You know I’m know I am truly loved? Because people spot shirts like this and not only think of me, but get it for me. So blessed to have such radical people surrounding me (shot out to the wonderful Wegers). Do I have a bacon problem? Is there counseling for bacon lust? Okay so I’ve posted 15 or so recipes featuring bacon. Oh damn, now that I look at this maybe I do, especially since this blog hasn’t even reached its first birthday. Well I am forced to do another bacon post in honor of my new t-shirt. I know you’re disappointed and I hate to do it (NOT) but here is a NEW recipe today (if you want more click my recipe page to discover more). What to do to celebrate bacon? It should definitely highlight my taste buds craving for savory-yet sweet. Maybe a little Elvis inspiration, or rather my nephew Trenton who loves peanut butter and banana sandwiches now, and who crushes ice cream? It’s getting hotter and I for one do not like cooking or baking in the summer. How about something cold? Then it just came to me: Almond Butter Banana Ice Cream on a Bacon Chocolate Dipped Ice Cream Cone. Is it too much? Possibly, okay yes, but we’re celebrating?!?
- 16 oz almond butter
- 2 bananas
- 1/2 cup coconut milk
- 2 tbsp local honey (optional)
- Enjoy Life Chocolate
Let’s Make it Happen: I do not have an ice cream maker, but that does not stop me from creating frozen deliciousness. This is so easy. Just process the almond butter, banana, coconut milk, and honey. Place in a glass bowl and freeze until solid. Now let’s handle that bacon. How to get the cone shape? I used a kombucha bottle (also a beer bottle). Wrap the bacon around said cone. Bake @ 350 for 30 minutes. Let rest so that it sets up and takes on the cone shape. Melt a little bit of Enjoy Life chocolate. Dip the top of the cone into the chocolate (I confess I may have been a little excited to take the picture and didn’t give mine long enough, I am constantly working on patience, which is why my fingers are also chocolatey). Take the option to sprinkle with chopped almonds. Set in the fridge (or the freezer real quick) so the chocolate hardens. Reprocess the ice cream—> this is at least my method because I find it makes it creamy. Scoop ice cream onto the cone and you are go to enjoy!
