Spice Up Your Vanilla Ice Cream!!!

By October 7, 2016 Herbs & Spices

Recently I was contacted by a gentleman by the name of Brett who has a company called “SnoSpice” and wanted me to try out his product.

What is SnoSpice, you ask?  

SnoSpice is an assortment of seasonings and spices that you sprinkle on to plain vanilla ice cream to kick up the flavor a couple of notches.

They have many different flavors and I had the great opportunity of trying out 4 of them. Here they are:sspice-1

  • Cinnamon for Optimist
  • Pumpkin Carriage
  • Turmeric’D
  • Lemon + Basil

I have to tell you, I was pretty surprised at how good this was….even the Lemon + Basil!

OK, I can see sprinkling cinnamon or pumpkin or even turmeric on ice cream, but lemon and basil?? Really?

Lemon + Basil was actually one of my favorites.

Next time you’re having that bowl of vanilla ice cream give SnoSpice a sprinkle!

I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised!

You can find it here: SnoSpice . You can also find them on Amazon Prime.


Thanks for introducing this to me Brett!

If you like Moscow Mules, you’re going to love this version!

I was introduced to this drink by a friend of mine not too long ago.

I’ve had Moscow Mules in the past, but never even heard of an Apple Pie Mule.

This drink is so refreshing and really does taste like apple pie.

It’s really easy to make and with only a few ingredients.


Here’s what you’re going to need:


  • Moscow Mule Copper Mug(s)
  • Vodka: 2 Ounces (Brand of your choice)
  • Apple Cider: 2 Ounces
  • Ginger Beer: 1 Can (non-alcoholic)
  • Lime (1 small wedge) or you can use Lime Juice
  • Ground Cinnamon
  • Cinnamon Sticks
  • Apple (cut into thin slices)
  • Crushed Ice

Let’s put this all together:

  1. In a Cocktail shaker combine 2 ounces of Vodka, 2 ounces of Apple Cider and squeeze in your lime wedge…or add a squirt of lime juice.
  2. Pour mixture into your Moscow Mule Copper Mug
  3. Fill mug with Crushed Ice
  4. Sprinkle on a pinch of ground cinnamon
  5. Top off with Ginger Beer and stir.
  6. Garnish with a couple of apple slices and a cinnamon stick
