Key Lime Pie Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches — A sweet and creamy dessert recipe made with simple ingredients and no added sugar!
And a very happy September to you too. Straight up CRAY that we are already in fall territory. But for now, I’m still fully loaded in summer mode.
…Especially since pie and ice cream are invited to this party.
I friggen love ice cream sandwiches. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. I could eat one every single day (after my dream meal of a bomb salad, apple, and peanut butter covered carrot) and be a very happy gal.
Yet nothing takes the cake (or ice cream?) on summer ‘zerts quite like key lime pie.
If I could take a forkful of mid-July sunshine sprinkled with beach trips, and a drizzle of relaxation, it would taste like key lime pie.
Wedged in between an ice cream sammie? Now. We. Talkin’.
Way back in the ancient times of the Sinful Nutrition youtube channel, I made an ice cream out of bananas and avocados, and fell in love in a hopeless place. So naturally, I made it into a sammich.
Now even though there’s no sugar added to these babes, they are sweet as the dickens as is. Plus they’re dipped in white chocolate…so there’s that too.
BUT..since there isn’t too much fat added to them, these freeze up mighty hard. Please for the sake of your front teeth and your eating pleasure..LET THEM THAW. A simple 10 minutes on the counter before you eat is all they need.
Which if you eat dinner like me, is just enough time to scarf down a meal, and get to the good stuff. 😉
