If you have a sweet tooth but don’t love the calories that come with it, you’re not alone! That’s why I have been working on some sweet treats that come with minimal diet damage. First up is the ice cream sandwich. This week’s dessert is inspired by mint Oreo cookies. If you love cookies and if you love ice cream, then you have to make these. Not only are they delicious, but they are super easy to make and kid friendly.
All you need is a box of Enjoy Life Double Chocolate Chip Cookies and Halo Top Mint Chip Ice-cream. Enjoy Life products are usually found the in the gluten free section, since they are free of all allergens, which by the way doesn’t make them any less delicious. These literally saved me when I was breast feeding my daughter who had multiple food allergies. As for the Halo Top, you need to head to Whole Foods. One box of cookies and one pint of Halo Top will yield you six ice-cream sandwiches. Spread the ice cream on one cookie and top with another cookie and freeze, can't get more simple than that!
