Cookies and cream . . .
Is a classic flavor that can be made from scratch using nutrient-dense foods. Start with a sweet vanilla ice cream, and add homemade chocolate cookies. The end result is an amazing frozen treat.
Dairy free? No problem! Use coconut milk instead of cream. The cookies are already gluten and dairy free.
This also makes a great holiday or birthday dessert. Add a touch of peppermint extract for a unique minty Christmas confection.
The next time you’re in the mood for a delicious ice cream, whip up a batch of gluten free chocolate graham crackers. Use some of them to make cookies and cream ice cream and save the rest for munching. You’ll get two treats and a happy family.
