Since I can't just sit around crying into my heart shaped bowls that the newVegan Ben and Jerry's flavors haven't come to my local stores yet, I decided to make some chocolate chip cherry ice cream tonight.
In blender, I combined 1 can coconut milk, 1 bag frozen cherries, about 1 cup soy milk, 1 tsp vanilla, and maple syrup to taste until it was smooth.
Then I poured that into my Cuisinart ice cream maker and let it go for about 15 minutes until it was thick and creamy. It made 3 bowls of ice cream that we topped with Enjoy Life chocolate chips.
I used to think the ice cream maker was kind of a silly gadget to have, but I've made some really amazing ice creams in the last year or so. This is maybe my favorite, though. Especially now that we live in a small town with fewer options for vegan ice creams, it's earning it's keep for sure.
I wrote a children's book, How Our Vegan Family Celebrates, to help vegans and vegan allies know how to include vegans in their celebrations and give affirmation to vegan kids who may feel alone. The book goes through holidays throughout the year and has a section at the back with parent tips!
