Ice-Cream, HEAB Style

by HEAB on September 15, 2009

Hello my almond butter loving friends. If you're new to HEAB, you may like to subscribe to my RSS feed or receive my posts via email. Thanks for reading!

First off, I tried a new yoga class yesterday.  It took place in the coolest little studio behind someone’s house in one of my favorite neighborhoods in Nashville.  Think huge old foursquare homes along a wide tree-lined street mixed in with quaint little stores and coffee shops.  (Belmont Blvd. for any local readers) Beautiful.  Anyway, it was Kundalini style yoga, and my arms are super sore today. Unlike any other yoga I’ve tried. Good stuff.

Look what was waiting on our doorstep when we got back from our Labor Day travels:

Our first ice-cream maker!!!!

Scott and I did a little exchange.  Since he and his wife no longer use their ice-cream maker, I offered to take it off their hands in exchange for a batch of Oaties. They were also kind enough to send us some Cafe Brioso coffee, some of the best decaf I’ve ever brewed. Thanks again Scott!

After freezing the ice-cream container, I couldn’t wait to whip up our first batch of homemade ice-cream.  Can you guess the secret ingredient?

OMG butternut ice cream?! That’s just screaming for a browned butter sauce… dairy free of course! An ice-cream maker is something I’ve never purchased because, honestly, I think it would be dangerous!

you’re so creative, and the ice cream sounds amazing!

what a fun swap :)

That ice cream sounds incredible! Oh how much damage I could do with my own machine, lol. my guess for the secret flavor would have been avocado

My secret guess was also avocado! Vanilla avocado ice cream. Possible yum.

That’s such a brilliant idea! Butternut can be made sweet and savory so I think it’s perfect. Mail me some?? :)

Yum sounds great! An ice cream maker would be dangerous in my apt :)

Butternut Squash Ice Cream?! You. are. a. genius!

I want some butternut squash ice cream!! YUMMM!!!

Oh man, that is awesome! I just got an ice cream maker too … but mine is a much cheaper version. Once I can prove my ice cream prowess, my husband said we can upgrade :)

I love the butternut idea, I was just thinking of making pumpkin pie ice cream – far less creative!

Reigne September 15, 2009 at 3:35 pm

I agree with the others. Heather = genius.

I have recently started a blog of my own. Do you have any tips?

Homemade pumpkin ice cream is the BEST this time of year.Of course mine would involve sugar and heavy cream. Let’s see you work magic and make a healthy dairy-free version! I just may have to go home and make some of my own…

Butternut ice cream?! Incredible! I SO wish I had an ice cream maker just for that. Yum yum YUM. Perfect fall flavour.

Steph September 15, 2009 at 9:25 pm

butternut ice cream sounds like a perfect autumn food. actually, squash in anything is pretty much amazing in my book :) looks like you’ll be having fun with your new ice cream maker.

JHunt September 16, 2009 at 7:21 am

OMG that looks incredible! Do you like the ice cream maker? I have been debating getting one or getting the attachment for my Kitchen Aid mixer. Can’t wait to see your creations! Love this blog, esp the name! :)

It’s worth mentioning again that this was not a fair swap…those oaties were WAY better than the ice cream maker! (~:

Enjoy! Can’t wait to see what your next creation is!

CaSaundra September 17, 2009 at 7:22 am

I love,love, loooove my ice cream maker! I bet you’ll enjoy yours too!
