I think you’d be hard pressed to find a person who doesn’t like ice cream sandwiches. After all, isn’t the saying “we ALL scream for ice cream”? Problem is, I screamed for ice cream too much, and I gained weight. I still want to eat ice cream though darn it!
So I beat the system, and created an ice cream sandwich that’s under 100 calories. Booyah!
What you’ll need:
A banana or two
Pizzelle Italian Waffle Cookies (I found them at World Market)
Slice each banana and lay them on a paper plate. Put them in the freezer for 8+ hours. I did mine for about 20 :). Once they’re frozen, scrape them off the plate into a blender. Blend them within an inch of their life, scraping down the sides periodically. Eventually, you’ll see this amazing soft serve texture. Yum! Scoop about 1/4 cup of banana ice cream onto a waffle cookie. Top with another waffle cookie. Each cookie is only 23 calories! Aren’t they pretty?
You can easily add variations to the ice cream — peanut butter, sugar free chocolate syrup, etc. — to make it different! I had a banana whip ice cream sandwich for breakfast. Yes, seriously.
Want to knock off a few calories? Have it open faced!
Here’s the nutritional info for the Banana Whip Ice Cream Sandwich (two cookies):
This recipe will make about 3 or 4 sandwiches, depending on how big your bananas are to begin with :). Love this banana recipe? Check out my 2 ingredient banana pancakes that are 31 calories per minicake!
