Lick It!: Creamy, Dreamy Vegan Ice Creams Your Mouth Will Love Reviews
The unfortunate title of this book makes me reluctant to recommend it to friends just because I feel so embarrassed saying it (and the cover art just makes it worse). But that's just doubly unfortunate because it's such a great cookbook!A few years ago I hosted a party that involved a vegan ice cream bar using two ice cream recipes and several topping recipes from this book. No one else at the party was vegan or dairy-intolerant, but everyone loved the ice cream anyway.Since then, I break it out every summer and find all-new recipes to enjoy. This year, after I got a bunch of rhubarb I didn't know what to do with, I made the strawberry-rhubarb sorbet, which was fabulous. I've got the makings in my fridge right now for the ginger ice cream with raspberry-rhubarb sauce, which I'll whip up probably tomorrow or the next day. Last year I even used the basic ice cream recipes to make my own natural mint-chocolate-chip ice cream. The ice creams are also fantastic frozen into popsicles (my children's favorite).The only complaint I have (aside from the title) is that they're not lower in sugar than they are, but that's easily remedied so I didn't dock it any stars for that. Nor did I rate it down because I didn't know what a bombe was without looking it up elsewhere. It just seems unfair to rate it lower for my own ignorance.
I've only tried a couple of recipes so far, but they came out great. When I've made vegan ice cream before, it's never thickened as much as it was supposed to, even when I made sure all of the ingredients and the ice cream maker were very cold. This ice cream got very thick in a fraction of the time, even though I didn't refrigerate the mixture as long as I was supposed to before pouring it into the machine -- maybe because of the inclusion of coconut milk. I also like that most of the recipes are simple, with just a few ingredients, and don't require cooking on the stove. And the book includes recipes for ice cream cakes, ice cream pies, sauces, and other desserts beyond the ice creams themselves.
Good, but not great. 2.5 stars. I had wanted a book like this so I could really wow my family with home made vegan ice cream. I have made a few and they are good, but not creamy enough. The chocolate cost me more money in ingredients than just going out and buying some at the store. Opps!
Good variety of recipes. Vegan. yum.
This book has the yummiest recipes. I asked my husband to hide this book because I'm on a diet and I can't help making another kind of ice cream.
My family loves these recipes!
