I write to you alive and well and with a recipe for a very sweet and sexy treat! But first: If you haven't already checked out Boon Burger Cafe here in 'Peg City, Manitoba, GET ON IT!!!! It's Canada's very first vegetarian burger joint and even those of you who identify as omnivorous will LOVE it! The vegan poutine made with oven baked sesame fries, homemade vegan gravy and Daiya cheese is MIND BLOWING (for real, my mind exploded. It was such a mess on Sherbrook Street that day...). Please go check it out, the staff are so cool and nice and the burgers, phenom!
Speaking of MIND BLOWING (I'm beginning to think I have a problem...), I have a sweet and creamy and sexy, yes SEXY, recipe for you. I believe that the world is made up of two kinds of people: people who hate coconut and people who love coconut. I myself am of the latter persuasion so if you are too, it gives me great pleasure to present you with the following recipe for:
Chocolate Coconut Sorbet
(Honestly, it tastes more like rich creamy ice cream! PLEASE use good vanilla! Get someone to smuggle some back from their Mexican vacation for you!)
2 cans coconut milk
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/3 cup vegan sugar
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut (if you want it smooth, omit. If you love the texture of shredded coconut, put more! I used about a 1/3 cup.)
2 tbsp (about a shot) spiced rum (optional, but YUM)
Whisk all ingredients together really, really, really well in a rectangular plastic container that has a lid. Seal the container and scrape ice crystals every hour or so with a fork until totally frozen. Let the sorbet sit out on the counter for ten minutes before you try to serve it.
I even gave it a sexy background...
Make this sorbet and while it freezes go to Boon Burger for dinner! But bundle up, it's getting chilly out there...
