Let me introduce you to the best Earl Grey Hot Chocolate ever! It is decadent. It is aromatic! And Earl Grey tea infusion gives the old classic hot chocolate a lovely new twist!

It is SO cold outside right now and it’s expected to snow overnight – two whole centimeters! I know right?! Crazy! So imagine yourself on a winter’s night with your coziest socks and a cup of hot cocoa (made from scratch), warming you up!

This tea infused hot chocolate can be easily adapted to different tea flavours like lavender or rooibos. You are not limited to just Earl Grey. I particularly like using these Vanilla Earl Grey loose leaves tea. I love the sweet and floral perfume. This tea has a light almost citrusy flavour with a flowery smooth velvety creamy full body. It is absolutely delicious when enjoyed on its own or paired with dark chocolate!

ICY Bar Vancouver | Shaved Ice Dessert, Bubble Tea etc 利源冰店

[image_with_animation image_url=”13938″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”]

ICY Bar Vancouver 利源冰店 is located on Kingsways. Not too far from it is another shaved ice dessert shop called IcePik Shavery. Icy Bar and IcePik are not the same. ICY Bar menu includes a wide variety of icy desserts to help you beat the heat! Aside from Icy Bar’s signature mix icy plates, there are also bubble teas, slushes, potted soil plant puddings, tofu puddings and also more traditional Chinese desserts like black rice with coconut Milk.

There are plenty of free street parking on Kingsway and the side streets. Inside is small but still quite roomy. The green walls perhaps isn’t the best for photos. But if you are lucky to be seated at one of the white tables, a top down flat-lay may turn out ok. I’m sure you can work all those MySpace angles!

[image_with_animation image_url=”13917″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”]

We were invited by ChineseBites along with few fellow bloggers for menu tasting at ICY Bar Vancouver 利源冰店.

Icy Bar: Five Things You Need to Know

  1. Multiple Locations: 1475 Kingsway/Knight, 3618 Kingsway/Boundary, Parker Place, Crystal Mall. Richmond Night Market
  2. Mochi are made from scratch
  3. Pancakes are made fresh everyday
  4. Fruits are fresh cut everyday
  5. Minimum charge $3.50 pp

Traditional Eight Mix Icy 八寶冰 can be customized with eight toppings $10, four $6.50, three items with coconut milk cup $5.50. Toppings include grass jelly, almond jelly, boba pearls, tapioca, pudding, chendol, red bean, coconut jelly, mochi, and fresh fruits (watermelon, mango, strawberry, lychee, pineapple, etc.) You can also add ice cream and mango puree as toppings also for additional charge.

It’s refreshing to beat the heat with some natural flavors and fresh fruits. I especially like the mochi and mango poppers as toppings. It’s summer in a bowl.

[image_with_animation image_url=”13926″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”]

We tried a variety of bubble tea and slush. I liked the Ferrero Rocher. It pretty much tastes like chocolate milk with some grounded chocolate for texture. Fresh Taro Bubble Tea was a bit light tasting. Mango Slush was my favorite. Not too sweet and made with fresh mangoes. I would recommended getting half sweet.

[image_with_animation image_url=”13927″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”]

Black Rice with Coconut Milk 椰汁黑糯米: This is a hot dessert soup and is one of my favorites. Black rice is good for women’s health in general. I like the creaminess with some texture. Added coconut milk makes it very soothing. This is one of my go to fall/winter desserts.

[image_with_animation image_url=”13928″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][image_with_animation image_url=”13929″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”]

Tea Egg 茶葉蛋: Hard-boiled eggs with the subtle flavor of star anise, cinnamon and soy flavor. The deep brown hues comes from of black tea and soy. I love eggs. Runny, hard, soft or fried. I love them all.

[image_with_animation image_url=”13930″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][image_with_animation image_url=”13933″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”]

Chocolate Honey Toast 巧克力金磚: An impressive tower of thick toast smothered in chocolate, honey, and condensed milk. Also available in mango honey toast, strawberry, peanut butter, nutella, red bean green tea ice cream, and original thick toast.

[image_with_animation image_url=”13931″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”]

Plant Pudding 盆栽布丁:

  1. Original 原味
  2. Durian 榴蓮
  3. Mango 芒果
  4. Oreo 奧利奧
  5. Tiramisu 提拉米蘇

My favorite was Tiramisu and Mango. I like the thick whipped cream and that it wasn’t overly sweet. The presentation in a soil plant pot is super cute.

[image_with_animation image_url=”13935″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”]

Tofu Pudding 豆腐花: The tofu pudding itself was pretty smooth but not as silky as I prefer. But overall still quite tasty and unsweetened. Customize your own toppings. The toppings are the same as those used for mix icy shaved ice dessert.

[image_with_animation image_url=”13924″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”]

Pancake Series 班戟: Color pillows of creamy sweetness. Wrapped inside each pancake are fresh fruits such as

  • Strawberry 草莓
  • Mango 芒果
  • Durian 榴蓮
  • Taro 芋頭

Again, I liked mango the best. If you are a fan of durian, than you will like the creaminess of durian with whipped cream.

I quite like Icy Bar and would definitely come back. I like variety of choices of either shaved ice desserts, bubble tea or even traditional Chinese dessert soup. It is a good place to order a few things to share. Service is prompt and prices are reasonable.

Frozen Coconut Ice Cream | Dairy Free Alternative

Frozen Coconut Ice Cream | Dairy Free Alternative

Frozen Coconut Ice Cream Dairy Free

Frozen Coconut Ice Cream Dairy Free

 

 

We recently discovered Frozen Coconut, Be Coconut Water, and Be Coconut Chips at the 2014 Grocery Showcase West and CHFA West 2014. One of my favorite desserts is ice cream. Frozen Coconut Ice Cream is extremely creamy and is made from fair trade ingredients, raw (flash heated) coconut milk. Compared to their competitors, Frozen Coconut also has more coconut milk and less water than their competitors. They use 100% Agave syrup and a touch of Canadian Sea Salt to bring out the flavors. We knew, we liked it but what we didn’t know initially was that Ryan Geni and Kevin Carta both graduated with Honors from Ice Cream University in New York City. Frozen Coconut ‘ice cream’ is perfect for diabetics and those with lactose intolerance.

 

Frozen Coconut Ice Cream Benefits

  • Gluten Free
  • Wheat Free
  • Dairy Free
  • Peanut Free
  • Nut Free
  • Soy Free

 

Frozen Coconut Ice Cream Dairy Free

 

Frozen Coconut Frozen Dessert Flavors

  • Classic Coconut
  • Chocolate Mint
  • Lemon Meringue
  • Mixed Berry
  • Chocolate
  • Orange Cream

 

Frozen Coconut has six different flavors. My favorite is Classic Coconut. It is clean, rich in coconut flavors and creamy. I like to pair it with some lemon zest and Be Coconut chips. If you have some coconut oil, melt a little and use it as a syrup. On contact onto the frozen coconut ice cream it will freeze and be a little crunchy. Orange Cream is also very good. It is like having a Creamsicle. It is not as creamy as the Classic Coconut however. Chocolate and Chocolate Mint are very similar in flavor. I’ve tried a lot of dairy free ‘ice cream’ but by far I think Frozen Coconut resembles ice cream the closest. Frozen Coconut is perfect for all you health nuts and organic gurus and fast food fans too. It’s for vegans and vegetarians and omnivores of all ages.
