Nov. 2015- Healthy Healing Holiday Recipes

Double Ginger Dessert

20 minutes prep time  |  Makes 4 servings.


A light dessert with my favorite healing spices

5 cups Vanilla Rice Dream frozen dessert

1/4 cup diced crystallized ginger

3/4 tsp cardamom

1/2 tsp. cinamom

Ginger ale

Slightly soften the Vanilla Rice Dream by letting it stand at room temperature about 10 minutes. Scoop into a large bowl. Add crystallized ginger, cardamom, and cinnamon; swirl ingredients together. Place bowl in freezer until dessert is firm enough to scoop… about 1 and one half hours; if storing up to 1 week, cover air-tight. Divide into 4 large water goblets. Slowly fill glasses with icy ginger ale, and serve immediately.
