Cookies 'n Cream Parfait

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Kroger. The opinions and text are all mine.

Prepare yourself for what I'm about to share with you. There's a new ice cream that's high in protein, low in calories, and easy on your wallet. Sounds like a dream come true, right?!

New Simple Truth Low Cow Lite Ice Cream is available ONLY at Kroger and my Kroger had it for $3.99 per pint. Like I mentioned it's low in calories (80% less fat and 60% fewer calories than regular ice cream) and high in protein (24 g per pint to be exact). Even if you do eat the whole pint at one time it contains only 240-280 calories! Don't worry though, it's not icy or chalky and definitely doesn't taste like "low calorie" ice cream. The hardest part is letting it thaw a few minutes but once you do that it's rich, creamy, and perfect. Mine was the perfect consistency as soon as I got it home from the store to taste test. ;-)

The best part for us is that Low Cow is non-GMO, gluten free, and made with absolutely no artificial ingredients or preservatives. And I know you are wondering so I'll just go ahead and share the flavors with you:

  • Chocolate
  • Vanilla Bean
  • Sea Salt Caramel
  • Lemon Cake
  • Mint Chocolate Chip
  • Birthday Cake

I picked up all six flavors at my local Kroger as soon as they hit the shelves. When I got home (and after I taste tested all six flavors!), I made a Cookies β€˜n Cream parfait for myself and one for Scott.

Cookies β€˜n Cream Parfait

I made the cookies similar to our "The Most Amazing Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever" recipe but you could also use our Chocolate Oatmeal Almond Butter Cookies as the base.

Ingredients:

For the cookies:

  • 1/2 can (150 g) organic garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • 1/4 cup gluten free quick cooking oats
  • 1 whole organic egg
  • 2 squares dark chocolate (70% or higher - crushed)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract (avoid HFCS)
  • 1 Tbsp almond butter
  • ΒΌ cup Stevia in the raw
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees
  2. Add all ingredients, excluding chocolate, into a food processor
  3. Pulse food processor until ingredients form a smooth texture
  4. Once ingredients are combined into a smooth texture, fold chocolate into batter
  5. Bake cookies for 10 minutes

Let your cookies cool while you slightly thaw your Simple Truth Low Cow Lite Ice Cream. Once the ice cream is easy to scoop, add a few scoops to the bottom of your dish, next add a layer of crushed cookies, and then another layer of ice cream. Top with more crushed cookies. We used a combination of chocolate and vanilla bean ice cream but you really can't go wrong with any of the flavors!

Let me know what your favorite flavor is and what recipes you come up with!
