When I made my Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream I thought that the creamy pumpkin would pair well with some dark chocolate. I thought back to the old days when I would top my ice cream with “magic shell,” but now that isn’t an option since it’s full of sugar and other unnecessary ingredients. The good news about the homemade recipe is that it’s so easy to make and only requires two ingredients! Pour it over your ice cream and it instantly hardens and forms a shell. The perfect addition to your ice cream!
Let’s face it…we’re all busy. Making good decisions in regards to our diets can often be clouded by the fact that our time is limited. Every Friday I will share with you a recipe or technique that uses 5 Ingredients or fewer. The idea is to show you recipes that are easy to prepare and versatile for all of us that don’t have time to whip up a complicated meal during the week.
The recipes will include 5 ingredients or fewer, but there are a few ingredients that are considered “free” ingredients that you probably use every day and are already in your kitchen. The “free” items are water, salt, black pepper, and cooking oil. These items may be used in recipes and won’t count toward the ingredient total. I will also include some optional items that would be great to add if you have them on hand but you don’t need to make a special trip to the store if you’re all out.
