Are you sick of me making ice cream yet? I hope not. Because I got a KitchenAid ice cream maker attachment for my birthday last week and I am in LOVE with it. If I could marry it I probably would. Just saying. I asked the Taylor Made It Paleo Facebook friends yesterday if they liked Mint Chocolate Chip or Cookie Dough better, and the overwhelmingly obvious answer was Mint Chocolate Chip. So I made Cookie Dough. Whoops. I promise I’ll get back to that one.
Sooo remember how I mentioned my aunt and I were signing up for a bike ride a couple weeks ago? Well it’s official! We are all signed up and ready to go for Pelotonia 2014. For those of you who may not know, Pelotonia is an annual bike ride that starts here in Columbus to raise money for cancer research at the James Comprehensive Cancer Center at Ohio State. It is our first time riding and we could not be more excited! We have both pledged to ride 25 miles and raise $1200 for the event. Cancer has affected my family in a BIG way, with both of my grandmothers, all three of my aunts on my dad’s side, and my cousin Jess all having battled against it. There is no doubt in my mind that everyone reading this has been somehow touched by cancer, too, and I think we can all agree that, bottom line: Cancer blows. Period. But taking part in this race and raising money and awareness can help make it suck a little less. I would love for you to take a look at my rider profile here, and donate if you are able. And if you can’t, please share! Every donation counts, no matter the size, and 100% of EVERY DOLLAR is donated directly to cancer research. How awesome is that? So what do you say? LET’S KICK CANCER’S BUTT!
AND EAT ICE CREAM!
- For the ice cream:
- 1 can coconut milk, full fat
- 3 tbsp honey
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3 egg yolks
- For the cookie dough:
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1/4 cup sunflower seed butter (or other nut/seed butter)
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- dash of vanilla
- 1/8 tsp sea salt
- 1/4 cup Enjoy Life chocolate chips (or dark chocolate chips)
- For the ice cream, combine coconut milk, honey, and vanilla in a small saucepan over media heat.
- Stir in egg yolks and continue to whisk until mixture comes to a low boil.
- Remove from heat, allow to cool, then transfer to a small bowl and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
- To make the cookie dough, combine all cookie dough ingredients except chocolate chips in a small bowl and mix until you have a crust-like mixture that you will be able to crumble.
- Fold in chocolate chips.
- Store in refrigerator until ice cream is chilled.
- Once ice cream is chilled, pour mixture into ice cream maker and use as directed, adding crumbled cookie dough in just before the ice cream is finished. If you do not have an ice cream maker, pour ice cream mixture into a bread pan (9×5 or similar) and freeze. Stir in cookie dough once ice cream has developed a little bit thicker of a consistency. Then continue to freeze until full ice cream consistency is reached.
