Vegan Ice-Cream Oreo Blizzard

Blizzard 1

Who else likes ice-cream? Unfortunately, I recently found out that my body does not handle dairy very well. I went to an allergist who told me to avoid it…like long-term avoiding. I’m not too heartbroken, but I must say there are things I miss… yogurt, for one. Then of course, there’s that splash of milk in my tea or coffee that I love. Then there are those lovely puddings and custards and I wonder if maybe, just maybe…I miss milk a little bit. Then I remind myself that most of those things aren’t that healthy for me anyway…and that cow’s milk isn’t the greatest invention on the planet. But I still miss it a teeny, weeny, little bit.

Thankfully, I can improvise. In fact, I like to invent new versions of old favourites, and I prefer to make a simpler, quicker version than the original. I don’t like time consuming recipes. Once I’m free of the kitchen there are so many other lovely things to do.

Enter my take on dairy-free ice-cream. Be prepared.

Vegan Ice-Cream Oreo Blizzard

  1. 1 can of coconut milk
  2. 2-3 tsp pure vanilla extract
  3. 2 tbsp agave nectar

Sound easy enough?


Directions: Whirl up all your ingredients up in the blender.


Pour into your ice-cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions.

Pour into ice-cream maker

Now turn it on, and while it’s working its magic you can crush four or five Oreos (I used this brand). I like crushing things. It’s like free therapy. *smile*

Then gather up these three ingredients for the chocolate sauce you’re going to swirl into your ice-cream.

Chocolate Sauce

  1. Virgin, organic coconut oil
  2. Cocoa
  3. Agave Nectar

Take a heaping tablespoon of coconut oil and melt it in a small pot on low heat. Add 1-2 teaspoons of cocoa and as much agave nectar as you like, to the sweetness you desire. I used about a tablespoon of agave. Stir it up.

Making sauce

Now when your ice-cream is done, put the amount you want in a bowl and swirl some of that chocolate sauce into it. The sauce should harden a bit, kind of like that Magic Shell stuff I used to love. Now add your Oreo cookies and mix that in too…mmmmm, who needs Dairy Queen anyway?

    Wow, I would not have guessed in a million years that this was vegan. I am not allergic to dairy but I do have to use a lot of alternative ingredients to remain low carb (sadly, I am diabetic). I love coconut milk and almond milk. Have yet to try ice cream with them but I plan to!

    Milk subbies are the best! I love coconut milk, but I just discovered almond milk from Silk a few months ago, and I use it all the time. Dairy disagrees with me if I have too much of it, or if my intake of the day was the right mix of things then just a little bit can bother me a lot. This is a yummy treat I’ll definitely have to try :)

    […] can use this as a topping on my vegan “Blizzard” recipe…simply substitute the “oreos” for the cookie dough. I have other uses in my head for a future […]

    This looks so good and sooo easy! I don’t own an ice cream maker though, so can I still make this? Thanks, love your recipes!

  11. Charissa

    Yummy~ For sure! Just put it in your freezer and stir it once in a while, while it freezes! I do this all the time…enjoy!

  12. Ashleigh

    is there a sub for agave? I don’t have any of that on hand, but would like to make an afternoon treat for the kids.
