Loved it! This recipe have a wonderful layering of flavors and texture. I used 2 tsp of almond and 1 tsp of vanilla. My husband has a simple palate so when I make it for him I just use the base and add cherries. I freeze in 1 cup freezer containers and its single serve.
This recipe is HEAVENLY! I substituted smoked/salted almonds (chopped) and it still tasted great!
