Cookies & Cream Oreo Vegan Popsicles (dairy-free, 4 ingredients)
Yes, I realize it is a tad cold out there right now, but these have chunks of cookie! And black cocoa.
So put on a sweater and eat these delicious chilly things. Black cocoa, combined with cashew cream and oreos, creates an extremely decadent chocolate popsicle!
And the nutrition is not to be sneezed at either, with cashews contributing healthy fats, and black cocoa offering magnesium and mood-boosting aspects.
And actually they are so easy to throw together! And in case you didn’t know, oreo cookies are vegan. Now, of course they are still processed, and as a rule I avoid anything processed in my recipes, but balance, you know? There comes a time in life when an oreo is needed.
And that is this time for me. What with dealing with subzero temperatures, helping my family through winter schedules, and trying to finish editing my book, I think an oreo break is warranted, don’t you?
So I hope you enjoy these pops, and make them this weekend.
Share on social media if you love them! I’d love to see how well you got yours out of the mold. I hope you did better than me. I think I stuffed one-too-many cookies in there, haha!

Make the Cashew Cream
- Submerge the cashews in water overnight, in refrigerator.
Next day, rinse them, and put them in blender. Add 1 cup of plant milk and blend until creamy. If you want it to be creamier and easier to pour into molds, feel free to add more of the plant milk at this point but hold some back for the next steps. Add in the maple syrup if you think it needs sweetening.
Remove half the cashew cream mixture and set aside - it's the vanilla portion of the popsicle mixture.
- Add the black cocoa to the remaining cashew cream in the blender. Blend until creamy. Here is where you may need to add some or all of the remaining milk. This is your chocolate portion of the popsicle mixture.
Fill the popsicle molds by alternating between pouring the chocolate cream, adding oreo chunks, pouring the vanilla mix. I suggest pouring in a bit of chocolate cashew mix first before adding cookies. I added a cookie chunk at the tip of mine, and that made the tip breakoff of some of my pops, so next time I will first pour in the mixture and then start cookie-stuffing.
- Freeze your pops overnight.
- To remove, dip mold in a pot of hot water and tug until they slide out. It's quite a process, don't let anyone tell you removing is easy. BUT once they are out, eat!
