Hi Guys! Welcome back to the food blog ;)
Today we have one of the most decadent summer recipes I know of, the amazing ice cream sandwich. Only this time, we have made it #modeldiet worthy, filled it with all the good stuff and left all the not-so-good-for-you stuff out!
The recipe is pretty simple and straight forward, you just need a blender and a freezer. I bet you want to get on with the reading now and just make the recipe. Let's go!
- 2 cups soaked dates (I used this kind) + some of the soaking water
- 4 Tbsp peanut butter
- 1/2 cup oat flour
- 2 Tbsp almond flour
- 2-4 Tbsp cacao nibs
- Vanilla and sea salt to taste
- 2 ripe, frozen bananas (buy fresh in your local supermarket and freeze them when spotty on the skin. Spotty = sweetness)
- Dash of plant milk
- Vanilla to taste
- Vitamix Blender
- Add all the dough ingredients except oat flour and cacao nibs to a blender. Blend until smooth, don't worry if it's a bit runny since you will be adding the flour.
- Add flour and cacao nibs and divide into two. Spread into two seperate square molds lined with parchment paper. Add to the freezer for 60 minutes
- After an hour, take the cookie dough squares out of the freezer. Start preparing the ice cream by adding two frozen bananas, a dash of vanilla and plant milk to a high speed blender and blend until creamy
Spread the ice cream on one of the cookie dough squares. Add the other square on top and freeze for another hour! A bonus tip is to spread a bit of peanut butter mixed with agave syrup on one or both squares as it makes the ice cream sandwiches extra delish!
- After an hour, take out the big ice cream sandwich and cut it up into 4-6 sandwiches. Ready to serve and eat like this or re-freeze them for a future delight! Let them thaw for 2-3 minutes before eating them as the banana ice cream can be a bit hard.
I hope you like it! If you make it, take a photo and tag @celiahjorth on Instagram and I will re-share it on my stories!
