Manuka Sunbutter Ice Cream

This Manuka Sunbutter Ice Cream has only 5 ingredients, is dairy free, and doesn’t require an ice cream maker! If you’ve ever been a fan of the peanut butter and honey combo, this one is for you!

Ingredients:

27 Fluid Ounces Unsweetened Coconut Milk

2/3 Cup Sunbutter

1/2 Cup Manuka Honey (I used Taylor Pass Honey Co)

3 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract

1/4 Teaspoon Sea Salt

Directions:

Place an empty freezer-safe pan into the freezer to chill for a couple of hours before preparation

Add all of the ingredients, starting with the coconut milk, into a large food processor

Blend on a low setting for about 3 minutes

Pour the mixture into the chilled pan and return it uncovered to the freezer for 45 min

Once the edges begin to freeze, remove it from the freezer and whisk until smooth

Return it to the freezer for 50 min, remove, and whisk again

Return it to the freezer for another 50 min, remove, and beat with a hand mixer on a low-medium setting

Return it to the freezer for a final 50 min, remove, and beat again with the hand mixer

It can be immediately served as soft serve, or be left sealed to harden further in the freezer to reach a firmer texture if desired

Serve as is, with drizzles of Sunbutter and Manuka, or with your favorite toppings

Enjoy!

Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts

If you’ve never been a Brussels sprouts fan, these will convert you!  When they’re crispy, crunchy, and salty it’s very hard not to eat the whole batch at once.  They’re such a versatile side dish, and so easy to whip up when you’re short on time.  They’re also always a crowd pleaser at holiday gatherings, and taste best when they’re fresh from the oven!

Ingredients:

Brussels Sprouts

Extra Virgin Olive Oil (roughly 2 tablespoons per 16 ounces of spouts)

Sea Salt

Black Pepper

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400°

Cut the bottoms/tips off of the sprouts and peel off the outer layer

Cut each sprout in half (smaller ones can be left whole)

Toss in a bowl with extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, and black pepper

Spread evenly on a baking sheet

Cook for about 35 minutes (stirring/flipping halfway) or until the outside is brown and crispy

Add additional sea salt and black pepper if needed after taste testing

Enjoy!
