Ice Cream Sandwich

Watch out cookies, there’s a new ice cream sandwich in town! We think these sammies can even count as breakfast, since they include waffles made with plant-based protein powder, and the “ice cream” is made just with bananas.

If we’re in a more decadent mood, we’ll add So Delicious® dairy-free ice cream to the sandwich instead of banana “ice cream” and make it official treat.


  • Waffles:
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground flax
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 1/2 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup Chocolate Vega Sport® Performance Protein
  • or 1/2 cup Chocolate Vega® Clean Protein
  • 3 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup cane sugar or coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • A pinch sea salt
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup vegetable or grape seed oil
  • 1 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (or other non-dairy milks)
  • Ice Cream:
  • 4 bananas, cut into pieces and frozen
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract, optional


  1. Waffles:

  2. Heat waffle iron.
