blueberry-cherry coconut ice cream $0.00

blueberry-cherry coconut ice cream

blueberry-cherry coconut ice cream

My dear friend, Kate, came by for an impromptu dinner before we ran off to a fun night of show-going at a tiny local venue. (Dana, the baker from my favorite vegan diner, Bragg's Factory Diner, was playing in her band JJCnV, so you know it was a blast!)  I made a delicious dinner of lentils cooked with garlic and red wine, brown basmati rice, and lemon-garlic kale but I needed something cool for my sweet tooth. Vegan ice cream to the rescue!

  • 1 can full fat coconut milk, chilled
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup or more to taste
  • handful frozen berries and mangoes
  • handful frozen blueberries
  • handful dry sour cherries
  • splash of vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp tofuti better than cream cheese blended with a bit of maple syrup

Blend the coconut milk with the maple syrup and berry/mango combo until smooth, add in the extract and pour the mix into your ice cream maker. Let it chill and mix for a while until it just starts to firm up and then put in the blueberries, cherries, and cream cheese (if you don't wait they may sink to the bottom and that is not as fun). You could use fresh fruit but the frozen helps it solidify more quickly and I tend to be impatient. Mine set up in about 30 minutes in my magical ice cream maker that I keep in the freezer just in case I need to make ice cream at any point in time. Give it a try, play with the proportions and enjoy!

Awesome Veg-Grocer-to-be needs your help!

Awesome Veg-Grocer-to-be needs your help!

From my buddy, Rikki, who has been working very hard on this worthwhile project:

I have been working on this project with a friend of mine Heather, to get an all plant-based grocery store open in Phoenix. I know for some of you not living in the valley or even miles and miles away this may not seem that important or even interesting, but what this can be is a foundation for future markets to open and model themselves after VegCo Market <---that is what we are calling it. It is an all plant-based (this means no meat, no dairy, no eggs, no seafood) grocery store that is focused on ethics and sustainability. Everything sold in VegCo will be as local as possible, as environmentally friendly as possible, no GMOs, no pesticides/herbicides on the food. There will be little to no packaging, we will have bulk bins for for items (except those that absolutely must be packaged or refrigerated) our mission is to be as bag-less as possible (bring your own), we will provide re-usable containers for the the bulk items. There will be an in house bakery and deli to get your food on the go, we will support local vendors and restaurants that would like us to sell their products
