Cake and Ice Cream

Lunch

Today’s lunch was pretty boring – a salad topped with grilled chicken, with watermelon and a mini soft pretzel on the side.

So instead of sharing more about that with you, I thought I would share something a little sweeter and much more up my alley.

Like last night’s dessert!

I made two recipes that I have been eager to try from two other bloggers:

1. Chocolate Chip Cookies for one from Jenny at Peanut Butter and Jenny
2. Voluminous Vanilla Ice Cream from Kate at Chocolate Covered Katie

I altered both recipes slightly but still ended up with delicious results.

For the cookies, I used whole wheat flour and my batter wasn’t as thick as I would have liked for cookies.

So instead, I used a mini muffin pan and make mini chocolate chip cakes.

Tasty with a very doughy, chewy texture.

Voluminous Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

For the ice cream, I followed Katie’s recipe exactly and added chocolate chips to the finished product.

The ice cream was more “icy” than I prefer so next time (like maybe tonight?!) I plan to add in a frozen banana as well to make it a little creamier. :)

Oh my gosh, that’s gorgeous!!
(Also, try using soem coconut milk–either lite or regular–for a creamier taste)
