"Soy Dream" Cream

The weather has been so nice and warm lately. I've noticed the ice cream joints around town have all been packed this week. I love ice cream, it's my summer-time weakness (and the reason I gained a whopping 50 lbs with my first pregnancy!!), so I've been left wondering how I'll make it through the summer.


Double Chocolate-Chocolate Chip "Soy Dream" Cream, is how I plan on making it through. Oh my, this stuff was seriously good!! I used Robin Robertson's recipe for Double Chocolate Non Dairy Ice Cream from Vegan Planet. I used vanilla Soy Dream, and added about 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips in the last few minutes in the ice cream freezer. Choco-licious!!! By the way, yes I know that Hain makes Soy Dream Ice Cream, but it's so fun and satisfying to make it yourself, plus I like to be able to control the amount of sugar I add.


For dinner, at Mairin's request, we had lentil tacos again. These things are so good. We all really like them a lot. Actually, this was the recipe Mairin requested we turn in for her Preschool Class Cookbook (probably the only vegan recipe that will make it's way into the book!!)

OMG YUM!! I have serious ice cream maker envy. I keep looking on craigslist and thrift stores for one but I haven't scored yet. One day...

Keeta - My very sweet aunt-in-law bought our family an ice-cream maker for Christmas (before we became vegan) because Stella can't have commercially processed ice cream because of peanut cross contamination.
