Sweet Potato Rhubarb Vegan Ice Cream

Hi all,

Get excited for Maxx and Brookes Culinary Crafting Ice Cream session, part TWO.  (Here is the link to part ONE of our ice cream postings, if you like).  Though Maxx was the sole creator of this particular recipe.  This one is creamy, light, with the slightest tart tang.  The color is inviting and lovely.  Reminds me of cozy autumnal afternoons and evenings.

Personally, as Maxxs only other sampler, I recommend this topped with something like crushed Oreos, chocolate jimmies, or maybe some hot fudge, any of which I think would be a nice accompaniment.

Way cool thing about this recipe (aside from it being dairy free and sugar free): NO ice cream maker needed!!!!

This particular recipe is perfect for any time of year.  Summer, because thats an obvious pairing with regards to ice cream.  Though its also an ideal flavor for autumn or winter, with its homey flavors and texture, along with the warmth of color.

Blueberry Lavender Vegan Ice Cream

Get ready for a Maxx and Brookes Culinary Craft recipe.  This one, split into two entries. This being the first.

(Here is the link to part TWO of this ice cream entry extravaganza).

While dating this fantastic man, one of the many small but interesting shifts Ive seen occurring within myself has included going from neutral feelings towards ice cream, to full out loving it.  Before dating Maxx, sure, I liked ice cream fine and would enjoy if it was around, but never would I crave nor seek it out for myself.  That has since changed.

Sometimes now, finding myself in the grocery store on which a lightbulb going off overhead says, ice cream aisle!  Just go take a gander, the voice whispers.  And more than once, I have left with a new flavor for sampling.  Clutching my sweet treat with the mischievous wide eyed coupled with the death grip of Gollum from Lord of the Rings, complete with mental whisperings of “my precious.”  Yup, I’m a woman transformed.

However, recently Ive been feeling that, while I love it, all this dairy isnt doing my stomach the most kind of favors.  Hence the recipe below.  Ice cream, minus the dairy.  Talk about a sweet solution 😉

This ice cream recipe is bold, while light and lovely.  Its creamy.  Yet, there is no dairy, nor any refined sugar within.  Its sweet, smooth, so delicious.  Summer days and ice cream are, to me, the quintessential pairing.  What better way to enjoy this sweet treat, but without all the heavy ingredients (boatloads of sugar, dairy, cream) than to make your own??

Here is a fabulous, and pretty easy recipe, so that you can do just that!
