O’MY! Dairy Free Gelato
Hello, hi my new favorite frozen dessert: O’MY! Gelato made with plant based ingredients, no artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners.
So creamy and delicious!
For this recipe, I used their chocolate and strawberry flavors and found them at my local Sprouts. But they have so many more flavors like orange cream, coffee chip, mint chip, vanilla bean and cake batter to name a few.
If you love this recipe, you are going to love this Upside Down Banana Cake Gluten Free and Dairy Free.
Or these Prosecco Popsicles Grapefruit. Perfect summer recipes!

Diary Free Ice Cream Cake
- Line a 9×5 inch loaf pan with plastic wrap. I used two pieces going in opposite directions to be sure everything was well covered.
- Remove the strawberry gelato from the freezer and let it sit at room temperature for 5 minutes to soften. Use an ice cream scoop to scoop the strawberry gelato into the bottom of the liked pan and then use a cake spatula to smooth the ice cream into an even layer. Top with strawberry slices and place in the freezer for 1 hour.
- Remove the chocolate gelato from the freezer and let it sit at room temperature for 5 minutes to soften. Use an ice cream scoop to scoop the chocolate gelato over the strawberries and use a cake spatula to smooth the ice cream into an even layer. Freeze for one hour.
- Place your cookie crumbles into a bowl or food processor and then add in the melted vegan butter. Stir or pulse until everything is combined and the mixture resembles wet sand. Press the mixture over the chocolate layer and pack it tightly. Freeze for at least 2 hours before serving.
- To serve, remove the cake from the pan and turn it over onto a cutting board so the ice side is facing up. Use a sharp knife to slice into one inch pieces. Enjoy!
