Recipe Redux: Ice Cream

If you have been reading this blog for any length of time, you know about my obsession with ice cream. I have made 27 different flavors and there is no end in sight.

But I do love a good pudding, so I remade all of my favorite pudding snacks (chocolate with avocado and tapioca with chia seed). This is my updated vanilla pudding.
