Super Food Ice-cream Sprinkles are on Sweet Caramel Sunday!!
Who wants some SUPER FOOD ICE CREAM SPRINKLES!!!! And now that I have your attention…….Happy Friday everyone!!
I wasn’t sure that I was going to get a chance to post a recipe for you guys tonight as I am heading out, but I realised I had just enough time before I did to do just that. So tonight, I have for you…….Super Food Ice Cream Sprinkles!!
Adulting can suck at times and you think back to when you were a kid and life seemed so grand and that anything was possible.
Then you start working full time and paying bills and the perks of adult life seem to out way childhood at times. With this recipe I wanted to recreate some of those fun times from our youth, but do it, in a modern way with a recipe for grown ups.
Reminiscing on childhood
I am sure that you can remember about a million recipes you would have had as a kid that had sprinkles on it. Be it Fairy Floss, ice creams, cakes or donuts, the possibilities seemed endless. Well, why not bring back some of those good times with some Super Food Sprinkles for adults.
Origins of this recipe
If you follow my blog, you will know that I recently posted a recipe for a Super Easy Dark Chocolate Bark, but if you didn’t know that, you can grab that recipe right here. For that I used a combination of shaved coconut, pistachios and goji berries. The texture and crunch of that dish was awesome and I knew that I could use the idea for other desserts as well.
I wanted my Super Food Sprinkles to have colour and bite to them and I think you will be delighted to know that these little rippers do!
Super Food Ice Cream Sprinkles
- 1 cup coconut shaved and dried
- 1/4 cup pistachios
- 1/4 cup goji berries
- vanilla ice cream
- waffle cones
- chocolate sauce
- Place pistachios in a zip lock bag, seal, then use a spoon to smash into smaller pieces
- Place coconut and pistachios into non stick fry plan and toast for 5 mins or until lightly browned
- Add toasted mix to the goji berries and stir to combine
- Scoop vanilla ice cream into waffle cones, top with chocolate sauce and garnish with Super Food Sprinkles
- The coconut and pistachios will burn very quickly, so keep an eye on them and you will be right!
- The sprinkles will keep in a zip lock bag in the fridge for at least a week so you can sprinkle them on all of your desserts!
This recipe is straightforward but with great results and is very versatile for other ideas that might spring to mind also.
Hope you have all had a great week, didn’t it fly by!!
