On top of a homemade blueberry brownie is my new all-time favorite ice cream – Purely Decadent coconut flavor, coconut milk based, non-dairy, soy-free frozen dessert. It’s one of the flavors that So Delicious (the company that produces said ice cream) had sent me to try out.
It’s got the same creamy, rich and decadent texture as I have come to expect from So Delicious. The color is an amazing bright white making for a beautiful contrast to the brownie.
As for taste, it’s nothing but coconut all the way through, it even has little flakes of coconut. Some of the other flavors have a hint of coconut to them, seeing as they’re made from coconut milk. So the coconut one seems really pure and simple – it’s the epitome of coconut milk ice cream.
I’ve dug up the recipe for the brownies since you all were asking for it. I don’t remember where it came from so I can’t properly credit the recipe. If anyone recognizes it, please let me know.
As I always seem to do, I changed the recipe a bit. I used all white flour since I didn’t have whole wheat flour and I didn’t have cocoa powder and used double chocolate hot chocolate powder instead. It made for a more cake-like brownie (see above photo). I don’t know if it’s because I made the substitutions or not, but that’s how mine came out.
