I'm so glad I made the plunge into ice cream making. It's wonderful to make ice cream we all love and can eat. Much much easier than I ever thought. Once you've got your 'basic batter' sorted then it's just a matter of adding in your favourite flavours and ingredients. Here is our Vegan Rocky Road!
This needs to be chilled for a couple of hours in the fridge.
750 ml coconut cream
3/4 cup caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp Xanthan Gum
2 tbsp Golden Syrup
1/2 cup cocoa (or a cup if you want dark chocolate)
Whisk together in a bowl and pop in the fridge; while it's chilling measure out the other ingredients (chocolate chips, marshmallows and Oreo's)
Use in your ice cream maker as per instructions - mine takes about 30 minutes to churn nicely.
Once the churning is done - empty into a large bowl and add in:
1/2 cup dairy free chocolate chips
1/2 cup vegan marshmallows
5 crushed vegan, gluten free Oreo cookies (I get them from Waitrose)
Mix quickly with a large metal spoon and then pop it in an airtight container (tupperwear) and put in the freezer to harden up. Its takes about 3 hours.
You then have the most wonderful ice cream - go crazy and add Vegan (Nut Free) Whipped Cream.
