N'ice Cream Cookbook Giveaway!
If you're a fan of sweet frozen treats - and really, who isn't? - then you need to get your hands on the N'ice Cream cookbook! Bloggers Virpi and Tuulia, the creative forces behind the blogs Vanelja and Tuulia.co, teamed up to create this gorgeous book packed with 80 better-for-you frozen goodies. They were sick of seeing all the crummy ingredients in traditional ice creams and non-dairy frozen treats so they created this cookbook as a 'candy land' of wholesome, vegan recipe alternatives. And with recipes like Apple Avocado Mint Popsicles, Dreamy Chocolate Sundaes and Salted Caramel Milkshakes you'll never miss the old stuff! All of the recipes can be made without an ice cream maker, which I love since I don't own one myself. I also love how simple and healthy all of the ingredients in the book are. No crazy ingredients, just whole, healthy foods blended and frozen to perfection. The best part this book comes out TODAY! Yup, you can find it on store shelves at your local bookstore this afternoon. Or, you can scroll all the way to the bottom of the page and enter for a chance to win a FREE copy for yourself! Either way, enjoy the recipe for the sweet and simple Coconut Sundae with Peanut Butter Caramel Sauce Virpi and Tuulia were kind enough to share with us below.
Ice cream sundaes have a lovely nostalgic vibe, and this quick version of a vanilla sundae is unbelievably easy, yet so creamy. You need only four or five ingredients! Serves 2.
1 (14-ounce/400-ml) can full-fat coconut milk (refrigerated overnight)
2 frozen bananas
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon maple syrup, optional
Peanut Butter–Caramel Sauce
1 tablespoon peanut butter
1 tablespoon maple syrup or other sweetener
2 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk or other plant-based milk
Open the coconut milk can and scoop the thick, solid white cream into a blender. Add the bananas and vanilla and blend until smooth, scraping down the sides of the blender as necessary. Taste and add maple syrup, if desired.
To make the peanut butter caramel sauce, combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and stir until you get a nice thick caramel sauce.
Pour the ice cream into bowls, top with the Peanut Butter–Caramel Sauce, and enjoy!
