Thick and Creamy Vegan Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream

Jump to Recipe

this Thick and Creamy Vegan Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream is a mix of deliciousness and nostalgia!

my summer dessert inspiration always includes strawberries and this is sort of my take on the ever-so-famous strawberry ice cream bars.


this shortcake is not light and fluffy like you may be thinking. it’s actually almost more resemblant of shortbread.

the texture is dense and sturdy so that it holds up well in the ice cream. the cake doesn’t get soggy, which is amazing.

the shortcake requires five ingredients to make! i mixed two flours, oat and almond, to make the dough. i used Bob’s Red Mill flours for both, but you can use whatever brand you like!

personally, i like to add 3/4 of the cake and save the last 1/4 for topping. if that’s too much for you, then you can always just save it for another dessert.

i also used dairy free milk, maple syrup for sweetness, and avocado oil. if you don’t have or like avocado oil, you can also use coconut oil! 🙂

the shortcake only takes 23-25 minutes to bake and i made it about 1/3 of an inch thick, so it isn’t hard to crumble into pieces.

i love making my own ice cream and strawberry ice cream is so refreshing. i used both freeze dried and fresh or frozen strawberries to help with consistency and taste.

it takes about 4 hours to freeze, but once it’s done it is seriously sooo creamy!!

truly, the creaminess factor is actually over the top here.

i feel like you can’t go wrong with a strawberry and shortcake combination. the shortcake pieces give the ice cream a fun mix up when it comes to the texture.

you can add whatever toppings you like to the finished recipe such as melted white chocolate, but i think it’s perfect on its own! 🙂
