Twiss, you angel. This is wonderful. I made a single serving and used half the creme de menthe which provided a lovely mint coolness with less alcohol and sugar content. I used 98% fat free/no sugar added ice cream (vanilla was all I could get) with a 1/2 tsp of coco powder and a cup of frozen chocolate flavored coffee cubes. It all took a couple of mins in the Vita Mix and gave me a smooth, creamy and cooling summer treat. Twiss find (or invent) a VERY SPECIAL occasion and try this!!

I am an American transplanted from Dallas to Iceland by marriage to a native Icelander & I retired to become his "Kitchen Queen". We love to entertain our family & friends, so I have an eclectic collection of recipes. I especially love simple, easy-fix, flexible & make-ahead recipes - BUT also like challenging myself on occasion. I enjoy baking & food photography. I am devoted to the "More is Always Better Principle" & apply it liberally to bacon, butter & garlic. I can have ingredient issues due to availability here in Iceland & my DH is medically diet-restricted from some ingredients as well. Either situation might require me to modify a recipe, but I will do my best to be true to your recipes & fair/honest in my reviews. Mary Pat (aka twissis)
