Ice Cream Friday: Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk

Vegan Oatmeal Ice Cream

It’s like eating a frozen bowl of oatmeal. Does that sound yucky to you?

I promise it’s not yucky. I wouldn’t steer you wrong.

We’re almost halfway through the summer (gulp!), and have celebrated six weeks of Ice Cream Fridays. Some of you have been inspired to whip up some dairy-free ice cream creations of your own, with ice cream makers and without. Take a peek at these goodies:

Perhaps we can have a little dairy-free ice cream check-in right now.

Any special requests? Flavours you’re dying to have me create, adapt, explore? Let me know in the comments!

And I have a question for you: anyone tried the new vegan meringue thing using chickpea brine? If I could create a vegan, gluten-free baked Alaska that would be the most epic dessert ever.

Happy Friday and have a wonderful weekend!

    Did you use steel cut oats, old fashioned oats, etc.? This sounds delicious and would love to make it but would like to know which type of oats you used. Thanks!

      I use gluten-free rolled oats, not quick-cooking or steel-cut.
