Raw Ice Cream Sandwich

What’s cooler than a creamy scoop of ice cream on a hot summer day? How about a frozen, non-dairy, natural and 100% raw treat you made yourself, from scratch? Nothing beats homemade, and this chilly confection is a DIY superstar that I scream, you scream and everyone at your backyard get-together is going to scream for. Tucked between two layers of cacao & walnut brownies is a wonderland of sweet, dairy-free ice cream, spun up in your very own blender. Dunk the whole thing in a chocolaty-coconut coating that hardens into a candy-like shell when frozen, and wave goodbye to that ice cream truck—for good!
