Chai Ice Cream Sandwiches

We are smack in the middle of HOT Southern Cali Summer.  It's been 100+ all week and we only want to eat frozen foods. These spiced chai ice cream sandwiches definitely hit the spot.  Made with store bought ginger thin cookies, the oven didn't even have to be turned on.

There's no messing around with low fat or light options here.  Ice cream is best when is made with real whipping cream and eggs.  This, easy to make, ice cream is some of the smoothest, creamiest ice cream you'll ever make.

Spiced Chai Ice Cream Sandwiches

2 cups whipping cream (chilled)
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
pinch of salt
6 tablespoons Trader Joe's Chai Mix (2 scoops or 6 teaspoons)
1/4 tsp. ginger

1 package of store bought ginger snaps (I love the thin Trader Joe's ones)

Combine the first 6 ingredients in a large bowl and whisk to mix well.  Pour into the bowl of an ice cream freezer and prepare according to your specific machine.  When the ice cream is done, place in an air tight container and freeze for at least 1 hour.  Using a small scoop (mine is a cookie scoop), place a scoop in the center a cookie and the flatten with the second cookie on top.  Place them back in an airtight container and freeze until solid.  Makes about 20 ice cream sandwiches.

Ice cream is our go-to when it's hot.  I have to confess that sometimes ice cream and popcorn is our dinner in the Summer.  What's you go-to cool treat when the temperatures rise? 


  1. I've made a similar chai ice cream before using the TJ's mix but never thought about sandwiches! They look amazing! Cannot wait to try this!

    1. I'm going to have to try your recipe now too. TJs should be sponsoring our posts. :)
