Tahini & Honey Ice Cream Sandwiches To Die For
Learn how to make delicious dairy and egg-free ice cream from coconut milk. Then sandwich it between two crisp tahini and honey cookies, which are also dairy and egg-free. You can easily make this vegan by substituting the maple syrup for the honey. Either way, these ice cream sandwiches are this summer's cool treat!
This no-churn coconut milk ice cream sandwich takes advantage of natural tahini and honey flavors and is a great alternative to traditional ice cream. The mixture can be churned in an ice cream maker if you have one, though we simply poured ours into a square baking dish and let it freeze for a couple of hours. To make nice and neat sandwiches, use the same round cookie or biscuit cutter you used to cut the cookies to cut matching rounds of the frozen ice cream.

*To make this recipe vegan, just replace the honey with maple syrup or agave syrup.
Tahini & Honey "Ice Cream" Sandwich
Yield: 8 Sandwiches
For the Ice Cream:
1 can Full Fat Coconut Milk
1/4 cup Almond Milk
2 tablespoons Honey or Maple Syrup
1 tablespoon Tahini
1 teaspoon Vanilla
For the Cookie Base:
1/4 cup Honey or Maple Syrup
1/4 cup Tahini
1-2 tablespoons Water
1/2 cup Almond Meal
3/4 cup All-Purpose Flour
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
For the Chocolate Dip:
8 oz Vegan Dark Chocolate
1 tablespoon Coconut Oil
Toasted Sesame Seeds
1. Make the ice cream: in a large bowl beat together the coconut cream, almond milk, honey, tahini and vanilla until well combined.
2. Pour into an 8" square baking dish, cover and freeze for several hours until firm. (You can also use an ice cream maker.)
2. For the cookies: preheat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl stir together the honey, tahini and 1 tablespoon of water. Add almond meal.
3. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour and baking soda, add to the tahini mixture and combine to form a stiff dough (you may need to use your hands to mix), adding an extra tablespoon of water if necessary.
4. Roll out on a silicone mat (or a floured surface) to about 1/8” thick. Use a round cutter to cut into circles 2.5-inches in diameter. Chill for 30 minutes before baking for 8-10 minutes, or until lightly golden. (Here's another round cutter set that offers a smooth edge on one side and a fluted edge on the other.)
5. Assemble the ice cream sandwich: cut ice cream into rounds using the same cookie cutter you used for the cookies. Place round of ice cream between two cookies and press to seal together. Quickly continue the process with remaining cookies and ice cream and return sandwiches to the freezer.
6. Make the chocolate dip: melt together chocolate and coconut oil. Dip half of each sandwich cookie in the chocolate mixture and garnish with toasted sesame seeds or cacao nibs. Place on parchment-lined sheet pan to set and store in the freezer until ready to serve.
