I'm an ice-cream fanatic. It's probably the main thing seperating me from veganism, but the best ice cream i've ever made was entirely dairy free. I used coconut milk (plenty of fat content!) instead of cream and the flavor was coconut-lime-ginger. If that sounds intriguing, let me know and I'll dig up the recipe and send it.
That definitely sounds intriguing! Please send! :-D
ok, sorry it took me so long to get back to you. i got this recipe from a cookbook, but modified it slightly (replacing half-and-half with soymilk). because of the coconut milk, the lack of cream probably doesn't affect the taste much. i made it and it was delicious (and easy)!
