Cake Batter Ice Cream

Secretly healthy birthday cake batter ice cream, with no eggs or dairy! 

Cake Batter Ice Cream

I had the privilege of babysitting two adorable little girls last night, and I brought my Vitamix.

As a teenager, I didn’t really like babysitting, even though do I love children.

It’s just… after a while, I get to a point where I never want to see another Barbie or play the role of the dad in “House,” can’t stand the show Dragon Tales, and wish the kids would just go to bed already.

(Now I am very sorry for tormenting my own babysitters and never going to sleep for them.)

That being said, I had the rare opportunity (rare because I pretty much stopped babysitting after high school) to babysit for these little angels last night and actually found myself having fun!

Vegan Birthday Cake Ice Cream

I got the cake batter ice cream (or birthday cake ice cream) idea from my popular Cake Batter Milkshakes.

And last night seemed like a perfect opportunity to try it out, since kids love sprinkles. Plus, kids seem to really love blending things. In any case, it beat watching Dexter’s Laboratory. 

The girls adored the cake batter ice cream, which we called “Fairy Dust Ice Cream.”

Did you ever babysit?

When I babysat, the kids often wanted to just watch tv, which made my job easy, but boring. And some of the shows were really awful. Cow and Chicken, Ed Edd and Eddy, Lizzie McGuire, SpongeBob…

(Ok, so I secretly liked SpongeBob.)

Were you good about going to bed for your own babysitters? I was not. But these kids were incredibly good.

I’m already looking forward to spending time with them again. Our next project is to cake batter-ify these Vegan Donuts.

Or, as the girls would say, fairy dust doughnuts!

Cake Batter Ice Cream

Secretly healthy and vegan birthday cake batter ice cream, with no eggs or dairy.
5/5 (4)
Total Time 5 minutes
Yield 4 – 6 servings


  • 2 cups milk of choice
  • 4 tbsp sweetener of choice
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp sprinkles, or homemade sprinkles
  • 1/2 cup butter, or coconut, almond, or cashew butter (for no butter, try this Coconut Milk Ice Cream)


  • *For more cake batter flavor, add 1/4 tsp butter extract, which is surprisingly vegan. If you don’t have an ice cream maker or high-speed blender, see these directions.
    Whisk ingredients. If you have an ice cream machine, churn according to manufacturer’s instructions for your machine. Or if you have a high-speed blender like a vitamix, pour the mixture into ice cube trays and freeze, then blend the frozen ice cubes until smooth, using the tamper to blend evenly. Eat now, or freeze about an hour for a firm texture. Due to the lack of preservatives, homemade ice cream is best the day it’s made (you can technically freeze up to a month and thaw before consuming).

    This looks yummy! I just treated my family to an ice cream maker, so we’re trying a vanilla ice cream recipe as I type! I was wondering, can this be made in an ice cream maker? I’m hoping so bc my daughter, even though she’s almost 13, would LOVE this recipe!

    Wow, you must be the BEST babysitter EVER!

  2. Audrey says

    Did you use sweetened or unsweetened almond milk? I try to follow recipes 100% the first time (then decide whether or not to tweak it for my personal tastes).

    Hi, Katie,
    Used to love cake batter ice cream, so this is great, but isn’t it really ice milk if you don’t use full fat coconut milk? Would putting it in an ice cream maker make it creamy?
    Thanks for all you do!

  4. Unofficial CCK Helper says

    You need to use the tamper. For easier blending, either thaw a little more before blending or you can double the recipe, which makes for smoother blending as well.

    First of all, I don’t do pinit, nor tweet or any of the other social media things but I do like your site and your recipes help a lot because I am diabetic. Thank you for all your recipes, and I do like the fact that you allow us to print some of them. I have tried everything to get a print of the Cake Batter Ice Cream but nothing works. Please don’t ask me to cut and paste as I’m very old and am lucky to have found your website!….lol.
    Please tell how I can get a clean printable copy of this recipe.
    Will be truly grateful.
