Vegan Ice Cream

Lavender Ice Cream

vegan lavender ice creamLavender blossoms give this ice cream a unique, delicate flavor. I love it with a mild-flavored cake like pound cake. It’s also delicious topped with berries. This is one of my most-requested recipes. Recipe and photo courtesy of Cathe Olson, from Lick It! Creamy, Dreamy Vegan Ice Creams Your Mouth Will Love.*

Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream

Vegan pumpkin spice ice cream

You can cook a fresh pumpkin for this recipe if you like, but canned works just fine. You can also substitute puréed sweet potato or squash for the pumpkin. Contributed by Cathe Olson from Lick It!

Fresh Fruit Sorbets (no machine needed!)

Berry sorbet

Icy, refreshing sorbets make a perfect finale to spicy dishes or strong-flavored grilled foods. And they are easy to make with out an ice-cream machine. Generally, recipes for fruit sorbets call for making a sugar-and-water syrup, but for added ease and flavor, I prefer using fruit juice concentrate instead. An added benefit is that if you use fruit-only (and preferably organic) juice concentrate, you can avoid refined sugar altogether. Orange juice, apple juice, and pineapple juice concentrates have no added sugar. more→

Vegan Banana Ice Cream

This is just like soft-serve ice cream.  You must use a food processor, not a blender for this. Depending on the size of the food processor, you may have to make this in two batches. Recipe contributed by Miyoko Schinner. Make sure to view the related video demonstrating how to make this delicious vegan ice cream. more→
