Honey-Balsamic-Drizzled Vanilla Soft Serve with Pepitas
Serves 1

1 small bowl of ice
2.1784-second swirl of vanilla soft serve
drizzle of honey
dash of balsamic vinegar
a few shakes of pepitas

Dispense vanilla soft serve on a bowl filled with ice.

Carefully dodge people holding trays as you speed-walk to the salad bar dressings. Working quickly so ice cream doesn’t melt, drizzle honey over soft serve and add a splash of balsamic vinegar. Shake some pepitas over ice cream.

    In ingredients, I think you accidentally wrote “ice” instead of “ice cream”–love the idea though!

    Thanks Joanna! Actually it is meant to say “ice” – it’s a little trick to keep the soft serve from melting when it sits in the bowl, and adds a nice frosty touch to the presentation!
