Don’t fret, because vegan ice-cream couldn’t be easier to make. Here is a simple and quick recipe that will give you ice-cream in 10 minutes or less, and no ice-cream machine is required.

This was perhaps the most delicious of the ice-creams I have made since becoming vegan. I was a bit skeptical about using coconut cream because I normally would use oat cream or rice cream, but the flavor was great! It is not an overpowering coconut flavor at all, in fact I could barely taste it! For me it had the perfect tartness and was the creamiest of all the dairy free ice-creams I’ve tried so far. Of course you could always substitute the coconut cream with soy cream or even soy yogurt if you like soy, but do give this a try sometime!
