This morning I made the Sneaky Chef’s Extra Sneaky Chocolate Breakfast Ice Cream. The texture was perfect, the recipe as written was downright awful. With only 1/2 teaspoon of unsweetened cocoa powder to color an entire 1/4 avocado and a frozen banana, the result looked as if it belonged in a diaper, not an ice cream bowl.
Obviously, this would need a bit of work before he saw it, much less tasted it.
I added a tablespoon of cocoa powder, another pinch of sugar and FINALLY got it “brown” enough to be chocolate ice cream. Then I asked Daniel to taste it and tell me if it was “chocolate enough”. For 20 minutes we went back and forth, adding another teaspoon here and a tablespoon there. The good news is he kept helping me taste it and try to “fix” it so he could have ice cream for breakfast. The bad news is he never said “it tastes good, can I have it in a bowl/cone/whatever”.
Side note: those “soft bite” baby spoons make GREAT “tasting” spoons. He already knows it’s a “baby bite” of something, not a “big boy bite” and is more likely to be cooperative.)
Finally, frustratedly, I gave up and made him a jelly biscuit. The “ice cream” is in the freezer; I’m not sure what to do with it at this point. Maybe add in some vanilla?
