Black and White Cookie Ice Cream!
My friend Christa requested a Black and White Cookie Ice Cream for her birthday this year. My first reaction was: "What? Plain chocolate and plain vanilla? That’s kinda boring…"
[I almost named this blog No Vanilla! but changed my mind when I imagined visitors NOT coming here for ice cream recipes.]
So chocolate and vanilla it is. A two-tone half chocolate, half vanilla ice cream. With cookies.
Day 2: I cooked up a Chocolate ice cream and a Vanilla-Lemon ice cream. Let these chill in the fridge overnight.
Day 3: Churned the ice creams. I made “divider cards” for the containers by cutting up postcards to size, and wrapping these in parchment paper.
I filled half the containers with Choc ice cream and cookie pieces, and let these sit in the freezer for a few hours, on their sides, to prevent the soft chocolate ice cream from seeping under the cardboard onto the other side.
When the chocolate ice cream had firmed up a bit, I churned the Vanilla-Lemon ice cream (I have a NewAir compressor machine so I can make more than one batch per day) I then removed the cards, and filled the other half of the containers.
Black and White ice cream! With black and white cookies!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHRISTA! xox

Mango, Banana, and Tangerine…
I bought a case of mangoes this week and decided to make my second Ice Cream Terrine with Jamaican flavors.
Mango: Sweet mangoes with ginger, dark rum and allspice.
Banana: Bananas caramelized with brown sugar and cinnamon, mixed with toasted coconut.
Tangerine: A blend of tangerine juice and coconut rum, with dark chocolate freckles.
As every experiment is a learning process, I know that if I made these ice creams again I would do a few things differently. These are all way too sweet!
When I post the recipes for these flavors, they will be modified from the ones that I originally used.
Next: Mango-Pineapple Gingerbeer Sorbet.
P.S. Wow, Ackee ice cream exists!
