Olive Oil Ice Cream | Gluten Free Recipe

olive oil ice cream

Sometimes, simple is best; and that’s more than fine with me! (I get to enjoy my dessert faster, ha!) — Now that I’m in my late 20’s, I’m open to trying new things. I used to be the pickiest eater on the planet, so I’m finally having some fun in the kitchen. It’s no secret that I enjoy the sweeter things in life, and I’m totally guilty of the late-night ice-cream cravings. I always keep a tub in the freezer; it’s my treat for getting through the day! I recently discovered the most simple pairing that changed my ice-cream game — olive oil. (I could seriously bathe in that stuff, I’m addicted). It’s savory, smooth & decadently delicious. I opted for a simple recipe, but I definitely want to try this one next. It’s a great presentation piece: aka Instagram.
