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.
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.
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.Read more ›
