Delicious and super easy to make, these Payday Ice Cream Bars by Hannah Kaminsky from her book Super Vegan Scoops are, well, they’re perfect. Sweet, caramel deliciousness. This is my favorite recipe so far, but Hannah’s new book has over 100 recipes that are sweetly creative and unique.
I should tell you who Hannah is, in case you have never looked at vegan books before … she’s written 8 so far! Hannah is the culinary brains behind Bittersweet Blog where she showcases her plant-based creations. I highly recommend taking a look. She has so many tasty recipes there along with some witty and enjoyable writing.
Super Vegan Scoops by Hannah Kaminsky
Hannah’s new book, Super Vegan Scoops, is beautifully done. It’s a hardcover book, for one, which is always nice. It’s full of so many fantastic recipes for plant-based ice creams. And these recipes aren’t just n’ice cream variations (although I do love me some n’ice cream). Hannah’s recipes are simple but definitely more involved than whirring up some frozen bananas. This is real ice cream. Some need to be cooked, cooled, and then processed with an ice cream maker. But don’t worry if you don’t have an ice cream maker, Hannah gives alternatives that don’t require one.
The book is broken down into chapters like Solo Scoops, Sandwiches Sticks and Miscellaneous Novelties, Sundaes Everyday, Celebration Cakes, Meltdown Masterpieces, and Toppers Sauces Sides and Staples. It’s a pretty comprehensive collection of just about every plant-based ice cream-related recipe you could ever want. I plan to try every single one.
Some of the recipes in Super Vegan Scoops include (and check out the lovely names!): Raspberry White Chocolate Frozen Yogurt, Rhubarb Sherbet, Rose Gold Ice Cream, Sake Sherbet, Wild Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream Sandwiches, Strawberry Shortcake Pops, Elvis Banana Split, Fried Cherry Pie Sorbet, Completely Coconuts Ice Cream Cake, and Pear Frangipane Cake.
Payday Ice Cream Bars
Hannah is letting me share my favorite recipe from her book, which is the Payday Ice Cream Bars. This could be my favorite recipe of all time.
I loved Payday candy bars, but they’re not vegan and so haven’t had one in 14 years. This recipe might be even better because, ice cream. It’s still got the yummy salty peanuts but they’re over a caramel-y ice cream base. Pretty much chilled Paydays. Yum.
