Do you know that Joma Ice Cream is made in our very own factory? We have all sorts of flavors ranging from the classics: chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry to peanut butter, rum raisin, chocolate chip cookie, coconut, coffee almond, passion-mango sorbet and lemon sorbet (the sorbets are dairy-free!). At Joma, we can scoop it into our homemade cones or you can enjoy it in a cup. BUT we also have take-home tubs in 190ml and 520ml full of premium creamy goodness at a great price. That's 3.5 scoops in the small and 9.5 scoops in the large! So many things to do with all those scoops!
When you take home one (or 10) of these tubs-of-dreaminess, there are countless ways to make creative and delicious ice cream treats for yourself, your family, a party or guests. Here, we have come up with 5 classic ice cream treats, all quick and easy to make at home!
Ice Cream Sandwich: Get two cookies (Joma chocolate chip cookie or oatmeal raisin work great!) and put a scoop of ice cream in between the two cookies. Give your sandwich a little squeeze it to make it like a hamburger and dig in! These can be made ahead and kept in the freezer for kids or guests.
Brownie Sundae: Take a homemade chocolatey brownie from Joma. Heat it for 10-20 seconds in the microwave, and then top it with a big scoop of ice cream. Have fun with the flavors. Peanut butter tastes great! Before you take that first bite, add some fresh whipped cream, maybe some toasted almonds or sprinkles, and a drizzle of chocolate syrup. Can it get any better than this? Why, yes. Our favorite way to have this deluxe treat is with a shot of espresso poured on top of the brownie (while hot, before the ice cream). You have just reached heaven.
On waffles! Joma's Canadian roots prefer good ole' maple syrup on a waffle, but we know our friends from around the world love their waffles with a scoop of ice cream and chocolate syrup! Give it a try.
Root Beer Float: A North American classic. Traditionally, this is 1 scoop of vanilla ice cream dunked in a big mug of root beer. However, since we live in Southeast Asia, root beer may be difficult to find. In this case, you can also substitute it with Coke/Pepsi, or your soda of choice. The best part is the foam on top, formed by the ice cream and soda bubbles!
Banana Split: We are rolling with the classics now! Mix it up and have fun, but here's the original recipe: 1 banana, cut down the middle and laid open. Add one scoop of strawberry, one vanilla, and one chocolate. Top with whipped cream, sprinkles, maybe a little chocolate syrup, and don't forget the cherry!
We could go on and on, but we'll save that for another post! What's your favorite ice cream treat?
