Snickers are the classic from sweet bars. I think this is one of the most popular sweet snack bars. I also find it delicious, but I wanted to make it healthier from natural ingredients, without refined sugar and other unhealthy ingredients.
I’ve made classic Healthy Snickers Bars as well, you can find the recipe in my blog. This time I wanted to try something new with snickers taste, and the most popular dessert in the summer is ice cream, so why not make a snicker ice cream, but a much healthier version than the classic one? I tried and shared the recipe with you, I would be very happy if you share your thoughts about this recipe, as well as the result.
Snickers Ice Cream bars are super tasty, sweet, cooling, and the perfect healthy dessert for hot summer days. If you like classic Snickers Bars, then you must try these. These healthy Snickers Bars are dairy-free, lactose-free, sugar-free, vegan, plant-based, and egg-free.
