Olive oil ice-cream, you say?...yuck! But no really, this stuff is great. I found it on pinterest (what else is new?), made some adjustments to the recipe, and loved it. Even Andy loved it and he is normally not so fond of my food experiments.
I would like to make a side note that this recipe is dairy-free and ice-cream-maker-free. I am trying to cut dairy out of my diet because it makes my stomach feel wonky, so this is a great ice-cream substitute. (I still eat regular ice-cream, just not often.) The recipe is also made without an ice-cream maker, so it is very simple. Lastly, the ice-cream is delicate and melts fast, so don't let it sit out for long before eating it.
