Black sesame ice cream bars because it's starting to get warmer in Montreal! And i want something sweet nutty refreshing and BLACK to eat!
Ok so it's not black. Grey is fine though grey is gorgeous. There should be more naturally grey foods.
So making crusts is always an ordeal for me most of the time i don't have the ingredients to make it. A lot of recipes call for graham crackers or dates while I do have dates i don't have an endless supply and i don't really want to use a whole cup of it (my wallet doesn't always allow it). Was wondering if there was something i could do with oats i always have a TON of steel cut oats on hand.
I looked up recipes for oat-based crusts and found this awesome one by Lauren Goslin from 'oatmeal with a fork'. Her recipe called for olive oil but I swapped it out for coconut oil. Coconut oil suits desserts perfectly :)! Assuming you like the taste of coconut because the flavour is pretty strong.
As for the black sesame ice cream this is actually my 3rd attempt. First one was good made it with silken tofu and coconut milk. Didn't have any silken tofu left for this batch so gave bananas a go and it worked out great! Adds just the right amount of bulk.
Being able to make black sesame ice cream at home makes me happy. Now that Japan is so far away and that kombinis aren't 5 minutes away anymore. AH I miss the convenience of Kombinis.
