Sooooo… I’ve got something really naughty to share with you today. Hope you don’t mind. I’m serving up Sweet Lime Fried Ice Cream Bowls with Coconut Ice Cream and Grilled Pineapple, to ensure we end the summer with a little excitement.
I’ve posted healthy recipes here on A Spicy Perspective.
Lots and lots of healthy recipes.
So I’m not going to allow myself to feel one stitch of guilt over serving up deep fried ice cream bowls coated in tangy-sweet lime sugar.
We need to live a little, you know?
I mean what could possibly satisfy a sweet tooth better than creamy tropical ice cream, topped with sweet fresh fruit, served in a bubbly crunchy sugared bowl?
I can’t think of a single thing…
This concept started back in June when I visited my friends at Old El Paso in Austin, Texas. We had a cooking challenge one night, and on a whim I took Old El Paso Stand ‘n Stuff Tortillas and deep fried them to hold ice cream.
Now I don’t deep fry very often, but this was one of those situations when a little hot oil made all the difference.
Old El Paso Stand ‘n Stuff Tortillas are tasty and practical for all sorts of tacos and savory dishes, but who knew they were so fabulous in dessert?!
Just look at that crispy goodness coated in fresh lime sugar.
The limey sugar gives the fried ice cream bowls a tropical quality, so they are perfect to serve with your favorite tropical ice cream… Mine is coconut.
But of course you could substitute cinnamon for the lime zest to make cinnamon-sugar fried ice cream bowls.
Or you could get really crazy and make a cayenne sugar to spice things up!
Top the fried ice cream bowls with sweet grilled pineapple and you have a treat that tastes like it could be served in paradise.
