Raw Coconut Ice Cream Sammy's!

Raw Coconut Ice Cream Sandwiches

Last night, I made the most delicious raw dessert recipe ever!! These are truly incredible and you will *not believe* that they are raw and healthy!

Raw Blackberry Swirl Ice Cream Recipe: 
2 cups raw cashews, soaked
juice from 1 lemon
1/2 cup coconut oil
2 tsp real vanilla
1/2 cup raw agave 

Blend all ingredients until a smooth, creamy texture is reached. Remove half from blender. Add 1 cup fresh blackberries to the remaining mixture and blend. Once creamy, remove and put in a bowl. I swirl the two flavors together and put them in my freezer for a couple of hours. 

Recipe for Raw Coconut Cookies 
2 cups Raw, unsweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cup Tahini 
1/2 cup raw agave
1/2 cup coconut oil (liquid)
1 tsp. real vanilla
1/2 teaspoon pink or sea salt

These cookies are insanely good!! Tiff loved them SO much! Ivy usually dislikes coconut, but she loved these...

Mix all ingredients together and spoon them into cookie sheet covered in wax paper. For the cookies that I planned on using for these, I flattened them out with a spoon. They are much wetter than a traditional drop cookie, so you have to shape them a bit to make a circle. Freeze for 30-60 minutes.

To assemble the ice cream sandwich:
Remove two flat cookies from freezer. Place raw ice cream in the middle!! Enjoy having your mind blown over how good these are!! I rolled mine in raw cacao nibs.
