Happy Tuesday Eve morning to you!

Sounds SO much better than the M word amiright?!

Last Monday may have missed the usual recipe postage, but it feels good to be back in the saddle, especially with a long awaited partner in recipe creating crime, my first DSLR camera!

I went with the Canon Rebel T5, since I’ve heard good things, read lots of reviews, and was well in a price range I was willing to pay for my novice DSLR camera skillz.

I have been longing to bite the bullet, and finally cave in and buy one, but could never pull the trigger on that locked and loaded Amazon shopping cart. FINALLY, the time was right, and now I’m a happy gal. The end.

..or the beginning, since I plan on having some new updates and improvements to this little blog of mine, one of which is my first ever E-BOOK! Once everything is in place, I’ll be sending it out to my beloved subscribers, so make sure you’re a subscriber to get the first look!

Phew, all that rambling worked me up an appetite, and for one of two foods I crave in the summer.

Ice to the cream.

Don’t ask me where these crazy ideas come from, but they come to me and I feel compelled to be their messenger. Just call me, The Weird Recipe Medium. Can I get a TV gig now?

Maybe I just wanted a way to eat my beloved sweet potatoes in the summer without sweating orange, but I had the thought to freeze them, blend them, and devour them. Preferably, with peanut butter. πŸ™‚

Now it’s totally possible to simply nix the banana in this recipe, but the texture is a lot more starchy feeling than creamy like ice cream should be. I’m not telling you how to live your life, but use the banana or else.

Also, while not technically necessary, cinnamon, vanilla, and maple syrup just add to the sweet potato experience. I think if I were in a psychedelic hippie band, it would be known as Emily and the Sweet Potato Experience.

With vanilla on drums, cinnamon on bass, and maple syrup on keyboard. Plus, a guest appearance by peanut butter on lead guitar. Rock effin legends.

  1. I’m with everyone else and would not have thought to make ice cream from sweet potatoes but the texture looks great and the flavor sounds unique and tasty.

  2. My husband lives on sweet potatoes! He will love this. I can’t wait to try it either. I’m such a savory food lover. I’ve had cucumber ice cream at a local ice cream parlor and it is by far the best ice cream I’ve ever had. This one might give it a run for the money.

  4. How do you think the taste would be if using an avocado instead? I am so not a fan of bananas… I know, people think it’s weird πŸ™‚

    • Hmm..I’ve never given it a try, but it definitely wouldn’t be as sweet. Maybe try freezing the avocado first, and adding some maple syrup? I can’t vouch for how it would turn out, but if you give it a try definitely let me know how it turns out! I’ll have to give it a try too next time I make it!

  7. As a beginner vegan (4 days) I am so glad I found this I am the only vegan in this house of 7 and i almost cried watching my family eat ice cream without me. I am currently well anxiously awaiting for the ingredients to freeze. You are a life saver.
