Last night I had one of those you never know how drunk you are until you stand up moments. Three glasses of pricy chardonnay will do that to you. I had to walk home from an after-work happy hour gathering all tipsy off wine. I’m a light weight because I rarely drink. But last days of work before having a month off call for indulgences. So I paid the price. Luckily I live a block away from the bar. So I walked home and puked up my $12 (x3) wine. It was glorious. No. Just kidding. It was gross. Lesson learned.
Anyways….here is a recipe for some coconut vanilla bean popsicles. I received a tube of vanilla bean pods from Beanilla when I went to Blend Retreat back in May.
Somehow it ended up getting shoved into the back of my cupboard. I found it the other day when I was reorganizing and knew I needed to do something with it. My original plan was to make this vanilla bean ice cream recipe. I thought I did everything correctly but it came out all icy. I think it’s because I used the low fat coconut milk from Trader Joe’s. Love that stuff! But it doesn’t make for very good ice cream. So I thawed the ice chunk out and poured it into some popsicle molds that I bought off Amazon (highly recommended).
It turns out that this was a great idea because the thawed out failed ice cream made for some really good popsicles. And they were really easy to make too.
