Special Ingredients + Tested Substitutions
For the homemade dairy free vanilla ice cream:
- Full Fat Coconut Milk + Coconut Cream: It is very important when making homemade dairy free ice cream to use full fat coconut milk and coconut cream from a can. The extra fat content is what helps make the ice cream creamier. Do not attempt to use boxed or bottled coconut milk as it will NOT work for this recipe.
- Vanilla Bean Paste: It is preferable to use vanilla bean paste for a bold vanilla flavor, however if you only have vanilla extract available, that will work just fine.
- Gelatin: If you are following a vegan diet, you can substitute agar agar for the gelatin in the ice cream. Alternatively, you may omit altogether, but I find that using gelatin/agar agar helps the dairy free ice cream maintain creaminess.
- Monk Fruit Sweetener:I use monk fruit in all of my low FODMAP dessert recipes in place of refined white sugar. If you prefer + tolerate, you may swap this for white sugar.
For the gluten free chocolate chip cookies:
Low FODMAP Tip: If you are following low FODMAP for SIBO, you are likely avoiding refined sugars. Stock your pantry with unrefined sugars like granulated monk fruit, coconut sugar, and powdered monk fruit sugar. These are the perfect 1 to 1 substitutes for white sugar, brown sugar, and powdered sugar. Its important to note personal tolerances when choosing ingredients.
How To Make A Gluten
Ive made these sandwiches with a ice cream sandwich maker and without, and I think its just a bit easier with the ice cream sandwich maker. The ice cream sandwich maker I used for this post is the Norpro Ice Cream Sandwich Maker. You dont have to use an ice cream sandwich maker. You can use a rectangle cookie cutter or a large round cookie cutter, and make the sandwiches yourself. I prepared them like that before I started using the sandwich maker.
Bake up the Chocolate Wafers recipe on pages 279 280 of my cookbook, Celestes Best Gluten-Free, Allergen-Free Recipes or any cookie recipe. I find the thinner you can roll out the cookie dough, the better. I roll mine out to 1/8-inch thick. Cut the cookies into the desired shape for the sandwiches. Let the cookies completely cool.

The rectangle cookies on the bottom rack will be used for the ice cream sandwiches.
Prepare the ice cream. For the sandwiches pictured on this blog, I used the Vanilla Ice Cream recipe found on page 347 of my cookbook.
Homemade Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Ice Cream
But you can use any flavor ice cream in my cookbook or in my new eBook Celestes Best Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Ice Cream and Frozen Desserts .
Step 3 Prepare Workspace
Cut a small sheet of parchment paper, a 7-inch square, to place your sandwich on which will help prevent it from sticking.

Raw Vegan Ice Cream Sandwiches
A healthy homemade recipe for the classic frozen dessert! Raw Vegan Ice Cream Sandwiches that are also gluten-free, top 8 allergy-free, and paleo! A simple chewy tigernut flour and sunflower butter chocolate chip cookie dough, sandwiching banana nice cream!
Who here loves a good ice cream sandwich? I know I’m raising my hand! Far, far too long since I’d had one too. Summer could not be over before I made some ice cream sandwiches. We did sundaes, fudgsicles, and popsicles this year I was not about to neglect the ultimate “sandwich”. Now it depends on who you ask, but when “ice cream sandwich” comes to mind you either think of a chocolate chip cookie with ice cream or, my humble childhood favorite, the soft brownie wafer/bar and fake vanilla ice cream .
Nothing will ever beat those…the best. I can still remember unwrapping those ice cream sandwiches, delicately pealing off the paper and revealing the somewhat gooey ice cream that was exposed on the sides to the paper . I can even still remember the fake soft chocolate bar and fake vanilla ice cream taste…one in a million. That, my friends, was a quality childhood delicacy!

New Perfectly Free Pints
I love perfectly free frozen bites. The creamy coconut ice cream center and the delicious outsides are amazing. I was so excited when they came out with pints. They come in three flavors- fudge stripe, caramel cafe, and strawberry sundae. All are delicious, but for this gluten free ice cream sandwich, I chose to use the fudge swirl and caramel cafe. The fudge swirl is a bit more of a coconut ice cream flavor, whereas the caramel cafe has this delicious coffee taste with that caramel swirl.
A few things that I love about Perfectly Free:
- Top 8 allergen free
- Taste Ridiculously Good!

Food allergy awareness week is over but I wanted to share some more thoughts and feelings regarding food allergies in general. I usually only post things that are positive and encouraging. But lets be honest. Food allergies can be downright depressing and very upsetting. Another great word is UNFAIR. Certain times it becomes overbearing and I cant help but cry and feel sorry for my sons.
This whole food allergies week has been a double edged sword.
Yes, its wonderful to hear all the other stories of families managing food allergies. Yes, its great to read some success stories and learn some great tips. Yes, it gets people talking about food allergies and hopefully educates more awareness.
Some the stories are down right sad and infuriating all at the same time. The stories that upset me are about family members that do not understand/accommodate/care about childs known allergy. Family in my opinion, should be the first and most supportive of any special diet requests. And by requests, I dont mean personally expecting others to cook safe food, but merely not serving the anaphylactic foods that the child is allergic too.
We only want the best for our children. When something as basic as eating become complicated, life has overwhelming moments. If you ever feel like this, youre totally normal.

How To Make These Gluten
These desserts come together very easily, but time is of the essence when you’re working with ice cream.
The first step is to bring out your Belgian waffle iron to pre-heat. This one here is very similar to the one that I use. While that’s happening, you can prepare the entire box of waffle mix in a large bowl. Mix with the prescribed additional ingredients for your particular box mix.
Just before cooking, take your ice cream pints out of the freezer to begin to soften. You’ll want to give them 20-30 minutes so they will be soft, but not liquid. Keep an eye on them, as different non-dairy ice creams may have different melting times.
Once ready, cook 4 full Belgian waffles, being sure to spray your iron each time for easy removal. When finished, place all waffles on a sheet pan.
Put the sheet pan of waffles into the freezer for 10-15 minutes so they can cool and slightly freeze.
Once your ice cream is soft, take the waffles out of the freezer. Spread each pint of ice cream on one waffle, then top with the 2 remaining waffles. You will have 2 large waffle sandwiches.
Leave the large waffle ice cream sandwiches on the sheet pan and place in the freezer for at least 3 hours.
Once you’re ready to serve, cut each waffle sandwich into quarters along the pre-made lines of the Belgian waffle iron. You may have to let them soften up for a minute or run your knife under warm water and dry before cutting. You will end up with 8 perfectly sized sandwiches.

Enjoy it, Mom. Dont eat it so fast.
Those were the wise words of my 4 year old as I wolfed down my ice cream sandwich a special treat we made for my birthday last weekend. To hear her echo those words of mine put a huge smile on my face, because even though our diets are limited by my celiac disease and her food allergies, I have tried to instill in her an appreciation for food, to taste it and enjoy it. But I mainly smiled because it was just so darn cute!
Anyway, enough of the chatter you say! Get to the sandwich! Okay, okay
But first, for those of you who dont know Babycakes Bakery in NYC, it is a very hip, mostly-gluten-free, vegan bakery with delectable treats that even non-gluten-free and non-vegan people love. Erin McKenna, the founder of Babycakes, recently came out with a cookbook and appeared on Martha Stewart and shared her recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwiches with Vanilla Frosting.
I had been wanting to try this recipe, and finally decided to make it on my birthday but the thought of baking when it was 95 degrees outside wasnt too appealing unless it ended up being an ice cream sandwich! So we skipped the frosting and opened the freezer instead.
And remember: Enjoy it. Dont eat it so fast!

Coolhaus Awesome Dessert Dairy Free Frozen Dessert Sandwich
Thoughts: So these are different than the others in that they are not a traditional soft chocolate cake-like cookie with vanilla ice cream sandwiched in between. These are two actual cookies with ice cream sandwiched in between. The ice cream is a thick layer and they are delicious.
We tried the Dairy Free Tahitian Vanilla Frozen Dessert Sandwich and the Dairy Free Cookie Dough Lyfe Frozen Dessert Sandwich. We liked both but found that the cookie dough one was more favorable to both of us.
Other flavors include:
- Cookies and Cream

Ingredients In Gluten Free Ice Cream Sandwiches
Gluten Free Flour Blend – I used Bobâs Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten-Free Baking Flour.
Unsweetened cocoa powder – We love Dutch processed cocoa, but you can use your favorite cocoa.
Salt – If you use a salted butter you can leave this out.
Baking powder – Helps with the rise and texture of the outer gluten free ice cream sandwiches layer.
Unsalted butter – You can use dairy-free butter but make sure you omit the salt.Brown sugar – For a touch of sweetness and flavor.
Granulated sugar – To add additional sweetness and moisture.
Egg – I don’t have a egg-free option at the moment.
Vanilla extract – For flavor and to add depth.
Vanilla ice cream – You can use dairy-free ice cream or your favorite ice cream flavor. This no churn vanilla ice cream recipe is super simple to make.

For The Vegan Cookies
- Coconut oil: replaces the butter in this gluten free cookie recipe. You want the texture to be soft, like butter and NOT melted. It gives the vegan cookies a subtle hint of coconut flavor but if youre not a fan of coconut at all, be sure to use refined coconut oil which has a neutral scent and flavor. If you prefer not to use coconut oil at all, you can try vegan butter, but I have not tested it out with that so cant ensure the results.
- Vanilla extract: makes the cookies delicious and brings out the flavors from all the other ingredients.
- Pure maple syrup: a natural liquid sweetener that is vegan-friendly and adds a subtle sweetness. If you dont have it, you can try agave syrup, coconut nectar syrup, brown rice syrup or Lakanto Sugar-Free syrup.
- Coconut Sugar: a lower glycemic sweetener that is similar to the taste of brown sugar. If you dont have it, feel free to use regular brown sugar or golden monk fruit sweetener for a low carb no sugar sweetener.
