Brown Butter apples and salted honey caramel step up this easy, three ingredient cinnamon ice cream. Healthy and full of fall flavors!
It’s Saturday and I feel like throwing more ice cream in your face.
Don’t worry I haven’t lost my mind. It’s Saturday and I am popping in to say “heyyyy!” But I feel like you need this ice cream in your life!
Yes it is the fall and everyone is all like “hail all pumpkin!” but I am over here like “Gimme that spoon! I am digging into that ice cream!” But I am enjoying the best of both worlds, fall flavors and ice cream. Winning.
And I felt like celebrating today. I am experienced my first blogging conference yesterday – Chopped Con! Luckily it was here in KC, but I was thrilled to meet some friends that I have been talking to for the past year, yet without every meeting them! Blogging has brought on a whole new term of friendships to me – we all get it. We are each other’s biggest cheerleaders with the same interests. And it is totally acceptable to spend hours talking about food. My hubby starts to roll his eyes after our fifth conversation in one evening wondering if french ties and chocolate should get together. But have no fear, my internet friends get it.
My blogging idols, such as Ali from Gimme Some Oven, Dana and John from Minimalist Baker and Lindsay and Bjork from Pinch of Yum all made an appearance and I was able to mingle and exchange a few words with them all. Secretly attempting to pick their brains to learn some new tricks. I was blown away with how approachable and open they were. Such a treat to learn they are just as friendly, if not more, than they are on their blog.
Beyond meeting my idols, I met those amazing friends I mentioned earlier. Becky from The Cookie Rookie (one of my first blogging friends and she has been such a great inspiration and cheerleader!), Krista from Joyful Healthy Eats, and Christina from Dessert for Two just to name a few!
It was like Christmas morning to me. So how else should I celebrate than with ice cream?
So with all the excitement around my first conference and the weekend, I am just gonna give you ten reasons why you need you get your booty in the kitchen and makes this ASAP.
1 ) Ice cream. There is really no reason to eat it except for pure pleasure.
2) It takes only 20 minutes to make (if you don’t chill it) until you can stuff your face.
3) Brown butter. No explanation.
4) Salted Honey Caramel. I can eat this stuff with a spoon, sans the ice cream.
5) There is fruit so it essentially healthy for you and can be considered breakfast.
6) It is dairy free so no cows were harmed in the making of this ice cream.
7) Its Saturday. Every Saturday isn’t complete until dessert.
8) Dessert makes everyone happy. Scoops for everyone!
9) A chilly dessert requires a warm cup of hot cocoa. Bonus points if its spiked with Baileys and/or Kahlua. No judging here.
10) It’s stretchy pants season, so add another scoop on there.
And a hug virtual hug to Christina and Becky for telling me to share this ah-mazing recipe with you all – it was one of those ‘photography days’ that just did not go so well!
