Mitchell’s Homemade Ice Cream

Hello everyone,

Looking for a place to grab an iced soy latte, vegan-friendly lunch, or perhaps a sweet treat? Check out my updated list of my favorite vegan-friendly places around Northeast Ohio under Vegan Cleveland. Just added—Mitchell’s Homemade Ice Cream.

Mitchell's Homemade Ice CreamAh, summer. A time to relax, spend time with friends, and enjoy ice cream on a hot day. Mitchell’s Homemade Ice Cream serves up summer treats using only the best locally sourced organic ingredients. Plus, they generally have two vegan flavors, currently vegan salted caramel pecan and chocolate. Looking for a fruiter option? Mitchell’s also makes sorbet (lemon, mango, and raspberry) without dairy and it’s fat free!

I highly recommend getting a single scoop of the vegan salted caramel pecan on a sugar cone! The rich coconut milk flavored with homemade toasted pecan butter, caramelized brown sugar and sea salt is delicious! You’ll fool all your dairy loving friends with this sweet treat! Next time you’re in Northeast Ohio be sure to give this local ice cream parlor a try!

Cheers,

Jocelyn

Recipe: Vegan Basil Rhubarb Crisp

Hello everyone,

It’s summer and that means one thing—it’ time to make crisps and crumbles full of unique flavors! I recently visited my local farmers market and was so happy to find rhubarb! Most people mix rhubarb with strawberry, but I like to let the rhubarb flavor shine on its own. I updated my old recipe and perfected a new and improved vegan basil rhubarb crisp.

The basil adds a savory twist which helps tone down the natural acidity from the rhubarb. The result is a sugary, but not too sweet, dessert that pairs perfectly with vegan whipped cream or ice cream. This crisp is sure to please everyone at your next summer potluck, plus it’s so easy to make! It requires only eight ingredients and takes under an hour to complete. Head to your local farmers market and pick up some beautiful red-green stalks today!

Cheers!

Jocelyn

Recipe: Vegan Vanilla “Birthday” Cupcakes

Hello everyone,

I recently blew out the candles for my 30th birthday. Where did the time go?! The weekend was filled with family, friends, lots of laughter, and of course, plenty of good food! When it comes to baking for my loved ones, I go all out with flavor and style. But for me, I like to keep my own birthday treats simple. 

I love a perfectly done vegan vanilla cupcake. The light airy cake, topped with a sweet icing and sprinkles – it can’t be beat! There is something so comforting and special about it. I’ve been making these cupcakes for years, but I recently doubled the amount of time I let the soy milk and apple cider vinegar curdle. I have to say, it made a huge difference! I’ve never had cupcakes so fluffy! 

Give this updated recipe a try and let me know how it works for you!

Cheers & happy eating!

Hello friends,

As you may have noticed from my recent posts, I am trying to burn through an overstock of chocolate chips and crystalized ginger chips. I figure you can make any basic cookie and spice it up by using whatever add-on ingredients can be found in the cupboards. Continue reading “Recipe: Vegan Shortbread Cookies”
