How to Make Gluten Ice Cream Sandwiches
How to Make Gluten Ice Cream Sandwiches today to make my four-ingredient, no-bake ice cream sandwiches, and here to help me it’s from Love Health Fitness Week. What are you doing in my kitchen? Mmmm and I can tell you, it is delicious. They are raw, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, refined sugar-free, yeah. So this is going to be a super unhealthy dessert collaboration. Now, these dates if they are soft and fresh like they can get here in California, you probably don’t need to soak them, but when I am back home in Florida and I have to buy them packaged, I usually soak them to get them nice and soft so they blend up really easily in the processor, but make sure they are pitted. Next up, your raw almonds and the final ingredient for the cookie… Cacao powder and the difference between cacao powder and cocoa powder is that cacao powder is not as processed. Cocoa is basically where they heat it up and then it turns into cocoa. Cacao powder is just unprocessed, not heated, so it has much more nutritional value, has more anti-oxidants. , you got to go cacao, but if you are just like I want a delicious vegan dessert and I am okay if there is regular cocoa in it, then go for it. Regular cocoa powder is perfectly fine.
Both are tasty. A regular blender will work but I find that a heavy-duty blender does the trick just a little bit better. So you are going to want to let that go for a few minutes until you get a ball shape of the dough. To get the shape of our ice cream sandwiches, we are going to use a loaf pan, I like to use the ones that are just smaller than the standard size, I think they are eight by four, but any size will work. And we are going to line that with parchment paper so that it pops out easily at the end. Once we have our cookie dough, you can go ahead and break that in half. You are going to put half into the bottom of the loaf pan and press it in just like a is doing so beautifully, and you are going to save the other half for later. Now, these are going to be very rustic ice cream sandwiches, they don’t need to be perfect, so don’t worry if everything isn’t completely level, they are going to taste delicious just the same So before we start making our ice cream, we are going to go ahead and pop this in the fridge, it just helps when everything starts hardening a little bit so that we can make them in layers and it doesn’t get all mushy and crazy look So if you want to change up the flavor little bit, you are more than welcome to add some vanilla. If you want to keep it raw vegan, you can use vanilla bean and just you know to give it a little bit more flavor, this is just the basic ice cream sandwich which still tastes really good but if you do want to add a little more, you can definitely do that.
So for our ice cream, we only need one ingredient and that’s bananas. So I have made a two-ingredient ice cream video before that you can check out and it shows you a lot of different flavor options, but today I just wanted it to be easy, I’m going with one ingredient, banana ice cream. So with this ice cream sandwich recipe, you definitely want your bananas to be fully ripe, so when they are spotted and brown this is actually when they’re ripe. You don’t want to eat bananas when they are green or just yellow because they haven’t sweetened up yet, and depending on how ripe your bananas are, are going to determine how sweet this ice cream sandwich is going to turn out to be. So when they are yellow, there’s a lot of starch still in those bananas and when they are brown, it means the starch has converted into the sugars and that’s when we really want to eat it. Just like this. It could even be another day, so when you have like the bananas that you think are going bad, they are perfect for ice cream. And if you don’t particularly feel like just having banana ice cream, you can definitely add other fruits into it such as strawberries, blueberries, more dates if you like Yes, cinnamon, so anything that you really like, make it your flavored ice cream sandwich. that would be ambitious Speaking of ice cream, I want you guys to comment below and let us know what your favorite ice cream flavor is. Mine’s banana. Thumbs up for bananas. You want to make sure that those bananas are chopped up and frozen before you put them in the processor and you want to thaw them out for an If they are too hard, your processor will run a little bit crazy. And we don’t want that Once you’ve got your creamy ice cream flavor of choice, you can go ahead and pour that onto the bottom layer sandwich cookies. How to Make Gluten Ice Cream Sandwiches
And then what you want to do is stick it back into the freezer so that everything can just freeze up a little bit, therefore when you put the top layer So your banana ice cream layer has frozen, it should only take an hour or two depending on how cold your freezer is. You are going to just press that other half of the cookie dough onto the top, I’m making sure to cover everything but again it doesn’t need to be perfect. Back into the freezer, it goes, just one more time for a quick 20 to 30 minutes so it all freezes up nicely. Once the sandwiches are out of the freezer, you can remove that parchment paper, it should come out really easily, to pull the whole block of ice cream sandwiches out. Peel off the parchment and cut your large block of ice cream sandwich into whatever size bar you would like and just admire those beautiful layers. Just make sure you do it carefully. The cookies so gooey and yummy and like one of my favorite things about an original ice cream sandwich cookie is when the cookie part sticks to your fingers and that’s what I feel like is going to happen here.
