5 Savory Ice-Cream Sandwiches Every Dessert Lover Can’t Miss

Ice-Cream Sandwiches are a perfect summer dessert – they usually require no cooking time and cool you down when you most need it. But don’t think that these delicious sweets are all about putting ready-made ingredients together. With a bit of creativity and effort, you can also make these from scratch. If you are a true dessert lover, we’re sure you will appreciate these five savory ice cream sandwiches we picked out to make your summer days complete.

1. Chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwiches

    These are pretty simple to make, and we’re sure your kids will love them too. It’s best to eat them with freshly made chewy cookies, but store bought is OK as well. To make these, take two home-made or store-bought chocolate-chip cookies and sandwich some vanilla ice cream between them. This recipe is so simple; even your kids can make these. You can also decorate them with additional chocolate chips for better-looking sandwiches.

    There is more to eating ice cream than just satisfying your senses. According to Holly McCord, a registered dietitian, and author of The Ice Cream Diet, ice cream helps in weight loss. This is because dairy products in restricted diets can promote weight loss according to one meta-analysis published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

      If you want to show off your culinary skills, then making ice cream sandwiches from scratch is bound to impress your guests. This melt-in-your-mouth dessert is what ice cream sandwiches are all bout – soft cocoa flavored dough with homemade vanilla ice cream. We’re sure this all-time classic is something everyone will appreciate.

      For this recipe, you’ll, unfortunately, need to turn on the oven, but luckily, the cookies only take a maximum of 15 minutes to bake. Make the biscuits by mixing all purpose flour, cocoa powder, and granulated white sugar, a pinch of salt, some vanilla extract and egg yolks. For the vanilla ice cream, you’ll need heavy cream, whole milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla extract, and a bit of salt. The preparation of ice cream is a bit more complicated, but given the rich texture of homemade vanilla ice cream, it is sure worth the effort.

        You don’t need to go camping to make these delicious treats. The combination of soft marshmallow with vanilla ice cream and crisp graham crackers give these treats a bit of nostalgia for the good old days. For these messy treats, all you need is mini marshmallows, some graham crackers, roughly chopped milk chocolate, and, of course, vanilla ice cream.

        The preparation method includes slightly melting the marshmallows in an oven, mixing the wet ingredients in a bowl and spreading them over lined graham crackers. It is best to freeze them overnight and cut into individual serving sizes later on. Ice cream is a great indulgence unless your lactose intolerant according to Glozine Health News.

          To make them, you just need to scoop the coconut ice cream between two Samoas cookies and drizzle a bit of the caramel sauce over the sandwiches – as simple as that. You can also freeze these caramelly-sweet sandwiches for later serving.

            This no-bake-cake is perfect for those hot summer days when you want and need something sweet but without all that extra heat from the oven. It’s also fairly easy to make – perfect as a family activity. For this sandwich cake, you’ll need one box of store-bought ice cream sandwiches, a tub of whipping cream, and some magic shell chocolate.

            Start by stacking the sandwiches in four layers with the sandwiches stacked in opposite directions. Use the magic shell chocolate between each layer to help the sandwiches hold together. Spread the whipping cream over the cake and lastly, drizzle the remaining magic shell chocolate over the finished icing. You can also add Oreo crumbles as an additional cake topping. You should place the cake in the freezer 20 minutes before serving.

            Summer time and ice cream sandwiches go hand in hand. But when you make these delicious desserts by yourself, you can say that your summer is complete. Try these 5 easy homemade ice cream sandwiches this summer, but watch your daily calorie intake. One serving of vanilla ice cream is 137 calories most of which comes from carbohydrates. On the plus side, ice cream will give you and your kids plenty of calcium for good bone health.

            How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

            How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

            Have you gotten into a rut before? Or are you in a rut right now?

            You know you’re in a rut when you run out of ideas and inspiration. I personally see a rut as a productivity vacuum. It might very well be a reason why you aren’t getting results. Even as you spend more time on your work, you can’t seem to get anything constructive done. While I’m normally productive, I get into occasional ruts (especially when I’ve been working back-to-back without rest). During those times, I can spend an entire day in front of the computer and get nothing done. It can be quite frustrating.

            Over time, I have tried and found several methods that are helpful to pull me out of a rut. If you experience ruts too, whether as a working professional, a writer, a blogger, a student or other work, you will find these useful. Here are 12 of my personal tips to get out of ruts:

            1. Work on the small tasks.

            When you are in a rut, tackle it by starting small. Clear away your smaller tasks which have been piling up. Reply to your emails, organize your documents, declutter your work space, and reply to private messages.

            Whenever I finish doing that, I generate a positive momentum which I bring forward to my work.

            2. Take a break from your work desk.

            Get yourself away from your desk and go take a walk. Go to the washroom, walk around the office, go out and get a snack.

            Your mind is too bogged down and needs some airing. Sometimes I get new ideas right after I walk away from my computer.

            3. Upgrade yourself

            Take the down time to upgrade yourself. Go to a seminar. Read up on new materials (#7). Pick up a new language. Or any of the 42 ways here to improve yourself.

            The modern computer uses different typefaces because Steve Jobs dropped in on a calligraphy class back in college. How’s that for inspiration?

            4. Talk to a friend.

            Talk to someone and get your mind off work for a while.

            Talk about anything, from casual chatting to a deep conversation about something you really care about. You will be surprised at how the short encounter can be rejuvenating in its own way.

            5. Forget about trying to be perfect.

            If you are in a rut, the last thing you want to do is step on your own toes with perfectionist tendencies.

            Just start small. Do what you can, at your own pace. Let yourself make mistakes.

            Soon, a little trickle of inspiration will come. And then it’ll build up with more trickles. Before you know it, you have a whole stream of ideas.

            6. Paint a vision to work towards.

            If you are continuously getting in a rut with your work, maybe there’s no vision inspiring you to move forward.

            Think about why you are doing this, and what you are doing it for. What is the end vision in mind?

            Make it as vivid as possible. Make sure it’s a vision that inspires you and use that to trigger you to action.

            7. Read a book (or blog).

            The things we read are like food to our brain. If you are out of ideas, it’s time to feed your brain with great materials.

            Here’s a list of 40 books you can start off with. Stock your browser with only the feeds of high quality blogs, such as Lifehack.org, DumbLittleMan, Seth Godin’s Blog, Tim Ferris’ Blog, Zen Habits or The Personal Excellence Blog.

            Check out the best selling books; those are generally packed with great wisdom.

            8. Have a quick nap.

            If you are at home, take a quick nap for about 20-30 minutes. This clears up your mind and gives you a quick boost. Nothing quite like starting off on a fresh start after catching up on sleep.

            9. Remember why you are doing this.

            Sometimes we lose sight of why we do what we do, and after a while we become jaded. A quick refresher on why you even started on this project will help.

            What were you thinking when you thought of doing this? Retrace your thoughts back to that moment. Recall why you are doing this. Then reconnect with your muse.

            10. Find some competition.

            Nothing quite like healthy competition to spur us forward. If you are out of ideas, then check up on what people are doing in your space.

            Colleagues at work, competitors in the industry, competitors’ products and websites, networking conventions.. you get the drill.

            11. Go exercise.

            Since you are not making headway at work, might as well spend the time shaping yourself up.

            Sometimes we work so much that we neglect our health and fitness. Go jog, swim, cycle, whichever exercise you prefer.

            As you improve your physical health, your mental health will improve, too. The different facets of ourselves are all interlinked.

            Here’re 15 Tips to Restart the Exercise Habit (and How to Keep It).

            12. Take a good break.

            Ruts are usually signs that you have been working too long and too hard. It’s time to get a break.

            Beyond the quick tips above, arrange for a 1-day or 2-days of break from your work. Don’t check your (work) emails or do anything work-related. Relax and do your favorite activities. You will return to your work recharged and ready to start.

            Contrary to popular belief, the world will not end from taking a break from your work. In fact, you will be much more ready to make an impact after proper rest. My best ideas and inspiration always hit me whenever I’m away from my work.
