Inspiration for this Vegan Ice Cream Pie Recipe

Growing up, my parents made a mint chocolate ice cream dessert every year for Christmas night. In fact, they still do 40 years later! And no matter who is celebrating the holiday at our table, this ice cream dessert is always a huge crowdpleaser. So of course, I had to veganize it!

Their version uses peppermint ice cream, the kind with little pieces of peppermint candy. Having tried a handful of vegan ice cream options, our current favorite for this pie is Breyer’s almond milk ice cream—either the mint chip or cookies & cream. We also love Trader Joe’s cherry chocolate chip…you really can’t go wrong!
