Fudgy ice cream bars

Fudgy ice cream bars

Fran (@fransfoodstories) made us a delicious after dinner treat. What is better than a fudgy gooey ice cream bar, with soft oaty flapjack, ice cream and a topping of chocolate fudge... 

Ingredients: Serves 10

For the Base:

  • 100g Oats
  • 150g Dates
  • 1 Tbsp Melted Coconut Oil
  • Pinch of Salt

For the Middle:

  • 1/3 Tub of Chocolate Hazelnut Ice Cream
  • 30g Chopped Hazelnuts
  • 1/3 Tub Salted Caramel
  • 40g Frozen Raspberries

For the Top:

  • 5 tbsp Cacao Powder
  • 3 Tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 2 Tbsp Coconut Oil

Method:

  1. Soak the dates in boiling water for about 10 mins.
  2. Once soaked, place all the base ingredients in a food processor with 2 tbsp of water from the soaked the dates and pules until combined and dough-like.
  3. Press the base into a lined baking tray, so that it is about 1cm thick and place in the freezer to firm up.
  4. Scoop out the right amount of ice cream from the tub leave to melt slightly (in separate bowls – we are making two flavours)
  5. Add the chopped hazelnuts to the chocolate ice cream and stir together. Add the raspberries to the salted caramel ice cream and stir together.
  6. Once the ice cream has melted enough to make it spreadable – not too much that it is completely liquid though – spread on the base with the salted caramel on one side and the chocolate on the other – don’t mix them!
  7. Place in the freezer to harden for about 1 hour.
  8. To make the topping melt the coconut oil in a pan on the stove before turning off the heat and whisking in the cacao powder and the maple syrup – you can add a little more maple syrup if you would like here but don’t add too much otherwise it will be too runny.
  9. You want a thick fudge consistency that can still be poured onto of the ice cream.
  10. Pour/drizzle the fudge sauce onto the ice cream bars and place back in the freezer for another hour to set.
  11. Once set, remove from the freezer and slice up before serving!

Salted Caramel mochi balls

Comment

Salted Caramel mochi balls

Ingredients

  • Salted Caramel Oppo ice cream
  • 95g of sweet glutinous rice flour
  • Additional rice flour for dusting
  • 30g of sugar (stevia can be used as a healthier version)
  • 175ml water
  • Cocoa powder for dusting

Method

  1. Scoop your ice cream and into little individual balls and freeze until solid. Use a cling film lined egg carton to act as a cradle for the mini scoops in the freezer.
  2. In a bowl mix together the rice flour and sugar. Cover and microwave for a minute. Add the water and whisk well. Re-cover, and microwave for one more minute. Stir again, cover and microwave for a final 30 seconds. 
  3. Sieve a little rice flour onto greaseproof paper. Transfer the mochi mixture to the parchment, spread evenly and sieve over more corn flour. 
  4. Roll out the mochi  with a rolling pin until it is about 1/4 inch thick. Apply more rice flour if you need. Leave in the fridge until cool.
  5. Using a 3 1/2 inch cookie cutter, cut discs out of the mochi - be generous in size - it's better to have more than less!
  6. Get one ice cream ball at a time and wrap the mochi around it tightly. Repeat this with all the ice cream balls, then refreeze until they are solid. 
  7. Before eating, let them sit at room temperature for 5 minutes - or until the outside layer of mochi is squeezable.   
  8. Dust with cocoa power and enjoy!

3. Top the bananas with a mixture of Oppo ice cream flavours. We went with Mint Choc Swirl and Salted Caramel for this one but feel free to mix it up. Shave the dark chocolate with a grater or a large kitchen knife then sprinkle on top, along with the chopped nuts, seeds and gojis.

Crunchy pear and ginger crumble with salted caramel

Comment

Crunchy pear and ginger crumble with salted caramel

Ingredients

(to serve 2 people) 

For the fruit

  • 2 large conference pears (they don’t have to be ripe)
  • 20g granulated xylitol
  • 60g mixed red berries

Crunchy crumble topping

  • 30g salted butter, cubed
  • 60g plain flour
  • 50g granulated xylitol
  • 40g porridge oats
  • 40g chopped almonds
  • 1 tsp. ginger powder
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon powder

Method

1. Peel and chop the pears into small cubes and gently heat in a pan with 20g of xylitol and the red berries until soft. Add 100ml of water to help the fruit cook and simmer until it’s all soft and the liquid has reduced to a shiny pink syrup. 

2. Whilst the fruit is cooking, turn the oven to 180 degrees.

3. To make the crumble topping: rub together the flour and cold cubes of butter with your fingertips until it resembles really fine breadcrumbs. Add the oats, xylitol, almonds, ginger and cinnamon and mix.

4. Spread the topping onto a lined baking tray and bake for 10 minutes. At this point the topping should be starting to clump together which is good, so take it out, give it a little mix and pop it in the oven for a further 5 minutes. 

Note: When you get it out the oven the topping won’t immediately go crunchy like it would with sugar. This is because xylitol doesn’t caramelise when it is heated like sugar does. Don’t worry though, you just have to allow the topping to cool a little and it’ll firm up and go nice and crunchy.

5. Pop the hot fruit mixture into a heatproof dish and add the crunchy crumble mix on top. Bake for 5 minutes so it’s ready to serve hot. Top with two scoops of salted caramel Oppo, or vanilla if you prefer. 

6. Tuck in.

Get creative with Oppo and Tea Pigs this weekend and make your own ice tea popsicles. These low sugar, low calories treats couldn’t be easier to make. In fact, the only tricky bit is waiting for the popsicles to freeze… 

Ingredients

Makes 4 popsicles

  • 250 ml boiling water
  • 1 Tea Pigs Peach Lemonade teabag
  • 1 tub Oppo Madagascan Vanilla ice cream
  • 100g fresh raspberries
  • Stevia drops (optional)

  2. To make your raspberry coulis: blend the raspberries until they are smooth and set aside
  3. Take your ice cream out of the freezer and leave it to soften a little (about 20 minutes at room temperature should do it)
  4. Take 4 small glasses (or if you’re especially prepared you can use a cake pop mould) and pour ¼ of the tea into each
  5. Next mix ¼ of the ice cream with the raspberry coulis and distribute this bright pink mixture equally into each glass
  6. Finally stir up the remaining ice cream until it resembles thick cream and add it equally into each glass
  7. Pop your glasses into the freezer to set and half way through (when the ice cream is just starting to firm up) pop a popsicle stick into the centre of each
  8. When your popsicles are completely set they are ready to enjoy. You can get them out of their moulds by dunking each glass in warm water for a few seconds and then giving the stick a twist to ease them out from the sides
