The Old Ice Cream Man

fullxfull.425484844_7pus

There once was an old ice cream man
who thought he had a brilliant plan.
To increase his money,
he’d also sell honey.
But the kids saw the bees, and ran!

A girl eating ice cream got tricked
by her own sneaky dog named Slick.
When she wasn’t looking,
Sly Slick started licking,
Then all that was left was the stick.

Everybody loves to eat ice cream in the hot weather, but have you ever wondered how you could make plain old ice cream more interesting? I am going to share with you 10 quick and easy ways to do just that. Providing you have the ingredients at hand, none of these ideas should take more than a few minutes to prepare.

01. Nuts About Ice Cream – One of the easiest ways to spice up your ice cream is to buy a bag of your favourite nuts or a bag of mixed nuts if you prefer. Put a little hole in the bag (but not big enough for the nuts to come out) and compress until all the air is removed, then take something hard and smash the nuts up in the bag. Simply sprinkle the broken nuts onto your ice cream and mix them in.

02. Strawberry, Coconut Ice Cream – Something I like to make which is really easy and the kids love, chop up some fresh strawberries and place in a mixer with some vanilla ice cream and then add a bag of coconut flakes. Mix for a few seconds but don’t overdo it. This ice cream is really good inside chocolate eclairs. 

03. Oooh, Saucy Ice Cream – Most people would use some sauces to liven up their ice cream, but the usual chocolate or strawberry sauce can become a bit tedious. I like to use some sauces which are a bit different: apple sauce, lemon sauce, honey or syrup, mocha chocolate sauce, caramel sauce or rhubarb sauce. 

04. Marshmallow, Chocolate and Honey Ice Cream – Take a bag of mini marshmallows and slowly mix them into some vanilla ice cream along with a crushed up bar of chocolate and a few drizzles of honey. Garnish with a sprig of mint. This idea is perfect if you are trying to impress party guests or even your partner.

05. Banana Splits – This is probably one of the easiest things to make but some people never do. Slice a peeled banana in half (lengthways) and place in a dish. Add a few scoops of your favourite ice cream (vanilla is probably my favourite). Squirt a little squirty cream around the banana and ice cream then sprinkle a few broken nuts and drizzle a little strawberry sauce or honey over the top to finish it off.

06. Peanut Butter Jelly Ice Cream – One of Kathy’s favourite things is peanut butter so I made this ice cream for her and she absolutely loved it. Take some vanilla ice cream and add a few spoonfulls of peanut butter and also a few spoonfulls of your favourite jelly, mix gently to combine, but not too much. Serve in a bowl with wafers and sprinkle a few chopped nuts over the top.

07. Apricot Ice Cream – If you are partial to apricots then this one is for you. Take a few dried apricots and chop into tiny pieces and mix into your favourite vanilla ice cream along with some apricot sauce. This is really good when your sat outside on hot, sunny days.

08. Cookies and Ice Cream – Cookies are a really good snack, but cookie dough ice cream is much better. Either make your own chocolate chip cookie dough or use Nestle’s Toll House ready made cookie dough and break it up into pieces and mix with some vanilla ice cream, delicious. You may also want to drizzle a little caramel sauce over the top too.

09. Fresh Mint Ice Cream – This is one of my personal favourites because I love the taste of fresh mint. Take about 6 or 7 sprigs of mint and chop very finely or use a blender (saves time) then mix into your vanilla ice cream. I like to place this back into the freezer for 30 minutes or so to allow the mint flavour to penetrate the ice cream.

10. Rum and Raisin Ice Cream – This is for adults only. Soak a couple of handfulls of raisins in some rum overnight then add the raisins and the remaining rum into your vanilla ice cream and mix until the ice cream turns a light brown colour (add a little more rum if needed). We recommend not driving after this one.

The Mediterranean Food Pyramid: Lifestyle, Not a Diet

I was quite fascinated when I came across the image of the Mediterranean Food Pyramid this weekend. We all wonder what is the secret of the “Southern European” diet that keeps people slim, healthy, happy and living long lives. Notice that the base of the pyramid consists of “active lifestyle” elements: dancing, going for a walk, playing soccer, and enjoying good food together. It is a lifestyle, not a diet. While a lot of us here in the US workout religiously, sweat in the gym, run marathons, and consume the latest superfoods, we are missing out on the most important part of our potential: simple, active, happy lifestyle. No gym required. Enjoying life to its fullest. Savoring delicious foods with family and friends, and not worrying about how many calories our dinner had. Because when you eat home-cooked meals from good, fresh ingredients, none of this matters.

062110-watermelon.jpgWhen the summer temperatures start climbing, we often don’t feel especially hungry. The temperature extremes of the hot blasting outdoors and freezing air conditioned indoors sometimes takes away our appetite. Here, though, are ten good snacks for for when you feel like it’s too hot ot even eat!

1. Chilled Hard Boiled Eggs: They’re small, easy to consume and pack a punch of protein. Add a sprinkle of salt and you’re all set.

2. Smoothies: The ultimate vessel to deliver whatever nutrients you require to last you throughout the day. Although smoothie shops sell you ridiculously large portions, a small 12 ounces is enough to get some serious nutrition without leaving you with a growly stomach.

3. Frozen Grapes: There is a severe cult following for this simple snack, just toss any bunch of grapes straight in the freezer. The end result is something that requires chewing and has a pleasant tang without being a milk-based dessert or snack.

4. Cold Noodle Dishes: It might be Soba or some Buckwheat noodles, but either way you can create sauces with big flavor and deliver them in a crisp, cool manner. Check out more cold noodle dishes here.

5. Ice Cream: Although it might not offer anything nutritionally, it is still the go to snack for many that are staring high temperatures in the face. A cool bowl of almost any flavor is usually more than welcome (even if it’s only breakfast!).

6. Water: Even though you don’t eat water (though we’ve lived in some cities we swore we did), it’s a great way to cool down your insides and put off hunger for a little while longer until you’re ready to consume a real meal instead of snacking.

7. Spicy Foods: Many will tell you that a good and spicy curry (Indian or Thai) is the way to go because it makes you sweat. We’re still not 100% sure of the science behind this method, so if it works for you, awesome, if not, see number 5!

8. Jerky: Although there’s tons of fresh fruit available during the sweltering heat, you might not always want the sugar (even if natural) that comes with it. A nibble ofhomemade jerky is a great alternative, plus gives you some substance unlike some of the other options above.

9. Watermelon: Growing up, Sunday dinner in the summer was 1/4 or 1/2 of a watermelon and a spoon. We’re not sure if it was the cool melon itself that made us feel better or the eating process where we got a fare amount of it on us during the process, but either way, watermelon is slushy and juicy without busting out a blender!

10. Spring Rolls: We have to say up front that any food shaped like a burrito is a winner in our book, but when the summer sun heats up, spring rolls are an easy dish to throw together, especially if you take a few minutes to do the prep work ahead of time. Add your choice of protein and you have a complete meal without adding any heat!
