Sharing my Good toasted almond ice cream recipe! These delicious ice cream bars are gluten-free, and vegan-friendly, and are made with just 3 ingredients!
I am back baby. With another delicious ice cream bar recipe you *must* try ASAP.
We are going to be making a lot of your childhood favorites into a healthier version and it isn’t stopping with these almond bars. In fact – I have a list on my phone of all the ice creams we are going to recreate.
I was shaken over how many requested Toasted Almond Ice Cream Bars though so I hope you guys love these. We are obsessed over here!
I use 3 simple ingredients to make these: vanilla ice cream, raw almonds, coconut sugar, and butter/oil.
What Ingredients do You Need to Make Toasted Almond Ice Cream Recipe?
Pint of vanilla ice cream – can use vegan ice cream if preferred! I used a traditional vanilla ice cream from the store.
Raw almonds – I like to buy organic/raw and toast them myself but you could buy toasted almonds too.
Coconut sugar – you will add this to the almonds when you toast them to sweeten the ice cream pops.
Butter or oil – either work and you just need some to grease the pan for the almonds/sugar. I have also written an article on Delicious and Nutritious Almond Flour Peanut Butter Cookies.
Let the ice cream thaw out for a few minutes then begin scooping and pressing into each ice pop mold (I made 4) and spread across with a spatula so it is smooth insert popsicle sticks
Add to the freezer to set for at least 3-4 hours or overnight
Next, take almonds and add them to a food processor, and pulse to break them up into crumbs (be sure not to pulse or you will get a meal) you can also just chop with a knife
Warm a large skillet with butter then add the almonds and coconut sugar and mix and toast on medium/low heat for about 5-10 minutes, mixing every minute or so
Remove from heat and add to a plate or shallow bowl
Remove ice pops from the freezer and gently take out of the mold and cover them in the almond mixture and add to a baking sheet, pressing down the almonds so they stick
Add back to the freezer to set for at least 15 minutes and store in the freezer until ready to eat!

Ice cream contains milk and milk solids, which means whenever you eat ice cream, your body obtains the goodness of vitamin D, vitamin A, calcium, phosphorus, and riboflavin.
Apart from this, the different flavors add an extra nutrition quotient to it. For example, dark chocolate ice cream is loaded with antioxidants and flavonoids, which help in lowering your bad cholesterol and helps improve your heart health. You can get more from this video.
It Gives You Energy
If you are wondering why ice cream is good for your health, it’s because it gives you instant energy. This is because it contains an ample amount of sugar in it, which instantly makes you feel pepped up and energized.
So, next time you are low on energy, grab that scoop of ice cream and relish it.
It Helps Boost Your Immunity
No, it is not strange because ice cream can do that to your health. Ice cream is a kind of fermented food and it is said that fermented food is beneficial for our respiratory and gastrointestinal health.
If you have a better respiratory system and improved gut health, it would eventually improve your immunity.
Ice cream is such a comfort that most of us can’t resist. There’s no need to feel guilty if you think your workout at the gym just went in vain because you ate some ice cream. With moderation and self-control, ice cream can benefit your health a lot.
