I’m happy to report that I completed everything on my to do list, except for the photography stroll I had planned for the afternoon. I have a good excuse though. The minute I walked outside with camera in hand, it started snowing. Snow + Kevin’s DSLR = Leanne in a lot of trouble if something bad happens. So, I went inside and made mac n’ cheese. :D Kevin came home a couple hours later with a hunger in his belly that could only be cured by a cool treat [or so he claimed!]. hmm… cool treat… Popsicles? “Milk” shake? Carob cluster? [I had one left, so I was hoping he wasn’t going to want a cluster, but I had to mention it] Ice cream? His face lit up at those two magical words. Ice cream it was. Best part? You don’t need an ice cream maker to get the job done, it’s vegan, and it’s less than $1.50/serving! woot! I love ice cream but hate all the junk ingredients in the conventional stuff:
Butyraldehyde [nut flavor aka the main ingredient in rubber cement], Diethylglycol [a chemical used instead of egg yolks], Ethyl Acetate [pineapple flavor aka leather cleaner], Piperonal [vanilla flavor aka used to kill lice] , Aldehydec-17 [cherry flavor aka dye used in the manufacturing of rubber], Amylacetate [banana flavor aka an oil pain solvent]Not to mention:
Corn syrup, Milk solids, Glucose/Fructose, Whey, Gums, PolysorbateThere are some great organic or coconut based ice creams out there, I just can’t justify spending $9 for <16oz. I’ll stick to my homemade, affordable, and healthy-as-can-be ice cream, thanks!
