Yummy Recipes that could fool non-vegans
on 14 August 2009
I bought this book because I love, or rather loved, ice-cream before I realised I was lactose intolerant. And after many years of only having swedice glace (lovely but plain), boooja booja (tasty but expensive) or sorbet (not ice cream!!) this book is a welcome relief.
It has a huge range of recipes that will cater for most tastes. Chapter includes classic, fruity, asian, caribbean, healthy and novelty flavours.
My parter who is not lactose intolerant agrees that the recipes I've made (no less than 6 in the 2 weeks I've owned it) do have a texture and taste similar to non vegan ice cream (where there is non vegan equivalent).
My favourite so far is honeydew (as in honeydew melon).
Just 2 points to mention here:
All recipes rely on the use of an ice cream maker, unless you are skilled enough to make ice cream without the ice crystals.
For those of you who would like a non vegan version of strawberry ice cream there is NO strawberry recipe in here. There is fig, banana (yummy), orange (yummy), pumpkin (next on the list to try), star fruit but no strawberry :(
But the many other recipes more than make for this. Buy it whether your vegan or not.
