The classic summer taste of s’mores don’t have to be just for your campfire! We created this layered s’mores ice cream that is decadent and creamy, but also allergy friendly.

Our s’mores ice cream is a toasted marshmallow flavored base with layers of chocolate ganache and crumbled Goodie Girl s’more cookies. You can easily swap the cookies for gluten free graham crackers if you want instead!

This allergy friendly s’mores ice cream recipe is:

  • Dairy free
  • Gluten free
  • Egg free
  • Vegan
  • Peanut free

How to make dairy free s’mores ice cream

This recipe starts with a marshmallow-flavored ice cream with added s’mores mix ins. Even though there are a few different elements, it’s pretty easy to make and put together.

Here are the steps for making this ice cream (the full recipe card is at the end of the post):

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the oatmilk, canned coconut milk, Silk heavy whipping cream, Torani syrup (or maple syrup), the vanilla, and dash of salt.
  • Alternatively you can use a blender to blend everything and make sure it’s smooth.
  • Turn on your ice cream machine and add your ice cream mix and churn for 20-30 minutes until frozen to the consistency of soft serve or thicker.
  • While the ice cream is churning, make your ganache: melt the allergy friendly chocolate chips in a microwaveable dish.
  • Whisk the coconut milk into the melted chocolate. As this cools, it will thicken and have the texture of fudge.
  • Cool to room temperature before adding to the ice cream.

Putting it all together:

  • Crumble the s’more sandwich cookies into medium pieces and fold them into the ice cream (you can also use gluten free graham crackers here if you want instead).
  • If you are serving this ice cream right away, drizzle the chocolate ganache on top and serve.
  • If you are freezing this for later, spread half the ice cream in a freezer-safe glass dish. Drizzle half the chocolate ganache on top. Spread the other half of the ice cream, and drizzle the rest of the chocolate ganache on top of the ice cream.
  • When you’re ready to serve, warm the ice cream up on the counter for a bit or warm it up in the microwave for 30 seconds or so to help with scooping.

Like we mentioned in our peach ice cream post, if you love making ice cream at home, I highly recommend getting a great ice cream maker. A high quality ice cream maker can add lots of air to your ice cream, resulting in a smoother and creamier dairy free ice cream.

What kind of dairy free milk or cream can I use?

For this recipe, we used a mix of extra creamy oat milk (like Oatly full fat oat milk), full fat canned coconut milk, and Silk dairy free heavy cream.

If you have celiac disease, make sure to use oat milk that is certified gluten free! There are several brands of oat milk that are gluten free, Oatly uses certified gluten free oats in their US products.

We used what we had on hand at the moment, and wanted to try a blend of coconut milk and oat milk for this recipe. But you can make the ice cream entirely out of the canned coconut milk or the Silk heavy cream.

You can use oat milk for all of this recipe, but I would personally avoid that since it doesn’t have enough fat to make a really creamy ice cream like canned coconut milk does. The Silk dairy free heavy cream or the Silk dairy free half and half are both great for ice cream mixed with the canned coconut milk.

Allergy friendly graham crackers

Goodie Girl sent us a few boxes of their s’mores sandwich cookies (which are gluten free, egg free, nut free, and dairy free) as part of the Online Nourished Festival and we thought they’d go perfectly in this recipe!

If you don’t want to use the Goodie Girl cookies or you can’t find them, you can use regular gluten free graham crackers for this recipe instead (it will probably also reduce the sugar in this recipe as well).

We created a gluten free and vegan graham cracker recipe that would be perfect in this ice cream!

If you don’t have time to make your own graham crackers, here are a few allergy friendly options for packaged gluten free graham crackers:

Ingredients

Ice Cream

Chocolate Ganache ribbon

Instructions

Ice cream:

  • In a medium to large bowl, whisk together the oatmilk, canned coconut milk, Silk heavy whipping cream, Torani syrup (or maple syrup), the vanilla, and dash of salt.
  • Whisk until smooth. If you have a lot of lumps in your coconut milk, put everything in a blender and blend until smooth.
  • Turn on your ice cream machine and add your ice cream mix and churn for 20-30 minutes until frozen to your liking.
  • If you want to add some vodka to the ice cream to prevent if from freezing very hard, in the freezer, add the vodka into the ice cream near the end of churning.

Chocolate ganache:

  • While the ice cream is churning, melt the allergy friendly chocolate chips in a microwaveable cup or dish for 30 seconds at a time (stirring each time) until the chocolate is fully melted.
  • Whisk the coconut milk into the melted chocolate. As this cools, it will thicken and have the texture of fudge.
  • Cool to room temperature before adding to the ice cream.

Putting it all together

  • Crumble the Goodie Girl s'more sandwich cookies into medium pieces and fold them into the ice cream (you can also use gluten free graham crackers here if you want instead).
  • If you are serving this ice cream right away, drizzle the chocolate ganache on top and serve.
  • If you are freezing this for later, spread half the ice cream in a freezer-safe glass dish. Drizzle half the chocolate ganache on top. Spread the other half of the ice cream, and drizzle the rest of the chocolate ganache on top of the ice cream.
  • When you're ready to serve, warm the ice cream up on the counter for a bit or warm it up in the microwave for 30 seconds or so to help with scooping.

  1. This ice cream looks sensational, Sarah! I would just note that those of us who are strictly gluten free for medical reasons need to ensure that the oat milk being used is truly gluten free (i.e., made from oats that are both certified gluten free and are purity protocol oats) as most are NOT gluten free. If a company refuses to verify that they use such oats, that indicates their product is not GF.

    Thanks for the recipe!
    Shirley
