Vegan Birthday Cake Ice Cream Truffles

Have I got a MAJOR recipe for you! I had to get this easy vegan dessert recipe out there in the world, so you could be celebrating with me.

So... my birthday may be over *technically*, but I am still gonna celebrate with these Vegan Birthday Cake Ice Cream Truffles.

You know when you’ve tasted a dessert so good you eat half of it in one sitting? Like is perfectly sweet, creamy, tastes like cake batter, and made with only five simple ingredients! You just want to dig in & share the recipe! A delicious force to be reckoned with.

Well, one of my fave Dairy Free Ice Cream brands of all time just partnered with me for this recipe and you’re NOT going to want to miss this one! Get ready to head to the store and stock up on Hudsonville's Dairy Free ice cream!

(Yes, I am clapping, I don’t know if I can stop!)

Sprinkles, Cake, Ice Cream, ugh. Who *doesn’t* want this combo?

Rich cake batter flavored ice cream, filled with raw vegan cake bites, and rolled in colorful sprinkles. Literally all my childhood ice cream dreams come true. ​

Grab a scoop of Birthday Cake & let's party together!

Let me break down why I am loving Hudsonville's Birthday Cake Dairy Free Ice Cream:

1. It is PACKED with Flavor

Get ready to enjoy all the birthday cake flavors all year round.

2. Extremely Creamy & Smooth

I mean I can eat the whole carton without realizing it. (Is that really a pro? I'll let you decide.)

It truly is one of my favorite non-dairy ice creams that I have tried and so I am so glad to be partnering with them for this Birthday Cake Truffles recipe! They are Midwest creamery located in Michigan.

If you live in the Midwest, you can find them exclusively at Meijer stores (click here to find a location closest to you)! If you are curious to learn more about their brand or their Dairy Free Ice Cream flavors, you can find out more about them HERE.

Some Final Thoughts & Tips:

  • Flavor Variations: If you want to add a fun twist, feel free to add a layer of peanut butter, another layer of chocolate, or just the ice cream. Don't feel afraid to get creative here!

  • Freeze: Store the ice cream balls in an airtight container in your freezer for up to a month.
