Hi friends! How’s the weather today? It’s sunny here, so I’m making ice-cream! I love ice-cream no matter what the weatherman says. Sun. Rain. Wind. Hurricanes. Snowstorms. Swarms of locust. I’m an equal-opportunity ice-cream eater, especially if that ice cream is made with Girl Scout Cookies! I always want more! Or, in this case, “Samoa” Ice Cream. Get it? Samoa Ice Cream. Because it’s made with Samoas and you’re going to want “some more” of it…? No? Ok, it was a bad pun, but I promise, it’s really good ice cream!
I teamed up with Melissa’s Produce and The Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles to come up with this recipe. Doesn’t it look good? All that deep rich chocolate, Samoa cookie chunks and coconut flakes. Mmmmm!! Did I mention it was made with Samoa Cookies?
I have a special place in my heart for Girl Scout Cookies! Not just because they’re spectacularly delicious, but because buying Girl Scout Cookies helps fuel the Girl Scout Cookie Program and helps girls fulfill their dreams, follow their passions, and change the world! I may have told you, growing up, I was a Girl Scout and as an adult, I was a troop leader for my daughter from Daisy’s through Juniors. We’ve sold a lot of cookies through the years! Just like these girls from The Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles.
Girl Scout Cookies not only help Girl Scouts earn money for fun, educational activities and community projects, but also play a huge role in transforming girls into G.I.R.L.s (Go-getters, Innovators, Risk-takers, Leaders)™ as they learn essential life skills that will stay with them forever. While fun is part of the experience, giving back to their communities has been a hallmark of the Girl Scout Cookie Program since the first-known sale of cookies by Girl Scouts in 1917. That’s 100 years of selling cookies!
You can help the next generation of girls fulfill their dreams—and change the world. With every box of Girl Scout Cookies you buy this year, you help support tomorrow’s courage-boosting, confidence-inspiring, character-building, make-the-world-a-better-place experiences. I for one, am proud to support these girls and encourage them to learn, grow and become their very best!
Of course, they may need a little ice cream along the way. Who wouldn’t? Changing the world is hard, but I have faith the Girl Scouts are up to the task!

I was blessed with the Coconut Chips from Melissa’s Produce and the Cookies from Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles to come up with this recipe. I received no monetary compensation for this post and all opinions are 100% my own!
