As a kid growing up in Abu Dhabi, one of my most cherished food memories would have to be the sound of the ice-cream truck driving around our neighborhood. There was something about the jingles coming out of the van that enchanted us like hypnotherapy. Only this time, it was feeding our addiction for ice cream, not getting rid of it.
Never in my life have I tried almond milk until recently, and boy am I glad I finally did! The first kind I tried was the unsweetened store-bought version, which I thought tasted pretty good. At 35 calories per serving and lactose-free, I was extremely pleased. However, one day stores ran out of that particular kind and I got the idea of making my own. Now trust me when I say that once you try homemade almond milk it would be hard to go back to the store-bought one.
“Fried ice cream?! How is that even possible?!” was the first response I got from the kids when I told them I’m making them some deep-fried ice cream.
