Recipe Redux: Raw Blueberry Ice Cream Sandwiches

I am excited to announce that Noms McGee is now a proud member of The Recipe Redux! Each month a group of food bloggers are put to the test to create a super delicious, but good for you recipe based on a specific theme. September's theme was, "no bake desserts." The raw food diet has gained a lot of recognition in recent years for its fresh, wholesome, unprocessed plant food philosophy. Some believe when eaten in its raw, natural form plant foods offer more nourishment to our bodies.

This theme was definitely a challenge for me as I have never dared to prepare a no bake dessert! All I have ever known is baked cookies, cakes, and muffins. How on earth do you make a delectable dessert that's...raw?! As I started to research raw dessert recipes that already exist, I came across cheesecakes and pies. My mind was beginning to fry at this point when I heard a familiar sound...the ice cream man! It was a beautiful day so, why not make an ice cream sandwich?

1 1/2 cups plain yogurt
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
1 tsp. cinnamon
3 graham cracker sheets

1. In a food processor, combine yogurt and blueberries. Pulse until completely blended together.
2. Mix in the dark chocolate chips and cinnamon.
3. Break the graham cracker sheets in half. Use a spatula to spread yogurt mix onto one half of the graham cracker. Top off the yogurt with the other graham cracker half to make a sandwich.
4. Place sandwiches on a baking sheet and place in the freezer for 1 hour.

Makes 6 Ice Cream Sandwiches
