Cow Milk Free Ice Cream Sandwich Cake is Fast and it Tastes Great!

Have you seen those neat recipes for ice cream sandwich cakes that are floating around? Have you wanted to make one, but you are stuck with a cow's milk allergy?

My guess is that all of those recipes are tasty. As a matter of fact, in case you are not familiar with them I have posted a few at the end of this hub to make it easy for you to check out this amazing culinary concept.

However, ice cream can be one of the worst offenders out there for those who cannot consume cow's milk products. It's true that for some the reaction is worse than for others, but the symptoms can come fast and hard, and they can vary from unpleasant to dangerous.

This food allergy requires saying no to many recipes, but there's no need to despair! With great options like my ice cream cake recipe you can provide yourself and your family with fun and delicious party desserts.

Why Make Cow Milk Free Ice Cream Sandwich Cake?

For someone who does not know what their problem is, they may think they are dying of some sudden disease if there is a quick reaction to a product with cow's milk in it. The consequences are far more than just puzzling, they can be debilitating.

That said, you can see why a person who knows what the problem is would treat cow’s milk as if it is poison. Anything with the substance in it is a bête noire and avoided like the proverbial plague. It must be continually guarded against because it is everywhere.

You can also understand why a person with this allergy is a happy camper when they are offered a dessert that is very similar to those luscious ice cream styled treats everyone else can eat.

• SO Delicious Minis have allowed me to create one happy dessert that almost anyone can enjoy, but there is a word of caution for those who follow a GF diet:

We avoid large amounts of gluten because modern food processing adds way too much of it to products, and I have come to believe that the extra gluten is at the root of some health problems that are becoming more common.

While this ice cream cake recipe is cow's milk free and healthier than most other ice cream cake recipes, just for your information, it is not a GF recipe. For those who can eat some gluten, this dessert is a special treat.

Okay, I’m guessing that by now you just want to see my recipe for faux ice cream cake so here it is:

The Cow Milk Free Ice Cream Sandwich Cake Recipe

  • 1 Box So Delieicous Minis, Tofutti Cuties, or any brand of the other cow-milk-free ice cream sandwich, note: companies are coming out with new products which may arrive in your area soon!
  • 1 Package (can or carton) Rice Whip from Whole Foods or House Whip from Trader Joe’s, or you can make your own with one of the recipes for non-dairy whipped cream, *see link below.
  • 3/4 Cup Walnuts, finely chopped
  • 1 Package Ah!Laska or other brand of milk-free Chocolate Syrup, or make your own--again, very easy, *recipe linked below.
  • 1 Cup Strawberries, freshly sliced
  • 1-2 Tablespoons Candy Sprinkles, optional

Fast and Easy Instructions

  1. Chill an 8x8" glass dish for 10 minutes.
  2. Line the bottom of the dish with chocolate sandwiches.
  3. Add whipped topping to the sandwiches.
  4. Sprinkle the walnuts evenly over the whipped topping.
  5. Drizzle the chocolate syrup in a happy pattern over the walnuts.
  6. Add candy sprinkles, if desired.
  7. Cover and place in freezer if not serving immediately.
  8. To serve with drama, drizzle chocolate syrup on desert plates and place 2-3" squares of the ice cream cake in the center. Toss a few strawberry slices on top and drizzle chocolate syrup over all.
  9. Cover and store leftovers in the freezer.

Enjoy the oohs, aahs, and laughter, then begin planning your next faux ice cream cake using cow milk free ice cream sandwiches and your own topping variations. I’m seeing one loaded with blueberries and pecans in my future...

      I'm so glad your daughter will be able to enjoy this treat, and the others. I just posted a cow milk free pumpkin crunch that is every bit as good as any pumpkin pie I've ever had. I wish I had used a gluten free cake mix for the recipe, and am planning to make a note of that possibility in the comments.

      Thank you for your visit and for letting me know that you stopped in!

      It is delicious! I don't eat many soy products anymore because concentrated amounts don't play well with the thyroid, but this is one indulgence that makes for a really nice once-in-awhile treat. The cow's milk allergy has many faces...

      However, goat's milk is a story to smile about! The only problem with it is the roly-poly effect that I get after a few weeks of using it. Can't let my jeans get that tight!

      Appreciate that you came by and so glad you liked the recipe. Thanks kindly for your input!

      This ice cream desert sounds delicious! While I'm not as sensitive to cow's milk as you are, I do have problems with it, namely it produces a lot of mucous which aggravates my allergies and it is constipating, and while I can eat cheese (in condiment-size portions), I try to stay away from dairy.

      But goat's milk is another story. It is absolutely delicious. I would drink more of it if it weren't so expensive here, although I haven't really tested how my body reacts to it.

      The thing about soy these days is whether or not it is genetically modified. If I eat it, I try to find non-GMO soy.

      Great recipe, RT. Rated up and useful!

      This is great! I have a soy, milk, and gluten allergies so I would have to make the cookies and use almond or rice dream ice cream to make it but I love it! Great post!

      Check out for some of my recipes that revolve around this same subject. Voted up!
