It’s balls hot here in Denver. Most of the state is on fire at this point. It’s horrifying and so incredibly sad. But so is everything else in the world right now so we might as well find a little shining light in the dark. And that shining light should ALWAYS be ice cream. No better way to bring a little extra brightness into your day than sitting on your back patio while you scoop away at this delightful treat! But if you’re in Colorado, maybe eat your ice cream inside. The air quality is dog shit these days. If you like cheesecake, you’ll LOVE this ice cream. If you don’t like cheesecake (serial killer), you’ll LOVE this ice cream. It works for really anyone, even serial killers.

Since I’ve been exploring different food on the blog lately, ie beans and gluten free flours, I thought today I would give you some extra options for this ice cream so you can make it whatever way works best for you.

  1. If you do fine with dairy, use organic heavy cream instead of coconut milk!
  2. If you do fine with dairy still, use organic dairy cream cheese instead of almond milk cream cheese!
  3. If you have an ice cream maker at home, use that to churn the ice cream instead of going straight to freezing it.
  4. If you do fine with gluten, you should still use gluten free graham crackers because they are just so damn good. Skip the gluten on this one.

I’m here to give you options and make your life a little brighter, whatever route you may take. Dairy or dairy-free, ice cream maker or no ice cream maker, gluten free graham crack or….nope. Don’t do it. It’s not worth it. Stay the route.

Whatever you decide to do, just make this ice cream. I’m not even a huge ice cream fan (I must be a serial killer, too), but this was one of those treats that I didn’t want to put down. I licked the spoon and ice cream scoop about 57 times while I shot these photos…at 9am. Then no one in the house wanted ice cream…because it was 9am…so it went back into the freezer for another day or time. But surprisingly enough, I think my husband is a bit over the desserts around here. I’ve been baking up a storm since I’ve been filming so many Reels for instagram, which means we now have blueberry ice cream, peach crisp, blackout cookies, black bean brownies, and s’mores cookies all in one fridge. I would give them to friends because we all fear each other at this point and trust no one, so that’s kind of out of the question. Are we even allowed to donate food these days? Life is so damn weird. I think I’m just going to go listen to one of my true crime podcasts about serial killers during the 1970’s, a much simpler time than 2020.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

  3. This turned out great!! Loved the extra creaminess from the cream cheese. My grocery store was out of GF graham crackers so I made this with GF gingersnaps, so good! Thanks Juli : )
