Decadent Mint Cookies n’ Cream Ice Cream (parve)

Ben & Jerry’s Mint Cookies & Cream Ice Cream is my all-time favorite ice cream.  The frozen white cream of the cookie mixed with mint ice cream is just so heavenly that I had to find a way to replicate it, albeit pareve, so that it could be enjoyed after a very meaty Shabbos meal.  As I was playing around with this recipe I thought of Ben & Jerry who add lots of candy and cookies to their ice cream flavors, I decided  to add some chocolate mint candy to it along with the cookies.  Ice cream is to me what chocolate is to the rest of the world, making this combination absolutely irresistible.

Special thanks to KosherScoop for providing me with  BaktoFlavors Peppermint Extract and Golden Vanilla Cane Sugar to perfect this decadent delight.



16 ounces non-dairy topping (frozen parve whip cream in liquid form)

1 cup sugar (I used 1/2 cup sugar with 1/2 cup BaktoFlavors Golden Vanilla Sugar that has real vanilla beans in it)

1 cup soy or coconut milk

3/4 teaspoon of peppermint extract

1 cup crushed chocolate sandwich cookies with vanilla cream inside (parve)

1 cup mini chocolate mint lentils

optional: green food coloring.  (I am not a fan of using food coloring so I don’t use this but if you need your mint ice cream to be green, that’s how you do it. )


Whip the non-dairy topping until creamy (not yet whipped) with an electric mixer

Add the sugar and soy milk and keep mixing until creamy

Fold in the crushed cookies and mint lentils

Freeze overnight in airtight container & enjoy!

Free Carvel Kid’s Cup or Cone on National Ice Cream Day


free kids cone or cup

To honor the upcoming National Ice Cream Day, which happens to be this Sunday, July 17th, 2011, Carvel Ice Cream stores around the nation are giving away free kid’s cups or cones with any adult purchase.

Here is a list of Carvel stores around the nation.

While Carvel Ice Cream is manufactured in a Kosher facility, each individual Carvel Store needs their own certification. If you don’t already know about your own local Carvel store’s certification, you can call your carvel store here and ask.

Here’s an interesting fact: President Ronald Reagan signed a proclamation for National Ice Cream Day in 1984 while also designating July to be National Ice Cream Month.

For more Kosher dairy savings during National Ice Cream month, here are some Carvel Sundae Dasher coupons, Baskin-Robbins ice cream coupons and Chobani Greek yogurt coupons.
