The only thing better than one dessert is two desserts!

We think our Cookies ‘n’ Cream Cupcake is pretty great on its own – a moist chocolate and vanilla cupcake, with light, whipped vanilla “buttercream” icing swirled with decadent double chocolate chip cookies pieces. But the bonus is there’s a mini double chocolate chip cookie that sits on top! (YUM). We place each of these bonus cookies on top of every Cookies ‘n’ Cream Cupcake by hand, with love.nf-cupcake-cookiesncream2

All of our cupcakes are baked in our nut-free bakery, and, of course, are also free of eggs, dairy, preservatives, artificial colour, and refined sugars.

You can find our cupcakes at many amazing retailers, including Loblaws Maple Leaf Gardens, Metro in Liberty Village, The Big Carrot, Tsaa Tea Shop, and Nature’s Emporium, or order directly from us and pick up at our office at 234 Canarctic Drive.


There’s a good reason we all scream for ice cream!

Ice cream’s origin dates back as far as the second century. Alexander the Great enjoyed snow and ice flavoured with honey and nectar, and Nero Claudius Caesar loved his snow treats flavoured with fruit and juices. Marco Polo returned to Italy from his travels with a recipe that resembled sherbet, and in England, Charles I enjoyed a similar treat called “Cream Ice.” The recipe has evolved throughout history, and we’re continuing to mix it up with our fresh and simple creation!

banana-ice-cream

The secret recipe:

  1. Freeze your ripe bananas. This frozen fruit will be the base of your ice cream! No dairy, no gluten, no added sugars. Slice or break into small even pieces and place in the freezer in an airtight container for at least 2 hours, or overnight if possible. 1 large banana makes about 2 servings.
  2. Blend or process your frozen bananas. Take your frozen bananas from the freezer and transfer into a blender or food processor until completely smooth. You might need to stop to wipe down the sides to make sure it’s all mixed in evenly.
  3. Add your dough into the mix. When your bananas are completely smooth, now is the time to add your cookie dough chunks into the blender or food processor. Blend for a couple of seconds only to mix it throughout your bananas.
  4. Freeze until solid (or don’t!). Transfer your mixture into an airtight container and place it in the freezer until it’s solid. If you just can’t wait, you can enjoy it right out of the blender or food processor as a soft serve consistency.
  5. Enjoy!

Tips + tricks:

  • Sub out some or all of the bananas for frozen mangos!
  • Try different doughs! We make a gluten-free chocolate chip, double chocolate, and walnut brownie batter, and nut-free organic ginger molasses, chocolate chip, and double chocolate.
  • Try different sweets! Swap the dough for crumbled cake or loaf.

Mix it Up is a series we created to share new and creative ways to enjoy our sinfully delicious sweets! Take a picture of the cookie dough ice cream you make, and post and tag us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest so we can see your delicious creations, try them ourselves, and share with others too.

From the outside, it just looks like a delicious Chocolate Cupcake. But bite into it and experience the creamy vanilla surprise!

People have been wondering how we get the fillings inside our cupcakes, and we’re finally sharing our sweet secret. Our incredible team scoops out the middles of the cupcakes, and pipes in the fillings into each cupcake by hand (that’s a LOT of scooping and piping!). But no one complains – in fact it’s everyone’s favourite thing to do, because after we scoop all the delicious cupcake cores, we eat them! Most enjoy them plain, some enjoy them with icing, and others love them with fruit.
