Raspberry Ice Cream Sandwiches

July 23, 2019

It’s hot! Too hot! I’m a winter girl at heart so walking out of work to 35 degree heat is not my comfort zone. I do however love ice cream and I love any excuse to have it for my dinner. The perks of being an adult right?

You might have caught my Instagram story this evening and seen my big bowl of banana split. It’s my fave and a treat if you’re having it for dinner! I made it a bit less calorific by swapping out normal ice cream for Judes low calorie ice cream and by switching the sauces for low calorie ones. You can pick these up on the internet, there’s so much choice out there! But sometimes its not appropriate to have ice cream for dinner, so coming a close second are these Raspberry Ice Cream Sandwiches, which make a great pudding on a hot summer day!
