Dairy-Free Almond Joy Ice Cream Sundae (V, DF, Paleo): the perfect frozen, allergy-friendly treat to satisfy your Almond Joy cravings and cool you down this summer! Vegan Dairy-Free, Paleo, Gluten-Free.
So… how was your weekend?? Did you celebrate the Fourth of July? Did you have all the fun and then some? 🙂
Tell me there was at least some ice cream, if not ice cream bars, or some popsicles and at least four milkshakes. Okay, fine… it’s not all about food. Riiiiight? 😉 Did you get a chance to relax, unwind and just chill?
As for me and Erik, it was all about family time, relaxation and just… time away from all of our electronic devices. You totally just heard me happy sigh, right? 😉 We did so many fun things these past few days… but mostly, we just slowed down. And it was incredible.
We had plans to go bicycling along the Charles River, but we kinda just scrapped it to take care of our new home. You know we moved into our apartment two months ago, but we’re still unpacking and figuring out just the right spot for our things.
Lately, we’ve been watching all of these DIY videos on Youtube, and getting ourselves all worked up about customizing our home. Yep, customizing our home. 😉 Have you seen some of the insanely creative things people do on YT? And don’t even get me started on tiny homes… Like, now Erik and I’ve been looking at everything in our apartment and going, wait, there should definitely be like 4 storage cubbies hidden behind there, and at least three hidden elevator beds dispersed throughout the place.
Anywho, we also went on a picnic with the Boston fam: Grams, PB (turning 4 sooon!!!!) and Jams (my sister Jenny). And boy can they eat!! J/k. Sometimes I think we all might qualify as competitive eaters, then while I’m thinking about that, I see something else I’d like to eat and completely forget what I was thinking. Thank goodness we walk so much. Lol.
It was nice just sitting, spreading out a blanket, laying out all of our sweet and savory goodies, enjoying each other’s company and just… relaxing. As a family. 🙂 The night before, I whipped up a batch of the ice cream base for this Dairy-Free Almond Joy Ice Cream Sundae, froze it overnight, and it was just perfectly thawed by the time we got to our picnic spot.
Since the weather was so warm, the magic shell actually kept liquidy, can you believe?? We also thought about making some of this tasty looking Sugar-Free Low Carb Ice Cream Recipe from Wholesome Yum! To veganize it, I was going to use dairy-free butter. Okay, fine, I totally have ALL the ice cream on my brain right now! I was also going to try making a vegan version of this yummy Gluten Free No Churn Cookies and Cream Ice Cream from My Gluten-Free Miami. 😍
Other than that, we cleaned up the apartment a bit (the non-fun, non-DIY part), slept in (yes, it was just wonderful) and did a little retail therapy. How about you? I truly hope you got a chance to dial back and enjoy some quality times with the ones you love.
