Fig Ice Cream with Black Mission Fig Compote

Fig Ice Cream recipe

I almost let this summer's garden fig harvest end without trying this ice cream. If you like ice cream...if you like fresh figs...you have to try this ice cream! Even if you've never tasted a fresh fig, but you like ice cream...you have to try this ice cream! This ice cream is what I've been up to with the last of my edible garden's figs.

Olive Oil Gelato

Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil Gelato - Ice Cream recipe | TeenieCakes.com

Organic Extra-Virgin Olive Oil Gelato. Olive Oil gelato? It's the "olive oil" + "gelato" that caught my full attention. I just couldn't fathom what an olive oil gelato (or even an ice cream) would taste like. So it was a sure thing that anything else that was on my list to make these next weeks was going to be gently bumped down the rather lengthy to-dos so I could make this unusual flavor gelato a priority!

It will be your little secret that these hand dipped, chocolate covered frozen banana bon-bons with pistachios are full of potassium and antioxidants!

My palate has been re-awakened with a flavor I haven't had since I was still a kid in grade school. Now my mind is all a buzz to incorporate my rediscovered childhood love, Guava. I've never actually tasted a real guava fruit, yet. But I have always loved the nectar/juice and can't wait to incorporate the guava flavor into future posts. Since I could only get my hands on the nectar right now, I'm using it in this

Simply Homemade – Strawberry Ice Cream

Homemade Strawberry Ice Cream recipe | TeenieCakes.com

What I really liked about the ingredients for this homemade strawberry ice cream was that there were no eggs involved. No eggs equated to not having to precook a custard. I'm not opposed or averse to ice creams that require cooking preparation. However, what drew me to this recipe over the other two that I had long contemplated were the amount and sometimes insane quantity of eggs called for in what would seem like should be simplicity in a strawberry frosty treat.
