I hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day! I know I did! And it even ended on a wonderful note. *points to the photos above* Yesterday while at the Galleria Whole Foods in St. Louis I spotted some of the So Delicious Almond Milk Ice Creams. FINALLY! I’ve been dying to try the Cookies ‘N Cream. Yesterday must have been my lucky day because there were a few left. Do you remember when I said the Butter Pecan was my favorite? I’m going to have to change that. The Cookies ‘N Cream is BY FAR the best of them all. Even my non-vegan husband thought so. And he’s a man who loves his cookies and cream ice cream. It’s one of his favorites. He said he couldn’t even tell it was vegan. So I did what anyone would have done. I hid the ice cream in back of the freezer. I mean… I only bought ONE carton!
After dinner tonight I ended up whipping up a banana split. It’s been forever and a day since I’ve had one. I know that typically banana splits are made with vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry ice cream. I thought the Cookies ‘N Cream would be even better. And it was. I took a small banana and split it in half lengthwise and placed it in my ice cream dish. Then I topped it off with a few smallish scoops of So Delicious Cookies ‘N Cream Almond Milk Ice Cream, some crushed pineapple, homemade whipped coconut cream, chocolate sauce, walnuts, sprinkles, and of course a cherry. It was the best thing in the world. Happy Mother’s Day to me! And to all of the awesome mothers out there! Make yourself one of these banana splits. You deserve it!
