First RAIN of the fall this morning so what might I post about today??? You guessed it ice cream. I've been having a great time using my ice cream maker. In fact I even borrowed my neighbors bowl so I could make 2 batches within a few minutes of each other.
As I was
tearing through glancing over my copy of Vegan a la Mode I found this recipe for curried peanut butter ice cream. Interesting flavors, my ice cream maker was calling. The ingredients in this recipe are blended together then chilled in the refrigerator before being put into the ice cream machine. So EASY..... wait maybe I shouldn't share that part. This was really really hard to make.... hours of time went into it.
As I mentioned in a previous post I sent some over to my neighbors. This was one of them, Curried Peanut Butter Ice Cream. So rich and creamy. Delicious. Of the two ice creams I've made this was my preference. My friend told me they did a taste test with my ice creams and her boyfriend's favorite mocha chocolate chip gelato. I wanted to call a PARTY FOUL as it seemed like the deck was stacked against me. She informed me that his favorite ice cream was MINE! Oh yeah that's right. Picture me doing a little victory dance. He loved the "easy as pumpkin pie" ice cream. Thilled. No other word for it.
Armed with this new information I brought what was left of my ice cream to work. HUGE hit. Most people preferred the Easy as Pumpkin pie ice cream. Maybe it's because it's fall? Only one other person preferred the Curried Peanut Butter. But everyone LOVED them. Huge smile on my face. I'm thinking ice cream might be a great holiday gift. Changing minds about vegan ice cream one scoop at a time!
What's your favorite ice cream? Favorite recipe from Vegan a la Mode?
