Feed The Resistance: Strawberry-Chocolate Ice Cream!

With Valentine’s Day being next Tuesday, Dee wanted Strawberries and Chocolate this morning.  Since I don’t do a good job of following directions – I wanted to do a little more than just dip strawberries in chocolate.  So, I found a recipe for Strawberry Chocolate Ice Cream…or more precisely – Strawberry Chocolate “NICE Cream” (it’s a vegan version of ice cream).  I found the recipe in the most recent issue of Forks Over Knives magazine.  The “NICE Cream” has a base of frozen bananas and frozen strawberries – added to that is just a touch of maple syrup and a dash of salt.  That’s all mixed up in a food processor, and then add some chopped up chunks of chocolate.

Warning: Frozen bananas and frozen strawberries take a long time to process in the food processor.  In the end you want them to be nice and creamy – you can eat it right when you get to that point, and it will be like a soft-serve, or you can put it in the freezer for a few hours and it will become more like ice cream.

To pair with the Strawberry Chocolate Nice Cream, Dee brought in Vintage Brewing Company‘s “Bock’s O-Chocolates” Chocolate Doppelback.  The beer went perfectly with the Nice Cream…and even made for a fantastic Beer Float!
