Rum Raisin Ice Cream with Almond Chocolate Croquant Recipe

After dropping Aria at preschool the other morning, I had plenty of time once I got home. The ice cream maker had been sitting on out kitchen counter for the entire summer and I decided to use it one last time before it goes back to hibernation, just like a bear. 

I made a simple custard using whole milk and chilled it overnight. I churned the ice cream and finished it with rum soaked raisins. The result was silky and delicious but not too rich. 

I used a chocolate almond croquant as the "delivery device" and garnished the fancy dessert with golden kiwis and red currants.

Here's a refreshing, healthy treat for you to enjoy this summer. We made coconut peach popsicles using peaches from our garden and fresh coconuts. The popsicles are made out of a blend of puréed peaches, diced peaches, coconut milk, fresh coconut water, fresh shredded coconut, freshly squeezed lime juice, honey and vanilla beans.

You can't go wrong with these frozen treats. Plus, they're vegan! Depending on what fruit you have available, be creative and combine the fruits and spices you like.

Vol au Vent Filled with Cherry Ice Cream Recipe

I love the combination of dark Morello cherries and balsamic vinegar. Since I have balsamic cherry vinegar from Bellindora on hand, I thought I would use the pairing in a dish. I made cherry vol au vent drizzled with Bellindora balsamic cherry chocolate sauce. If you've had balsamic syrup with fruits in the past, you will certainly love this uncommon flavoring as the balsamic cherry vinegar brings out the flavor of the sweet cherries. 

The vol au vent consists of a puff pastry cup that is formed using two different sizes of cookie cutters. I filled it with homemade dark Morel ice cream. As you can see from the photo, I should have been more patient and waited for the ice cream to harden a bit in the freezer and not transfer the churned cherry ice cream directly from the ice cream machine to the cooled puff pastry.
