Mango Soya Ice Cream
Oct 9th, 2010 by niceyfemme

I’ve always wanted to cook and make things that we (consumers) just normally buy  in supermarkets. Learning how to do them myself give me some kind of satisfaction, or pride maybe, that I am able to make it myself and most of the time make even better and healthier versions.

I guess I am just really trying hard to find ways to still enjoy the food I like without the guilt. Like ice cream. I know it’s bad for us and occasional surrender to the cravings is ok but me being me, when I eat I want to be able to eat until I am satisfied and with guilt, I will never be satisfied. So I try to cook/prepare food (in this case, ice cream) so we can have yummy ice cream without feeling guilty.

First time I experimented with Soy Ice Cream, it wasn’t good I have to admit. There’s something in it that I can’t take. Blame that on the silken tofu I used which I found in Robinson’s supermarket. I knew the consistency is not good so I brought back home the type of silken tofu I’m used to in Singapore.

And this time I experimented with Philippine mangoes which I believe is the sweetest in the world. The “sweet” mangoes I tried in Singapore is not even sweet. Well I bought it from SM, the overripe mangoes. Cheap at Php25 for 2 pieces of mangoes.

This is so good that even Mommy approved of this, given her being picky. 🙂

Here’s my recipe:

1 Box of Silken tofu (I used the extra smooth one)

1 cup plain soy milk

Soya Ice Cream with Jackfruit
Jun 3rd, 2010 by niceyfemme

I have the tendency to love “healthy” versions of the regular sinful stuff like ice cream. You guys remember B.T.I.C? As in Better Than Ice Cream? I believe it is frozen yogurt and it tastes so good I loved that when I was still in Peninsula Manila. I needed my fix everyday and I frequent the outlet in Glorietta 4 beside Rustan’s. I wonder if B.T.I.C is still in the market?

Singapore is a hot and humid country, much like the weather we recently experienced here. Summer 2010 is wow! It’s like the natural version of thermogenic fat burners. So hot I feel like I’m lighter heheh.. So one time, when Greta (my housemate) and I went to Sheng Shiong and we passed by Mr. Bean in MRT station, I just had to finally try it. I’ve always wondered if it taste yucky or not. I was so happy with it that it became an addiction. It’s not cheap to have 3 servings a day at SGD 1.80 each.

Since we don’t have Mr. Bean here in Philippines, I tried replicating that soya ice cream I dearly love. I looked for a recipe online and found some. So here is how I did it.

Plus 1 block of Silken Tofu. I have to say this isn’t as soft and smooth as the one I always buy in SG.
