Keep Cool with Chill Baby Ice Cream Sandwiches

Gluten-Free Goodies

chill baby ice cream sandwiches!

The main menu for your Labor Day BBQ blowout is locked and loaded (burgers, tofu dogs, Aunt Ida’s potato salad). But you still need dessert ammunition.

One bulletproof strategy? Shoot off a couple of rounds of Chill Baby ice cream sandwiches.

Local food blogger and chef Callie Beckmann has accomplished a seemingly impossible mission: gluten-free ice cream that tastes like the real deal. Using fresh produce and high-quality ingredients, she whips up small-batch flavors and pairs them with an arsenal of Glow cookies (made with garbanzo bean flour).

Explosive choices switch up each season. In summer, try gingersnap honey lemonade, dairy-free double chocolate fresh mint chip, and snickerdoodle peach sweet tea. Rumor has it fall may bring double chocolate salted caramel and Beckmann’s legendary gingersnap mango curry.

When battling a sweet tooth, it’s your best defense.
