This dessert idea is so easy!
Serving options include: adding some Papa Vince Sea Salt or chopped nuts for extra crunch or serving with berries, other fruits or an Italian cookie.
You may think that olive oil is reserved for appetizers and entrees and maybe even drinking that single shot in the morning to boost your health. Who says that Extra Virgin Olive Oil doesn't also make a delicious dessert?
You know the Italians, they put their Extra Virgin Olive Oil on everything and ice cream is no exception. Top Italian Chefs inspired this idea and it's being served at Italian coffee shops and trendy restaurants, it's a must try for all adventurous foodies, so of course we had to give it the taste test!
Research shows that a variety of taste sensations (sweet, salty, spicy) better satisfy the taste buds than a single dominant flavor and that's why the combination of the creamy vanilla ice cream and the sweet yet tart Lemon Olive Oil works so well!
We all need a little sweet treat from time to time and this one tastes so much better than store bought toppings which are full of ingredients that you can't pronounce. Papa Vince Lemon Olive Oil contains only crushed lemons and olives and is full of anti-oxidants and vitamins A, B6, E & K1, it's the best guilt free dessert! You can always make your own ice cream and make it even healthier!
This is a traditional recipe with many of the flavors of Sicily. It makes a tasty & healthy pesto sauce that's ready in less than 30 minutes and can be served with Papa Vince Busiate Pasta.
You can use any nuts in this recipe but Chef Federico likes to use walnuts for their nutritional profile. Walnuts have a higher level of both anti-oxidants and omega 3 fatty acids than any other nut and can help to lower the risk of certain diseases as well as support heart and brain health and healthy aging.
