Vegan Cookies & Cream Ice Cream

This month’s food meme mashup of IMBB27 and SHF20 is hosted by Reid, of the inimitable Ono Kine Grindz, everyone’s favorite Hawaiian food blog. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, allow me to clarify. Every month, many food bloggers participate in the food blogging events Is My Blog Burning? (IMBB) and Sugar High Friday (SHF), which usually occur independently, but happen to both ... Read More »

Buttermilk Sorbet

The only reason that this is called “sorbet” and not “ice cream” is the fact that there is no cream in it. Don’t let the name fool you, though, because it is still as cold and satisfying as ice cream, while having the unique flavor profile of buttermilk. When I first saw the recipe in this month’s issue of Cooking Light, I knew that I ... Read More »

Homemade Vanilla Pudding Pops

From-Scratch Vanilla Pudding Pops

When summer hits, there is nothing better than a cold, sweet treat to help cool you down. Lemonade is always a good option, but popsicles might be even better. They’re sitting there in your freezer, ready to eat as soon as you need one, and there are no dishes to wash after you’ve finished up. I have always been a fan of popsicles and like ... Read More »

Cheater’s Frozen Yogurt

This is much less of a recipe than it is an idea. It is, however, an idea that I use all the time. It’s the perfect thing when I want a really quick and easy snack or a light dessert. It is particularly practical during the summer, since it is so simple and much lighter than any ice cream. What am I taking about? It’s ... Read More »

Lemon Sherbet

At one time, sorbet and sherbert were the same thing: a frozen concoction of fruit juice, sugar and water, sometimes with additional flavoring added. Generally speaking, however, sherbet is no longer considered to be a type of sorbet, but rather a cross between it and ice cream. Sherbet is made from fruit juice and sugar, but also has an amount of milk, cream or an ... Read More »

Vegan Banana Ice Cream

Can ice cream every really be healthy? Or at least, not quite as bad for you? I have concluded that this can only really be done if you take out what is truly (health-wise) objectionable about the dish: the cream. Skipping over any debate about whether something that contains no cream can legitimately be labeled as ice cream, this was one fine frozen dessert. It ... Read More »

Chunky Brownie Frozen Yogurt

I am a big fan of frozen desserts, but as good as ice cream is, it can actually be a bit rich for me at times. I prefer it when the weather isn’t quite so hot, since its creaminess actually makes me incredibly thirsty. It’s good to drink lots of fluids on a hot day, of course, but I don’t want to get thirstier when ... Read More »

Plum Sorbet

plumsorbet

I read a great post on Chowhound about making peach sorbet. The poster determined that a minimal churning time would produce the creamiest, best tasting sorbet. I, not having given a tremendous amount of thought to the issue before, would have guessed that a longer churning time would produce a creamier result. Always game for an experiment, I tried the short churning method with a ... Read More »
