When I got an email from Deanna, Reagan, and Serena saying I had been accepted to The Recipe Redux, I pretty much jumped up and down with joy! Some of my favorite bloggers like Kylie (Imma Eat That) and Lindsay (The Lean Green Bean) are part of the Redux group, and I can’t wait to get to know some of the other awesome bloggers too!
As the first and only recipe challenge founded by registered dietitians,The Recipe ReDux is focused on taking delicious dishes, keeping them delicious, but making them better for you. I think I can get on board with that goal!
Each month has a theme, and this month’s theme is: Good Luck Foods. I was originally somewhat stumped by this theme, but I looked to some friends and family to get my creative juices flowing. One idea that people kept returning to was champagne! Of course!
Drinking champagne on New Year’s Eve is a pretty standard tradition for people to cheers to the New Year, and my family is no different.
I don’t drink much, and I don’t really like the taste of many alcoholic drinks, but I am definitely a fan of champagne.
I thought it would be fun to dress up the usual champagne glass with some strawberries and mini ice cream scoops, making an ice cream float! It’s New Year’s Eve after all and we need to celebrate! Let’s combine dessert with drinks and cheers to that.
What good luck food(s) will you be serving for New Year’s Eve or Day this year?
- small package of fresh strawberries
- pint of good quality vanilla ice cream
- bottle of champagne
- other supplies: champagne glasses, melon baller
- Slice strawberries into quarters and add to the bottom of the champagne glasses.
- Using the melon baller, add three small scoops of vanilla ice cream on top of the strawberries.
- Add champagne.
- Serve with a spoon.
*If you don’t want the champagne to froth up as much as in my photos, add the ice cream after pouring the champagne.
