Prickly Pear Delight

14 Sep

Cut Prickly Pear Fruit in a ColanderHey person, what did you do with all those prickly pear fruits you had left over? I hope you made something good for me.






Prickly Pear Juice

You made juice? I don’t want juice. I want something good to eat.

Pink Juice

Pink juice!? I told you I didn’t want juice. I don’t want juice of any color. Now come on person – let’s get some treats here.

Pink Prickly Pear Sorbet in Ice Cream Maker

Ice cream!? You made ice cream? Now we’re talking. Is all that for me?

Pink Prickly Pear Sorbet in a Dish

What? I only get a little dish? What are you going to do with all the rest?

What do you mean that isn’t for me? Where’s mine?

Bongo licking up the prickly pear sorbet

Mmmm! This is good! And I like this dish even better than that other dish. I don’t have to worry about breaking it.

Bongo finishing the last of his sorbet

I’m almost done with this. Can I have some more?

Scratchy eating Sorbet

Hey, wait a minute! How come Scratchy gets some? He didn’t even help get the prickly pear fruit.

    So glad you got some Bongo and, really, Scratchy only seems to have gotten the tiniest little bit, I don’t think you need to worry about that.

      Susan, Scratchy didn’t even finish his and I haven’t been able to get hold of his dish yet to finish it off. My person has been watching me too closely lately.

        Bipeds are so hard to train 😀

        Susan, I think my person would be easier to train if Scratchy wasn’t always whispering in her ear.

    It’s hard to tell what’s the prickly pear & what’s your tongue Bongo 😉

      Lola and Diane, I guess they do match, don’t they. I think it means my person needs to keep giving me the prickly pear stuff.

    Love and licks,

    soooo jealous that you go ice cream! I howled for some yesterday and didn’t get any:-(

    • Bongo

      September 14, 2012 at 6:09 pm

      Misaki, this was really a special treat. I hardly ever get ice cream. I think my person still has a stash in the freezer. I’m going to have to bug her for more.

    If you keep posting such yummy looking treats Bongo, you are going to have to share the recipes!

    • Bongo

      September 14, 2012 at 6:11 pm

      Bumpy Road, my person says she would be glad to share if you want. Do you have prickly pears in Australia? They sure do make yummy treats.

        I’ll have to ask next time I’m at the farmers’ market – all I know about them is that they used to be considered a noxious weed and at one point took over thousands of square miles of farming land and made it useless!

      • Bongo

        September 14, 2012 at 9:23 pm

        They do grow pretty easily wherever they’re planted around here.

    I see you’re wearing your vest. Is there so much thunder around?
    At least you’re getting lovely treats, to keep your mind off it.

    • Bongo

      September 14, 2012 at 6:12 pm

      Delft, we’ve had thunder almost every day for the last two months, but my person says she thinks it’s gone now. She just checked the ten day forecast and it shows sunny and no rain every day. Woo woo!

    pink ice cream! Bongo your so fortunate…and yep, I agree with dianeskitchentable…it seems like your tongue blends with the ice cream heheh 😉 x0x0x Vanilla Bean

    • Bongo

      September 14, 2012 at 6:13 pm

      Vanilla Bean, I wish I had so much of that pink ice cream that it just became part of my tongue. It was good.

    Ice cream is the best. Your person is very generous to give you some–but not too much–it could make your tummy hurt and cause some embarrassing runs–if you know what I mean.

    • Bongo

      September 14, 2012 at 9:24 pm

      Patricia, my person gave me cheese once and that’s what happened. Now she never gives it to me any more. I guess that’s why I don’t get much ice cream either.

    Ah, Bongo your person is so sweet making all these tasty things for you… It’s so nice and colorful, I bet it’s yummy too!

    • Bongo

      September 15, 2012 at 12:16 am

      Marina, it really was yummy. And those prickly pears make everything such a nice pink color.

    That looks delicious! I think I have to try making it for us 🙂

    • Bongo

      Bites and Tales, it was pretty awesome.

    Wow! That looks great 🙂

    • Bongo

      September 15, 2012 at 11:23 am

      Bassa, it was really good. I keep seeing you and Barnaby getting ice cream so I finally got some.

    I did not know that you could make anything from prickly pears..let alone ice cream! It looks tasty and I bet it was ….lucky Bongo dog ,,,

    • Bongo

      September 15, 2012 at 11:26 am

      Patreciau, it was really good. Mostly jelly and candy is made from prickly pears, but since my person could go to a tourist shop and buy that she looked online for some different recipes.

    Dude, that’s a pawesome treat. Love the color… well… actually Mom LOVES the color. Care to share the recipe??? (I’m asking for Mom, just Mom, well… actually… buddy ‘ol pal, how ’bout it for ‘ol Jetty boy???

    • Bongo

      September 15, 2012 at 11:27 am

      Hey Jet, I’ll have my person email your mom the recipe.

    • Bongo

      September 15, 2012 at 4:26 pm

      Hey Jet, my person tried to email your mom the recipe to the email address that comes through with your comments and she got a message that it couldn’t go through because the mailbox was full.

      • heyitsjethere

        September 16, 2012 at 7:07 am

        Dude, yeah, she just learned about that on friday and hmpf… you won’t believe it… she has to MANUALLY erase like 20 comments at a time. argh… here’s her personal one. Please thank your Mom for us. 🙂

      • Bongo

        September 16, 2012 at 3:20 pm

        That’s a drag Jet. I’ll have my person send the recipe right over.

    *drools* Awww….Bongo….I love sorbe and ice cream!!!! and this prickly pear sorbe looks soooo delicious! OMD! Scratchy enjoys tasting, too! You’re locky family Bongo! 🙂
    I now know that Prickly Pear doesn’t have so much flavor and taste, so what about the nutrition of the Prickly Pear Fruit? Is it good for health like lots of polyphenol?

    • Bongo

      September 15, 2012 at 11:32 am

      Kevin, that ice cream is really good. My person says prickly pear is good for health. One of the recipes she found is for prickly pear health water – which is just the juice frozen into ice cubes and then put into a glass of water. Apparently it has lots of chromium and vanadium which suppresses appetite and also potassium and minerals. This is far too technical for me.

      • eripanwkevin

        September 16, 2012 at 12:42 am

        Thanks so much for the information of nutritions, Bongo! 🙂

      • Bongo

        September 16, 2012 at 3:12 pm

        Anytime Kevin. Just call me nutrition expert Bongo. Anything that tastes good must be good for you – right?

    Just wanted to hop on by and see how y’all are doin’. Hope y’all have a wonderful and safe weekend!

    Wish I’d had some ice cream…any kind, any color.

    yummy!!! That looks good…. Ginger says take scratchy to the prickly pear patch and throw scratchy in… muwahahaahah

    • Bongo

      September 16, 2012 at 5:26 pm

      Ginger, my person probably won’t let me do that because she’d be the one picking all the pricklers out of Scratchy.

    September 17, 2012 at 1:06 am

    Hey, Bongo, did you left some icecream for me? Looks delicious 🙂

    • Bongo

      September 17, 2012 at 3:37 pm

      Angels Whisper, my person kept some of the ice cream from me and put it in the freezer. If you come over I’m sure I could talk her into getting it out.

    You seem to enjoy that prickly pink handmade ice cream (also do Scratchy).

    • Bongo

      September 17, 2012 at 3:41 pm

      YouKai, that prickly pink ice cream was good. And fortunately my person got rid of all the pricklers before she made the ice cream.
