Simple Coconut Brownie Ice Cream

Simple Coconut Brownie Ice Cream | Faith, Hope, Love, and Luck Survive Despite a Whiskered Accomplice

Last week I was approached by a fairly large online company and asked to write a post featuring “healthy” snacks. Healthy. Snacks. Cough. Cough. Did they even read my blog before contacting me? I mean yes, I do use mostly natural ingredients when creating recipes, but calling my recipes “healthy” would be a pretty tremendous stretch even for me. Oh but wait, it gets even better. They wanted me to discuss how these “healthy” snacks of mine could help readers slim down for wedding season. Weddings. Once again, are they freaking crazy? Do they not realize that B.O.B. Bob and I have been together for over 13 years and have yet to have a wedding due to our laziness and unwillingness to place all of our friends in a room together for more than one hour without wanting to shoot ourselves in the head? Clearly these folks have done gone and lost their mind.

I had to say no to this company and their lovely yet strange “healthy” offer. I mean really, how the Hell could I even accept without feeling like the biggest fraud in the world. If I had accepted, today you might be seeing a recipe for granola, seasoned nuts, or low-fat salad dressing dip but certainly not this one for Simple Coconut Brownie Ice Cream. Those recipes still might appear here one day, but if they do it will be because I want them to, not because I’m trying to convince a bunch of brides what they need to eat before their big day. Hell, I say grab a spoon and dig into an overflowing dish of this ice cream. You only live once, and do you really want to start your whole future life madder than a nest of hornets because you’ve been eating only baked kale chips and chia seeds? I know I sure as heck wouldn’t. If you really want to get “healthy,” make this ice cream using Milk Chocolate Coconut Brownies. You can always buy that big ol’ flooffy white dress in a bigger size. I mean really y’all, you only get married once. Cough. Cough.

Suggestions:

  • I recommend using crumbled Milk Chocolate Coconut Brownies in this recipe.
  • You don’t have to use semi-sweet chocolate in this recipe; feel free to use dark, milk, or white chocolate instead.
