Say what?!? Healthy chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream? Yep! After lots of people telling me that they love my Healthy Cookie Dough Dip, I knew that I had to do more with this flavor combination. This time, I am throwing it into a healthy Greek yogurt based ice cream. I personally love chocolate chip cookies dough ice cream and love making my own homemade healthier ice creams and this one is perfect!

The chocolate chip cookie dough that I used in this recipe only has 5 ingredients, is nutritious and is made in your food processor in just a few minutes. It is chickpea based which I was a little scared to post the first time out of fear that people would think that I was totally crazy but I got great feedback from people letting me know that they loved it.

This time, I used cashew butter instead of peanut butter for a lighter flavor but it is up to you which nut butter you use. I used a base of vanilla Greek yogurt but feel free to use plain Greek yogurt if you prefer with a little sweetener. 

This ice cream is creamy, delicious and protein rich. It is perfect for summer. It is healthy enough to eat as a snack, dessert or even part of a meal. I could totally see myself having this for breakfast on a hot summer day!

This Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream is perfect with a small sandwich such as the Sandwich Bros. of Wisconsin Flatbread Pocket Sandwiches which come in a few snack varieties including the Angus Cheeseburgers, Chicken Melts and Gyro Sliders. It pairs well with the Egg White and Turkey Sausage variety for breakfast or with the any of the other ones for a hearty snack. Perfect for a post-workout meal!

The lunch varieties were great on my maternity leave because I was always short on time during the lunch hour because that was often my time to do blog work and wanted to get something in my stomach quickly. Some other recipes that pair well with these sandwiches are my Panzanella SaladTropical Overnight Oats and Greek Chopped Salad with Roasted Chickpeas, Strawberry Rhubarb Oatmeal and Rainbow Roasted Vegetables.
