vegan oreo ice cream cupcakes

Fun fact that many people do not know: Oreos are vegan!

So are Nutter Butters! Two of my faves right there

This was my first time trying cashew-based ice cream. Definitely a good alternative for someone who can’t have traditional dairy ice cream!

It was pretty easy to make with my trusty food processor…just throw all the ingredients in and give it a whirl! I’d imagine a heavy duty Vitamix would make the job even easier.

Vegan Oreo Ice Cream Cupcakes
Makes 6

6 oreos for the crust

For the ice cream:
1/2 cup raw cashews, soaked in water for at least 2 hours
1/2 cup almond milk
1/8 cup melted coconut oil
2 tablespoons honey (feel free to sub agave or maple syrup for strict vegans)
1/2 tablespoon vanilla

Line a 6-cup cupcake pan with cupcake liners and place an Oreo on the bottom of each.

Blend all the ice cream ingredients together in a high speed blender or food processor until smooth

Pour the ice cream mixture on top of the Oreo. Freeze until set (at least 1 hour). Once they are set, feel free to add toppings (Oreo crumbs, drizzle chocolate, nuts, coconut, etc).

  1. I just found your blog and this recipe already convinced me to stick around for longer. It looks awesome! Anything cashew-based is delicious and individual desserts get extra cuteness points. (:
