Want to Make Lizzo's Viral TikTok Vegan Ice Cream Bread? Here's How

The moment Lizzo posted a TikTok video showing the world how she turned vegan Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream into a loaf of tasty bread, our mouths started watering—and we wondered whether we should recreate it ourselves.

In the new TikTok series Celeb Eats, made in collaboration between PEOPLE Magazine and Sweety High, that very recipe gets put to the test by influencer chef Tway Nguyen (aka @taedabae) in the series' very first episode. Does it earn a chef's kiss, or does the recipe fall flat? Keep reading to find out more.

The Original

Lizzo shared the epic recipe earlier this summer on TikTok. The video shows her mixing the ice cream and flour, buttering up a glass loaf pan and smoothing the batter out in the pan before popping it in the oven. Her result is a perfectly fluffy-looking loaf of bread—which she apparently made into French toast for brunch.

Tway's Vegan Ice Cream Bread

In the very first episode of Celeb Eats, Tway Nguyen replicates Lizzo's vegan ice cream bread recipe to find out whether it's worth all of the fuss. Starting with a pint of Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Cookie Dough Non-Dairy ice cream, she follows all of the steps, resulting in a delicious-smelling loaf after just 45 minutes.

So what's Tway's verdict? The chef decides that if she were to try it again, she'd likely do things a little bit differently. Personally, she'd add more flour and baking soda, and mix the ice cream for even longer in order to incorporate more air and leave it lighter and fluffier. When we decide to make the recipe ourselves, we'll be sure to follow her tips.
