Homemade Vegan Ice Cream
So, we all know vegan ice cream is super duper expensive... Like $5 for a pint... So why not make your own? Ice cream makers aren't really that expensive (under $100, I think mine was around $60) and are really easy to use.
I found this recipe: Coconut Ice Cream (base) on vegweb.com and it's amazing, the best vegan ice cream recipe I have found so far... I decided to make chocolate and recommend halving the recipe.
For some reason vegan homemade ice cream tastes perfect right out of your ice cream maker but turns rock hard after being in the freezer. You could always leave it out to thaw on the counter for about 5 minutes if you want to have leftovers.
Makes: 2 servings (if you halve the recipe)
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: Takes about 20 minutes in the ice cream maker
