Apple Pie and Almond Ice Cream


Before laying out the milk and cookies for Santa, I think 
it's important to prepare something sweet for yourself too!


But as my Grandpa used to say, "You can't serve pie without ice cream!"


Almond Dream Vanilla Ice Cream


Nutrition Facts


I've tried every non-dairy ice cream; soy, rice, 
coconut, and even hemp, but never almond milk!


Digging into the frozen container


Action shots of the 'scoopage' haha


Nestled beside the warm apple pie


The Deep Dish Apple Pie from Thrifty Foods


Look at those tantalizing sugar crystals!


Jam-packed layers of seductive apples...


And a flaky crust that begs to be eaten


Time to attack this sacchariferous dessert with my fork!


The ice cream makes a wonderful companion to
the pie by cooling the palate and softening the crust



Question: Do you like pie and what's your favourite kind?

I'm drooling this looks so good! I need to try almond milk ice cream, I've only had rice and soy and liked both. My favorite pie is pumpkin

My favourite kind of pie is peach pie. I don't eat pie very often, but when I do I like a very small (sliver) piece.

I used to love apple pie and I should probably bake a gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free version. :P Also, the almond ice looks wonderful!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas friend!

I have never tried any kind of pie that I can think of other than a mince pie, so that would have to be my favourite. Although looking at that apple version, I might have to change my mind.

That almond milk ice cream looks brilliant - much better than soy versions by appearance at least.

Have a very merry xmas!

Ooh yum that pie looks delicious! I love apple pie, but my favourite is pumpkin pie - we had some last night after our turkey dinner! :)

Hope you had a great Christmas!
