Adults Only Chocolate Ice Cream Smoothie

So good, it’s totally worth making an entire jug of this stuff. Amarula is awesome for this, but it’s not vegan, so you can use Bom Bom Nilli Vanilli “cream” liqueur instead, made with rum and almond milk. All versions turn out delicious. I decorated the jug with chocolate sauce to give it a little extra visual appeal. You can decorate individual glasses too. Just generously squirt sauce in your empty glass and let it drip around before pouring and serving.

1 shot Amarula or Bom Bom

1 scoop NO BULL Double Chocolate Frozen Dessert

1 cup of coconut milk (or any milk substitute of your choice)

A sumptuous indulgence to end a hot day! I prefer to use a Pinot Noir for my red wine float. A fruity Shiraz or an Argentinian Malbec works wonderfully also. Don’t forget to let your wine breath for at least 20 mins before serving. Then top with a generous helping of No Bull Strawberry Frappe Frozen Dessert. Yum!

Ingredients (1 serving):

1 glass of wine

1-2 scoops of NO BULL Strawberry Frappe Frozen Dessert

Lola enjoying No Bull Vegan Ice Cream

This Mother’s Day is special for me, as it is my first as a mother, or at least, a mother-to-be. I’m experiencing for the first time all the feelings I hear from mothers everywhere that didn’t mean so much watching from the outside – now, as I prepare to deliver my first child in 9 weeks at the ripe old age of 45 years, my perspectives have shifted.

I’m now filled with excitement to meet my little guy and am so curious to see what kind of personality he has, and who he looks like. Will he have his Dad’s famous Roman toe? Will he get my hairy back patch? Will he be athletic, smart, happy, healthy?

I realize now how much love, anxiety, stress, happiness, effort, pain and joy being a mother is. It makes me appreciate my own mother even more, knowing she felt all these things for me when she was alive.

So for this blog post, I’ve found 5 amazing women to talk to about their most memorable moments as mothers and their experiences with ice cream… this being an alternate ice cream blog n all ;p


Brynne, from AZ – Emmy nominated animation writer, activist and badass mother of three extraordinary kids, one of which is now a Hollywood writer and an equally badass activist herself.

Jane, from FL – A talented yoga instructor and first-time mom, 5 months into motherhood.

Lola, from KY – Mother of 4, grandmother to 8 and great-grandmother to 4 little rascals.

Randi, from KY – Daughter of Lola, and mother of one talented little boy.

Michelle, from TX – Mother of one, my sister and fearless, skydiving over-achiever.

I asked our mothers five simple questions and have compiled their responses below. So sit back with a glass of wine, your favorite tub of No Bull vegan ice cream, and enjoy a slice of motherly love…. And if you’re a mother too, I raise my alcohol-free glass of wine to you as I get ready for what is to come – and salute you for stepping up day in day out, thanklessly.

Q: What are some of the small but most memorable happy moments you have as a mother?


“Far too many to list. My happiest times were having a baby asleep in a nearby bassinette while I did some routine chore like folding laundry. Having them so happy to see me when I picked them up from school or they spotted me in the crowd at a school event. Being able to soothe boo-boos or hurt feelings with a soft word and a smooch. Making them belly laugh. “


“The first time my baby giggled just melted my heart. I will never forget that moment. I try and find new ways to make him laugh everyday, even if I look ridiculous. I also love singing him to sleep.”


“Jason… such a great father now, was so helpful with his little sister when she was a baby. One day she was crying and by the time I got to her in the bedroom he had already got her bottle and was trying to feed her. He said “Mommy she’s hungry. Didn’t you hear her crying? What would she do without me?” He looked so serious!”


“When my son told me “you’re the best Mommy” for the first time and EVERY time he says I love you!”

“I enjoy seeing my daughter concentrate on a project, whether it’s coloring, baking, or taking out the trash. I can see a real sense of accomplishment on her face and that makes me pretty happy.“

Q:  Do you have any memorable moments as a mother that involved ice cream?


“Every summer I took the kids to the Jersey shore to visit their grandparents, uncles, aunts and cousins. My parents had an old-fashioned wooden ice cream maker with the handle that had to be turned by hand. I always found it fascinating that choosing an ice cream flavor at the supermarket, all three stuck to vanilla, chocolate or strawberry, but when it was handmade, they’d be happy with peach, blackberry or whatever flavor we made.”


“When I was pregnant with my son I craved sweets like crazy. I would say that ice cream was my biggest craving. I blamed his father, because he has a big sweet tooth.”


“Leah –  made a funny face after each bite but she kept coming back for more.

Ricky – after his first taste, it’s all he ever wanted to eat.

Jason  – for the longest time would only eat chocolate ice cream. I don’t know if it was because that was the first kind he tried or because he liked it so much that he just didn’t want to try a different flavor.

Randi – would cry after each bite because it was so cold, but she still kept eating it.”


“When my son was younger, anytime he saw me with something sweet he’d ask “Mom what is that?” I would say “THIS IS MOMMY’S”. Then he wouldn’t ask again. That was until others gave him sweets, then that became all he would ask for.”


“When her temperature is up and she’s not feeling great, ice cream really comes to the rescue. Giving her a little bit of ice cream really lifts her spirits and helps cool her body down, too. It’s a win-win!“

Q: What traditions do you have with your children that include food?


“When I was growing up, we spent a lot of time on the boardwalk at Seaside Heights. We’d swim all day and then stroll the boardwalk eating hot sausage and peppers. Dessert was a thick slice of Neapolitan ice cream between a pair of crisply toasted waffles, all wrapped in waxed paper. By the time my kids were old enough, Seaside Heights wasn’t the safest place to be, so all during the summers I made them waffle ice cream sandwiches at home.”


“My son just turned 5 months old, and we will start solid foods soon. I’m so looking forward to seeing his face as he tries all these new foods for the first time.”


“Each one had a different favorite food. So when they were young each week one would choose what they wanted to eat and we would all eat it together.  They also got to choose their favorite ice cream on their Birthdays.”


“Each year he gets his face smashed in his cake.”


“Our family loves to bake! Our daughter loves nothing more than to roll out some dough or mix up some cake or cookie batter and create a delicious dessert; and what better way to serve any of the above but with ice cream! My father is a chef, so when he comes to visit, we always make a point of baking something together. It’s really fun and a great way to bond. It has become the highlight of his visits!“

Q:  What contributions in your life make you most proud?


“I like to think that being a supportive friend counts for something. I have a knack for helping newer writers find their own voice, and their accomplishments make me very proud. I have raised three kind and decent human beings, and I hope that counts for something as well.”


“I’m proud of the small things I do to reduce my carbon footprint. I make my own laundry detergent, hand soap, and cleaning products. I use Naples soap company bars of shampoo, conditioner, and body soap, which use no packaging and work and smell awesome. I have reusable, Ziploc, grocery, and produce bags. I use cloth napkins, cloth-cleaning towels. I also use reusable diapers and wipes for my baby. I have a compost. I also don’t buy or drink out of plastic bottles (unless there’s a hurricane). I work hard to be very conscious of what I purchase and use in my home. Avoiding plastics and one-use items.”


“All of my thoughtful and loving children, my willingness to forgive and my ability to put a smile on a friends face when they are feeling down.”


“My son.”


“ I’m definitely most proud of raising a strong, confident little girl. We try to emphasize that she can be or do anything she wants — she’s just got to put her mind to it.”

Q:  What do you want to experience the most in your lifetime?


“I have led a pretty full and active life, so there isn’t much left that I haven’t already done as an individual. What I really want is for my country to return to some semblance of sanity.”


“I want to watch my son grow up. I want him to be able to enjoy life, and all this beautiful earth has to offer. That being said, I would love to see people take conservation and preservation more seriously. Treating the planet, and the creatures that share it with us, with love and respect. If everyone made small changes, it could make a huge difference.”


“At my age I have already experienced so much (that I’m very grateful for) that some people will never get the chance to experience… but really I would most love to be able to travel to Paris with ALL of my family to enjoy all of the things that this beautiful Country has to offer… and the icing on the cake would be to have a loving companion to share it all with as well.”


“I’ve always wanted to have a meet and greet with Usher.”


“The love of family is the best experience I could dream of. I want to travel and see the world, but nothing beats sharing that experience with the ones you love.”
