Summer is here! Friday was the last day of school for the kids in our neighborhood. We live across the street from the park and the kids are already out and about enjoying their summer vacation. Summer and ice cream go hand-in-hand if you ask me. I am so ready for ice cream season!
We churned up a batch of 4 Ingredient Chocolate Cookies ‘n’ Cream Ice Cream to celebrate the start of summer. The recipe comes from my dear friend, Alice’s, new cookbook, Savory Sweet Life. Alice’s book is filled with 100 simple and delicious recipes that are perfect for any and every family occasion. And good news-we are giving away a copy today!
Savory Sweet Life is one of those cookbooks that you can’t put down. There is a photo for every single recipe and the photos are stunning. Warning-your stomach might growl at you while reading Alice’s book:) The book is organized by occasion, such as, Sunday mornings, Game Day, Potlucks, and Family Game Night. The recipes are easy to prepare and use basic ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen. Alice also shares personal stories, time-saving tips, and practical advice. I love everything about the book!
The first recipe I tried from Savory Sweet Life was Alice’s Chocolate Cookies ‘n’ Cream Ice Cream. It is amazing! Alice created the recipe for her daughter who is sensitive to dairy. Yep, this ice cream is dairy-free! I promise you will never know it! The ice cream is so rich and creamy.
So what is the secret? Coconut milk! You blend coconut milk, sugar, and cocoa powder together and churn the mixture in an ice cream maker. You add the crushed Oreos during the last 5 minutes of churning and that’s it. So simple! I still can’t believe there are only 4 ingredients needed to create such a decadent ice cream. I know we are going to be making this 4 Ingredient Chocolate Cookies ‘n’ Cream Ice Cream ALL summer long.
I can’t wait to cook and bake my way through Savory Sweet Life. I know it won’t be put back on our bookshelf for a long time.
