Time to change things up here a bit, put the turkeys aside and add new types of:
that you can serve this Thanksgiving, whip up for your kids, or just for yourself. See? A little bit for everyone. I’m a giver. These are so simple to make, it will make you wanna slap your momma. (Not sure what that expression is supposed to mean, really). I don’t want to slap my mom, nor do I want you to slap yours… Moving along.
These Fresh Fruit Cornucopias are so simple and easy to assemble:
Cornucopias are for lovers.
- 5 gluten free ice cream cones
- 1/4 c. dairy free chocolate chips, melted
- 1 c. fresh fruit and berries
- 1/3 c. store-bought dairy free whip cream recipe (like So Delicious)
- basil or mint for garnish, optional
- Coat the tops of the ice cream cones with thin layer of melted chocolate. Allow to cool on wax paper (you can freeze to set quicker).
- Stuff cornucopias with 1-2 Tbsp. dairy free whipped cream, add the fresh berries and fruit, and top with basil or mint.
These little stunners make a great and light dessert for anyone. Plus, these cornucopias come with an edible, built-in bowl. What more can you ask for? They are just too adorable for words. So much so that I have no more words here so I will leave you on a pictorial note:
À La Vegan
What camera and lens/es do you use, if you don’t mind me asking? Beautiful photos.
Honestly, these photos were taken with a basic digital camera. I have since then minorly upgraded to a very basic Nikon starter camera with no fancy lens what-so-ever 🙂

OMG I *LOVE* this idea. You could stuff it with vegan ice cream too… It’s super easy and yet looks spectacular. Perfect for a dinner party. I will definitely do this. I pinned this on Pinterest, by the way XX
This is so cute!
HOLY HELL. Gluten-free ice cream cones? I know what I’m going to search for tomorrow! Then I’m going to coat ’em in chocolate and fill ’em with banana soft serve. Thanks, in advance, for expanding my waistline. You wench.
Oh it is so my pleasure you dirty ho! 🙂 hehehe This is fun.
Love these! And I just blogged about some of your Halloween ideas I used!
I just read it (thanks for the shout out) and absolutely loved what you did with that food–another genius feast by you, Jenny! xo
what a great idea Cara!!! I love the cones, they look so cute and festive.
Hi Amey!!! Thank you 🙂
Your biggest fan!
What’s up with all this momma bashing? 🙂 No, seriously, you know I love you more than my luggage! These look so yummy. I’m going to have to make them. I’m sad that I won’t be there to spend your big day with you and Greg won’t be there either 🙁 I’ll blow out a few candles for you. Listen for the ring ring. XOXOXOX
I’m sad you won’t be here either 🙁 Can’t wait to get that early morning phone call, mom 🙂 I’m expecting you to be the first so don’t disappoint… xoxo
AWWW! Now THESE are adorable Cara! super creative — AGAIN!
Someone special’s bday is coming up…..TOMORROW! Gettin’ excited? 🙂 XOXO
I just made myself a cake 🙂 I’m trying to keep a positive attitude–Greg won’t be here which is really sad (in fact, he’s been gone for a month now and won’t return for *another* month due to business). I honestly feel a little lonely 🙁 But I’m always excited to celebrate ME once a year so it won’t be too bad! You coming here tomorrow to deliver that cake??? hehehe
So cute. I didn’t even know they made GF cones. Just as well really because that gives me more room for ice cream! I have Cybele’s book here on the bed with me, looking for a pie crust for Banoffee Pie. I don’t even know what that is but toffee and bananas sound awesome. So what is this thing you’ve got with Danny DeVito anyway?
Danny DeVito. snickering. You know, I actually saw him and Rhea Pearlman at Knott’s Berry Farm, years back. It’s no joke–that dude is short! 🙂 And Banoffee Pie? I don’t know what that is either but why do I feel like I must eat it now as well???
I’m tripling the recipe. On faith alone. <3 <3 <3
Bon Jovi was right, we *are* half way there; living on a prayer 🙂
Ok, these are the cutest yet! LOVE (and want the vegan whipped cream recipe, frankly; I’ll have to find that book). I have to tell you THANK YOU again for the soap giveaway – I am loving this soap. And I was right about the lemongrass ginger scent being the perfect thing (for me) to wake to! YAY for giveaways (and yay for winning!).
Oh I am glad to hear that you received it! I was just thinking about you today and was going to email just to make sure it was sent–YAY! So happy you are satisfied with your choice too, Sarah. xox
Oh…it’s a movie? Here I was talking literally…;)
Don’t confuse the blonde now, GiGi!
These are so beautiful that I want to throw my mamma from the train!
Thank the Lord someone knows this movie! 🙂 hahaha
another awesomely unique creation! I just ordered more gf cones (LOVE them!!) that I LOVE to fill with a coating of chocolate – I will have to reverse it and make some of these, YUM!
Which cones do you buy Kris?
I think I’ve had the Goldbaum kind before, but I think it was a large one, like a waffle cone almost? there’s an organic brand I can’t remember right now?? (might be let’s do organic?)
Ooooohh a waffle cone?? Sign me up for that! There is a local dairy and gluten free bakery over here that sells the Goldbaum’s brand, and it wasn’t until writing this post that I realized they have a wider variety! Must buy these now…
Very pretty! They look super yummy and simple!
Indeed, my friend, indeed.
Oh My Goodness!!! Adorable!!! GF Cones???
You really are the Indiana Jones of Amazing Food!!!!
Now I have the theme song in my head. HA! Is there any way that I can get that to play as I run errands around town??? How funny yet amazing would that be?! 🙂
Cuuuuute! Berries + mint + a crunchy ice cream cone… sign me up for that.
But you know, you could use these as feathers on a turkey… or perhaps one as a beak on a HUGE turkey with the berries as a hidden treat. I’m still seeing turkeys everywhere!
Oh no, Nikki! You have the bird flu like I had. hahaha.
Those are lovely! Fresh fruit makes a great dessert.
Off topic – movie…Drive Me Crazy. Watching last night and betting that you’re a fan 😀
HA!! I saw this movie in the theater–I remember it quite well because I was in college and my friends and I thought we were so cool that we skipped our class to watch this. I have only seen it a few times since (and I do remember really liking it!) however, do I admit it now that I have been an avid watcher of “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” for a long time? Like, my boyfriend and I get excited at 8am when it comes on, kind of avid? hehehe
i haven’t had an icecream cone in ages! i remember my favorite were the ones coated with chocolate. i love everything about this, and makes me want to get the allergen free handbook just to get the whipped cream recipe!
That book is pretty awesome! It includes all things vegan and gluten free with beautiful pics! I haven’t used it that much as I should but I was really impressed with the whip cream recipe! It was light and fluffy, just like the real thing. Get it! Get it! 🙂
These are Great!!!
Can’t wait to try these…I think you might have to make these for me when I get back home.
Can’t wait to see all the other items you were talking about.
I had a feeling you would like them! A dessert right up your alley 🙂 xo!!!!
