Ice cream sandwiches are a classic summer treat. I used to enjoy them as a child and I would love nothing more than for my little one to enjoy them too. Unfortunately, your typical ice cream sandwiches are made with real vanilla ice cream, ruling them out for us. I have found a few dairy-free options at the grocery store, usually made with coconut milk ice cream. This is fine, but sometimes you just crave that "real" vanilla ice cream flavor. The other issue for us is that most of those also contain gluten. Not that I have to be able to enjoy them with the kids necessarily, but I don't mind the occasional treat as well!
We recently had the opportunity to try the new Cashew Milk Frozen Desserts from our wonderful friends at So Delicious Dairy Free. The Creamy Cashew flavor is SO close to that of a homemade vanilla ice cream and super scrumptious. I just knew I wanted to make our own ice cream sandwiches from the moment I first tasted it.
