I opted to spend the day off with Ashley and had a tentative plan to relax at the house and enjoy the A/C on this hot day. It turned into a day of business from start to finish. It actually felt good to get a lot done.
Ashley recently got into the running for acceptance for a competitive program at her school. We used that as an excuse to celebrate and get some great vegan cake! I also made some strawberry ice cream to go with the cake. If you have an ice cream maker, this is incredibly easy.
Strawberry Ice Cream
1 pound of strawberries
16 oz of coconut milk (high fat)
1 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla
Combine all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. Add the mixture to your ice cream maker and follow ice cream maker instructions.
Use the most high fat content coconut milk you can find. This will give the ice cream a deeper, richer flavor.
There is not much better way to celebrate than with cake an ice cream! We also got several other things done, painting, more cooking, etc.
