Vegan Key Lime Pie Ice Cream

Vegan Key Lime Pie Ice Cream | Popcorn & ChocolateAs the weather gets warmer, all I want to eat is ice cream. Every single day. All day long. I have one of those problems where if I don’t buy ice cream then I’m fine and I wont really want it, but once it’s in the freezer, I can’t stop thinking about it and I must eat it. I have to. It calls out to me from the depth of the freezer, begging to be eaten. And I just cannot say no to that.5 Ingredient Ice Cream | Popcorn & Chocolate Especially this ice cream. This ice cream right here is so refreshing and tastes exactly like key lime pie. I can’t get enough of it. Plus it has a secret ingredient that is too good to pass up: Oreo’s! Golden vanilla Oreo’s are crumbled through the ice cream to mimic the beloved pie crust in key lime pie.Key Lime Pie Ice Cream with Oreo's | Popcorn & ChocolatePlus, plus it is super easy to make and only uses 6 ingredients. That sounds like a winning combination for ice cream to me. So what will you need? Read below to find out!

5 Ingredient Easy At Home Ice Cream | Popcorn & Chocolate

Ingredients:

  • 1 can of coconut milk
  • coconut sugar
  • juice from 4 key limes
  • vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • Golden Oreo’s

Directions:

  1. In a small saucepan over low to medium heat, combine the first 5 ingredients. Stir occasionally to combine.
  2. Let the mixture cool for a couple of minutes and then pour into an ice cream maker. Make sure that the bowl of your ice cream maker has been in the freezer for several hours beforehand.
  3. Once the mixture turns thick, you can crush the Golden Oreo’s and sprinkle in as it continues to churn for a couple of minutes.
  4. Store in the freezer to let harden or enjoy straight away! Note: it takes a couple of minutes to thaw, so if you are planning on serving it later, just leave an extra 5 minutes for it to thaw!

Green Smoothie | Popcorn & Chocolate

Grapefruit Green Smoothie

Grapefruit Green Smoothie | Popcorn & ChocolateRose and I sometimes like to play this hypothetical game where we choose a color and then list the types of food we would be able to eat if we could only eat foods that color. For example if the color was red you could eat red apples, strawberries, red peppers, tomato sauce, etc. etc. It’s rather fun and addicting although sometimes the yummiest colored food don’t lend well to a very healthy spectrum of foods (i.e. brown for nut butters and chocolate except what fruit or veg is brown..? Potatoes? lots and lots of potatoes).Grapefruit Green Smoothie | Popcorn & ChocolateGreen would be pretty nice to have because you would get some leaves, avocado, green apples, Brussels sprouts, pesto… lots of fresh foods, although sweets would be difficult to come by (Avocado pudding??). Although, now that I think of it if you like green apple flavored things you would be able to have those lollipops and hard candies. Green apple was my go to flavor for candy – especially with jolly ranchers, so I would be pretty smitten.Grapefruit Green Smoothie | Popcorn & ChocolateAnd if you chose green you would get to drink green smoothies, like this refreshing grapefruit green smoothie we have here. I mean just look at that lovely shade of green – doesn’t it make you so thirsty? There is something so refreshing about a green smoothie, especially after a workout – I can just feel the health benefits running through me. Sometimes I wonder if I’m too healthy at times… then I go eat chocolate and forget what I’m thinking about.Grapefruit Green Smoothie | Popcorn & ChocolateAnyways, back to green foods, in particular this green smoothie. It has spinach, grapefruit (yum!!), some banana and some mango and some coconut water and that’s it! Grapefruits are fast going out of season so I wanted to take advantage of them while I can, so I’ve started adding grapefruit juice to my smoothies. It adds a nice twist to the whole smoothie, and I wonder why I’ve haven’t been doing this all winter.Grapefruit Green Smoothie | Popcorn & ChocolateGrapefruit Green SmoothieRecipe_GrapefruitGreenSmoothie_P&C

Simple as simple can be. I guess I could do pretty well if I only had to eat/drink green foods…
