Toasted Coconut and Lime Vegan Ice Cream

Toasted Coconut and Lime Vegan Ice Cream

I wanted to try out making ice cream using coconut milk as the base, and got it in my head that I needed to add lots of toasted coconut and fresh lime flavor to it, too. This “ice cream” is bright and refreshing. It’s not overly sweet, and the tartness from the lime zest and juice really brighten it up. Continue Reading →

Mango Coconut Sherbet

Mango Coconut Sherbet

We had an Osterizer from my in-laws that they received as a wedding gift about a decade before I was born. They gave it to us since they rarely used it. It was amazing!

Bittersweet Chocolate-Bourbon Ice Pops

When I saw this post over at The Bitten Word, I knew that I had to finally cave in and buy some ice pop molds. I’d been considering it for a long time now, but seeing a post called Boozy Ice Pops – I mean WOW. How could I resist? These were super easy to put together, and the taste was all grown up. They were a big hit with my husband’s band mates when they rehearsed at our house tonight. There isn’t a whole lot of bourbon in them, but it’s enough to get the essence in the pops. My only complaint is that I got a bit of a gritty texture on the roof of my mouth after finishing one of these. I think maybe it was the cocoa powder. Regardless, it’s a small price to pay for such a classy take on a childhood dessert.

I’ll be using these molds for a lot of future desserts, and I can’t wait! Continue Reading →
