Last night my husband and I made vegan ice cream out of Silk vanilla soy creamer and half a box of red velvet cake mix (Duncan Hines brand-vegan unless I missed something. I was shocked!). Originally we were just going to make plain vanilla ice cream, but the recipe we were using called for arrowroot powder, which we couldn't find at our local supermarket. Thinking that it wouldn't matter as long as we used something as a thickening agent, I started looking through the boxed cake mixes to see if any we vegan.

I just blended together three cups of the soy creamer, two tablespoons of vanilla extract and half of the cake mix, and we put it in our ice cream maker for a half hour. After the half hour was up, the ice cream batter was still completely melted, but we thought it would be better to just throw it in the freeze to see what happened instead of throwing it away. Sure enough, we woke up this morning, and the batter had the consistency of soft serve ice cream! And it was DELICIOUS! Considering that the ice cream maker didn't really do anything at all, I'm thinking one could make the batter and just put it in the freezer overnight.

Just wanted to share

Sounds yummy. I don't know if that cake mix is vegan or not but I do know there are vegan cake mixes around.

Have you checked out ay vegan ice cream "cook"books? There's one called The Vegan Scoop, another called Vice Cream, and one titled Lick It.

Why OH WHY did I open this thread? I'm supposed to be laying off the treats, and here you are, dangling this one in front of me. I should have known better.

The cake mix didn't have any milk or eggs in it, but it's possible it had one of those other weird animal byproducts that like to hide in things. I am pretty new to this, so don't be upset if you check the cake mix at the store, and it has an objectionable item in it!

I haven't checked out any vegan ice cream books yet, but there's one I <b>really> want from that Bittersweet Blog (it's an e-book). BUTTERED POPCORN ICE CREAM. Need I say more?? We're definitely going to keep experimenting with the ice cream maker!

Hannah's recipes all look really good to me, although I don't do much sweet stuff myself so YMMV. I'm having an out of money phase right now so I haven't picked that ebook up yet, but it's high on the list of things to eventually get.

That's genius!

And, I don't know about the red velvet cake mix specifically, but most of the Duncan Hines cake mixes are vegan. Some of their frosting is, too.

The not freezing puzzled me a bit, but I have a theory: the alcohol in the vanilla extract suppressed freezing. This would also explain why the batter only froze semisoft when you stuck it in the freezer. My guess is it would work in the maker minus the extract, if anyone has their heart set on using it.

sounds great.

I need some vegan cake mixes.

mrsschu2u 05-05-2011 09:52 AM

Holy cow. I'm totally making this for mother's day! My son and I will love it! I'll stick it in the freezer on Saturday night. I'm so excited!
