I Scream for Ice Cream with Sweet Potato Cookies


I Scream for Ice Cream with Sweet Potato Cookies

The Cookie Department stole my heart. Seriously, look it up. It’s a thing. I was able to get a hold of the company’s cookies: the full throttle vegan sweet potato oatmeal cranberry cookie. If you find yourself feeling ill, eat these. They are said to be “fully functional” and I’m corny as hell because I was so happy after eating just one, hahah! When I received my package I quickly tried one and thought, “Damn, these are soft”. AND ME BEING A FLUFFY VEGAN…I loved it. I admire soft cookies, they are like the pillows that take me to sleep at night. They’re that good. Now they just need more vegan flavors! Maybe a vegan flavor of each kind would be short of amazing. And I would buy them all!

I decided to make some ice cream cookies because those two words, ICE CREAM + COOKIES, have been on my foodie bucket list for a while. *mentally crosses it out* 
I made these for me and my best friend. It was his birthday and we didn’t get the time to see each other beforehand so I drove to his house waaaay past our bedtime and handed him a sammie (cookie sandwich) and some croissant samosas(didn’t get time to picture) and a his big wrapped present. Oh he ate this cookie like crazy! Even though it was so cold, he ate this within 5 minutes. *success *thank you Cookie Department
You’re probably wondering how this tower was made. Well let me tell ya, I don’t really need to write down a recipe, because half of it I didn’t produce anyway (and I wouldn’t want it any other way). 

Here’s how I did it:

The ingredients: 3 frozen bananas, 2 teaspoons of cinnamon, 1/2 cup of cranberries, and chocolate to cover, kinda. You blend all of that, except chocolate, and place in a round container that is similar to the cookie’s circumference. Leave it in the freezer overnight or until they are firm enough to handle for more than 5 minutes without melting! I shaved off the sides of the ice cream once I took it out so that I can get the cranberries to show. You don’t have to do this. 
These two cookies work well with this ice cream. I put more cranberries but feel free to omit them. It kind of tastes like heaven, though. I am horrible at describing food, I use heaven for everything. Serious. 
I guess this is more of a personal post than anything I’ve ever written on here, and I kinda like it! I’ve been wanting to do more personal posts because I forget that I can virtually do anything with this blog and I have been accustomed to filtering out my personal life because I had only found that I would find someone’s blog to get one thing: the recipe. Doing more personal posts would help me take off the “share memories of everything” on my bucket list. Hmm, we’ll see where this goes!
Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Hey there. I just found your page and I LOVE it! For some reason it just really brought a smile to my face and made me really really happy. So I thought you should know 🙂 and I should say thank you 🙂
    And while I am at it, I was wondering if you have a recipe for the sweet potato cookies featured above? I am a cookie monster at heart and have had a recent obsession with sweet potatoes, so I thought combining both could actually be epic, or 'heaven' as you like to call it 🙂
    Anyways, keep up the great work and delicious recipes. You are making people happy.
    Smiles, Julie
