Spa Sundaes

Another coconutty post:

For the most part, it’s great to have a boyfriend on Valentine’s Day. However, there is one downside to not being single on the day: it means you’re left out of Girls’ Night! Just in case some of you don’t know what Valentine’s Day Girls’ Night is, here are the kinds of things that go on:

  • nail-painting
  • gossiping
  • junk-food-eating
  • movie-watching
  • and most importantly: boy-bashing!

So even though my Valentine’s Day couldn’t have been more perfect than it was, I was a little sad about having missed Girls’ Night.  Luckily, my magnanimous friends decided to recreate the night so they could catch me–and all their other non-single friends–up on all the very important shenanigans we missed. No Girls’ Night is complete without ice cream.  I picked up some supplies just for the occasion.

Hello coconut milk ice cream!  This was my first time trying Nada Moo, a coconut-based ice cream that hails from right here in Texas. One of my other friends brought dairy ice cream to the party, but guess what: Nobody touched it!  That’s how good this stuff was!  (My friends did have quite a good time making fun of the ice cream’s high fiber content… but that’s a different story.)

I only bought one container of Nada Moo, so we had to split it six ways.  Luckily, I’d also purchased an abundance of fresh berries, which kept our vanilla ice cream Sundaes from being mini-sized.   Hey, how was I supposed to know that my vegan-food-fearing friends would go cookoo for coconuts?

Chocolate-Covered Words of the Day

This is really sad: Looking over recent posts, I’ve realized that it’s been entirely too long since the last time I did a cupcake post!  I am a disgrace to my Cupcake Queen Crown!  Must. Remedy. Soon.

    I agree the cupcake queen crown is looking a tad dusty. Nothing a good baking session won’t fix!

    Speaking of which… I have a rather large quantitiy of white chocolate pb that will be expireing soon…any thoughts on what I could bake it into before it all goes to waste? I’m prying the minds of all of the baking genius’s I can think of.

    With Love and lots of happy baking wishes,

    Can’t wait to see a pic of yuor boyfriend if he isn’t too camera shy! Looking forward to the next post- congrats for organizing the FAQ page Katie! 🙂

  3. Kathy says

    The coconut ice cream sounds yummy. I’m hoping I can find it here in Colorado. What a fun idea – girls night.

    Looking forward to reading more about your cupcakes

  4. Sweetie Pie says

    “Nada Moo” is such a great name for a coconut ice cream. Whoever came up with it is a crazy genius! Awesome!

    I’m glad you had fun and yummy eats with your friends!

  5. Bibis says

    i have to try that ice cream!
    i had a delicious coconut milk popsicle on saturday! it had shredded coconut and it was soooo good 🙂
    hope u had a terrific weekend! ^^

  6. Brandi C says

    I Love Ice Cream & would love to try the Nada Moo! Too bad I don’t live in Texas : (

    Speaking of girls night, we just had one last nite because everyone just got back from spring break. So Much Fun!

  7. Coconutgal says

    If you can’t tell… I kind of LIKE coconut milk ice cream too 😀
    I just went to their website, the flavors sound great! Which flavor did you try? I want to try Maple Pecan, yum! You should get more and keep it for yourself so you don’t have to split it 6 ways!!
    I am looking forward to a new cupcake post!

  8. Jane says

    i’m happy to hear you’ve finally tried the most delicious vegan treat in the world- COCONUT ICE CREAM!! I’ve only tried So Delicious brand, that’s cool that there is one made in Texas. And I haven’t tried any chocolate flavors yet, just the vanilla and cookie dough.
    I’m sorry you had to split one of those dinky container 6 ways though- that sucks!
    Looking forward to your cupcake post 🙂

  9. jrsimon56 says

    Holy Moo, I need to get my hands on that stuff. A self proclaimed coconut addict, like so many, I can’t wait to find this stuff 🙂

  10. Virginia says

    where i live, the selection of vegan ice cream is pathetic compared to all the goodness i find online! you lucky people, you! i agree, cupcakes deserve their own page!!

  11. Erin says

    Coconut ice cream is one of the best things I’ve ever put in my mouth.
    Beautiful sundaes! I agree about girls night too, I do miss those!

  12. lisaheartspizza says

    It’s so awesome when you bring your friends a “healthy” or vegan product and they end up falling in love! I used to fool people all the time, but I could never get my friends and fam to try things if I told them it was vegan first, only AFTER!

  13. Marianne says

    Mmmm, coconut milk ice cream. I just picked some up this weekend since it has finally made it’s way to my part of Canada. It’s pretty spectacular. Must try out all the flavours. And I love that it has fibre!

  14. Erin says

    I’ve been missing the cupcakes! I’m so glad you’re gonna bring ’em back 🙂
    Those sound like most of my nights, save the boy bashing!

  15. ohkansascity says

    Oh, that sundae looks fantastic, and very delish. And that ice cream even more. You know something is good when people keep gobbling up your food. My boyfriend is like that with my gluten-free donuts. He’d rather spend $7 on a box of those then go to the donut shop and buy regular donuts!

  16. Bianca- Vegan Crunk says

    I’ve never seen Nada Moo, but I love that motto on the lid – “where having a cow is out of the question.” Cute!

  17. River (Wing-It Vegan) says

    Ooh yum! I love the name “Nada Moo”. Your sundae looks so good, I can see why your friends chose your coconut ice cream over the dairy one!

    It’s the Cupcake Queen! You are not a disgrace to the crown, wear it proudly and bake away! 🙂

  18. Meghan Telpner says

    I have an amazing recipe for coconut ice cream and it is so easy to make (sans ice cream maker too!). I’ll have to get that up soon soon soon.

    And Girls nights are the best.

  19. Sal says

    Girls night sounds fun. I’m having one on saturday but we’re doing away with the ice cream and having cocktails instead!

    I do love ice cream made with coconut milk though – so good!

  20. Meredith (Pursuing Balance) says

    Fun!!! I’m in a long distance relationship, and while this year we were lucky enough to spend Valentine’s Day together, that was not the case last year! So last year I spent the day with my favorite gay boy watching chick flicks and eating chocolate covered strawberries — still a great Valentine’s Day in my opinion!!! 🙂

  21. Katharina says

    Hey Katie! Okay so this doesn’t really have to do with coconut ice cream or cupcakes


    it does have to do with CHOCOLATE! I made a pudding out of tofu, cocoa powder and I added a mint syrup to it. It was a mint chocolate pudding – so good! Anyway, I thought I would pass it on to you since you like to make puddings and you love chocolate.

  22. Heather Eats Almond Butter says

    Must find Nada Moo. You know I love coconut products…and ice-cream. Glad you enjoyed your girls night. 🙂

  23. Melissa says

    NadaMoo! here just stopping by to say thanks for finding us & spreading the word…

    NadaMoo! plus Chocolate-Covered Katie (with cute cupcake hat) equals friends forever!!!

    please contact me anytime with any questions!!!
