Ice cream sandwiches are the quintessential summer treat. They include a baked good (always a winner), they’re creamy, they’re sweet, and probably most importantly, they’re cold. But usually they’re full of refined sugar, grains, and dairy, so we all know traditional store-bought (and ice cream truck-bought, and boardwalk-bought) versions are not at all paleo-friendly. So try these paleo ice cream sandwich recipes including dairy free ice creams with fun flavors, and chewy, sturdy cookies, brownies, donuts, and other treats that are perfect for wrapping around a nice big dollop of ice cream.
1. Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches
If you think dairy-free ice cream can’t be amazingly creamy, you have to try this sunflower butter banana ice cream with vanilla extract, maple syrup, and almond milk. Better yet, sandwich it between two of the chewiest, most delicious paleo chocolate chip cookies.
2. Paleo Ice Cream S’mores
Being the s’more enthusiast that I am, I’m pretty thrilled to be sharing this recipe for paleo s’mores in ice cream sandwich form. You’ll need ingredients like pecans, coconut flakes, coconut milk, cashews, arrowroot powder, honey, vanilla, cacao butter, and more.
3. Samoa Donut Ice Cream Sandwiches
Maybe you call them Samoas and maybe you call them Caramel Delites, but either way, they’re that fabulous Girl Scout cookie that you can’t buy anymore now that you’re paleo. No worries, just make these Samoa donuts and sandwich them with dairy-free vanilla ice cream.
4. Grain Free Sunflower Snickerdoodle Ice Cream Sandwiches
I love the gorgeous color contrast between the golden snickerdoodle cookies and pure white vanilla or coconut coconut ice cream. These cookies are made with sunflower seeds, cinnamon, coconut sugar, almond meal, coconut flakes, coconut oil, vanilla, and psyllium.
5. Vanilla Bean Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches
This smooth vanilla bean ice cream has a fabulous flavor, thanks to molasses and pure maple syrup. Gelatin adds extra nutrients while also helping the ice cream keep its structure a little better when sandwiches between healthy “peanut butter” cookies (don’t worry, they’re peanut-free!).
6. Banana Bread Ice Cream Sandwiches
Who says you need cookies to make ice cream sandwiches? This version is made with banana bread and a vanilla-cinnamon ice cream made with full-fat coconut milk and sweetened with honey. I love those flavors with banana bread!

Nope, that’s not typo in the title—there’s no oatmeal in these oatmeal cookies, which are deliciously flavored with the perfect texture. Both the cookies and the banana-coconut ice cream have bananas, along with almond butter, cinnamon, and other delicious flavors.

11. Chocolate Almond Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches
These chewy chocolate almond cookies are made with black almond flour, arrowroot powder, cocoa powder, coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla. This blogger recommends pumpkin ice cream, but any flavor will work if you can’t find it dairy-free!
12. Chocolate and Vanilla Ice Cream Sandwiches
Made with simple, coconut-sugar sweetened chocolate cookies and an easy coconut whipped cream “ice cream” flavored with vanilla, these may be the easiest homemade ice cream sandwiches you’ll ever make. And the ice cream is sweetened with stevia!

15. Almond Butter and Jelly Ice Cream Sandwiches
I replaced the peanut butter in this recipe with almond butter to make it paleo, but you could just as easily use cashew butter, hazelnut butter, or sunflower seed butter to make these delicious strawberry ice cream sandwiches made with just frozen strawberries and coconut cream.
16. Frozen Mint Chocolate Whoopie Pies
With the makings of a perfect whoopie pie, these soft and chewy cookie cakes are made with coconut sugar, flax meal, cocoa powder, coconut flour, arrowroot flour, and a few other delicious ingredients. And this is a chocolate whoopie pie, friends, so don’t forget the chocolate ice cream.

26. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Sandwiches
I can’t get over the thick, chewy cookie dough in this recipe, filled with delicious little mini chocolate chips. This version is sweetened with maple syrup and flavored with vanilla and pastured butter, with homemade vanilla ice cream in between the layers.
27. Fudgy Chocolate and Vanilla Ice Cream Sandwiches
