Ice cream has been a food group that has slowly made it’s way back into our lives.

Mostly from my pregnancy but I have this feeling that Michelle has been enjoying it too. We grew up in sunny Florida so ice cream was always around. It’s a family favorite. Our older sister loves her ice cream. Although, now we enjoy mostly dairy-free ice cream, but we sometimes treat ourselves to gelato. As it’s a favorite of ours! And here is a little secret — it is how we take a mini vacation to Italy.

If you remember enjoying frozen drumsticks growing up, get ready to relive those memories with a little less guilt 😉  Today’s sweet treat tastes almost like those drumsticks with a purely twins twist of course. 

Semi-raw, dairy-free, gluten-free chocolate cookie crisp ice cream bonbons.

We like the idea of bonbons. And it’s a cute name, right?

As these bonbons have the perfect magic shell.

A thin chocolate sauce that magically hardens in seconds when poured over ice cream.

This recipe itself is magic. As with one bite it brought it back to our childhood.

There we were two 10 yr olds standing there in the kitchen laughing as we had chocolate all over our faces.

We were so impressed with how much these ice cream bonbons reminded us of those frozen drumsticks you see in the grocery store. Minus the cone part. That’s okay as we threw in our cookie crisp cereal to be our ‘cone’.

Those frozen drumsticks were a favorite childhood frozen treat. We would get so excited to get a box from the store to take home to enjoy. We loved the chocolate fudge filled drumstick cones.

Now after enjoying our updated version we are determined to re-create our original childhood favorite!

First we need to make homemade waffle cones!! A new mission of ours 😉

A fun summer treat. Dairy-free semi-raw vegan ice cream bon bons with some cookie crisp cereal and a rich chocolate sauce on top. Taste just like ice cream pops from the freezer.


    Ice Cream
  • 1 can coconut milk (about 13oz)
  • 1 banana (or could do a few drops stevia)
  • 1/4 cup coconut butter
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 -2/3 cup of our homemade cookie crisp cereal
  • Chocolate coating
  • 4 tablespoons raw cacao
  • 6 tablespoon coconut oil, liquid
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • few drops of stevia


  1. Place canned coconut milk, banana, coconut butter, and vanilla in Vita-mix blender.
  2. Begin to blend.
  3. Blend until smooth.
  4. Pour ice cream batter into a large bowl.
  5. Add in cookie crisp cereal. Or you can add in any cereal or 'treat' you desire. Or omit completely.
  6. Stir.
  7. Place bowl into freezer and stir every 25 minutes.
  8. We stirred ours for a total of 4-5 times before it was the perfect ice cream like texture.
  9. Once ice cream is easy to scoop begin scooping into balls using a cookie scooper.
  10. Place on wax lined tray.
  11. Continue to scoop until all ice cream is scooped.
  12. Place tray back into freezer to set as you make chocolate sauce.
  13. In a small bowl gather chocolate coating ingredients.
  14. Place raw cacao, vanilla, stevia and coconut oil into bowl and begin to stir.
  15. Remove bonbons from freezer and start to carefully dip bonbons into bowl of chocolate sauce.
  16. It will get a little messy. But worth it.
  17. Continue until bonbons are covered.
  18. You may have to double chocolate sauce depending on how well you want your coated.
  19. Store in freezer.

Now summer can come 🙂 as we will be ready to cool off with delicious ice cream bonbons.

I am going to try these this weekend…thinking of putting dark chocolate and nuts inside the balls:) I have done something similar with bananas, make banana soft serve scoop and then dip in the chocolate, But the coconut mixture but I like your method with the coconut products:) Thanks Ladies!

  11. These looks divine! Drumsticks were a childhood favorite, so I can’t wait to try them out! Perhaps with some date carmel swirled in! Yum!

    Posted on May 4, 2014 at 8:53 am
    1. Taylor mmm carmel would be great

      Posted on May 4, 2014 at 4:12 pm
  12. These look great. I am wondering though, why you ladies choose to place your ice cream mixture in the freezer instead of freezing some of the ingredients beforehand. One of my main reasons of getting the Vitamix was the ability to make ice cream in it (I’m obsessed). I recently made coconut ice cream using coconut cream that I froze into cubes. Just personal preference? Not everyone has a Vitamix? Different texture? Just curious. Thanks!

    1. Emma mainly because we do not always remember to freeze stuff. But freezing first then blending works too.

      Posted on May 30, 2014 at 3:35 pm
  13. These looks really good! I’m definitely gonna try your recipes. I’m glad I found your website.

  14. Is the raw cacao in liquid form or do you melt it before mixing it with the coconut oil etc. to make the coating?

    Posted on March 23, 2015 at 4:06 pm
    1. Raw cacao is powder, not cacao butter.
