Skinny Macaroon Ice Cream Sandwiches — These super cute skinny macaroon ice cream sandwiches are less than 100 calories each and take all of five minutes to whip up!
Yes, there are skinny macaroon ice cream sandwiches in heaven. And I have conquered the recipe! No, but seriously…
People always ask me how I survive with so many sugary recipes floating around my house all of the time. The answer to that is simple.
I have really happy neighbors and friends. Plus, I do have some real life guilt-free recipes laying around too.
These little cuties are less than 100 calories each and take all of five minutes to whip up. Plus, there are sprinkles involved. Can I get an amen?
Also, I’m not sorry that these are macaroon sandwiches for cheaters. I really wanted something quick to whip up. So I cheated and purchased my favorite pre-made macarons at Trader Joe’s.
But if you want to make your macarons from scratch, we have an easy macaron recipe of our own!
Ingredients Needed To Make Skinny Macaroon Ice Cream Sandwiches
- Chilled macaroons — The ones we used from Trader Joe’s are only 45 calories each! Or you can make your own homemade macarons.
- Edy’s Slow Churned Vanilla Bean ice cream — 30 calories for 2 tablespoons
- Sprinkles — Not optional!
- Agave or simple syrup — Optional
How To Make Skinny Macaroon Ice Cream Sandwiches
Dump some sprinkles in a bowl of the vanilla ice cream and stir them around.
This doesn’t really serve much purpose other than for cuteness, which is equally important. So just do it!
Next, split open a chilled macaroon (like an Oreo) and put a 1-2 tablespoon scoop of ice cream in the middle.
And place the two ends back together like a sandwich.
Lastly, roll the edges of your sandwich in a bowl of sprinkles to decorate the sides.
To place some sprinkles on top that won’t fall off, dap a tiny drop of agave syrup or simple syrup on the cookie and then place sprinkles on top.
Now enjoy guilt free!
Although I should warn you that you can still get a sugar high after eating an entire photoshoot’s worth of these babies in one sitting. Don’t judge me.
