These delicious paleo brownie ice cream sandwiches are all you need to cool off this summer!  With creamy mint chocolate chip ice cream positioned in between two thin pieces of extra fudgy brownie squares, what more could you ask for?  Best of all, they are super easy to make right at home!


Ingredients

Scale

For the brownies

For the Ice Cream


Instructions

  1. Make the ice cream by placing the coconut milks and coconut sugar in a pot over medium-low heat on the stove.  Stir until the sugar has dissolved and no coconut milk clumps remain; let cool.  Stir in the vanilla extract and mint extract
  2. Transfer the ice cream mixture to an ice cream machine (see notes for no-churn version) and churn in accordance with manufacturer instructions.  Once the ice cream is almost done, add the chocolate chunks and stir to incorporate.  Pour the ice cream into a container and place in freezer for at least an hour to harden
  3. Prepare the brownies in accordance with the instructions listed in my Dark Chocolate Paleo Brownie recipe, however, use a 9 x 13 inch baking pan to get thinner brownies.  Bake for 17 - 20 minutes until the edges are crispy (we are looking for slightly underdone in the middle so that they will remain nice and fudgy once chilled); let cool them place in freezer for at least 30 minutes to firm up
  4. To assemble, slice the hardened brownie sheet in half, leaving two 9 x 6.5 inch brownie sections.  Turn one of the brownie sections over and scoop ice cream on top.  With a flat edged knife, spread the ice cream into a large ice cream block covering the entirety of the brownie.  Place the other brownie section on top of the ice cream then place in freezer for another hour to solidify (this makes cutting them much easier
  5. Slice the brownies into 8 small rectangles.  To do this, cut the brownies in half down the long-edge side.  Rotate the brownies and make another cut down the middle of the short-edge then cut those halves in half again leaving 8 rectangular sandwiches.  Enjoy immediately or store in an airtight container lined with parchment paper in the freezer for up to 2 weeks

Notes

No-Churn Directions

  1. If making no-churn ice cream, prepare the ice cream in accordance with step 1 above.  In stead of step 2, transfer the mixture to a container, stir in the chocolate chunks, and place in freezer overnight to freeze
  2. Once at a "soft frozen" state, you may want to stir a couple times to disperse the chocolate chunks as they may have settled at the bottom.  Place in freezer again to become firm
  3. Once firm, pick up with step 3 in the above directions
