Recipe: Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich

recipe: Desserts


Having an ice cream cookie sandwich was one of my favorite treats off the ice cream truck as a kid. This recipe features two no-bake cookies made with pureed dates and nuts that sandwich a healthy version of Häagen-Daz ice cream made with cashews. I have to tell you this recipe is amazing and brings my ice cream sandwich memories to a whole new level! If you are short on time, try using your favorite frozen yogurt or a dairy-free coconut milk ice cream as filling instead. Don’t be intimidated by the thought of making your own ice cream sandwich. I promise this recipe is easier than it looks and makes the perfect healthy dessert!

  • 3/4 cup raw nuts (try walnuts, cashews, macadamias, or a combination)
  • 3/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • At least one circle cookie cutter
