It has been almost a full month since my summer vacation officially started and I would have thought I would have had a lot more time to dedicate to blogging, but not so much. I am still working at the church and picking up gigs where I can to pay the bills. Doesn't sound much like a "vacation" at all, but, it is what it is.
So, what have I been up to since my last post? A lot.
Here's quick flashback.
I came up with this ice "cream" a few weeks ago, but have been preoccupied with parties, patio drinking, Aphrodite's 18th and giving low frequency souls too many chances that they're not worthy of. It's been a whirlwind of a summer already and it just started. It can only get better from here and am excited about all of the fantastic opportunities that are already popping up since I dropped some dead weight. Bring it on universe, I am ready!
This ice "cream" would be a bit smoother with an ice cream maker, but I don't have that fancy crap. So, I made do and let it thaw and still we have a creamy delicious vegan treat, Ta-dah!
Serves: 6 High Frequency Flying Souls
1 Can Coconut Cream
6 Cups Sliced Strawberries (4 Cups, plus an additional 2 Cups)
1 Cup 100% Maple Syrup
6 Gluten Free Cones
1/2 Cup Gluten Free Graham Crackers-crushed
Whip the coconut cream till stiff (ish) in a food processor, add the 4 cups of the strawberries and add maple syrup. Yes, I added a whole cup, because. Shit. That stuff is fucking delicious, but feel free to cut it down a bit. However, it is still refined sugar free!!! Maple Syrup it, the fuck up. Process till smooth. Then pour into a bread loaf (preferably metal) pan and stir in the additional 2 Cups of strawberries and freeze.
Freeze over night or if you're a fancy pants, process it in an ice cream maker. If you're just a normal person, like me, after freezing it overnight, let it sit out till it softens. I let mine sit in some warm water to hasten the process, but be careful to not let it soften too much. Scoop onto some gluten free cones, or scoop into a dish. Top with strawberry topping or fresh strawberries and some crushed graham cracker topping.
You're in control of who and what you let into your life. Make smart choices.
Eat vegan ice cream.
