Monkey Sundaes

Don’t judge this till you try it. It’s is absolutely amazing and not too bananay. It’s like a soft serve, banana split!

bananas , frozen and chopped into 1″ pieces
milk (regular, almond, soy…)
toppings of choice (coconut, chocolate syrup, peanut butter, Nutella…)

In a food processor blend bananas with enough milk to get them completely blended and smooth.
Top with toppings of choice. I love fresh berries and chocolate sauce…


Ben and Jerry’s Coffee Heath Bar Ice Cream

Whenever we have extra whipping cream to use, I try new ice cream recipes and that freezes the cream without wasting. This last time, I made my own toffee and added a chocolate ganache to the made ice cream.

My favorite ice cream cookbook has to be this one

4 Heath bars , Chopped into 1/2 inch to 1 inch pieces
2 large eggs
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups heavy cream or whipping cream
1 cup milk
3 tablespoons coffee granules
Chocolate syrup or ganache (if wanted)

Whisk eggs till light and fluffy (1-2 minutes). Add sugar and mix until blended. Add cream, milk and 2 tablespoons of coffee and still until coffee is dissolved and mixture is blended.
Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and freeze following the manufacturer’s instructions.
After ice cream freezes, add candy and remaining coffee.

Cadet Dessert

This has become a favorite around our place. It is so simple to make, just make sure to make it 12 hours before serving so the ice cream isn’t soft. Here’s a quote from the lady I got the recipe from:
“I served this to cadets during the 4 years we were stationed at West Point and it became known as “THE” dessert. Cadets would walk into our quarters and ask if I was serving “THE” dessert they had heard so much about form the previous cadet guests! There was never a single piece left over!” ~Susan Bowen
