Purple Cow Vegan Ice Cream


If you didn’t win the giveaway in my Vegan A La Mode Review (Congratulations Kristine!), all is not lost. you can actually get a copy of this full-color cookbook (yes, a photo with every single recipe) for an unreal price on Amazon.

Hannah covers the entire range of expertise, from elaborate chilled concoctions to simple “starter” ice creams, like this one.

I actually love this grape ice cream recipe for back-to-school time. It contains just two inexpensive ingredients, can be free of any allergen that you or your family may have issues with (except grapes of course), and can even be made into frozen grape creamsicles if you don’t have an ice cream maker handy. Kids will love the pure grape flavor, and you will love how incredible EASY this recipe is!
