Get ready to start craving healthy because these cool and creamy carob ice cream sandwiches are decadent on a wholesome level, with real food ingredients like almond butter, coconut milk, dates, and eggs. The ice cream center is vegan, and the ice cream sandwiches are paleo and gluten free.
Combine the ice cream ingredients in a small pot over high heat. The second the mixture boils, turn off the heat and whisk for 1 minute until clump free. Allow the mixture to cool before pouring into an ice cream machine. Follow your ice cream manufacturer's instructions.
Bake the Date and Almond Cookie Sheet
Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with a silpat or parchment paper.
In a food processor fitted with a metal blade, add all the cookie ingredients. Blend on high for 2 minutes until extremely smooth. Pour out onto the prepared baking tray and use a spatula to create a smooth rectangle shape about 1/4" thick.
Bake for 14 minutes and allow to cool completely. Use a butter knife to score straight down the center of the cookie to divide in half.
Assemble the Ice Cream Sandwiches
Spread the ice cream over half of the cookie about 1/2" thick while the ice cream is in the "soft serve" phase. Work a spatula under the other cookie and fold it over the ice cream to create a sandwhich. Carefully transfer to a cutting board lined with parchment paper. Cover and freeze for at least 2 hours or until completely frozen. Cut into squares and serve.
