Almond Milk Scoops

I think this never ending and extremely cold weather makes me dream of hot summer days…
This is not my first vegan ice cream, I tried before using soya milk and cocco milk. But I don’t like soy milk and I’ve never liked cocco (so why did I try using cocco and soy milk? …), the results were not my cup of tea. Quite predictable…
This almond milk icecream is really fresh, you’ll see, not heavy and makes you crave for some more.
My oldest goblin was enthusiastic, but a bit suspicious at the beginning because its color is not white but light beige.541414_10152623932445527_1700622195_n435 ml almond milk
2 tablespoons arrowroot powder
270 ml soy creamer
150 g sugar
vanilla extract

In a small bowl, combine 60 ml almond milk with arrowroot powder and set aside.

Mix soycreamer and the remaining almond milk, sugar & vanilla in a saucepan over low heat. When mixture begins to boil, remove from heat and add the arrowroot cream. The liquid will thicken noticeably (if you see some lumps, use your hand blender…)

Refrigerate mixture until chilled then freeze according to your ice cream maker.

2 minutes before switching off your ice cream maker add some pecan nuts, hazelnuts or similar…for your ice cream to be really delicious!

Astuce: no soy creamer? use some organic margarine… 2 full spoons of it and you’ll have a less creamy but as tasty ice cream! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Hi and thanks for your comment! Arrowroot as you know is a combination of starches from several tropical roots. Compared to corn starch, arrowroot:
      Results in a clearer, shinier texture;
      Survives the freezing process much better; and
      Works better in acidic liquids (certain sauces, soups, etc.)
      Where it doesn’t work so well is in many fruit pies and some other baked goods (because it tends to break down under high heat).

    • Nice to meet you too Angie and thanks for your Fiesta Friday, it’s a wonderful party idea!! Glad to have had the opportunity to participate! –Laura

  2. What a neat recipe! I bought an ice cream maker recently and haven’t had any time to experiment yet! Terrible, right?? I’m going to have to try this once I have more free time on my hands. Thanks so much for sharing! ๐Ÿ™‚
