Beat The Heat With Low-Carb Chocolate Chip-Macadamia Nut Ice Cream Sandwiches

Filed under: Low-carb Recipes — @ August 7, 2007

Cool off during the dog days of summer with this yummy low-carb treat!

Who among us doesn’t remember the days when we’d take two cookies and smash our favorite flavor of ice cream in the middle to eat when the temperatures outside were blistering like they are right now? Yep, we sure did and it was a great way to cool off. Unfortunately, it wasn’t so good on the waistline.

Nowadays, we’re eating better than we used to because we’re livin’ la vida low-carb (RIGHT?!) and we’re shunning the sugar in our diet, too (RIGHT?!). Because of that, I’m happy to share an absolutely amazing low-carb chocolate chip-macadamia nut ice cream sandwiches recipe compliments of our friends at Low-Carb Connoisseur.

The cookies are from Big Train and I LOVE LOVE LOVE these. They taste just like toll house cookies and you’ll NEVER believe they are low-carb. I was quite impressed. And the macadamia nut ice cream is the icing on the proverbial cake, so to speak. You won’t want to go overboard with these, but they can be a nice oasis to beat the heat of that last blast of this summer scorcher! ENJOY! :)
