Friends, this is the ULTIMATE summer dessert. Ice cream in cake form- how could it get better than that? This Vegan Ice Cream Cake is decadent, creamy central, pure bliss and the perfect treat for any summer celebration!
Coffee flavoured ice cream is probably my favourite. It’s definitely always my go-to. So I decided to make this ice cream cake a coffee ice cream cake! If that isn’t your thing, honestly any type of ice cream would work here- so many options!
But coffee is how I rolled with this recipe and it sure didn’t disappoint. It is big-time Picky Husband Approved as well as Mom Approved! My mom was visiting when I was wrestling with this recipe and it was awesome having her here for feedback. I initially got the inspiration from her for this recipe so her input was just what I needed. Many moons ago, she used to make a homemade ice cream cake for family birthdays. It wasn’t vegan or gluten-free at the time but I found myself dreaming about that cake a few months back. I knew I had to do my best to recreate it. It was very special having Mom in town so she could try it and know what I was going for. And she loved it! She’s also a huge coffee fan so anything coffee is usually going to vibe perfectly with her. I will say Adam and I had a good chuckle because she decided to eat this cake sans fork! Mom ate it more like an ice cream sandwich. It was pretty adorable and it actually kinda worked! It just got a little messier than if you enjoyed with a fork.
