Vegan Ice Cream by Jeff Rogers

Don't let the title intimidate you! "Vegan Ice Cream: Over 90 Sinfully Delicious Dairy-Free Delights" by Jeff Rogers is not just for vegans! Personally, I was drawn to this title because for my entire life I have been allergic to dairy in all forms. Ice cream, milk, cheese, etc. I can tolerate tiny amounts of each, but I have never been able to fully enjoy ice cream! I've always had to settle for a tofu or rice substitute, and let's be honest here...most just don't measure up!

Jeff Rogers has created a recipe book with over 90 amazingly delicious dairy-free "ice cream" recipes! I was super excited about this book and eagerly thumbed through it's pages! Some of the recipes looked a bit daunting to me. For example, some of the recipes call for Vanilla Beans split and scraped, but if you read the "Basic" section at the beginning of the book, the author explains that you can just as easily use natural vanilla flavoring. I thought it was interesting to note that he suggests using extracts that do not contain alcohol as alcohol can had an adverse effect on the ice cream. I also think it's interesting that a lot of the bases for the ice creams are ground up nuts and cashews. That is something I never would have thought of adding to ice cream!

The ice cream flavors in this book look absolutely amazing! Some of my personal favorites included in this book are Apple Strudel, Banana Blueberry, Raw Black Forest and Blueberry Peach.

I rate this book as 5 stars! I received this book for free from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion.
