Almond + Blueberry Soft-Serve Sandwiches: vegan + gluten-free

There is nothing quite like an ice-cream sandwich. No matter how healthy I choose to live, or how often I resist the temptation of ordering dessert, there is something about an ice-cream sandwich that I cannot resist. It is the perfect combination of flavors and textures, turning any day into a great one, leaving me so very happy and satisfied. That is why I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this Almond + Blueberry Soft-Serve Sandwiches recipe by my dearest friend, and superfood chef, Julie Morris, especially since she has perfectly veganized this decadent creation.

Julie Morris is one of those women who has an infectious laugh, spark for life, and an uncanny ability to turn any “naughty” food recipe into a healthy one. She is the author of a long line of ridiculously successful books including Superfood Kitchen, Superfood Juices and my personal favorite, Superfood Smoothies. And to top them all, she has just released Superfood Snacks.

The refreshing temperature of these freezer-friendly snacks isn’t the only cool thing about this treat—each “sandwich” may seem decadent—yet, in actuality, it is primarily a serving of fruit and nuts, with very few other ingredients. The cookie crust is like very lightly sweetened almond sandies, and the creamy center is vibrantly fruity—a composition of natural flavors that truly shine proudly in this recipe. For lazy days, you can also simply serve the soft-serve and cookies together in a bowl!

 

I do hope that you enjoy this recipe as much as I have!

Feel free to share any changes or modifications you’ve made to this recipe. I am betting there are some awesome variations that could be made… mint ice cream and maca chocolate cookies perhaps?? Also, let me know if you’ve tried any of Julie’s cookbooks and what your favorite recipes are!

    I have made this recipe many times. The other day I made it for some friend one who can’t eat almonds so I substituted hazelnuts in the cookies and coconut milk in the ice cream. Very good!! And I cut the sugar down. I have both of her books and have many things. Always successful!!

      Oh awesome Carol! I LOVE the idea of using coconut milk… something about the coconuts make everything that much more decadent! Not to mention coconut fats are so healthy for the thyroid and the metabolism 🙂
