Christmas Time & a repeat recipe (vegan candy cane ice cream)

There are a few things I do no matter what around Christmas time. Even though I am
still not super feeling Christmas this year I am definitely in the mood for my favourite yearly rituals.

Thing one that I always do: watch all of the South Park Christmas episodes. This year it is even more convenient because there is a compilation of all of them on Netflix.

Thing two that I always do: make my favourite ice cream of all time. Candy Cane Ice Cream. Yeah, you can buy it but only if you eat dairy which I don't. So, I make my own! I shared the recipe last year but it is just too good to not mention again and risk that some of you will never try it.
I have already made and demolished one batch this year so I think that I need to make it one more time. My best advice when making Candy Cane Ice Cream is to buy a non-dairy ice cream that you know is delicious and some dark chocolate that you know is delicious. The more delicious all of your ingredients are, the more delicious your finished ice cream will be (duh). Oh and, the longer you leave it in the freezer the better it gets. After a few days the candy cane taste really spreads out and it is amazing.

Have a great day! I get to hang out with Andrea today so I'm excited.


PS. Thank you for the nice comments about Anakin feeling better :)


  1. You are awesome Elycia! Our family does that as well with watching South Park, Always Sunny In Philadelphia, and Futurama. We're even into the whole thing of watching non-traditional movies like American Psycho, American Beauty, God Bless America and The Ref. Just our jist!

  2. Um... I think have to try this... TODAY. Omg it looks so yummy. I love peppermint and chocolate, and mixed with ice cream, I can't see how it isn't amazing. Thanks for the recipe! :)

    As for Christmas time rituals, I love watching those old stop motion/claymation Christmas cartoons. They're just so charming.
