Fried Ice Cream with Pina Colada Cream Sauce…HOT n’ COLD

Yes, I know, it’s hot outside…bring on the ice cream, I say! NO baking today.

I love the ying yang elements in food. Take for instance, the recipe today consists of the opposing elements of COLD, the ice cream, and HOT, the frying.

My first time eating this was at an Asian restaurant. It was made with a sponge cake encasing the ice cream, which was then fried. I was totally impressed…doesn’t take much when the discussion is about dessert…

This is not quite a kid friendly item to make, due to the frying. But, when it comes to eating this, oh, yes, it is very much kid friendly. The coating I used was corn flakes. But, you can substitute using other types of cereal.

Let’s not spend another minute online…let’s make some Fried Ice Cream with Pina Colada Cream Sauce.

I created a Pina Colada Cream Sauce recipe to accompany the Fried Ice Cream. For the kid friendly version, just omit the rum.

SPEAKING OF RUM, where else can you use Bacardi Rum?
Try my eggless eggnog, Coquito. This drink is made during the Christmas holidays in our household. But, of course, you can make this whenever you desire.

Recipe is on my blog, Baking is my Zen.
Coquito ~ Puerto Rican Eggnog

My photo of the Coquito drink was seen on my  flickr account, and requested by Speaking Latino for use in a post they wrote about alcoholic drinks from Puerto Rico. Thanks to Diana and Jared for sharing my photo on your website.

My Coquito photo is number six of the ten drinks listed.
Below is an excerpt from their post describing the drink.

6. CoquitoClosely related to eggnog, coquito is only available during the Christmas season. Egg yolks, cream of coconut or coconut milk, white rum, cinnamon, cloves, vanilla, evaporated and condensed milk are combined to create this sweet drink, most often served chilled.

It is common for people to give this as a gift during the holidays. Pitorro may be used in coquito instead of rum, for a stronger kick.

Stay cool…
