I had a bit of Earl Grey ice cream in the fridge from Bootleg Creamery and decided chocolate sauce would be the perfect pairing*. I found this simple recipe from Tyler Florence and decided to make it vegan cause we had no dairy in the house. The addition of coconut/almond milk and coconut oil give it a slight coconut taste. YUM. Perfect for drizzling on ice cream (yup), into coffee, on strawberries, or spooning directly into your mouth. Enjoy!
8 oz bittersweet dark chocolate, chopped
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 cup coconut/almond milk
Gently warm coconut/almond milk with the coconut oil on low heat. Once oil has melted, add chopped chocolate and stir continuously until chocolate is almost 100% melted, pull from heat and continue to stir until no chocolate chunks remain. Let sauce cool to room temp. If you don’t finish it in one sitting, keep in airtight jar in fridge for up to 7 days.

With this national holiday, it’s an absolute non-negotiable; ice cream is hand's-down one of the best sweet treats to ever grace the planet. Why you might ask?! Well, there’s something for everybody!
Experimenting with flavor combinations lies at the core of Etta+Billie’s DNA, and ice cream flavors are no exception. When it comes to unique pairings, we've got a handful of favorites:
Bring on the refreshing salads and anything you can char up on the grill… it’s summertime! There’s something just so nostalgic about the foods we eat during this season that evoke memories of warm nights and being surrounded by friends and family. I’d argue that the best recipes for this time of year are the simplest and highlight the season’s ripest ingredients- like fresh and sweet tomatoes!
