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.






Fruit And Nut Crumble

FRUIT AND NUT CRUMBLE

You’ll find lots of uses for this fruit and nut crumble over the holidays and through the year. It’s a nutrient dense addition to just about any dish. Another great topper to enhance soup, salad, sandwich, hot cereal or toss with pasta, top the rice or gravy, or mix into your animal-free baked beans! And yes there’s more; it makes an elegant dessert mousse, chilled or frozen!

Makes 4 cups

So Delicious Coconut Culinary Cream

Finally a creamer we can use for savory dishes in addition to desserts.

The ORIGINAL style textures like thick whipped cream when chilled.

The LITE version textures like thick cream when chilled.

I enjoyed working with this product, especially since FARM RICH non-dairy creamer once used for soups and sauces was taken off the market.

The containers however are quite small, probably enough for one recipe. Quart size would be more economical and the home chef wouldn’t have to run to a specialty market every time they wanted to use this culinary cream.

Here are a few recipes I developed using this product:

BAKED APPLES STUFFED WITH FROZEN CUSTARD 

ASIAN PINEAPPLE SNOWBALL

ASIAN STYLE CELEBRATION ROAST

AFC Asian Pineapple Snowball – GOAT

AFC ASIAN PINEAPPLE SNOWBALL – GOAT

A creamy Asian-Style Pineapple Mousse frosted with an Asian cream. Sprinkled with black and white sesame seeds and sliced scallion rings. Served with sesame crackers. If you want to impress your Asian guests, this will do it! Lots of Asians are lactose intolerant, but they still like creamy. Again, this will impress!

Serves a crowd

SO DELICIOUS DAIRY FREE MINIS

Mini ice-cream sandwiches. Made from coconut milk.

Similar to Tofutti Cuties. A little firmer, and they don’t melt too quickly. You can taste a hint of coconut along with the banana split flavoring. Great snack!






 

SO DELICIOUS HOLIDAY FLAVORS COCONUT MILK

SO DELICIOS PUMPKIN SPICE COCONUT MILK - Edited

Wow. I was happy with the Pumpkin Spice flavor, didn’t think I’d get a Mint Chocolate flavor in the same year! Out of the park!






SO DELICIOUS HAZELNUT COCONUT MILK CREAMER

SO DELICIOUS HAZELNUT COCONUT MILK CREAMER

When they say ‘so delicious’ they mean it. I can drink this right out of the carton like a milk shake.

SO DELICIOUS CULTURED COCONUT MILK – PASSIONATE MANGO

SO DELICIOUS COCONUT MILK YOGURT MANGO

Yogurt and fruit mixed. Thin, but then sometimes I like my dessert puddings thin too, so I enjoyed. I still don’t know why all yogurt makers fill the cups about one half inch from the top. Every time I open one it looks like somebody has already taken a couple spoonfuls!
