Vegan Heavenly Hash Ice Cream | savannamehrad.com OH MY GOODNESS,  GUYS!! I FINALLY DID IT!!

I. MADE. ICE. CREAM.

Annnnnd it’s delicious! Yup, you’re welcome!

Vegan Heavenly Hash Ice Cream | savannamehrad.com I don’t know about you, but heavenly hash ice cream is my all-time favourite kind of ice cream – I could just sit and eat an entire tub of that deliciousness. So when I started to cut out dairy due to digestion issues, I cried many, many tears for all the tubs of heavenly hash ice cream that I would never have the joys of eating.

UNTIL NOW.

That’s right, I totally made Vegan Heavenly Hash Ice Cream and it’s totally the best thing I have ever eaten (sorry all my other recipes that I said were incredibly good, this one takes the cake)!

This Vegan Heavenly Hash Ice Cream is deliciously chocolatey, full of crunchy dark chocolate and almond bites and swirled with an unbelievable ripple of marshmallow fluff. Do I really need to say anything else? You need to hop on this ice cream train!

Vegan Heavenly Hash Ice Cream | savannamehrad.com The best part about this Vegan Heavenly Hash Ice Cream is that it’s no-churn! That’s right, you don’t need a fancy ice cream maker to enjoy some of this in your own home. This was great news for me because, while I received an ice cream maker for our wedding last year, the thing scares the hell out of me and I still have not used it, 10 months later. Sorry, momma! I promise the rest of the mixer has gotten loads of use though 🙂

Vegan Heavenly Hash Ice Cream | savannamehrad.com Vegan Heavenly Hash Ice Cream | savannamehrad.com This Vegan Heavenly Hash Ice Cream comes together in a regular ‘ole bowl, with a regular ‘ole hand-held mixer. It’s regular ‘ole genius, I tell ya!

Coconut Cream takes centre stage in this recipe, so make sure you stock up on your favourite brand and keep a couple of those bad boys in your fridge at all times for when a Vegan Heavenly Hash Ice Cream craving strikes.

Since this is the only way I have ever made ice cream, it’s officially my favourite way to make ice cream and is so easy that any one can make it. This is me officially warning you that there will be lots of ice cream posts in the near future. You’re incredibly welcome. 🙂

Vegan Heavenly Hash Ice Cream | savannamehrad.com Rich Cocoa Powder really takes this ice cream into the dark, rich, chocolate station and the whole thing is sweetened naturally with dates. I love me some dates. The fact that this entire ice cream recipe is made up of rea, natural, wholesome foods makes me incredible happy – there are no hard to pronounce ingredients in this recipe, promise!

Fresh, chopped almonds and chopped chunks of dark chocolate add in a really nice crunch to this Vegan Heavenly Hash Ice Cream. Top that all off with a swirl of the best Vegan Marshmallow Fluff and you’ll arrive in tip-top shape at the final boarding call. Best. Train ride. Ever!

Vegan Heavenly Hash Ice Cream | savannamehrad.com Vegan Heavenly Hash Ice Cream | savannamehrad.com The hardest part about this Vegan Heavenly Hash Ice Cream recipe is waiting for it to freeze, however, you could totally just eat it as a delicious, non-frozen heavenly hash pudding if you really wanted to – I won’t judge. In fact, I’d probably join in on that party!

Freezing the Vegan Heavenly Hash Ice Cream for about an hour gives the ice cream an almost mousse-like texture, perfect for topping your favourite gluten-free, vegan ice cream cones with. Which, by the way, I was incredibly excited to find at my local grocery store!

Author:
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: Vegan
Serves: Approximately 5 cups
Ingredients
  • 2 cans coconut cream, chilled
  • 5 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • ½ Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 16 medjool dates, pitted
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • ¼ cup almonds, chopped
  • 100 g dark chocolate, chopped
  • ¾ cup marshmallow fluff
Instructions
  1. In a food processor, process the dates until they form into a date ball. Remove from processor and set aside.
  2. Open chilled cans of coconut milk and scoop out the hardened coconut cream. Add to a large chilled mixing bowl.
  3. To the chilled coconut cream, add cocoa powder, vanilla extract and coconut milk. Using a hand held mixer, mix on high for 2-3 minutes, or until well mixed. Add in half of processed date paste and continue to mix for another 1-2 minutes. Add remainder of date paste and mix for an additional 1-2 minutes, until well mixed and smooth.
  4. Stir in chopped chocolate and almonds.
  5. Pour mixture into a metal bread loaf pan. Using a spoon, spread mixture out until evenly distributed amongst pan.
  6. Drizzle the marshmallow fluff over the chocolate ice cream mixture. Using a spoon or butter knife, drag the marshmallow fluff into the ice cream mixture, similar to how you would marble a cake batter. Be careful not to over mix - you want the marshmallow layer to remain separate from the rest of the chocolate mixture.
  7. Place pan into the freezer for one hour. If you wish a firmer ice cream, freeze for up to 2 hours. Freezing longer than 2 hours will require you to let the ice cream soften prior to serving.
Notes
Chill a large metal bowl and the mixer attachments for 30 minutes prior to assembling recipe.

  1. Hi Savanna,

    if I make this but don’t want to eat it straight away (i.e. after freezing for two hours) – will that have any other effect on the ice cream except the longer softening time? No ice crystals due to non stirring? That’s what I’m most worried about…

    Thanks, Heidi

    1. Hi Heidi,
      This ice cream didn’t last long enough in our house to worry about ice crystals forming 😉 I think if you keep in in an airtight container, it should be okay for at least a week or two though. Let me know how it goes!

  2. This does look delicious! I’ve never made anything like this, so I’m not clear on step 2; do I use the hardend coconut cream or do I scoop it out and get rid of it?

    1. Hi Annabel,

      The hardened coconut cream is what you want to use for the recipe, definitely don’t throw it out 🙂

  3. The only reason I haven’t made this yet is because I just moved and am in need of a few kitchen tools before I can put it together. Until then, I’m staring longingly at the pictures. Heavenly Hash was always a favorite when I was a kid. <3 Thanks so much for sharing!

    1. You’re so welcome, Sam. It’s sucha great dish – I know you’re going to love it!

  4. I just made this recipe, ladies, and I can tell you it is DELICIOUS! The “marshmallow fluff” is made from chickpea brine…..very creamy and marshmallow like. The only thing I would try to change is the one cup of sugar the recipe calls for in the marshmallow fluff. The ice cream recipe is wonderful and satisfying the way it is and I will definitely make this over and over. Overall it isn’t a difficult recipe either.

    1. Hi Marcine! I’m so glad to hear that the recipe turned out great for you! I myself was a little leery of all the sugar in the marshmallow fluff too but it was the only way I could get rid of the subtle chickpea flavour. Maybe next time I will play around with other extracts, sugar ratios, etc. Happy to hear you found it easy too! 🙂

  5. This looks heavenly! Just a quick question about the dates, is it 16 dates or 1/4 c.? Thanks!

    1. I counted out 16 – I’ll update the recipe 🙂

    2. I used 16 dates exactly and it sweetened the ice cream perfectly.

      1. Great to hear!!

  6. This looks amazing, but I can’t get coconut cream where I live 🙁 can I just use canned coconut milk&scoop out the hardened stuff? I really wanna make this!

    1. Hi Nat,
      That’s exactly what I do for this recipe! Just let your canned coconut firm up in the fridge over night and then scoop out the hardened cream the next day. Good luck! I hope you love it!!

    2. Coconut cream is hard to find. Do you have a Whole Foods? I hear you can get it at Trader Joe’s as well.

  7. Wow, this looks amazing!!! This is on my “must make IMMEDIATELY” recipe list lol.

    1. Awww, thank’s Kara! I know you’ll love it!

  8. What a great recipe to have. I am having a family barbecue today and this might be a great addition to the menu!

    1. Oh, I know it would be absolutely adored!! Let me know how it turns out!

  9. This is beyond incredible- Your so talented, Savanna!

    1. Thanks, Arman! I can always count on you for an ego boost!

  10. I’m kind of freaking out over how flippin incredible this sounds and looks. I love the addition of marshmallow fluff!
    Heavenly hash was always one of my faves, but I kind of forgot about it. Until now. Need thissss!

    1. You’re too cute, Leah! I hear you on forgetting about the flavour – I’m such a fan of plain vanilla, that unless the heavenly hash is staring me right in the face, I forget about it. Plus, I haven’t seen a vegan version sold locally so that kinda puts a damper on enjoying it regularly…until NOW!! This ice cream was super easy to make; I know you’ll love it!

  11. If I had heard of Heavenly Hash Ice Cream when I was a kid it probably would have been my favorite flavor! I LOVE marshmallow fluff in any form and anything, this looks DIVINE!!! And easy…and I love the pudding option 😉

    1. Thanks, Natalie. The marshmallow fluff in it is my absolute favourite part!

      1. The marshmallow fluff is incredible!

        1. Thanks, Marcine!

          1. I was just asked about the calorie count and I don’t see it. Can you help, Savanna?

          2. Hi Marcine,

            It’s approximately 296 calories per 1/2 cup. I’ve updated the recipe with the full details.
