Abracadabra Ice Cream and an Apple Butter Egg White Breakfast
Posted Oct 07 2012 6:57pm
This morning was a really slow one. I ended up sleeping in until 10, which NEVER happens. But we were out late celebrating our friend Jeff’s birthday and after the 6 miler, I can understand how I might have been a bit exhausted.
When I was looking into the cabinets for a direction to go with I found the left over egg white from the Chocolate Oreo Pie I made yesterday and some unopened Apple Butter. And BAM! Breakfast was born.
What’s in this masterpiece is 2 egg whites, 1 Tablespoon of Apple Butter, 1 Slice of American Cheese and obviously a slice of bread. It was really quite simple. The Apple Butter adds a sweetness to the sandwich that was really unexpected, but in a good way. I haven’t experimented with Apple Butter too much in the past, but after this experience, it is making it our of the fridge more often.
After devouring the sandwich, I still wasn’t satisfied, so I mixed up a protein shake with Vanilla ALmond Milk and Chocolate Protein Powder.
Brent and I then brought the puppies out on a little adventure. We swung by a nearby school to play fetch with them, but after about 10 throws they were donezo. It was in the 90′s today here. WOOF.
So we gathered up the pups and headed off to ABRACADABRA ! It’s an Ice Cream shop located in Kissimmee. There is also a sister location in Clermont, FL . As I was talking to the owner, he was saying that the concept for this place was developed by a Chef in Utah and the idea is actually a nation wide concept.
But what is the concept exactly?
Well, you pick out all of your ingredients for an ice cream flavor. They also have some suggestions for you. I chose the Apple Pie Ice Cream and Brent had a Magic Mix. They put a liquid batter I guess you would call it, into a large metal bowl. Throw in the apple pie mixings, and the zap it with Liquid Nitrogen! Cooooollll.
The amount of smoke coming off of it was a crazy amount more, but my camera wouldn’t focus. Oreo actually started barking at it as it was rolling off the counter at her.
The options here are absolutely endless, which I think is the best part. Let your mind wander and come up with your ideal flavor of ice cream and you can make it come to life at this place.
If you for some reason don’t LOVE the ice cream flavor that you got, they will gladly take it back for you and mix up another one for you. Brent and I LOVED our ice creams. Arguably some of the best I have ever had.
They are extremely dog friendly as well. LOVE those places As soon as we rolled up with our crew, Oreo got in her few barks and the owner literally ran up to the two with dog bones and a huge bowl of water. They had a great little time. I had to share a bit of my ice cream with them too. Such a sucker.
We were also noticing that they really seemed to invite everyone to come out and just hang out. I can’t tell you how hospitable the owner was. He was really on top of making sure we were loving the ice cream and the puppies were happy. He runs the place with his family and they also have pizza on the menu!
In the back, they have a fenced in area for kids to run around and enjoy their ice cream.
I really just got the sense that the owner loved what he did and really just wanted people to be happy. And he definitely did that. If you are coming down to Fl for vacation and get to disney, I would suggest popping over to Abracadabra. It is a nice little escape and you can’t get ice cream like this just anywhere. If you live in the area, just do it
For the remainder of the day, I caught up on some more sleep and it seems pizza is on the menu for tonight. Casual, lovely Sunday.
What’s your favorite flavor of ice cream? Pumpkin? Apple Pie? Fish Food? Or just the standard chocolate and vanilla?
My go to is cookie dough. Always have and always will. It’s my no fail. But I love trying new flavors just to spice things up!
