I've only had vegan ice cream from the Chicago Diner, so I was curious to try some. On my way to Whole Foods, I thought I'd get two different brands to try: So Delicious and Tofutti. However, when I arrived, I saw that Tofutti was not there. So I decided on two flavors instead.
The Pomegranate Chip was delicious. It's a good flavor when you want a refreshing and fruity ice cream. I like that this brand gives you a dairy free and soy free option. A lot of vegan products use soy, but it's not the only ingredient to make it vegan. Some other ice creams I saw used almond milk. I did taste the coconut a little. Still delicious, but I wasn't expecting to taste it.
Oh my goodness! Peanut Butter Zig Zag is fantastic! I only allowed myself a couple spoonfuls of this one since I had already tasted the Pomegranate Chip. This is so rich and scrumptious! The name definitely describes it perfectly! It truly is Purely Decadent!
I am hoping to try to make a milk shake with a couple scoops of one of the ice creams and a little soy milk. I'd also like to try other vegan ice creams, like the ones made with almond milk.
If you're unfamiliar with the different milks vegans can have, here's a list:
Almond milk (or any nut-based milk)
All are very delicious and can be used in their own way. For certain recipes, you might prefer a certain kind of milk. Some recipes specify what kind. I love soy milk for cereal, hot chocolate, and many recipes. However, my favorite for smoothies is almond milk. I like the flavor it adds.
I hope everyone is enjoying their summer day like I am!
