Celebrate National Ice Cream Day with These Delicious Ice Cream Recipes!
I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! We may have missed out on the World Ice cream Day on June 8th (yes there is indeed such a thing!), but July 17th 2011 is National Ice Cream Day in the United States of America. So why don’t we all indulge and have some delicious vegan ice cream and make the most of this day! Try out the different flavours given below! It is better to use a nut base for raw ice creams, or coconut milk as compared to soy milk.
For the coconut milk base you will need:
- 2 cans organic coconut milk (refrigerated overnight)
- 1 cup Turbinado (What's this?)
- 1/2 tbsp organic alcohol-free vanilla
- 1/4 cup organic coconut oil
This makes a great basic vanilla ice cream on its own. To create different flavours, try some of the ideas below:
Chocolate - Add 4 -5 tablespoons raw cocoa powder, raw carob powder or both.
Mocha - Follow the directions for the chocolate ice cream, but replace 2 tablespoon of the chocolate with 1 tablespoon of instant coffee granules and add 1/4 cup of strong brewed coffee.
Oreo - Hand mix 1 cup coarsely crumbled Newman O’s into basic mixture or into a chocolate or mocha mixture.
Strawberry, Blueberry, Cherry - Add 1/2 cup of fruit, fresh or frozen and reduce sugar to 1/2 cup. Hand mix 1/2 cup of the chopped fruit into the mixture after it is blended and just before you place it in the canister.
Chocolate Chip - After blending the main mixture, hand mix in 1 cup of vegan chocolate chips.
Mint Chocolate Chip - Add 1 1/2 - 2 teaspoons peppermint extract to the main mixture and then hand mix in 1 cup of vegan chocolate chips. You could also add a few drops of natural green food coloring.
