Oatmeal Açaí Nice Cream Sandwich Recipe

I never had much Açaí until my family went to Maui last year. There, I had some form of Açaí everyday, and I was hooked. The texture was amazing, the flavor was so perfect, and everything I had was filling, yet extremely healthy. Having the sweet tooth that I do, I decided I had to make some form of dessert that was a little more satisfying to my sweet tooth!

I decided to make some amazing Oatmeal Açaí Nice Cream Sandwiches. I’m so glad I did, because they are absolutely amazing. The best part is that they’re healthy, easy to make, and taste so delicious. Give them a try, you will not regret it!

You start off these sandwiches with a simple Oatmeal Cookie. The best part is the cookie itself is so easy to make and only requires TWO ingredients, oatmeal and bananas. After you make the cookies, just set them aside to cool and get your nice cream ready. Sambazon Original Superfruit Packs make the creamiest Nice Cream. I like to add some frozen bananas for an extra creamy texture, frozen strawberries for depth of flavor, and a little honey for some extra sweetness. You can either blend this in a blender or use a food processor. I add a little non-dairy milk to help everything blend together and then freeze the Nice Cream for a couple hours before serving.

This Nice Cream is smooth, creamy, full of flavor, and pairs so well with the oatmeal cookies. You’ll find yourself eating this for breakfast, and you won’t even feel bad about it! It's chock full of healthy omegas, antioxidants, and fiber. It’s the perfect Ramadan dessert that will satisfy your sweet tooth and give you a great boost for fasting the next day!

The Cookies store well in a bag in the fridge, and the Nice Cream in a Tupperware in the freezer. The whole process takes under thirty minutes and will ensure you have a healthy yummy dessert any time of the day that takes a minute to assemble. It’s great for kids, and will satisfy any sweet tooth! Enjoy!

Thanks for this amazingly simple and I’m sure absolutely delicious recipe. For the oatmeal, is it raw oats or do you have to cook oatmeal? I have steel cut oats. If they’re raw, is that fine? Thanks!

Hi Tamara! The oatmeal is cooked. You can definitely use your raw steel cut oats to quickly make some oatmeal for the recipe! Hope this helps!

Can any berry be used instead of strawberry? Is acai naturally not sweet unlike blueberries?

Hi Sharon! You can use another berry if you prefer - just make sure it is frozen as this will make the Nice Cream creamier!

We tried making these on Saturday and the cookies turned out soggy/mushy from the oatmeal. Any recommendations?

Hi Megan! We recommend baking the cookies on parchment paper and making the cookies less thick. Let us know if this helps!

How do you know when the cookies are done? I baked mine for 12 minutes, but I couldn’t get them off the cookie sheet. I even waited a few minutes before trying to remove them.

Hi Sheryl! The best solution is to bake them on parchment paper. Some pans tend to stick more especially if you're using a ripe banana. Try this and let us know if it helps! :)
