Dairy-Free Ice Cream Cookbook
Now you can make dairy-free healthy ice cream at home. Instead of cow’s milk, the recipes ask for unsweetened coconut milk. You can also make your ice cream 100% vegan by using agar agar powder instead of gelatin. Put away the sugar; honey, agave and liquid stevia is used instead. My favorite ice cream is Peanut Butter & Jelly (I use raspberry jam), which tastes like cool and creamy sweet peanut butter with raspberry sauce swirled in. It’s totally decadent. I also like Orange Cream and Coffee. The Vanilla ice cream wasn’t very exciting and the Cinnamon Ice Cream was too spicy so I wouldn’t recommend those two recipes. I haven’t made that many of the numerous ice cream flavors (there’s 43), because I keep making the PB&J since it’s my favorite.
The Ice Dream cookbook by chef and healthy cooking coach Rachel Albert-Matesz also provides recipes for sugar-free and dairy-free sauces like Hot Fudge Sauce; there’s compotes, cookies and more. Even though these desserts are much healthier than the typical dairy treats, don’t overindulge because they’re not calorie-free.
