Raw Ice Cream Sandwiches

This recipe is from Raw Food Recipes. I had some hemp seeds that need to be used and this recipe was the perfect opportunity. The cookies are chewy and filled with lots of healthy goodness (omega 3's, yes!). I just used plain vanilla ice cream in this recipe, but next time I'll definitely try mint chocolate chip as the recipe calls for. The picture I took isn't so great, as I just had only a moment before work to get a snapshot.

For the cookies:
1 cup hulled hemp seeds
1 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup cashews
1 pinch sea salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons maca powder
2 tbsp almond milk
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1/4 cup maple syrup

Pour the hemp seeds, coconut, and cashews in a food processor and blend until mixed. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend. Line a baking pan with wax paper and form the cookies from a rounded teaspoonful of dough. It helps to work with wet fingers to press the cookies into a flat disc. Place the cookies into the freezer until firm.

For the ice cream:
1 can coconut milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 pinch salt
1/3 cup raw cane sugar

Mix the ingredients together. Cool in the refrigerator for several hours. Then process in an ice cream maker. Let the ice cream solidify in the freezer overnight. Then to make the sandwiches, peel the cookies off the wax paper, place a scoop of ice cream on it and place another cookie on top. Enjoy!
