Banana Ice Cream Sandwiches

According to the Food Network, the earliest known ice cream sandwich recipe was made with two slices of sponge cake. They have gradually evolved until the ice cream was eventually sandwiched between cookies and crispy wafers which more closely resembles the treat we enjoy today.

I have never been a particular fan of the wafers but since my first introduction ice cream being sandwiched between two cookies, I have never looked back.. Although I had originally thought that plant-based eating would mean saying farewell to such decadent deliciousness, it seems not! With “nice cream”, a tasty frozen filling, sandwiched between a couple of vegan chocolate chip oatmeal cookies, the treat lives on!

Plant-Based Ice Cream (“Nice Cream”) with Caramel Sauce

Ice cream is probably one of the most popular desserts enjoyed globally. Although various forms of the frozen treat have been around for centuries, today’s commercial ice cream can be full of saturated fats, refined sugars and preservatives. Fortunately, there are tasty, low fat, plant-based alternatives that mimic the creaminess of traditional ice cream but are without all fats and sugars.
