I got a kitchenaid stand mixer and the ice cream maker attachment for Christmas this year!

I'm looking around for some plain, non-coconut tasting vanilla ice cream recipes to try out, and thought I would see if any of you have one you like? There was an old thread here, but it's 5 years old now so maybe there are new advancements in the vegan ice-cream game.

I find the Veganomicon recipes to not be very coconut-y - but they do still use coconut cream. . . I think all the soy balances it well, though!

I use one that uses tons of soy cream and xanthan gum, etc. It's in German but I can translate it if you re interested.

I like the one in Vegan Diner. It also uses xantham gum and I think it gives the ice cream a superior texture (creamy instead of frozen water-y).

Thanks, I will check all those out. And VeganinBerlin if it's not too much trouble of course I'd love to see the recipe you have.

I may have to invest in some xanthan gum. I have some lecithin I bought for making miyoko's butter.. I wonder if putting that in to emulsify would have a similar effect?

Coconut milk dominates most of the current recipes I see coming out of vegan blogs, so my favorite ice cream recipe is still the one from Vegan Diner. Even Miyoko Schinner's recipe in Homemade Vegan Pantry calls for coconut milk (she adds cashews to hers, which is kind of interesting).

The equivalent for xanthan gum would be guar gum. Lecithin keeps fat and water emulsified. Xanthan and guar keep ice crystals from forming, and so keeps the mixture from getting rock-hard, as bcakes mentioned.

Good luck!

You can always play around with this chocolate cashew-based ice cream recipe from Skye Michael Connor's Gentle Chef blog - http://thegentlechef.com/blog/?p=733

235 ml soy milk
1 tablespoon tapioka starch
2 tablespoons soy milk powder (i just use the cheap one from an asia store)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 vanilla pod
500 ml soy cream
150 g sugar
2 tablespoons agave sirup
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
and then she uses 1/4 teaspoon of a mixture that is 2 teaspoons locust bean gum/carob gum, 1 1/5 teaspoons xanthan gum, 1 1/5 teaspoons lecithin. but she says if you don't have it (I do use this mixture) to add a tablespoon of arrowroot starch instead.

directions

combine 3 tbsp of the soy milk with the starch in a small bowl. in another bowl mix the soy milk powder, gum mixture (or arrowroot starch) and salt.

scrape out the vanilla pulp (?) from the pod and put both the pulp and the pod in a large pot together with the soy cream, remaining soy milk, sugar and agave sirup. Heat it up on medium heat and while constantly stirring. When it starts to boil, take it away from the heat, take out the vanilla pod and while stirring add the starch-soy milk mixture. stir for about a minute until it thickens. now add soy milk powder-salt-starch mixture and stir for another minute. Add the vanilla extract.

Cool the ice cream base in a fridge for at least 3 hours . Once the base is very cold you beat it with a hand mixer for 2 minutes. Put it in the ice cream machine according to your machine. freeze for at least 4 hours.

do you have a vitamix or similar high speed blender? there is also a really nice version made from cashew butter where you dont need an ice cream machine.

If you don't mind using alcohol, that will also keep it from getting too hard. Two tablespoons or so.

320 g cashew butter
2 tablespoons soy milk powder (optional)
1/4 teaspoon salt
100 g sugar
50 ml agave syrup
415 g ice cubes
1/2 teaspoon xanthan

purree cashew butter, soy milk powder (if using), salt, sugar, agave syrup, vanilla & 50 g ice cubes in the mixer, mix until smooth. keep the remaining ice cubes in the freezer until usage.
add the xanthan to the mixer and mix for 30 seconds. Now add the remaining ice cubes and until smooth (the shorter, the better). Now put the ice cream in a sealed container and freeze 30 minutes - 4 hours (depending on how much it melted while mixing).
