Blackstrap Molasses Praline Ice Cream

Key Lime Ice Cream
4 key limes
3/4c key lime juice
1/2c heavy cream
1 1/2c half and half
Zest the 4 key limes directly into a blender. Add the sugar, and blend until well incorporated. Add the key lime juice, then the cream, then the half and half, running the blender between each ingredient. Churn in your ice cream freezer. Super easy!
Sad Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream
Sometimes the excitement of making new ice cream gets a little away from me.
Friends of ours were having a Halloween party, and so I thought I’d try a Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream. Some of said friends do not do dairy, so I thought I’d try it with soy milk. I rushed, trying to make enough for a whole party. Rushing is a bad plan.
I think my butt was saved by the quality of the spices from our local spice shop. It had a decent, spicy flavor, but not enough pumpkin, and the soy milk made it very icy. I don’t think I’ll ever use soy milk again as a significant part of ice cream- enough to help blend ingredients would be okay, but not as a whole ice cream base.
And… the picture. I had visions of a cute little Jack O’Lantern face. This looks more like something Mario tries to squish. I kinda like it anyway.
