Oh yes Hannah's e-book, it's on my want list, that Birthday Cake Ice Cream sounds like something I fully expect Stephanie Plum to eat.

I mostly use the Vcon recipes (the vanilla is an old standby and the chocolate is the best chocolate ice cream I've had, vegan or not). I do a lot of my own mix ins like berry sauce, caramel sauce, chocolate cookies etc. I've also used the ones on Vegan Dad's website and have tried some of Hannah's, which I was impressed with but my computer was wiped and the link in my email is too old to work, so I might have to get it again.

Yes! I love it. There's a huge variety in there, not just in flavours but in techniques too. I was pretty disappointed in Vice Cream and a lot of blog recipes because they all seemed to be the same recipe with different extracts mixed in or whatever. But the Vegan a la Mode recipes use a ton of different bases, and they're super creative. Everything I've made from it has been awesome- even my skeptical, very omni brother had seconds of the double chocolate fudge ice cream from that book. Totally recommended!

Oh cool, sounds awesome!! Thanks :) I have vegan scoop but its way too reliant on soy bases and my daughter needs to be SF, at least for the foreseeable future anyway...

I got a kindle sample of vegan a la mode, loving the amount of raw recipes!!

Do the ice creams work out very expensive?

Way cheaper than buying commercial vegan ice cream, but that stuff is ridiculous here because most of it is imported. I think the only recipe I've tried that could be kind of pricey was the salted cashew one, but even that wasn't a big deal.

I know! So Delicious ice creams are $17 a pint here which is ridiculous! I think that alone justifies me buying Vegan a La Mode... :-)

On second thoughts, maybe not, ice cream makers are so expensive! What do you use, Erin?

I've got one of those brightly-coloured 1.5L Cuisinart ones that are everywhere. Keep an eye out because they're one of those things that are on sale all the time. I figure it's probably paid for itself by now because I never need to buy that ridiculously-priced stuff when I want ice cream.

That is. I. What. I checked the USD conversion and I just. Amazing.

Get Vegan a la Mode for sure! The recipes are all pretty flexible in terms of milk base (I've used soy, almond, hemp, oatmeal) and you can mix up any base with any add in. I've used it a bunch and my omni sweetheart's omni family have loved everything I've made, even! (I lucked out and my sister-in-law bought me one of the ICE-20's when she caught an actual in-store sale, so I guess they had faith in me making them vegan ice cream all along!)

It is much cheaper than buying pints and you completely control what goes in it, which is nice.

Stupid question, but I suppose getting Vegan a la mode would be useless if I don't have an ice cream maker? Can a good blender and a freezer do the trick?

You can make ice cream w/o a maker. it's just a lot of more work.
the blender isn't the issue, it's the actual churning and freezing.

what you do is make your base, and then chil, and freeze. and then you take it out , whisk it really hard with a whisk, fork, whatever, and put it back i think you have to do this 3x in hour incrraments, and you should be fine.

Thanks. I think I'll be making ice cream rarely enough that the extra work may be better than buying yet another kitchen appliance.
