Vegan Birthday Cake Ice cream
This homemade vegan birthday cake soft serve is creamy, delicious, and really easy to make! Prepare to have the little kid inside of you jump right out!
Ice cream used to be one of my favourite treats as a kid. My parents used to take my brother and I to Dairy Queen at least once every couple of weeks for a blizzard or a dipped cone. Sometimes we got REALLY lucky and they’d take us to Mable Slab, or other local ice cream shops in town for a treat. I ALWAYS got birthday cake flavoured ice cream when I got the chance. Like 10/10 times. It has always been my favourite and will always remain my favourite!
However in the last 4-5 years ice cream has never agreed with my stomach. I’m definitely not lactose intolerant, but anytime ice cream was involved I felt like I was. I sometimes would have IBS flares for days after eating ice cream. My body was screaming for me to stop eating the dang thing, so I finally decided to listen and come up with a vegan version of my favourite ice cream!
This version is so simple and quite possibly my favourite flavour yet! It requires just 5 basic ingredients and a very simple method.

Coconut milk (full fat)

Why this cake batter soft serve is the best
Tastes just like cake batter
very easy with minimal ingredients
Just the right amount of sweetness
You could even add some real birthday cake chunks into the mix! The easiest way to do this is use a box mix, and make it according to directions. Another way is to buy a few vanilla cupcakes from your local bakery or grocery store and crumble them up. This would also work out really well. If you’re feeling REALLY adventurous, you could even make my Vegan Shamrock Cupcake base recipe without the icing, and mix pieces of that into the ice cream!
This is the perfect ice cream to make when you want a non-dairy ice cream. It’s amazing all on it’s own, but if you want to get crazy, this would make a KILLER ice cream sandwich! Or even a base for a birthday cake milkshake, YUM!
For this recipe I did use my Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker! I can’t say for sure if it will work without one, however when I put my leftover ice cream in the freezer it solidified even further and created more of a frozen ice cream! So I do think it would work in the freezer alone, it just wouldn’t come out as soft serve. If you do test this this out in the freezer and it works please let me know in the comments!
