Craving a cold snack? I have your back! Here's my little take on the not-so-healthy (but always tempting) ice cream sandwich. This has no added sugar, it's vegan, and I promise that it's just as satisfying and delicious as the real thing (if not better!).

Bananas are our main ingredient. I also incorporated a few fitness community favorites: peanut butter, oats, coconut oil and cacao powder. We're making the cookie layer base, the ice cream and a chocolate sauce to top it all off.

Oatmeal Cookie

  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter

Simply mash the banana and mix with the oats and the peanut butter until they're well combined. You can shape them into cookies, although I recommend using some kind of mold or tin for brownies or cupcakes. We'll be using the same tin for the banana ice cream too, so that the cookies and the ice cream have the same shape. Place the cookies in the oven and bake at 350F for 10-15 minutes. Leave to cool on a wired rack. Try not to eat any!

Strawberry Nice-cream

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 5-6 frozen or fresh strawberries

Mix both ingredients in a food processor or high speed blender until it has a creamy consistency. Pour the mixture into the same tin that you used to shape your cookies. Place in the freezer until the ice cream hardens. Once the ice cream bars are set, take the tin out and top the bars with cacao syrup:

Cacao Syrup

  • 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 tablespoon cacao powder

Mix both together with a spoon until well combined. Drizzle the cacao syrup on top of the strawberry nice-cream bars and return to freezer for a couple minutes, until the syrup has set. Carefully take the bars out of the tin by dipping a sharp knife in hot water, then slice the strawberry nice-cream bars into squares.

Time to put your strawberry nice-cream sandwich bars together! Grab a cookie and place a square-shaped piece of nice-cream on top. Eat it as is, or place another cookie on top to make it look like a real ice cream sandwich. There you have it: simple, vegan, and refined-sugar free strawberry nice-cream sandwich bars. Perfect to have as snack or dessert (or just for whenever you feel like it, let's be honest here). Enjoy!
