Really AWESOME Vegan Soymilk Ice Cream!!!

I don't know what to say - I'm at a loss for words (I know that's hard to believe) - this is just about the MOST DELICIOUS thing I've ever made...

I took Mom's (or maybe Nanny's) old churn Ice Cream recipe and veganized it - SUCCESSFULLY!

This is soooo good:

First I made a batch of soymilk - I needed 9 cups of cream/milk so I made one 6 cup batch the regular way (this is milk) and then I took 3 cups out - washed everything and added 3 cups of water to the soymilk already in the maker and then processed a new batch of soaked beans (this is cream).

Mom's/Nanny's Old Fashioned Vanilla Ice Cream:

To make 1 gallon of ice cream:

5 cups soymilk - I just used the extra thick soymilk
2 1/4 cups sugar
1/4 cup + 2 Tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup flax seed goo - just boil 1/4 cup of flax seeds in 1 cup of water and strain through sheeting - you'll get a clear slimy goo - I used this in place of the 4 eggs in the original recipe.

4 more cups of soymilk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Combine Sugar, flour and salt in saucepan. Gradually stir in soymilk. Cook over medium heat approximately 15 minutes or until thickened - stirring constantly.

Add the flax seed goo and stir well - I used a wire whisk.

Refrigerate for 2 hours and then combine with remaining soymilk and vanilla.

Pour this into your freezer.

We got this hot pink freezer on sale at 'Stuff Mart' - you know how they sale all the "summertime" stuff for like 1/10th its regular price the week before school starts.

I'm setting it up in the laundry - because it's very loud.

The motor stops when the ice cream reaches the correct consistency and the booklet tells you to "harden" your ice cream at this point by either adding more salt to your ice and covering with newspaper or by putting it in plastic containers in the freezer - I did the latter as I'm not going to be eating it all at once...

this is the creamy goodness at the end of churning...

this is the finished product - after "hardening" in the freezer - I have four of these quart containers - YIPEE!

topped with chocolate syrup and black walnuts and a little soy whip that I picked up during my last trip to civilization...
You've got to try this...


  1. That looks GOOOOOD!!
    I think it's funny that in Finland the Soyatoo Soy Whip is in a blue can

  2. Thanks Torrance, that is funny about the soyatoo - I just wish it was available near my house...
