I’m really excited to bring you this PARVE kosher for Passover treat today! When I made the tester a few weeks ago the boyfriend took one taste and exclaimed “Wow, that is really refreshing!” It’s beautiful, parve, refreshing, kosher for Passover – what more could you ask for! This recipe was so successful I want to try it with different fruit juices as well.
I have also decided to use this soda float as a palate cleanser for Slumdog Pesach this year. Yum!
PARVE VANILLA ICE CREAM RECIPE
2 cans full fat coconut milk (about 4 cups)
1/2 cup honey
2 Tbsp vanilla extract
All of those ingredients up there? – put them in a blender and, well, blend.
Place the combined ingredients in your ice cream maker and follow your ice cream maker’s regular instructions.
When the ingredients have turned into ice cream, place in a bowl or tupperware and leave in the freezer for several hours before using.
You can use this recipe as a base for all kinds of other parve ice cream concoctions too!
Approx 2 cups loose mint leaves (perhaps 30 leaves or so)
1 quart bottle of club soda
Vanilla ice cream
Cut up your half a water melon in chunks (approx 6 cups), and place your mint in there too (approx 2 cups) as shown below. Blend it all up!
Put the juice through a strainer – this will yield approximately 2 cups. Place the juice back in the blender.
Fill the blender to the top with club soda. You may choose to blend this – I chose to stir in order to not lose the carbonation.
Pour the Watermelon Mint Soda over ice cream. I made a float for both myself and my boyfriend, which was just enough to place the remainder of the Watermelon Mint soda back in the original club soda bottle (smart, eh?)
You can put your bottle of Watermelon Mint soda back in the fridge and continue to make yourself these floats all week! One thing to note: the watermelon/mint juice will separate from the club soda, so you will have to stir it before use.
So light and crisp! The only criticism the boyfriend had was that he felt the mint over-powered the watermelon. Perhaps he is right on that, but I just love mint, so I thought it was perfect. Enjoy!
