ONE of the BIGGEST things I miss being lactose intolerant, and or dairy free, is Ice Cream.
I LOVE ICE CREAM!!
All the chocolate, moose tracks, coffee, fruity yummyness of it all.
But no longer do I have to stare into the ice cream section of the grocery aisle and dream, now I can make it home all by myself!
Vegan Ice Cream by Jeff Rogers is like a little sweet dessert treat dropped from above.
Simple, easy recipes that just about any home lactose intolerant, dairy-free, vegan cook can follow.
Previously published as Vice Cream, and no fully revised, Vegan Ice Cream is packed with over 90 delicious recipes, including raw ice cream and sauces. Beautiful pictures of many of these delicious treats are found throughout the book, along with a Basics chapter at the beginning of the book that takes you from beginner Vice Cream maker to pro in to no time.
The Basics chapter is where I camped out for awhile. Having never made ‘vice cream‘ myself or even regular homemade ice cream, I knew I needed to read up on all the basics before getting started, and I’m glad I did. I found and highlighted quite a few tips and techniques that made making my first batch of vegan ice cream a tasty work of art. Tips on what kind of flavoring and ingredients to use is a must read if you want your vegan ice cream to turn out just right.
For my review, I stuck with an easy one.. Chocolate.. plain and simple
To do this right, and in the hopes that I would be making more in the very near future, I went ahead and purchased a Cusianart Ice Cream maker from Amazon. I was surprise at how reasonable the price was AND how easy it was to use.
Following the instructions carefully, I mixed all the ingredients together and placed the blender in the freezer for about an hour or so. Once the vice cream was ready, I poured it into the prepared ice cream maker and turned it on.
In no more than 25 minutes we had this amazingly delicious treat!!!
Does it have a different taste than regular ice cream? Yes, but not in a bad way. My husband, who isn’t dairy free, even enjoyed it. I mean it’s chocolate for goodness sake. It tasted amazing and has only encouraged me to make more!
Jeff Rogers Vegan Ice Cream is easy to use and a must have for ‘vice cream’ lover like myself.
