Vegan MoFo Recipe # 20, and for the grand finale, Drum roll please,………. Coconut Vanilla ice-cream Sandwiches with Chocolate Fudge Cookies.

A fitting end to a wonderful month of vegan blogging. This is the first year for both my blog, and, for me to find out and participate in Vegan MoFo. I have had a wonderful (although sometimes exhausting) time. The best part for me is all the other fantastic blogs out there I have found (whoever came up with the randomofo is a genius).

I wanted to end the month with something special. As I have mentioned previously, I do  not have a sweet tooth, so tend to forget the dessert side of cooking, but back at the beginning of summer, I was as the Toronto Vegan Festival and had a coconut ice cream sundae that was sitting on a chocolate brownie. It was so good, I made a note to try to make it at home one day. Well, there is no time like the present.

I have combined a number of recipes to come up with this. The ice cream is the same basic frozen banana soft serve I have been making for a long time, but I added frozen coconut milk for the creamy texture and a little vanilla for taste. The cookie’s are a base of a traditional chocolate chip cookie, but with extra cocoa and no chips. I replaced the egg with the chia and water. The end result is perfect. Rich creamy ice-cream sandwiched in between two fudgey chocolate cookies….yum.

The cookies for the ice cream sandwiches were made oversize, but you can also make regular size cookies too. In fact, this recipe made three huge ice cream sandwich’s plus another dozen regular cookies.

Enjoy,

Coconut Vanilla Ice cream Sandwiches with Chocolate Fudge Cookies

Makes 6 sandwiches

  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1 tblspn cornstarch
  • 1 tspn vanilla
  • 2 bananas
  • 1 tblspn chia seeds
  • 3 tblspns water
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tspn baking soda
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/4 cups coconut palm sugar
  • 1/2 cup soy (or other non dairy) milk
  • 1 tspn vanilla

Ice cream:

Combine all but 1/4 cup of the coconut milk in pot with 1 tspn of vanilla. Heat gently until quite warm. Combine remaining coconut milk and cornstarch in separate bowl until cornstarch is dissolved. Slowly stir cornstarch mixture into coconut milk, vanilla mixture. Increase heat to medium and cook stirring for 3 – 5 mins until mixture thickens. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.

Once cool, pour into ice-cube trays and freeze overnight.

Peel and cut banana’s into 1 inch slices. Place in freezer bag and freeze overnight.

When ready to serve, place frozen coconut milk and frozen banana into food processor. Process until smooth and creamy. This will take a few minutes, but the texture will be similar to a soft serve.

Chocolate Fudge Cookies:

Place chia seeds and water in small bowl and let sit for 5 mins to gel.

Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt in bowl. Mix well.

In a separate large bowl, combine vegetable oil, palm sugar and gelled chia seeds. Mix well.  Add soy milk and vanilla and mix to combine.

Add dry mixture into wet mixture and mix until just combined. ( add a little extra soy milk if necessary, mixture should be quite stiff but all dry ingredients should be incorporated)

For large sandwich cookies, take 1/4 cupfuls and roll into balls with your hands then flatten to around 1/2 inch discs.

For small cookies, use tablespoonfuls

Place on parchment lined baking sheets and bake for 10 mins. Keep a close eye on cookies and make sure you do not over cook. The larger cookies might need a min or two more than the small, check middle of cookie with a toothpick to see if cooked.

Remove from trays and place on cooling racks.

When ready to serve, Take one large cookie, top with approx 1/2 cup ice cream and place another cookie on top. Press together gently.
