I have two must have summertime essentials on my list:
1. A GREAT ice cream recipe. Because there is nothing better than cold, creamy ice cream on a hot summer day.
2. A unique, timeless, and lightweight watch to wear all summer long. Because staying stylish and comfortable is also key during this beautiful time of year.
The Ice Cream Recipe
First, let’s talk about this delicious ice cream recipe.
To say I’m obsessed with ice cream would be an understatement.
It’s hands down my all time favorite dessert. I eat it just about every night for dessert. Ok…every night!
I’m always working to invent fun and unique BUT still healthy and low sugar ice cream recipes to satisfy my sweet tooth.
My newest creation: this honey bourbon coconut milk ice cream with roasted peaches. It’s a rich and creamy coconut milk ice cream with hints of floral sweetness from the honey and a little spice and boozy kick from the bourbon. Then swirled and studded in the creamy goodness are these sweet, caramelized roasted peaches that add a pop of flavor and texture.
It’s a sweet magical treat essential for the summer! A recipe you definitely need to make ASAP!
A Timeless Jord Watch
My second summer time essential: a beautiful, unique Jord watch.
A watch is one of my all time favorite accessories. It’s such just a classic and timeless piece that compliments any outfit.
Jord watches are one of my favorites. They have a stylish, minimal design and are made with beautiful, natural wood detail. I also love that the watch is lightweight and easy to wear, which makes it functional for summertime.
Jord also offers a personalized engraving service, so you can customize your watch with a sweet message or special symbol. And what’s better than a personalized gift?!? Even if it’s a present for yourself 🙂
I’ve been rocking my Walnut and Vintage Rose Cassia Watch all summer. It has an intelligent design paired with classic styling. It’s a vision of versatility, a true wear-anywhere watch that makes it a must have summer time essential.
Here’s the exciting news….Jord Watches and I are teaming up to give one of my readers $100 to use on Jord’s website, plus FREE SIZING and FREE SHIPPING! As a bonus, everyone who enters will receive a consolation code worth 10% off once the contest is over!
This is your chance to add a great summer time essential to your collection!
So you are all set. A delicious ice cream in hand and an amazing, sleek watch. Only thing left to do is go and enjoy this beautiful summer!
Well, and finish your ice cream 🙂
Honey Bourbon Coconut Milk Ice Cream with Roasted Peaches
Honey Bourbon Ice Cream
- 2 can full fat coconut milk
- 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
- 1/3 cup honey
- 2 tablespoons good quality bourbon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 peaches cut in half
- ½ tablespoon olive oil
- Dash cinnamon
- Drizzle of honey
- Pinch of sea salt
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Drizzle cut peaches with olive oil, cinnamon, and honey. Roast for 25-30 minutes, or until tops of peaches caramelize and the peaches soften. Allow to come to room temperature. Cut the peaches into chunks. Store in fridge until ready to add to ice cream.
In a blender, combine all of the ice cream ingredients and blend until smooth. Set mixture in fridge for at least an hour so the mixture will become cold. Add mixture to prepared ice cream machine and make ice cream according to the machine's instructions.
Fold peaches into ice cream.
Can eat immediately (it will be a soft style ice cream consistency)
If prefer a firmer ice cream or storing extras, pour ice cream into a bread pan and allow to freeze for at least six hours to overnight.
When ready to serve, allow the frozen ice cream to thaw for at least ten minutes before serving scooping.
Scoop desired amount of ice cream into bowl or on a cone and enjoy!!
Ohhhhhh…another great summer must have is a great iced coffee recipe…like these lavender honey cold brew lattes! Now you are officially set for summer!
