3-ingredient easy mango sorbet recipe

In a world of sugary land of desserts, one sweet treat brings all the flavor without the guilt. Sorbet is often served at higher-end restaurants or even as a palate cleanser between courses, but you need not go to a fancy restaurant or shell out $6 a pint for the store-bought stuff. Make it right at home. This 3-ingredient recipe is perfect for people wanting to eliminate processed sugars or dairy from their diet, while still looking to indulge with friends and family. But don’t get sorbet confused with sherbet. Sorbet (pronounced sor-bay) is typically made from two ingredients — fruit and sugar. Due to the lack or milk, it has a slightly icy texture and needs to sit a bit at room temperature before eating. Sherbet is also made from fruit and sugar, but according the the FDA, sherbet must contain between one and two perfect milkfat. (For reference, ice cream must…

America’s Favorite Ice Cream Flavor Revealed

The results are in, and vanilla reigns supreme as America’s favorite ice cream flavor. In celebration of National Ice Cream Month, which runs throughout the month of July, the International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA) conducted a survey to find the most loved flavors from coast to coast. The IDFA tabulated the top sellers from major ice cream manufacturers in the United States including Blue Bell, Unilever, Nestle, and members of the National Ice Cream Retailers Association, which likely includes your local mom and pop ice cream shop.

Global vanilla shortage will see pastry, ice cream prices soar

The world-wide vanilla shortage is coming to an ice cream cone near you. Pastry chefs and ice cream makers alike are looking to cut back overall consumption due to the rising cost of fair-trade vanilla, meaning that the recipes of our favorite summer sweets could be effected. And we have no one but ourselves to blame. The high demand from consumers, in recent years, switching to all-natural foods has caused the shortage. The problem was then compounded by major corporations like Nestle and Hershey’s that, in response to consumer demand, declared they were then switching from cheaper, chemically created synthetic versions of vanilla to all-natural varieties, too — meaning that they want vanilla from orchid seeds, and not factories. Factories can crank out the synthetic stuff around the clock, but there just aren’t enough vanilla pods in the world to meet demand. A few years ago, a 1-gallon bottle of organic, fair-trade vanilla would cost about $64 — today,…

Cornell to make Joe Biden themed ice cream

From the time former Vice President Joe Biden stepped into office, he was honest about his one true love — ice cream. He publicly proclaimed his passion for the frozen treat by saying, “My name is Joe Biden and I love ice cream,” and then again, in a YouTube video with the Penny Ice Creamery in Santa Cruz, Calif., stating, “I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. But I eat a lot of ice cream.” His love has lead to a Tumblr dedicated to displaying photos of Biden and ice cream, countless internet memes, and even Biden sharing the sweet treat with Jimmy Fallon. via GIPHY And it’s this inspired love story that will have him receive the ultimate in ice cream honors — a flavor bearing his name. The ex-veep was tapped by Cornell University to be the convocation speaker on May 27. The Cornell Dairy, is going above and beyond to thank their campus guest by paying a lasting…

Ben & Jerry’s Shows Love for Bob Marley with “One Love”

As iconic as Bob Marley was in the world of music, he became even more of an inspiration for promoting peace and unity around the world — and next, apparently, ice cream. Ben & Jerry announced a new flavor called “One Love” that pays homage to the legendary performer’s vision for the world. The new pints are filled with banana ice cream, caramel and cookie swirls and chocolatey peace signs. A portion of the proceeds from each pint will be donated to Jamaica’s One Love Youth Camp, an organization run by The Bob Marley Foundation and Partners for Youth Empowerment. The ice cream company is no newcomer to promoting social causes. Other flavors with a cause include “Empower Mint” for democracy, “Phish Food” for clean waterways, and “One Sweet World” for more inclusive communities. “One Love” was released last year in the U.K. and was successful enough to get the green light to head to the U.S. in time for summer…

Soft serve goes goth

White, pink, beige, green, yellow — all legitimate colors for scoops of ice cream atop a crispy cone. If you think about the cool, creamy, classic summer dessert staple, really any color comes to mind except for maybe, well, black. First spotted in the U.S. as a coconut ash flavor last summer at New York City’s Morgenstern’s, rich black sesame ice cream has actually existed in Japan for years. Squid ink ice cream can be found overseas, as well, but Los Angeles’ Little Damage Ice Cream Shop’s almond-charcoal creation is the only black ice cream that also comes in a gothic black cone, adding infinitely to its coolness factor. Charcoal has been popping up recently in other trends, as well. It came to the pressed juice scene with claims that it had detoxifying properties, and has also been added to mud masks and other beauty products, like face masks and pore strips, with claims of similar benefits. The charcoal…
