Skinny Strawberry Waffle Ice Cream Sandwiches ~SRC~



One of the fun parts of being in the Secret Recipe Club is that you get to see what another blogger created with one of your recipes. I get so excited and flattered every time I see the other bloggers creation.

From time to time in the Secret Recipe Club we have some "Orphans" blogs who for whatever reason did not have another blogger do a post of one of their recipes. It happens... we all have lives outside of this "blog" world. But if you are one of the "orphans"... it's a major bummer!

This month one of my twitter/instagram buddies Nicole was an Orphan, so I jumped on it to make one of her recipes that way she could be "unorphaned"!

I am a fairly new follower of Nicole and her blog I am Honey Bee. I started following her on Twitter because she is kinda local... sorta. She is in the Boston area about 1.5 hrs from where I live... I also love her because I can thank her for this recent shoe purchase that I really did NOT need!

When I saw this recipe on her blog last night I was like "why didn't I ever think of that!" Waffles and ice cream is pretty genius way to make an ice cream sandwich. In her post she talks about a penny candy store she used to walk to as a kid. Which reminded me of the one I used to walk to as a little girl. We had Baily's in Ashland that was the BEST, I used to save my change and go every Friday to buy embroidery thread for friendship bracelets and enough pixie sticks and candy cigarettes to rot my teeth.

Do they even sell candy cigarettes anymore? I sure hope not.. what an awful thing to sell to young kids. That and those gum cigars, or that shredded bubble gum that looked like chewing tobacco... I loved all that stuff, and thought I was cool... gross.


When I set off to make these waffle ice cream sandwiches this morning I wished I had some maple ice cream because how awesome would that have been... maybe with some candied bacon? Yeah. I know. Enough with the bacon...

I made my boys a batch of Whole Wheat Strawberry Waffles for breakfast... the left overs were turned into this batch of "Skinny" Waffle Ice Cream Sandwiches! (This recipe  is easily adaptable to your likes.)



"Skinny" Strawberry Waffle Ice Cream Sandwiches

 Ingredients:

1 batch Whole Wheat Waffles (recipe follows)
1 pint of Dreyer's/Edy's chocolate fro-yo (or chocolate ice cream)

For the Waffles:

3 Eggs separated
1 2/3 cup skim milk
2 cups white whole wheat flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tbs sugar
1/4 cup light olive oil
1 cup diced strawberries

Directions:
In your electric mixer beet egg whites until they are stiff. Set aside.

In a medium bowl mix egg yolks, milk together.  Mix in flour, baking powder, sugar and oil.  Gently fold in berries  and egg whites.

In a hot waffle iron, make according to iron directions. (every waffle iron holds a different amount of batter and heats differently)

Cool waffles completely. Scoop chocolate frozen yogurt in the center of one waffle and top with a second creating a sandwich. Return to freezer for 2 hours.

Then enjoy!

  9. Oh man I am obsessed with this recipe! I also may blame both you and Nicole if I end up with those shoes too... they're named after my sister, so I think that means that I have to buy them, right?!

  12. Mmmm .. these are stunning. I've been trying to work my blog up to 100 recipes, so I can join the secret recipe club :D ... maybe by the end of the year I'll be all set.

    Quick question - how did you make the edges of your ice cream so perfect? Is there a trick to getting them to be uniform to the waffles?

    Great post :)

    1. Took me a long time to hit the 100!! To make the edges smooth I let my ice cream soften a bit so it's spreadable just use a butter knife to spread!
