Week Five- Alternative Ingredients Week: Sugar Free Ice Cream

Today at the coffee shop, Andy said he finally saw my cat.

Me: Where?

Andy: Your blog

Me: Oh yeah. I forgot I had one.


Whoops. Sorry gang. Here we go.


I got this idea from the fifth episode of the sixth season of Bake Off. I had bookmarked a sugar free site before, and I went back to troll through those recipes. Because the bakers had to make dairy free ice cream with coconut milk, decided to make sugar free coconut vanilla ice cream.


Would you like to guess how well it turned out?



It didn’t.



I don’t know what the issue was. If it was because I had to use a blender instead of a food processor; or because I only used one can of coconut milk; or because I used vanilla extract instead of vanilla bean.



It smelled weird, too.

J is for Jennifer’s Pharmacy

Jennifer’s Pharmacy is a soda shoppe/pharmacy in Clayton.

There’s a gift shop in front, a pharmacy in back, and the soda fountain right in the middle. With an actual counter that you sit at. (no tables)

I used to go with my mom when she was on her lunch break, and she’d always buy me a cute nick knack and a chocolate shake. (thanks, Mom!)

Now I got with Kelly because she lives near by.

It’s a cute little place, and you should check it out when you’re in the area. The food is excellent and the staff is friendly and helpful.

I is for Ice Cream

God I love the stuff.

I think of all my sweet tooth cravings, ice cream is number one.

My tastes have changed over the years: chocolate; chocolate chip; mint chocolate chip; Ben and Jerry’s New York Super Fudge Chunk; Americone Dream; Half Baked; Karamel Sutra.


I keep telling Richie that I want an ice cream maker, but he says that since we’ve found a recipe to make ice cream without a maker, we don’t need one.

Remember boys and girls: the Wicked Witch can be bribed with ice cream.
