Delicious grilled donuts with strawberries and cream will become one of your favorite desserts! 

It’s a good feeling to think I survived the first year of my masters program because I really didn’t think that I would. Don’t get me wrong. There have been a lot of times that I’ve wondered if it’s the right thing to do with everything else going on in my life but I usually get my answer pretty quick that it is. It’s just stressful. Most of my worries stem from wondering if I’m smart enough. But I’m slowly plugging away and getting it done. And now I’m on the downhill. One more year.

The break from papers will be nice but I’m not going to lie–I am exhausted and need to spend my entire week break packing for our move. It always seems to be one thing after another. But that’s life, the house is a mess but everything  is good.

To celebrate I pulled out my indoor grill (the weather still isn’t quite to outdoor grilling season) and made some dessert to celebrate. This recipe is so simple and easy because you can just throw on the donuts as the grill is still hot from dinner. This grill has already gotten a lot of use around our house. Cooking just isn’t happening with the move in a few weeks so crockpot meals and grilling have been my go to.

These grilled donuts are amazing hot off the grill. The grilled part is crispy and has a delicious grilled flavor while the frosting on the donuts melts into a mouth watering flavor. The combination together is nothing short of heaven. Top it with some strawberries and cream and yeah, it can only be described as heavenly.

Black & White Ice Cream Cake

by Aly Laughlin

In celebration of my birthday this past week I made the most epic vegan ice cream cake with a base layer of vanilla cookies and melted white chocolate, then chocolate ice cream, chocolate cookies and melted chocolate, vanilla ice cream and coconut whipped cream. It’s reminiscent of those oh-so-famous ice cream cakes from the likes of Carvel, Baskin Robbins and Dairy Queen that I used to love as a kid…but sooooo much better! Any wishes made with this cake are sure to come true! ​🎂

Ingredients
2 cups crushed vegan vanilla cookies (I used Midel Vanilla Snaps)
1 8 oz bag vegan white chocolate chips (I used King David Kosher)
2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 pints softened vegan chocolate ice cream (I used NadaMoo Gotta Do Chocolate)
2 cups crushed vegan chocolate cookies (I used Oreo Birthday Cake Sandwich Cookies)
1 8 oz bag vegan chocolate chips (I used King David Kosher)
2 pints softened vegan vanilla ice cream (I used NadaMoo Vanilla…Ahhh)

1 15 oz can coconut cream or full fat coconut milk, chilled
2/3 cup organic powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

*Note: You will also need a springform pan for this recipe.
Black & White Ice Cream Cake
Directions
To start, clear enough space in your freezer for the size of your springform pan. Prepare your springform pan with a circle of parchment paper in the bottom.In a microwaveable bowl, melt the white chocolate chips with 1 tablespoon of the coconut oil in 30 second intervals, stirring until completely smooth. Stir the crushed vanilla cookies into the white chocolate until well combined. Spread this heavenly mixture into the bottom of the springform pan (atop the layer of parchment paper). Pop the pan into the freezer for about 20 minutes before adding the next layer.

​Next, spread the softened chocolate ice cream on top of the vanilla-white chocolate layer. Return the pan to the freezer again.

Meanwhile, in another microwaveable bowl, melt the chocolate chips with the remaining tablespoon of coconut oil in 30 second intervals until completely smooth. Stir the crushed chocolate cookies into the chocolate until well combined. Once the chocolate ice cream layer has hardened, spread this mixture on top to form your delectable chocolate crunchies layer. Return the pan to the freezer for another 20 minutes.

Next, spread the softened vanilla ice cream on top of the chocolate crunchies layer. Return the pan to the freezer yet again.

Finally, using a standing mixer or hand mixer, mix the solid portion of the coconut cream or milk with the powdered sugar and vanilla until it forms stiff peaks. You can save the liquid portion for smoothies and other recipes. Spread this creamy goodness atop the hardened vanilla ice cream layer and return to the freezer (yes, one more time) until solid. Decorate as you see fit and enjoy!

Welcome Spring With Smoothie Bowl

By | Dessert Recipes

Spring is almost here, well at least in Austin, and we are excited about all the fresh produce gracing our farmers’ markets! The sunshine has us craving lots of sweet berries and long afternoons hanging out at Zilker Park with our friends and dogs. We love this Blackberry Ice Cream Smoothie Bowl recipe because it feels a little bit healthy and a little big indulgent at the same time. If you don’t have fresh berries available at your markets just yet, you can totally sub frozen ones. Enjoy!

 

Ice Cream Sandwiches For Chocolate Fans

By | Dessert Recipes
The Chocolate Dipped Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches is for all of our chocolate friends out there! Because sometimes you just Gotta Do Chocolate! It’s one of our classic coconut milk ice cream flavors. The creamy, chocolate always satisfies our sweet tooth. We even found a way to make our chocolate flavor even chocolatier! We sandwiched it between two vegan chocolate chip cookies and then dipped the whole thing in even more chocolate. Perfect for an afternoon snack, dessert or those late night chocolate cravings!
