Who can resist an ice cream sandwich? What if I told you that you could eat an ice cream sandwich everyday and feel good about it? I don’t lie! With my zucchini “ice cream” yogurt sandwiches you are getting a dose of veggies, calcium and the perfect balance of sweetnes with a hint of brown sugar and cinnamon. What more could you ask for? A lot more huh? Well, the best I can do today are these sandwiches- take it or leave it! LOL! You may be wondering why I call these “ice cream” yogurt sandwiches? Word play my friends! Ice Cream is Yogurt- or haven’t your heard:) I have a 3 yr old- Nuh Said!
I got the idea because my son (like his momma) thoroughly enjoyed his cookies and cream ice cream sandwich we had as a treat one extremely HOT day last week. Although very very yummy it wasn’t the healthiest choice I could have chosen. So I decided to make my own version of an ice cream sandwich but replace the ice cream with sweet yogurt and the “cookies” with miniature zucchini cakes sliced really thin. It was perfect! My favorite part about an ice cream sandwich is those first few bites. The ones where the cookie part is so firm and cold and the ice cream is so icy that you get a little crunch factor by biting into it. That is exactly what I tried to mirror with my zucchini yogurt cakes and indeed I succeeded.
GO crazy! Use carrots instead of zucchini, cocoa along with the flour or even chocolate chips in the mix. The miniature cakes lend themselves perfectly to a variety of yogurt flavors like strawberry, pineapple, blueberry, even chocolate. The possibilities are endless.I stored the leftovers in ziploc bags and we have been eating a zucchini “ice cream” yogurt sandwich every morning and afternoon for the past week! Summer- I LOVE IT!
