We are at the end of a heat wave right now and I’m looking forward to a much needed cool front to bring in less humid air because it’s so hot right now….I’m sweating just looking outside the window.  Ok, maybe not but I’m really very hesitant to go outside because the humidity just takes your breath away as soon as you open the door.

But since it’s nearly impossible to stay indoors during the summer because all the fun things happen outside, I like to whip up sweet treats to help us stay cool.  And these Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches are our go-to dessert when the temperatures are on the rise.

Keeping in mind we still have a few more months of bathing suit season (I just scheduled my pool closing for October 10th), I reach for my favorite light ice cream to make these easy ice cream sandwiches. Open Nature® Scandal-less light ice cream products help keep this cool treat on the less guilty side.

Open Nature Scandal-less ice cream is a guilt-free indulgence that’s low in calories, low in fat and contains more protein than regular ice cream. Each pint has between 240 and 370 calories, so you can accidentally devour the entire container without feeling bad at all!

So, to celebrate National Ice Cream Month (Did you know July is National Ice Cream MONTH??), you can make your very own Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich recipe using your favorite Open Nature Scandal-less ice cream.  My favorite is Birthday Cake because you know my obsession with birthday cake and Funfetti flavored everything.

How to Make a Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich

This easy Ice Cream Sandwich recipe is so simple to customize using your favorite ice cream and cookies.  If you don’t feel like baking because…..who wants to turn on the oven during a heat wave….you can find sooooo many freshly baked cookies in the bakery at your local ACME Markets, too!

Tips for making an ice cream sandwich:

  • Be sure your ice cream is soft enough to scoop easily and to press between two cookies. But not melted, of course.
  • Line a baking sheet with your favorite cookies flat side up.
  • Place a hearty scoop of Open Nature Scandal-less ice cream in the center of each cookie.
  • Top the ice cream with a second cookie flat side down and press gently to spread the ice cream to the edges of the cookie.
  • Transfer the baking sheet to the freezer and freeze until firm.
  • If coating with sprinkles or chocolate chips, gently press sprinkles onto the exposed parts of the ice cream to coat.
  • Place the garnished ice cream sandwiches back on the baking sheet and return to the freezer until ready to serve.
