Summer Soft Serves (dairy free)

Maybe some of you thought I’d move on from the ice creams and stop talking about them, but no, that did not happen. Instead I’m still the crazy ice cream person developing new flavors and dreaming of ice cream. Sorry! But really, I’m not that sorry. Because why should I be? We’re talking about a dessert. And these things are totally good for you anyways

Even though our ice cream ebook is now finished and it has started its adventure around the world (maybe you’ve got yours already?), ideas of different kinds of flavors keep popping into my head. First I thought that no, I couldn’t do more, that it would be time to move on but then…I just gave in. So I made some more and now I’m sharing the love for ice creams with you.

In our book, there’s a whole chapter for Instant Ice Creams that are really quick and easy to make and can be savored straight after making them. Even though all the creamy ice creams made with an ice cream machine or refreshing popsicles are really nice, these ‘fast food’ ice cream remained my favorite. Especially the Coconut Sundae in the book because it resembles vanilla soft serve a lot and I’m a huge soft serve fan. There’s something in the soft texture that makes me a fan. And you just gotta love the melted ice cream that needs to be scooped from the sides of the bowl. Oh yummeeee.

So to be prepared for Summer and to be able to make instant ice cream whenever you like, I’ve gathered a few important notions for you! Check them below:

1. Chop ripe bananas into small pieces and put them in the freezer in small boxes or in ziploc bags.

2. Have a few sorts of berries in your freezer as well.

3. Always (!) have a couple of full fat coconut milk cans in your fridge.

In addition to these essential tips, I recommend having vanilla extract or vanilla powder, raw cacao powder or unsweetened cocoa powder and some honey or other sweetener in your cupboards pretty much always. As from these simple ingredients you can make some ice cream magic in just minutes!
