Real coconut cream with allergy friendly gluten free Vegan Oreos and no ice cream maker required, makes this Mint Cookies N Cream a big hit. Love this easy dairy free no churn option that’s free of the top 8 food allergens making this a perfect way to kick off National Food Allergy Awareness week, #TealTakeOver.
Oreos and ice cream seem like an awesome combination. Creamy vanilla dairy free ice cream with loads of chocolate oreo chunks and hints of mint is hard to believe it’s free of the 8 most common food allergen. If you suffer from a dairy allergy, this could be your new go-to recipe this Summer.
Let’s face it, with hot n humid weather approaching (and school ending) there will be days ice cream could be in order. If you’re like me, you don’t have an ice cream maker (and don’t want to store one). What’s better and easier than to just mix your favorite add-ins and freeze? And there’s no room for the “H” word here (healthy) and that’s why ice cream is a treat to be enjoy once in awhile…

Have you guys even heard of Teal Take Over?
It’s a week dedicated to raising food allergy awareness. National Food Allergy Awareness Week is May 10-16. During this time, I’ll be sharing more about our journey and struggles with food allergies.
I’ll be sharing our personal and very real experience leading up to the emergency room visit with my older son. This story should have been here long ago but the guilt of our story is has stopped me. Not this time. Be sure to look for this soon.
For those of you reading this who do not have any food allergies, you might think it doesn’t apply to you… but…This could become a very valuable life lesson since food allergies are on the rise. Chances are you either know a family member or friend that has a food allergy. There has been a stunning 50% increase in food allergies since 1995. The number of children and adults managing food allergies range in the millions.
As you know, both of my boys suffer from food allergies. My oldest suffers from a peanut allergy. This seem simple in comparison to my youngest Mrs. Naughty, who is allergic to allergens including: wheat (gluten), egg, soy, peanut, tree nut, seafood/shellfish, sunflower, sesame, beans and peas.

Dairy Free Cookies N Cream Ice Cream (Gluten Free Vegan)
Author: Laura @ Petite Allergy Treats
- 2 cans coconut cream (not milk)
- 12 of my vegan gluten free mint oreos
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- Mix coconut cream, sugar and extract until incorporated.
- Break or coarsely chop oreos and mix with cream.
- Pour entire mixture into a baking pan lined with foil and set in freezer for 6 hours or until frozen.
Notes: The cookies are your choice if you wanted regular oreo which you can find the recipe here. The mixture freezes pretty firm, it may be helpful to allow to thaw 10 minutes before scooping. Lining the pan with foil is for easy removal and so you don’t scratch the pan when scooping the ice cream.
