There's a new go-to snack in the freezer
(This post may contain affiliate links)
My guess is it will granted a permanent spot, in many flavor combinations.
To know me is to know of my great love of ice cream. So with treat week upon us I thought, it's a perfect reason to give a couple of recipes a try. I'd bookmarked a number with frozen yogurt requiring an ice cream maker, but this one was so different that I wanted to make an attempt
Throw ingredients together, shake for five minutes, and you have something resembling ice cream?
I blended everything. Put it in the bag, with the salt and ice in another around it. And started to shake, and shake, and shake some more
Really? Five minutes at a vigorous pace? Where's that cute boy when you need him? Is a random teenager anywhere close by?
The kitties came to see what was up. My hands were getting cold, but I could feel it starting to firm up
When it took it out .. Perfect! It really was. I stood back a bit in shock.
A few smoked almonds topped it off
That's pretty much all she wrote for that afternoon snack .. fantastic!
All sorts of flavor combinations come to mind, many with fruit. If you make some, please let me know what's good.
