Matcha Ice Cream Cookies

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

I know I have done an ice cream recipe before but this one is new and improved + involves less calories and more fat burning ingredients 😉

Yep, you read right. Fat burning cookies. Why? How? It’s all in the sachet of Coffee Not Coffee that I added to the cookie mixture. CNC’s new range includes an organic cacao blend which is packed full of superfood ingredients, like cinnamon, goji berry, green tea and mangosteen extracts. These sachets are seriously delicious on their own (sometimes I add a shot of coffee at work) but they were perfecto for this recipe too!

And the less calories part? That comes from the ice cream, the Fro Pro Ice Cream. You probably know by now that I am quite obsessed with it and well, it’s for good reason. Low fat, high protein, sugar free, all natural ingredients & gluten free. The Green Tea (Matcha) and Mint Ice Cream is the newest of flavours and has only 71 cals per serve (a serving size is 100g or 200ml).

I know you all want the recipe and I’m excited to share that it’s completely sugar, wheat and dairy free.

Assembling the Ice Cream Cookies

  • To assemble, simply spoon ice cream between the cookies and if you want to, decorate with cacao nibs and coconut (or a healthy chocolate sauce wouldn’t go astray!)
