Ultimate Raw Vegan Ice Cream Sandwiches

  5 rater(s)

This dessert shouldn’t even be legal in the world of raw vegan recipes, but it is and we couldn’t be happier about it. Even though this is raw vegan, it is a bit on the indulgent side, so don’t go crazy with portions. It’s a great way to show friends or family that raw vegan desserts can be incredibly sweet and delicious.

Ingredients

For the Brownie

  • 1 c raw walnuts
  • 1 c dates, pitted and roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp. raw cacao powder
  • 1 tsp. alcohol-free vanilla extract

For the Ice Cream

  • 3 bananas, peeled and frozen overnight
  • 1 tbsp. cacao nibs (optional topping)

Instructions

For the Brownie

  1. Add all of the ingredients to a food processor and pulse until you see that a dough-like ball has formed. Press half of this mixture into the bottom of small lined bread pan. This will be the bottom half of both of your sandwiches. 
  2. Grease a small bread pan with a little coconut oil before spooning half of the brownie mixture into the pan. Press it down into the pan and place it in the freezer. Reserve the other half of the brownie mixture in a bowl and set aside.

For the Ice Cream

  1. Add the bananas and agave to a high-speed blender and blend until you get a thick and creamy consistency. It should look similar to a sorbet or soft serve.
  2. Remove the brownie pan from the freezer and spoon the ice cream into the pan, spreading it into an even layer.
  3. Take the remaining half of the brownie mixture and spread it evenly across the top of the layer of ice cream to complete the sandwich mold. Place the pan back in the freezer for about one or two hours to allow it to completely solidify.
  4. Remove the ice cream sandwich mold from the freezer and begin cutting it into little squares. Grab your ice cream sandwich, top with optional cacao nibs, and enjoy. Cover the pan with plastic wrap or foil, and place back in the freezer. They will stay fresh for about a month.
