The ice cream has a dreamy vanilla base, thick, rich and creamy, and is studded with big chunks of vegan cookie dough (which is also gluten-free and raw!). And to make this recipe even more mouthwatering, those little cookie dough bites?
Prepare the ice cream base first by blending all ingredients in a high powered blender until completely combined. Place in the fridge and cool for 1 - 2 hours.
For the cookie dough balls, whisk together all the dry ingredients in one bowl (minus the chocolate chips), the wet in a separate bowl. Add the wet to the dry and stir to form a dough. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Form the dough into 1 teaspoon sized balls. I use a measuring spoon that is lightly coated in oil and form the balls with my hands. Place them on a parchment lined plate. Continue forming the balls until all the dough is gone.
Place the balls in the freezer until the ice cream base is ready to be made.
Prepare the ice cream according to your ice cream manufacturer's directions. For mine, that was letting the base churn for about 10 minutes, then adding the cookie dough balls and letting it churn for another 10.
When serving, take the ice cream out of the freezer and let stand on the counter for 10 minutes to soften. Scoop into bowls and enjoy!
