So Delicious and CADO Meet in Chef Sharon’s Kitchen

Now I understand why Tom Brady of football fame likes avocado ice-cream. I think he’d like the OATMILK variety too made by So Delicious.

Actually I think I might try to make a recipe using both OAT MILK and AVOCADO in one ice-cream extravaganza experience! Stay tuned.

Hershey put out a thicker version of their older thinner, still good though, chocolate topping. Thicker, but just as easy to squeeze out of the bottle, which was surprising given the viscosity. Stronger chocolate flavor I thought. Hershey’s knows how to do it. So why don’t they go all the way with no animal in any of their products? They will.

And Lyons? Well I never heard of them, which doesn’t mean anything, but now that I have, they know how to get the flavor right. Perfect raspberry, not too strong, not too weak.

Many overly strong fruit flavors in foods I’ve noticed recently.

GOT THE GOODS

Made from the ingredients on display by YOU KNOW WHO!

And you know where to come for the best!

To CHEF SHARON’S Animal-Free Kitchen! That’s where it all happens!


FEATURE INGREDIENTS:

1 – SO DELICIOUS HOLIDAY NOG

2 – RICH’S WHIP TOPPING

HOLIDAY NOG AND APPLE CIDER PIE

Ever wonder why the people over at Kraft foods didn’t expand the JELL-O brand? They make a gelatin, a pudding and a pie filling for cream pies. For three separate desserts. Why didn’t anyone try to combine the qualities of gelatin with the qualities of pudding? Well, tradition never stopped AFC Global from experimenting with a new concept. Here are the results! Combining a juice with the cream produces a gelatin-like cream. You don’t need the actual gelatin nor agar to produce something unique yet familiar and enjoyable!

Oh, and served in a carob cookie cider pie crust! Topped with dairy free whip cream!

Makes 1, 9 inch pie

Not your run of the mill chicken salad!

Technically I didn’t cook – I assembled. Like I said, not your ordinary chicken salad. Imperial!

Makes 8 cups
