  I didn't care for the chocolate flavor but the berry ones are good Smiley

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)!

Tropical Coconut Ice Cream

2 cans (14 oz) unsweetened coconut milk
1 cup sugar
1 cup plain soy milk
1/3 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
1/3 cup fresh grated ginger root
zest from 1 lime

1.in a bowl, whisk together coconut milk, sugar, soy milk, lime juice and zest, and ginger until sugar dissolves and mixture is smooth.
2. cover and refrigerate until completely cold or overnight.
3. stir mixture. transfer to an ice cream maker and freeze according to instructions.

I did the coconut ice cream last week to bring as a dessert at an invitation. As 2 vegan friends were going to be there too and not being vegan myself, I searched craftster for ideas. The ice cream was absolutely fabolous. I added coconut flakes and served it with bananas, dark chocolate sauce and some roasted almond slices on top. Yummy!

I need to try that one, I LOVE coconut Smiley

Also, update! I found a lactose free milk! So I can make regular milk now too. And I also found a lactose free vanilla ice cream at the store which i could put add ins into.
