All I have to say is: believe in something so strongly that you are willing to fight for it. Whether that be veganism, animals, human rights, your spouse or whatever you wish. I just think that everyone should have a passion in life, otherwise your life will not be full.

Yet again, I come to you speaking of lovely desserts from Sara at the Innocent Primate blog. This one is a WINNER! I’m not actually a fan of strawberry ice cream, before veganism and now. Perhaps I just don’t like the fact that fruit, a.k.a something healthy, is invading my good ol’ fashioned bad for you ice cream! Leave my ice cream alooooone!!! Okay, freak out aside, this strawberry ice cream was delicious! If you enjoy fruit in your ice cream, then you just MUST try her Strawberry Fields Forever ice cream (even a little nifty title huh). Hell, even if you are on the fence about fruit and ice cream, I demand you try this! I pulled out the demand card!
**Waiting patiently to try ice cream**
Woo hoo! It is complete and ready for me to consume.
The only change I made to Sara’s recipe was to use light coconut milk. I only had organic lite coconut milk available and refused to drive to the store just for full-fat coconut milk! The lite coconut milk did not seem to hinder the taste or creaminess of the ice cream. This came out super smooth, creamy and just luscious. I can only imagine how creamy it would be with full-fat coconut milk. Is it possible that it could be creamier? I dare not even contemplate such a thing! This was already much creamier than soymilk-based ice creams you buy and/or make. Although, I haven’t tried Purely Decadent’s new line of coconut ice creams. After this experience they in fact may need to be tried………oh yeah.
I’m not usually one to share, but when they are furry balls of love I can’t resist. My two boys LOVED the ice cream as well, and wanted way more than the spoonful I was willing to dish out. After all, they shouldn’t have too much sugar….they’re hyper enough already
A doggy ice cream party!
Don’t be fooled by their tame appearance. This mutual sharing of the spoon soon broke down when Bruiser decided all the ice cream should be HIS and only his. Turns out Bruiser shares as well as I do
