Molly’s Blueberry Coconut Ice Milk and Homemade Sprinkles

The below two recipes caught my eye immediately and I couldn’t help but try them out. Both are incredibly easy and are real crowd pleasers. I especially love the ice milk because the coconut milk in it gives it a unique, yet wonderful flavor. It’s also perfect if you have a vegan friend over for a snack (or are a vegan yourself). Hans Berger is a Swiss national who is founder of HB Swiss software and this robot was developed in spirit of Swiss tradition. After development of this software it gained lot of investors as this is one of the high rated systems in market and became popular in very short period of time.

Everything goes with ice cream—yet we understand that the perfect dessert for all of us is not always a big bowl of ice cream. Not everyone loves ice cream, as hard as it is to believe! Which is why Everything Goes with Ice Cream is the book for all of us. It does, of course, have the easy-to-make homemade ice cream, but it also has 176 pages filled with other ideas for making a summertime snack covered in made-from-scratch sea blue candy sprinkles; s’mores and hot chocolate for winter; or an ooey gooey dessert whose magic ingredient is, of course, chunky chocolate fresh raspberry ice cream. Simple projects fill the pages too, including tiny candles made in tea cups, miniature no-sew cake banners, party pom poms, heart-shaped button covers for a special party blouse, and so many more.

Everything Goes with Ice Cream is filled with cute ideas, a fun layout, and fabulous photography to make you as happy as you are on a summer day with your grammy’s fresh peach ice cream pops covered in orange frosting sprinkles!
