Everyone else is way too involved in the current argument to notice what’s going on.
I don’t usually like delving into what happens in my life because I’m a really boring person; most of my would-be stories revolve around the many joys of being lactose intolerant and quickly turn to TMI territory. I love food but over the past six years (people in my family develop food intolerances/sensitivities shortly after graduating high school) I’ve slowly seen many former loves disappear forever; this includes most industrially processed foods because whey, casein, and/or a variety of other dairy derivatives are added into everything from rice cakes to lunch meat.
However, today ended up not being a TMI day. Last week I decided to splurge and buy a pint of coconut milk based fake ice cream. It tasted good and was a lot closer to ice cream in texture and taste than the soy milk based monstrosity I tried a few months earlier. Then I found out that coconut ice cream is super easy to make and I made my very first batch of dairy free ice cream today. It tasted so good. At least the soupy mixture I created that is now sitting in my freezer tasted so good. It took a lot of will power just to get the mixture into the freezer; I wanted to drink it all. I can’t wait for tomorrow morning to roll around so I can see if the texture of my fake ice cream turned out believable.
If any one wants to make their own fake coconut ice cream all it takes is:
- A can of coconut milk
- sugar (added to taste)
- vanilla extract (added to taste)
I added cocoa powder and fresh strawberries to mine but that’s just because I like strawberries and chocolate. Any day I can add something back into my diet is a great day!
