Does anyone have a recipe for vegan ice cream that doesn't contain soy?

I've looked and all of the recipes i can find contain tofu.



Or does anyone know if it's possible to improvise and just make it up as i go along, or is ice cream one of those things that needs exactness?

I've never made ice cream... I have no idea. But I do *buy* Rice Dream a lot... which is soy free.

are you using an ice cream maker?

I have one, and I've found whatever you pour in there, will freeze. My friend and I once made frozen vanilla cokes by just dumping a can of coke into the frozen drum and letting 'er rip. (I have a cuisinart...)

I don't see why you couldn't take rice/almond/oat milk of your choice, add some sugar/flavouring/fruit, and let it go for a spin in an ice cream maker. Worse case scenerio -- you waste a few cups of milk.

Sorbet is always an option. It doesn't have that "ice cream" texture, but I still love it.



If you're using a machine, I bet you can substitute other milks, like rice milk.

you may be interested in the book Vice Cream. its a vegan ice cream recipe book, and i believe the author uses mainly nuts for his recipes - no, or very little soy. i've heard mixed reviews... but it may be what you're looking for.

Thanks everyone. I do usually buy ice cream which does contain soy as unfortunately over here we can't get soy free ready made vegan ice cream and luckily it doesn't make me sick. But for christmas dinner i wanted homemade ice cream to go with another desert I'm making.



I do have access to an ice cream maker but i have no idea how it works so i don't know if i'd feel happy just tipping things in and hoping for the best which is why i was looking for a recipe mainly to give me some guidance. I'm okay substituting milks as I'm used to doing that, it's just the substitution of tofu or egg's I'm having trouble with. But i may give it a try tomorrow and see how it works out.

I haven't ventured into ice cream just yet but I understand that agar agar helps it to be more scoopable and less like a big block of ice, if you like experimenting.
