There are few better warm-weather snacks than a drippy ice cream sandwich. For a healthier spin on the classic treat, try banana-strawberry ice cream (made with fresh fruit!) smushed between two crispy graham crackers.

A Healthier Ice Cream Sandwich

Recipe by: Caitlin Covington
Makes: 4 ice cream sandwiches
​Ready in: 20 minutes


1 banana, frozen
1 cup strawberries, frozen
4 graham cracker sheets, broken into 8 pieces
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips (optional)
1/4 cup pecan pieces (optional)


1. Thaw banana and strawberries for 10 minutes.

2. In a blender or food processor, blend fruit until smooth but still firm. (If it’s too liquidy, stick blended mixture in freezer for 15 to 20 minutes until it scoops like ice cream.)

3. Spread mixture onto graham crackers and place another cracker on top to create a sandwich.

4. Roll sandwiches in dark chocolate chips and pecan pieces, if desired.
