I love ice cream any time of the year... and even more if it is in between two delicious cookies! These cuties are gluten-free, dairy free and almost 100% raw. Enjoy them out doors on a sunny day, or in doors out of the heat.

Stir gently with a spoon and pour the mixture in an ice cream maker. If you don’t have ice cream maker, no worries! Place mixture in a plastic container and freeze, stirring it with a spoon every 30 minutes to break down the crystals. You could also place the mixture in an ice cube mold and let it freeze until hard. Then, blend ice cream cubes right before serving.
