In addition to being allergic to dairy, I also have to avoid wheat (and corn and soy). So the closest thing I've had to a dessert in years is sorbet, and even then I feel guilty about all the white sugar.

I've made two of Cathe Olson's ice cream recipes so far: coconut, by hand (before I had an ice cream maker, and it really wasn't very hard to do) and chocolate...both fabulous. Not only am I not allergic to them, I don't even have to feel guilty. Just a little agave as a sweetener, all natural, full of food value...it's like a pleasant dream I would have.

(Note: I love coconut milk, but thought it would change the experience of chocolate ice cream. Not so much. It just tasted like chocolate...very rich and creamy...and I was not aware of a coconut base.)

I've been using almond milk instead of soy and it works wonderfully, I highly recommend this book for anybody who wants to get away from dairy...and I think many people might be happier and healthier (and less stuffy) if they tried it.

The person who gave this book a bad review is not up on the latest research on coconut products. Coconut is anti-carcinogenic, anti-microbial, anti-bacterial, and anti-viral. The main saturated fat that it contains, lauric acid, is also found in mother's milk and has been shown to promote brain development and bone health. Coconut fat has medium chain triglycerides which burn fat instead of storing it. The recipes in this book are delicious and healthy. I just made the cherry-vanilla ice cream using fresh cherries and it was awesome!

Wow. This book makes it so any body on any diet can have ice cream.

Use Dairy, no problem
Vegan, no problem
Gluten free, no problem
Raw food, no problem,

I have two other ice cream books and they are a lot of work. This is my favorite, I do not even get the others out now, there is no need. This book is loaned out all the time I'm so excited about it. The recipes use food not syrups for flavor. I made blueberrie and peach ice cream. 3 cups fruit and the base of either, soy, coconut, dairy, almond, rice, you choose. NO EGGS! NO SATURATED FAT! It's food, it's healthy, not guilt. Well, their is a coffee ice cream, so, you can have some guilt if you desire, I did desire with dark chocolate slivered on top.

My 6 year old daughter has a number of crazy food allergies. I had been buying coconut milk ice cream occasionally when we could make the 40 mile trek to the nearest Whole Foods. Each container was $6 and didn't make it through an entire week. Now I can make a batch of ice cream (I usually make a double batch) and it lasts several weeks. The best part is that I can create custom flavors using Cathe Olsons's basic recipe and my daughter LOVES every flavor we've tried. She says it's better than the kind we used to buy at the store, and I agree! It is rich and creamy and SO EASY!!! I've made homemade ice cream before (the dairy kind) and it was never as painless as these recipes. Very few ingredients are needed and the coconut milk is easy to find in the asian section of most groceries. I've found that using vanilla flavored almond milk paired with the coconut milk tames the coconut flavor a bit. One of the BEST cookbooks I've found for vegans or allergic people!

These recipes are so easy to make and taste great! So far I've made the blueberry frozen yogurt, the strawberry ice cream and the mango yogurt pops. I can't wait to try more! The healthy ingredients make it even more wonderful!

I'm honestly surprised at the couple of negative reviews here. Sure, most of the recipes use the same base, but it still took the author time and effort to figure out HOW to put the flavors in for spectacular results... For example, one who would try to figure out the ginger recipe at home without getting this book might simply dump a bunch of ginger powder in. WRONG!! Get the book.

I have one major pointer on huge success that will shock your carnivore friends on the taste AND TEXTURE of this vegan ice cream: USE 100% COCONUT CREAM. Get it from the Asian market, the kind that comes in a box (like soy milk). If you're looking at cans, READ THE LABELS and don't buy a can that says "60% coconut milk, water"... don't buy coconut milk that has WATER in the ingredients! This will turn to rock hard ice and not give you the creaminess you want. To sub for the "1 14 oz. can" it specifies, use 1.75 cups coconut milk instead from a box. Buy the biggest box they sell, believe me you'll be using it often once you get these recipes going... If you don't live near an Asian market, then buy the cans, let them sit in the fridge for a while, and DON'T SHAKE IT. Carefully open it, scrape out the cream, dump the water, and use a few cans to get 1.75 cups of it, what you need for the recipe.

I'm FLOORED by how EXQUISITE these recipes are. This is some of the best ice cream I've had in my life, and my friends (vegan and non-vegan) agree.
