Banana "soft-serve" won't cut it.
Enter: Hannah "Queen of Desserts" Kaminsky. I got her second cookbook (Vegan Desserts) for the ice cream recipes and the meringue. I demanded an ice cream maker for this cookbook alone.
What Hannah excels at is that she doesn't just make "traditional" ANYTHING. It's exotic and different and pushes you (and your taste buds) to explore a whole new world of eating. So unlike "The Vegan Scoop", "Lick It" and "Vice Cream" which has (soy milk, coconut milk, and cashew cream as bases) but the recipes all follow the same path:
Vanilla - add extract, sugar, milk, blend, cool, churn
Strawberry - add berries, sugar, milk, blend, cool, churn
(and so on)
Hannah makes French Vanilla ice cream. Not your basic Cookie Dough, but Cookie Dough Monster. Not just Strawberry but Strawberry and Lemon Curd. and so on and so forth. Its the simple tweaks on classics, and things you'd never think about (watermelon sorbet? heck, yeah! (never would have thought of it). Banana Pudding? Blueberry Muffin? Cinnamon Graham? Check,check and check.
I've now made several recipes, and they are VERY easy, and pantry friendly (things that you may not always have on hand would be Agar, Vanilla Beans/Paste (Necessity for the French Vanilla), Citric Acid (optional).) that I can re-call off hand.
Most of these equal a quart of ice cream so the cost of making it vs. buying a store brand is comparable (for fruit etc).
The ice creams I've made are:

The recipes are great; my 12-year-old has done most of the "cooking" and I'm pleased that the directions are easy for her to follow.
If you have a modestly stocked vegan pantry, there isn't any need to hunt down special ingredients - I don't shop any specialty/gourmet/health-food stores and was able to find everything easily, if I didn't already have it.
The pictures are beautiful and mouthwatering, causing my kids to drool for hours over "what we're going to make next"...
One note: This IS a dessert book. We all realize ice-cream is dessert before purchasing it, right? Sugar can be vegan and we vegans like our desserts just as much as the rest of the world.
Whether you think you'll be making ice cream every week or just once in a rare while, this is a valuable and informative book to have - and the pictures are great, just for browsing. I can't say enough about Hannah's book, I love almost everything she creates anyway, but I think ice cream has to be at the top of my list!
I have only made two recipes. The first I made was the French Vanilla and it was so creamy and decadent. Talk about indulgence! It makes every other vegan vanilla ice cream out there taste boring in comparison. This will definitely be a repeat. The other recipe I made was Double Chocolate Fudge Chunk and this was amazing! It had chunks of fudge in every bite which was painless to whip up and the actual chocolate ice cream had great flavor depth (Hannah never fails in that department).
I'm excited to try more recipes and am looking forward to keeping cool with this book this summer.
You might want to reduce the amount of sugar you use as they tend to be very (too) sweet.
You get both classics and more original recipes, recommended!
I am partial to the recipes using fresh fruit and veggies since it is summer and these things are in season: Fresh Corn Ice Cream (which I made, and was stupendous), Blueberry Balsamic, Rose Petal Ice Cream, and BEET--yes, BEET ice cream, which I can't wait to try, Paradise PLUMB (I need to run out and get some fresh plumbs, this one looks unbelievable), the list goes on and on and on of amazing flavors. I also made the Peanut Butter Bombshell, which delivered as promised. (I still love more traditional flavors as well.) French Toast Ice Cream. Birthday Cake Ice Cream (made with FRESH cupcakes!!) Rosemary Pecan. UNBELIEVABLE.
Just buy the book. You won't be sorry. Or, you might be. I am now addicted to making ice cream. Hannah's stunning pictures of each recipe don't help...
