Black Sesame Coconut Ice Cream

Recipe

Black Sesame Coconut Ice Cream, vegan ice cream | Nutrition Stripped

Meet the soon-to-be famous (I have hunch), Black Sesame Coconut Ice Cream. An incredibly creamy and dairy-free version of a traditional black sesame ice cream. I was watching the “Chef’s Table” a couple weeks ago, if you all haven’t watched it (on Netflix) you’re missing out! It’s an incredible series sharing the stories of a couple captivating chefs, one of them being chef Niki Nakayama of n/naka restaurant in LA. It got me thinking about asian cuisine and how I haven’t made a version of something I used to LOVE getting every time our family went out to eat, coconut ice cream. Except this time, I’m incorporating an ingredient that I’ve been experimenting with the past year, black sesame paste to make an epic twist on black sesame ice cream. I transform this traditional recipe typically made with egg yolks, heavy cream, refined sugar, and of course black sesame paste and make it dairy-free utilizing less than 5 ingredients like coconut milk, maple syrup, spirulina, and fresh vanilla bean.

Campfire Banana Boats

Recipe

Campfire Banana Boats, healthy recipe | Nutrition Stripped

THIS. This recipe is something I used to make almost every summer night when I was a kid. Those nights where all of the neighborhood kids would gather around after playing “jailbreak” or a heavy game of tag with flashlights running around for hours! We’d be famished afterwards and aching to sit down around the fire pits with our parents while they were all enjoying drinks and gossip- we were all about these desserts and refueling. To be honest, we used to beg our parents to make “foil bananas” which were peeled bananas sliced and stuffed with chocolate chips, coconut, and chopped peanuts wrapped in foil and put on the grill or open flames. Campfire Banana Boats are my grown up version of this classic summer treat.

Summer Tomato Cherry Clafoutis

RECIPE

SUMMER TOMATO CHERRY CLAFOUTIS | NUTRITION STRIPPED

I’ve been fairly lucky with growing tomatoes here in Nashville the past several years…knock on wood. Notice the word luck, as much as I’d love to say that I’m a green thumb, it’s not the case but it’s something I’m determined to learn! Nonetheless, with my gardening luck, I’ve been able to grow some amazing tomatoes during the late spring-summer, so much so that I find myself running out of ways to use them all before going bad. So in an attempt to utilize tomatoes in a very unique way, I’m marrying two red gems of summer, tart cherries with sweet tomatoes in an epic “lazy” sweet and savory clafoutis. Oh, and it’s topped with a Thyme Coconut Drizzle that’s kind of out of this world.
