What would you you do-o-o ...

Nope. Not for a Klondike Bar. What would you do for some homemade ice cream?

Would you consider jumping out of a plane?
Would you actually jump out of a plane? For some delicious Vanilla Coconut Ice Cream?

No? They didn't either. My cousin C sent me some pictures of him skydiving on the 4th of July and I had to find a way to use them. Pretty cool huh?

Well, I wouldn't jump out of a plane for this ice cream, or for any other reason actually. But I have to say that this is some really good ice cream. I finally figured out a way to make a vegan and dairy free ice cream with a super creamy texture.

What's the secret? Coconut milk and WestSoy Vanilla Soy Shake. I used rice milk before and it was good, but not creamy enough. I'll be trying some more flavors now that I've got it figured out.

*Updated* Mike just informed me that I can be a little late in submitting my recipe to his latest blog event - You Scream, I Scream, We All Scream for Frozen Desserts! I'm looking forward to the roundup for this delicious event.

Vanilla Coconut Ice Cream

2 cups WestSoy Vanilla Soy Shake
1 cup coconut milk
pinch of salt
1 T vanilla extract
3/4 cups sugar

Whisk ingredients together in medium bowl. Put in ice cream maker for about 45 minutes or until you have a creamy consistency. Scoop out and put in freezer safe container. Store in freezer. Enjoy!

1st off...how creamy and rich is the ice cream? That's my favorite part of ice cream. How different is it from dairy?

2nd...I jumped out on June 16. Here is the link to the slide show...http://moodygeminitwin.blogspot.com/2008/06/101-in-1001-days-update_19.html

Totally awesome!!! I would do it again...& you don't have to bribe me with ice cream!

Anali I love, love, love ice cream AND I am lactose intolerant so if this is as good as you say, I will definitely be in your debt...now to find someone with an ice cream maker.....
Biggie-Z said…
Oh... You totally make me want to pull out my ice cream maker (that I haven't used in YEARS)! That looks so good!

Lisa Johnson said…
asha - I think I would have fainted and then had a heart attack!! Have a great blog break! ; )

moody gemini - It's REALLY creamy! I can't tell the difference between this and regular ice cream and I do still eat regular ice cream.

Thanks for the link! I'll have to check out your jump. You are much braver than I!

sharon - This ice cream really is good! Please try it and let me know!

biggie-z - This is the time to pull out that ice cream maker! You'll be glad you did! : )

I had some coconut vanilla ice cream in ogunquit last year that was to die for! That said I would not jump out of a plane under any circumstances.
Tera said…
Yay! Ice cream! By the way, I thought I would let you know that you and Nina inspire me to be creative in the kitchen, and I made a kick a$$ fruit salad the other day (added "spices" and such which I would totally not do before now)...all by myself!

Wow. I don't know if i could jump out of an airplane but i could definitely finish that whole batch of Vanilla-coconut ice cream. I like you recipe, the combination of Vanilla soy and coconut milk sounds really good!
OK I can't imagine myself ever jumping out of a perfectly functioning airplane, but that ice cream looks fab! I love coconut in anything :)
ALI said…
hi anali! So glad I got the chance to meet you last week! Love the ice cream recipe, forwarded it to my sister in law who has a kid with a dairy allergy, and my other sister in law who has a wheat allergy and is on atkins!

Yummy Anali!

I am milk protein allergic!

I make soy icream with tofu too, it makes it very creamy and rich...add some dairy free oreos and VIOLA!
Helene said…
This looks wonderfully creamy and perfectly white! I'll leave the airplane jumps to your family, they sure look better than I ever will if I ever jump out of an airplane for fun!
My legs just turned to jello looking at those pictures, so I think you know what my answer would be!
Lisa Johnson said…
david sullivan - I guess this is a popular flavor. And I'm with you on the jumping - or lack thereof. ; )

tera - Thank you for letting me know! And that salad sounds good. : )

zen chef - Thanks! It's my best ice cream yet. And I made more ice cream today, so you know what that means. : (

bleeding espresso - LOL! I love the "perfectly functioning airplane" part. I didn't look at it that way. I guess I would jump out of a completely messed up malfunctioning plane that I was unlucky enough to be aboard - assuming I had a parachute.
Lisa Johnson said…
ali - Welcome! It was so nice to meet you too. I haven't done our blogmeet post yet. I think that will be midweek. I'm glad that you liked the recipe. Let me know if they try it.

lovebabz - I'll have to try the tofu. I've never used it in baking. And I had no idea that dairy free Oreos existed!

tartelette - Welcome! And thank you! I'm leaving the jumping to my other family members too. ; )

susan - Same as me! ; )

Anali, thanks for visiting my blog! I have not ever been a fan of making my own ice cream, but the Vanilla Coconut recipe may have just changed my mind! Coconut is dear to me-Grew up surrounded by them and the many uses they have in the Puertorican kitchen. So...I will let you know if I venture to try it!!! Great blog, BTW!
Lisa Johnson said…
a puertorican in wauwatosa, wisconsin - Welcome! This was my first time using coconut milk and I'm going to start exploring more ways to use coconut. I hope you try the ice cream! And thanks for the sweet words about my blog. : )

this sounds so good!
we have really struggled with creamy ice cream (we usually do sorbet)... it always seems to turn out icy :( but no time like the present to try again!
Lisa Johnson said…
amisha - I hope it works out well for you this time! ; )
