Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

Recipe posted in: Snack

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could enjoy a decadent and delicious dessert on your low carb diet? You asked and we answered with these keto friendly Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches! Filled with nutritious, wholesome ingredients, you can “indulge” in one of these treats for just 269 calories and zero grams of net carbs.

Using the tasty recipe for low carb Chocolate Chip Cookies from The New Keto-Friendly South Beach Diet book, we created these special Ice Cream Sandwiches that won’t make a dent in your net carbs. We fill them with a creamy, three-ingredient, whipped ice cream center that will compete with your favorite store-bought tub.

If you’re a chocolate lover, feel free to swap in our recipe for Chocolate Brownie Cookies as the “bread” in this sandwich. Their dense, cake-like texture will pair perfectly with the sweet, creamy ice cream. You could also add a small amount of cacao or unsweetened cocoa powder to the filling to create a chocolate ice cream. One tablespoon of cocoa powder counts as one Extra on the South Beach Diet program.

Log your healthy dessert in the South Beach Diet Tracker app to help you stay on track with your diet plan! It’s the perfect tool for staying accountable with your keto friendly weight loss program.

Note: After removing your ice cream sandwiches from the freezer, they may be frozen solid. We recommend keeping them at room temperature for 15 minutes to allow the ice cream to soften slightly in the center.
