She uses a wide assortment of nuts, too, which I adore. I especially appreciate her technique of grinding the nuts into the ice cream rather than squeezing out the nut meats and discarding them the way most recipes have you do. Leaving them in the mix makes your ice cream more delicious and more nutritious!
Another fantastic facet of Kris' recipes is that she doesn't just rely on soy milk to make her non-dairy treats--instead, she features coconut milk, raw cashews, and even offers up hemp milk recipes as an alternative to soy. So tasty! Lots of people are allergic to soy, and it's a rare vegan/dairy-free book that allows readers to skip the soy in favor of other non-dairy ingredients. As she suggests, another luxurious alternative would be macadamia nuts. Betcha those would be magnificent in her Tiramisu Sandwiches! Yet another delicious idea from Kris.
Excellent job and a great addition to the vegan baking repertoire.
First I made the Strawberry Italiano sandwiches which were a strawberry balsamic swirl ice cream sandwiched between to shortbread cookies. I didn't think the swirl would turn out because anytime I have to "swirl" something in, I always tend to over swirl it and end up just mixing it in. However, I'm happy to say that my swirl was perfect. The shortbread cookies don't have a lot of flavor so the ice cream is definitely the star in this one. I wasn't sure how the balsamic was going to play out in this, but you don't taste it at all.
The second ice cream sandwich I made was the Pumpkin Snickerdoodle sandwiches which are pumpkin ice cream sandwiched between two snickerdoodle cookies. Oh yeah, these are my favorite ice cream sandwiches ever. When you pair the pumpkin ice cream with the sugary cinnamon cookies, you get one amazing treat. I'm not gonna lie, it took all my willpower not to dip a cookie into the churning ice cream while it was freezing. Then, when the moment came where I could actually eat one... I ate two. And I've had one just about every night since. These are amazing and perfect for the fall.
This is a great recipe book to have on hand if you have an ice cream machine. Whether you are vegan or not, it doesn't matter, it's awesome.Read more ›
She was over the moon at the variety of offerings on tap. The full color pictures on what felt like every page intrigued her, and she couldn't wait to start making them. It is summer, after all, and what's better on a hot day than some ice cream? I'll admit that some of the flavors had me intrigued, as well. Cake batter ice cream? Earl Grey ice cream? Orange zest shortbread? There were so many amazing options in the book that I didn't know where to start. Fortunately, my daughter did.
I appreciated that the ingredients used were very approachable. Even my mom had them all in her pantry, with the exception of arrowroot starch for the recipe my daughter wanted to make. Some recipes called for soy milk, while others asked for coconut, hemp, or other milk alternatives, which makes the book that much more accessible to those who have a variety of food intolerances or dislikes. I made a few recipes from this book, and the coconut milk ice creams by far turned out the best and closest to "real" ice cream - my guess at least partly because of the higher fat content (but it's healthy fat!) in coconut milk.
Because this is a vegan cookbook, there were no eggs in either the cookies or ice cream. As successful as my ice creams were - including when I riffed and turned a vanilla bean ice cream into a cherry vanilla ice cream - my cookie attempt wasn't quite as successful.Read more ›
