I don’t even want to tell you what I made and consumed last night. I mean… it crosses all sorts of lines of healthiness and whole foods and blah blah blah. I blame Serendipity.
See, yesterday afternoon I was perusin’ an Eat, Live, Run post where Jenna confessed that she wanted to drink one of these from a sippy cup (go on, click that link), and I thought… hmm. I mean, I DO still have some Dandies left over from my s’mores cupcakes. Serendipity? I filed the idea away in my head. I figured, if it’s meant to be, things will fall into place. Serendipity.
Then last night I did some grocery shopping, and lo and behold – organic Rice Dream ice cream was on sale for $2.69. I very rarely buy vegan ice cream, but… hmm. I picked up a carton of the vanilla variety. Serendipity.
I went home. I ate dinner. And I thought, hmmmm. I had the marshmallows. I had the ice cream. I had the almond milk. Hmmm. Serendipity?
A few little Dandies found their way into the oven, under the broiler, and they came out all puffy, with a little sun tan.
After getting all warm and toasty in the oven, the little marshies obviously needed to cool down with some vanilla ice cream… in my blender. And, at that point, there was really nothing I could do but make a veganized version of Joy the Baker’s Toasted Marshmallow Milkshake.
A Toasted Marshmallow Milkshake tastes pretty much exactly like you’d imagine. It is pure, unadulterated sugary sweetness. Like, head-to-the-dentist-and-do-not-pass-Go kind of sweet. Like, my five-year-old self would’ve been all over this thing, promising marriage and babies and a life of eternal luuurve.
My adult self, however, was a little horrified. I mean… I drank it; I won’t lie. Afterwards, though, I felt like I might slip into a sugar coma at any minute. It was touch and go for a while, but I survived and came out on the other side with an intense craving for greens and hemp and anything hippie-healthy. Still though… it was pretty tasty.
Next time, I’ll add chocolate. Serendipity?
What’s the sugariest thing you’ve ever eaten? How do eXtreme amounts of sugar affect you? Have you lost your tolerance for super-sweet foods as you’ve gotten older?
