What’s more fun than making fresh ice cream with your child? Absolutely nothing!
One mistake I did was buying sweetened cocoa to add – it came out super sweet!
Next time I know better. I just blended, rather than use the “ice cream” button.I FINALLY got to try my ice cream maker. I had no idea how this would work!
Needless to say, I made it too soft 🙂
The hardest part was telling Amelia it had to be put BACK in the freezer for a while before she could it. It was too sweet for me, but the girls loved.
As far as the book, I love it! So many recipes – from basic chocolate (I had to start easy) to Jalapeno Heaven and Coconut Macaroon. The book reviews the basics you need to know, including sweeteners, nut milks, extracts – everything to make proper and healthy vegan ice cream. It contains recipes for 80 ice creams and a few sauces as well.
The only downside is the ingredients are expensive. That said, you are in control of the taste, flavor, texture, ingredients – I had no idea it was so awesome to make ice cream! The book is really easy to follow – just a few items and steps – and even my mistake didn’t ruin the ice cream. I recommend this book to newbies who want to try their hand at it – as long as you have an ice cream maker.
