Unlike typically colorful desserts for this time of year, the black ice creams take a cue from popular squid ink burger buns and other black foods to give it a gothic look. Created by designer, baker and maker Melissa from the blog The Faux Martha, the scoop of black ice cream is a vegan recipe perfect for people who have allergies or adhere to strict dietary restrictions.

Made with special dark cocoa, the vegan black ice creams is naturally free of dairy and has a dark chocolate and coconut flavor. To make your own homemade quart of the frozen treat, you will need yummy ingredients such as pure sugar cane, unsweetened almond milk and coconut cream. The cornstarch and golden syrup give the ice cream a super scoop-able texture, so you can serve it straight out of the freezer.
