I know, you're thinking Vegan Ice Cream? That can't be good. But give it a try. If you're lactose intolerant or just want to avoid dairy (like me) and still want a frozen treat once in a while. And if you have a really cool ice cream maker in your basement that you insist you will use this year (like me) then you need this book.
Vegan Ice Cream by Jeff Rogers is a beautiful little hard-bound book with dozens of recipes for ice cream that I never would have thought of. These recipes use a lot of nuts (cashews especially), I like knowing what goes into my food and when you make it yourself you are guaranteed a healthier treat. Some of the recipes have just three ingredients (like the nectarine ice cream, or the concord grape) and others are a bit more involved.
I haven't tried any yet but I will get that machine out this summer and I will enjoy these healthy snacks! I think I'll try the Mayan chocolate first!
