Raw Ice Cream Sandwiches: Two Ways

What you need: 

Ice Cream:
2 cups almond milk (1 cup almonds to 1 1/2 cups water)
1/2 cup hemp seeds
6 soaked medjool dates
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
pinch salt Oreo (Chocolate) Cookie:
1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut, ground fine
1/4 cup raw cacao powder
1/4 cup agave/or other syrup sweetener
2 teaspoons mesquite powder
pinch salt
1 tablespoon coconut oil Chocolate Chip Cookie:
3/4 cup almond flour
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut, ground fine
1/4 cup agave/or other syrup sweetener
1 tablespoon mesquite powder
pinch salt
2 tablespoons cacao nibs

What you do: 

1. Combine almond milk, hemp seeds and dates in a blender. Blend until uniformly smooth. Drain mixture through a sieve to strain out any date/hemp clumps. Return mixture to blender, and add add coconut oil, vanilla and salt. Blend until combined. Make ice cream according to ice cream maker instructions.
2. Assemble ingredients for chocolate/oreo cookies (except coconut oil) in a medium bowl. Roll with a rolling pin until 1/4" thick. Cut four 4" circles out of it, put on dehydrator tray and dehydrate at 115 degrees F for 6 hours or until firm-ish.
3. With the leftover dough, add 1 tablespoon coconut oil, knead together, and form into flat shapes. Put shapes in freezer until firm (a few minutes). Spoon half of the ice cream into a bowl, chop the freezer dough into pieces and crumble into ice cream. Stir until combined.
4. Assemble ingredients for chocolate chip cookies in a medium bowl (except cacao nibs). Roll with a rolling pin until 1/4" thick. Cut six 4" circles out of it, put on dehydrator tray and dehydrate at 115 degrees F for 6 hours or until firm-ish.
5. You may have leftover dough, so if that is the case you could possibly get away with making a few extra (7-8). Spoon the other half of the ice cream into a bowl; add cacao nibs. Stir until combined. Once cookies are dehydrated, spoon appropriate ice cream mixture onto cookie (the ice cream should be really smooth and malleable, perfect just out of the ice cream maker) top with another cookie, smooth sides with a knife. Freeze until firm.

Source of recipe: These were the result of me having nothing to do on a sunday day. I was making almond milk this morning and was like, hey if I make it really thick I wonder if I could make raw ice cream out of it? Well you can! But, if you like your ice cream really creamy I would definately recommend the coconut or soaked cashew route. Otherwise almond milk and hemp seeds work pretty well, it just makes a less dense, lighter ice cream. The "Oreo" cookies actually taste like oreos it blew my mind! I'm definitely making those cookies just for everyday munching. Anyway I'm pretty sure this post speaks for itself, raw. ice cream. sandwiches. Enjoy!

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I'm a vegan (not a raw vegan), so, if I were to bake the cookies, would it still work the same do you think?
