  • Cookies:
  • 1/2 c. cocoa powder
  • 6 T. coconut sugar sucanat, or brown sugar, divided
  • 1/8 t. sea salt
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/8 t. lemon juice
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • Coconut Whipped Cream:
  • 1 can full-fat coconut milk I used Thai Kitchen, refrigerated for at least 12 hours
  • 2 drops liquid stevia
  • 1/4 t. vanilla


  • For the cookies:
  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
  • Grind 1/4 cup of the sugar into a powder (I used a coffee grinder to do this).
  • Sift the cocoa, the above 1/4 cup of sugar, and salt to remove any lumps.
  • Add the egg whites and lemon juice to a bowl.
  • Beat the egg white mix until 'soft peaks' start to form (about 3 minutes).
  • Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar 1 tablespoon at a time.
  • Beat the mixture until stiff glossy peaks form (about 4-5 minutes).
  • Using a spatula, fold in the cocoa/sugar/salt mix and the vanilla. This will take a few minutes to all come together.
  • Drop large teaspoons of batter onto a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet (I made 14).
  • Bake the cookies for 28 minutes.
  • Cool.
  • For the whipped cream:
  • Open the can of cold coconut milk, and skim off the top layer of thick cream (about the top 1/3 of the can).
  • Place the cream into a bowl, and add the stevia and vanilla.
  • Beat the cream until it thickens (this only took a couple of minutes for me, but I've read that it can take up to 6 minutes, so be patient!).
  • Dollop the whipped cream onto a cooled cookie and top it with another cookies, making a sandwich.
  • Repeat this process to make 7 sandwiches.
  • Place the ice cream sandwiches into the freezer for 5-15 minutes. Going beyond this amount of time will cause the 'ice cream' to harden, and it will not taste as good.
  • Enjoy!


The nutrition facts are based on using coconut sugar, 6 ounces of coconut cream (I overestimated here to be cautious. My entire coconut milk can is 13.66 ounces.). Weight Watchers points (new system): 3! :-)
