Mix it Up: Sundae Bar

A sundae bar is a fun and delicious way to celebrate any occasion. Birthday parties, summer bbqs, or even family dinners, watch everyone’s face fill with joy as they build their own ice cream sundaes!

The rivalry of who created the first ice cream sundae dates back to the 1970’s, between Two Rivers, Wisconsin and Ithaca, New York. Two Rivers claims a customer asked for a bowl of ice cream with syrup at a soda fountain, and then it became a regular on the menu for a nickel. Because it was too cheap, they decided to only serve it on Sundays. As it became a hit with customers, they changed the name to Sundaes and served it daily. Ithaca claims Reverend John Scott was served an ice cream with syrup and a cherry on a Sunday at a soda fountain, loved it, and named the dish Cherry Sunday.

The secret recipe:

  1. Choose your ice creams. Scoop your favourite flavour (or flavours!) of vegan ice cream into your bowl.
  2. Choose your toppings. Sprinkle your favourite toppings into your bowl. Anything goes – think sprinkles, candies, fruit, coconut shred, crumbled cookies, chunks of cookie dough, crumbled cake, jam, and Nutty Caramel Chocolate Sauce.
  3. Enjoy!

 Tip + tricks:

  • To set up your sundae bar, prepare your toppings in advance and separate in bowls. When it’s time to serve, put out the toppings with ice cream tubs, bowls and spoons, and let everyone prepare their own!
