Love the taste of peppermint and chocolate? You have got to try this homemade non-dairy candy cane ice cream recipe at home, it is the perfect non-dairy dessert for the holidays! I’m working with Silk® on a sponsored campaign to try out their cashew milk.
This cookie and candy cane ice cream is amazing
Let’s be honest: how many dairy-free ice creams have you tried, that tasted good?
I personally LOVE ice cream, but in the past couple of years, dairy hasn’t loved me back. I have tried lots of non-dairy ice creams at the store, and they just weren’t that great. I got my hands on new Silk Cashewmilk and I thought: new creamy cashew milk + holiday season = make a delicious non-dairy dessert, and that’s how our homemade candy cane cookie ice cream was born!
A holiday ice cream recipe to try
So I did, and I am in love with what I came up with! In the spirit of the holiday season, I decided to put together a couple of my favorites, candy canes, and Oreo® cookies, and it proves that they taste great together!
Silk Cashewmilk is a delicious, creamy, and thick cashew-based alternative to cow and almond milk. Due to its creamy texture, making a smoothie or ice cream with it was the first thing I thought of. It can be poured over your favorite bowl of cereal (we like Raisin Bran), used in recipes, and even drank straight out of the carton. Silk Cashewmilk contains calcium and vitamin D, is GMO-free, and has fewer calories per serving than regular milk. I am glad we got a chance to taste it, I am a new fan!

How to make the best peppermint candy ice cream
Let’s get started with this Crush the candy canes and cookies into pieces in your blender or food processor. I lightly pulsed my blender so that they would break up but not grind down too fine. Remove and set aside.
Combine all of the ice cream’s ingredients
Combine your Silk Cashewmilk, sugar, vanilla, and salt in the blender and give them a whirl to mix them together. Add your candy-cookie crumbles and give it one more whirl to combine it all.
Pour the mixture into your freezer-friendly container, cover, and freeze overnight. And then… SCOOP.
YES. I sprinkled a little more crushed candy cane on the top for garnish, I also may add a little more cookie to the top!
Enjoy this holiday candy cane ice cream recipe!
