      Oooh, I love the sound of that! I haven’t explored any of her non-ice cream creations yet, but I just bet they’re every bit as delicious. Thanks so much, Ileana!

    Girl you just continue to blow me away… Pad Thai in Ice Cream, that sounds so amazing! and i’m going to hold on to summer for as long as possible. Especially since it’s still 80+ degrees here in Atlanta. :)

      Oh girl, please hold on to it extra for me! I’m not ready to let it go yet. Speaking of summer, I meant to tell you way back — your hummingbird cake story KILLED ME. Was it Mama Dip’s cake or your other grandma?! That is too, too hilarious, though probably not at the time.. I hope yall still got to enjoy it!!! I just bet it was so beautiful and delicious still!

      Oh my goodness that sounds AMAZING, Belinda!! I love sweet chili sauce with a passion… Now you’ve got me dreaming about that caramel sauce. Thank you so much for the drool-inducing comment :) :)

      High-five for cilantro love!! I know, it definitely adds an intense kick … so not for everybody! But a smidge was fun, I thought :) Thanks so much, Tieghan!

    Amazing – who would have thought chili and coriander on ice cream would be so tempting?

    I had to look up what cilantro was (it’s coriander) and found a ‘I Hate Cilantro’ society as one of the first hits. Gobsmacking.

    this looks phenomenal! i also hail from the sometimes-sort-of-lactose-intolerant camp and still eat dairy anyway…this makes the whole dairy free idea sound much more appealing!

      Baha I’m so glad I’m not alone! But it’s true, there’s really no reason to subject ourselves to tummy troubles when there’s such a wealth of dairy-free goodness out there.. I’m super excited to keep exploring it. Thank you so much, Mel!

    Omgomgomg THIS. The natural foods market I frequent carries about a half dozen Jeni’s flavors, but they’re all on the tamer side. (I think the “craziest” one might have been sweet potato + torched marshmallow.) I’ve definitely never seen Bangkok Peanut there, because I would have bought it immediately and eaten all of it shortly thereafter. Pad thai in ice cream form is pretty much a dream I didn’t even know I had until 10 minutes ago. Coconut, peanuts, heat, CILANTRO. Ahhh!!!

    Seriously, the cilantro!! (I am going to devote an entire second paragraph to this.) I’ve wanted my cilantro love to make its way over to sweeter applications, but infusing things like cream and whatnot didn’t really make sense, since it’s most delicious when fresh and as is. This reminds me a lot of an ice cream revelation I had recently when I had a cup of vanilla + toasted oak ice cream that was peppered with lots of little bits of dill. When I saw it my first thought was, “oh damn, they just straight up put the dill IN the ice cream.” It was crazy good! So yup, I will obsess over fresh cilantro on sweets all day/week. Or omg, candied cilantro leaves! YES. ♥

      Ahaha Carey this comment made me SO HAPPY!! I’m so glad you share my cilantro love <3 (and um, oh my god candied cilantro needs to happen!) Also, dill, toasted oak, and vanilla? That just blew my mind. I love our flavor talks!! <3 <3 <3

    i am totally living vicariously through your beautiful new-york-in-the-early-fall words… this might be my favorite time in new york. *sigh* THANK YOU for saying that vegan ice cream is just as good if not better. have you ever had raw ice cream company ice cream??? they only sell it in new york (i think) at whole foods and it costs an arm and a leg, but it is raw and vegan and one of the best ice creams i’ve ever had.

    AND THIS PEANUT ICE CREAM THOUGH. cilantro??!?!?!! you’re a badass.

    you are so totally right about this weird, in between seasonal thang going on! i’ve still got squash, tomatoes, and peaches, but also apples, winter squash, tons of kale and pears! and ice cream is so necessary right now (but really, when is it not?)! i am so digging the mix of cilantro and peanuts in a sweet ice creamy form, cynthia! and yay for vegan ice cream!!!! <3 <3 <3s to you!

    This sound INCREDIBLE (well, minus the cilantro for me, but anywayyys)…

    As for fall, I don’t know what you’re talking about. San Francisco’s summer is just beginning (July and August are typically foggy, “summer” is September/October).

    Ooh, lady. I just love the complex flavors of this ice cream – AND THAT IT’S VEGAN! It was 90˚F in Denver today and won’t be cooling down until the end of the week, so I think I’m going to need to give this a whirl before summer officially ends.

    So even though it IS still hot as volcanic monkeys over here, it’s officially summer somewhere in the other hemisphere–and let’s face it, since when did we need an excuse to ice cream (yes I just turned that into a verb)? I’m also overdue for a vegan ice cream–and as I gushed elsewhere, peanut ice cream is my FAV. Had my first and loveliest taste of it in Taipei 101. I will be trying this and sharing it evurywhareee, Cynthia!

    I love absolutely everything about this ice cream; the final touch with the cilantro is just pure genius. Gorgeous! There have indeed been some pretty awesome looking vegan ice cream recipes popping up on the Internet lately and I’ve been intrigued to try one of them. Thanks to you, now more than ever!

    I love it how you come up with the most -to me- unthinkable sounding new recipes. This looks amazing and the ‘fluffiest, softest ice cream’ sounds heavenly!

    Pad Thai in ice cream form? I’m intrigued! I definitely know what you mean about fall – it was freezing on my walk to work this morning but then I see it’s going to hit the 80s this weekend so I’m hoping I can squeeze in a little more ice cream before it gets too cold.

    We have Jenni’s book, but for one reason or another haven’t gotten past reading the recipes. This snagged my attention. Lovely photos–the ice cream sounds delicious. Oh, and “…but because I’m bad I do it anyway…” Good motto for a coat of arms. Ken

    I’ve never seen something this out-of-the-box with ice cream, lady! And we have Salt and Straw here! You’re putting them to shame. Man I bet they wish they thought of cilantro in peanut ice cream! FOR VEGANS. I would love to try this crazy concoction! I am so in love with Jeni’s method because I can hardly be bothered with custards….. hashtag lazy hashtag humanely-raised eggs cost soooo much. This was a great read, thank you!

    How obnoxious will it be if I tell you in just about every form of online media that this is maybe my favorite ice cream ever and that I would maybe almost move back to OH just for the opportunity to eat freshly dipped Jeni’s on the reg and that you are my hero beyond heroes for taking it to even the next level with your gorgie-smorgie photos and overall loveliness? Pretty obnoxious, I’m guessing. <3

    Hi I totally buy it and love this salt-chili-sugar twist to ice cream. I was browsing your blog for the mooncake recipe (finally received the molds from China this week !) and now feel frantic because i want to do the mooncake AND the ice cream.. While my work presentation still needs to be done :) Thanks for the inspiration, love it! Enjoy your week end!

      I am so glad you asked this — no, it’s not vegan at all! D’oh. What a huge oversight by me. I’ve corrected the recipe to dairy-free. Thank you so much for the great question!

say hello!
