicken the ice cream a bit, but both will work)
· Monk fruit sweetener (for lower sugar) or regular sugar
· Maple syrup
· Vanilla extract
· Cashew butter
· Salt
· LesserEvil Fudge Brownie Cookies
