Ice Cream Week: Tropical Vegan Ice Cream
The idea of a non-dairy ice cream has always intrigued me. Most of us these days know someone that has dairy allergies, or perhaps someone who has a vegan diet. This ice cream gives you a non-dairy, fruity alternative to share with those that might not be able to eat dairy, or as a fruity alternative to the norm. Either way you've got a fabulous little dessert that really hits the spot on those warm summer days!
Note: This recipe is designed to fit this ice cream maker. You could easily double or triple it or whatever to fit in a larger machine.
What You'll Need:
1 - 32 ounce carton of Sweetened MimicCreme (Note: I discovered this at My Organic Market a while back. It's a non-dairy cream substitute that has no soy, is gluten free and vegan.)
1 cup of toasted coconut
1 - 12 ounce container of frozen pineapple juice, thawed but still chilled (Note: Look for a version with no high fructose corn syrup.)
2 bananas, mashed
In a large glass bowl mix together MimicCreme, coconut, pineapple juice and bananas. (Note: if you want to chill the mixture before freezing don't add the bananas until just before you plan to make the ice cream.) Pour the mixture into your ice cream freezer and freeze according to you machine's instructions.
Once the mixture meets the soft serve stage you can serve immediately, or you can place in an airtight container in the freezer.
Notes: You could add pieces/mashed fruits of any variety. Mango would be good, or perhaps some strawberries. It's completely up to you.

I was really pleased with how well it turned out. Supposedly you can actually whip the MimiCreme too. I didn't try that though, just used it for the ice cream.
