I don’t usually do a lot of football watching, but I must admit I am a sucker for the Super Bowl. It’s probably because it’s an excuse for me to cook food. And lots of it.
This year I made Super Bowl Sundaes. Now the difference between my sundae and a sundae you would get at a restaurant watching the game, is that mine is actually good for you. Obviously. All of the ingredients are foods that your body can actually use as fuel. This is what the players should be eating before the big game. It’s jammed packed with good-for-you fats, plant proteins, antioxidants, and a touch of natural sweetness.
The base of this sundae is my homemade ice cream. Who knew that you could make ice cream without dairy? Or an ice cream maker? The creaminess of the coconut milk and the light hint of vanilla makes this ice cream just melt in your mouth. This recipe is SO good and even easier to make. You’ll never buy the real stuff again. This is the real stuff now, because it’s made with real food. Satisfaction guaranteed. Go Giants!
Coconut Ice Cream
1 can organic coconut milk
1/2 tbsp pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup raw agave syrup
1 tbsp vodka (or any other liquor – this helps the ice cream to stay creamy and not freeze solid)
1 banana, optional (if you want coconut banana ice cream)
– put all ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth
– pour 3/4 of mixture in popable ice cube trays and freeze. Put remaining 1/4 mixutre in the fridge
– once frozen, put everything back into the blender or food processor and process until smooth
* if using a blender, you may have to smoosh the mixture a couple times with a wooden spoon (if you have a Vitamix then you’re golden).
For sundaes, scoop ice cream into a bowl. Top with coconut syrup, banana, cacao nibs, crushed nuts, goji berries, etc.
