Easy Paleo Cookie Dough Ice Cream


From the title of this post you should realize that the recipe for this “ice cream” is frighteningly easy. All it is is frozen banana chunks, almond butter, salt, vanilla and cacao powder whirled in a food processor with some edible cookie dough thrown in. It is not like real ice cream. You see that…

Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream {vegan}


I’ve seen recipes for vegan banana “ice cream” floating around Pinterest for a while now. I’m big into real ice cream (have my own ice cream maker and cardboard pints for storing in the freezer) so I thought I would try out the substitute and see how it compares. This particular recipe was found at…

Tres Leches Cake Ice Cream


This past week I was invited to Kyna and Lucas’s place for giant tacos. What are giant tacos? They’re sort of like an overstuffed quesadilla. Lucas heats the tortilla up in a frying pan and gets the cheese all melty. Then he opens the quesadilla back up and lets you stuff it with whatever taco…

Salted Caramel Ice Cream


For my birthday this year my sister bought me an ice cream recipe book. It was the perfect gift because I’ve been obsessed with making homemade ice cream recently. But I was a bit skeptical that anything in the book could top the insanely delicious ice cream I’ve already made. The first recipe I decided…

Vanilla Bean Ice Cream


Ever since I discovered vanilla bean ice cream – and I have this faint recollection that my friend Heather introduced me to it in high school – I’ve become a bit of a vanilla ice cream snob. As in: I don’t like regular vanilla ice cream anymore. It’s got to be vanilla bean. I don’t…

Thin Mint Ice Cream


It’s summer. (Yay.) It’s 90 plus degrees out. (Boo.) I’m craving ice cream. We are having a heat wave here in Portland, Ore. It’s my third summer here and I’m pretty sure the summers are getting hotter and hotter, earlier and earlier. The first summer I was here I don’t remember it being particularly hot…

Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream


I was so sad when I finished off my last half-pint of Peanut Butter Ice Cream, I promptly decided I needed to make more. After conferring with a friend, we decided the only way to improve upon the already perfect ice cream would be to add some Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. After all, don’t peanut…

Peanut Butter Ice Cream


I grew up in a town of approximately 4,000 people. It was the 1980’s. Our ice cream choices were limited to two ice cream shops: Charlie’s Shake Shop, which was a cool place to hang out and play video games – it eventually turned into a video store – and then there was a smaller…

French Vanilla Ice Cream


The last time I tried to make home-made ice cream I wasn’t fully prepared. As in, I really had nothing to put the ice cream in once it was made. I believe pint jars would probably do fine, but I didn’t have any wide-mouthed ones, which I thought would work the best. I ended up…

It comes out a bit like soft serve immediately but freezes into actual ice-cream overnight. ingredients. 2 c. whipping cream, divided 2 squares (1 oz. each), semi sweet baking chocolate, cut into chunks 2 squares (1 oz. each), unsweetened baking…
