For National Ice Cream Month, I’m teaming up with Swell Ice Cream to create this better-for-you *and* gluten free chocolate cookie ice cream sandwich. It’s a decadent treat with half the calories of the usual store-bought cookie ice cream sandwiches!
I scream, you scream, we all scream for…ice cream that tastes amazing, provides nutritional benefits, and isn’t loaded with calories!
Wait…is all that even possible??
My friends, allow me to make your day!
Gluten Free Chocolate Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich
Both my husband and my dad LOVE cookie ice cream sandwiches, but the kinds you pick up at the convenience store pack a whopping 1000 calories or so each. Yikes!!
Luckily, my husband (the chef of the family) specializes in dreaming up better-for-you versions of our favorite desserts! This “lightened up” cookie ice cream sandwich (that tastes just as decadent as the original) is his latest creation. Bonus: it’s gluten free too!
For the cookies, we used my husband’s amazing Gluten Free Dark Chocolate Avocado Cookies. We recently discovered Swell, The Next Wave of Ice Cream – since it is certified Gluten Free, AND low calorie, Swell Ice Cream is the perfect partner for my husband’s cookies!
Did I mention Swell Ice Cream is also high in protein and lower in sugar than regular ice cream too? Pretty amazing!
TIP: For our ice cream sandwiches, we doubled the size of our cookies (in the original recipe we used 1 Tablespoon of batter per cookie). This makes them the perfect size for our ice cream slices, as shown below.
Because it’s way easier than scooping, we cut each pint of Swell Ice Cream into 2-3 “slices” of ice cream. These slices layer perfectly in the middle of your cookie ice cream sandwiches.
To build your cookie ice cream sandwiches:
- Place one cookie on a plate as the base of your ice cream sandwich (click here for our gluten free chocolate avocado cookie recipe).
- Layer one Swell Ice Cream slice on this cookie and remove the carton wrapped around the ice cream.
- Top with a second gluten free chocolate cookie and enjoy!
A free printable copy of this recipe is available at the bottom of the post.
Not only are our chocolate cookie ice cream sandwiches rich and decadent, but they ring in at about half the calories of the store-bought versions! Plus, they’re gluten free! Win-win!
