Just a little something you can do with that leftover cranberry sauce…
Cranberry Banana Ice Cream
(Makes a little more than a quart of ice cream.)
Ingredients
4 cups fresh cranberries 1 cup sugar 2 tablespoons lemon juice 1 teaspoon lemon zest
(This makes about two cups of cranberry sauce, or enough for 1 to 1 1/2 or even 2 batches of ice cream, depending on how heavy your hand. You can use the leftovers as an ice cream sauce, in oatmeal, on savory foodstuffs, etc. If you’d rather not have any extras, reduce this recipe by half.)
4-5 overripe bananas, peeled, sliced and frozen sugar to taste (optional) a splash of non-dairy milk or creamer, if needed
Directions
1. Begin by making the cranberry sauce. In a medium-sized saucepan, combine the cranberries, sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Cook on medium, stirring occasionally, until the berries burst (about ten minutes). Reduce the heat to low and continue to cook until the sauce has thickened up considerable. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature until continuing to step #2.
2. Transfer one cup of the cranberry sauce to a food processor and pulse until it’s relatively smooth. Some chunks are okay.
3. Put the bananas in the food processor and pulse until smoothly blended. Most likely you’ll need to stir them by hand several times, as the frozen chunks tend to gather and become “stuck” on one side of the bowl. If necessary, add a splash of non-dairy milk or creamer to get things moving!
Alternately, you can allow the bananas to defrost on the counter top for 30 to 60 minutes beforehand, so that they’re easier to work with. Before putting them in the food processor, break them up into smaller chunks with a butter knife.
Note: Since introducing extra liquids (such as non-dairy milk) into the mix results in a slightly icier finished product, I prefer defrosting to non-dairy milk. If you’re in a hurry, pop the bananas in the microwave for 20 to 45 seconds instead.
4. If the bananas aren’t sweet enough for your taste (sometimes this happens if you freeze them before they’re sufficiently ripe), add a bit of sugar to taste. Any sugar works fine – white, brown, etc. – but I find that powdered sugar results in a smoother blend. If you’d like a stronger cranberry taste, add some more sauce.
5. Transfer the ice cream to an airtight container. Enjoy immediately as soft serve, or pop the ice cream in the freezer for an hour+ for a firmer dessert. Store any leftovers in the freezer in an airtight container. If the frozen banana ice cream proves too hard to scoop, microwave it for ten seconds to help loosen it up (or let the container sit on the counter for ten to thirty minutes prior to eating, depending on room temp).

The last batch of strawberries was kind of sketchy (probably the last of the season! waaaaaa!), so I tossed them in a saucepan along with some frozen blueberries and a little lemon juice to make berry sauce. Served on top of a bowl full of vanilla Trader Joe’s Soy Creamy ice cream, with just a dash of powdered sugar. Mind numbingly good.

fuckyeahveganicecream:

Over on my personal blog, I’m doing an alphabet theme for VeganMoFo. Naturally the first thing I made was ice cream - specifically, Apple Pie Ice Cream, with a banana base, so no ice cream machine required. Yay!

It’s awesome on its own, but doubly so when topped with fresh apples, cinnamon, and a handful of Apple Cinnamon Granola.

Apple Pie Ice Cream

(Makes about a quart of ice cream.)

Ingredients

4 overripe bananas, peeled, sliced and frozen
brown sugar or another vegan sweetener, if needed
a splash of nondairy milk or creamer, if needed

3 medium-sized apples, cut into slices 1/4″ to 1/2″ thick
1 tablespoon lemon juice
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1/2 vanilla bean (or a teaspoon vanilla extract)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
a dash of allspice
2 tablespoons margarine, cut into small pieces

Directions

1. Begin by preparing the apples. Preheat the oven to 400F. After you’ve cleaned and peeled the apples, cut them into slices about 1/4″ thick. Consistency is more important than the size; try to cut them as evenly as possible so that they bake at the same rate. The thicker the slices, of course, the longer the bake time!

2. In a medium sized bowl, combine the apples, lemon juice, brown sugar, cornstarch, vanilla bean, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice; mix well.

3. Transfer the apples to a small baking dish. Dot with the margarine. Bake, uncovered at 400F for about 45 minutes, or until the apples are soft and tender. Stir halfway through so that all the apples bake evenly.

4. When done, allow the apples to cool. Transfer the apples (and their juices!) to an airtight container and refrigerate for 6-8 hours or until cold. You can make and store the apples up to a day before blending the ice cream.

5. To make the ice cream: Put the apples in the food process and pulse until chunky.

Tip: If you’d like your ice cream chunky, set a few apples slices aside. Cut them into smaller pieces and mix them into the ice cream at step #8.

6. Add the (frozen) bananas iand pulse until smoothly blended. Most likely you’ll need to stir them by hand several times, as the frozen chunks tend to gather and become “stuck” on one side of the bowl. If necessary, add a splash of non-dairy milk or creamer to get things moving!

Alternately, you can allow the bananas to defrost on the counter top for 30 to 60 minutes beforehand, so that they’re easier to work with. Before putting them in the food processor, break them up into smaller chunks with a butter knife.

Note: Since introducing extra liquids (such as non-dairy milk) into the mix results in a slightly icier finished product, I prefer defrosting to non-dairy milk. If you’re in a hurry, pop the bananas in the microwave for 20 to 45 seconds instead. The juices from the apples should help in this regards.

7. Sample the batter and add a bit of sugar or other spices if desired.

8. Transfer the ice cream to an airtight container. Enjoy immediately as soft serve, or pop the ice cream in the freezer for an hour+ for a firmer dessert. Store any leftovers in the freezer in an airtight container. If the frozen banana ice cream proves too hard to scoop, microwave it for ten seconds to help loosen it up (or let the container sit on the counter for ten to thirty minutes prior to eating, depending on room temp).

Did I already post this here? I forget. So many accounts, blurg.

So this ice cream has got it going on: with both bananas and carrots, it’s got a serving (or two or three, depending on how big you like your sundaes!) of fruits and veggies, all in one delicious dessert. I got the idea for it while reminiscing about the Carrot Cake Banana Ice Cream I made last summer (mmmm, carrot cake ice cream!). Here, the carrots are roasted in a maple syrup-bourbon sauce (the bourbon is optional, but gives it a nice kick!) and then blended into a fine mash using the food processor.
Personally, I think that the bourbon’s the most distinct taste, but Shane’s undecided. We’re both big fans, though. Try it and see for yourself!
Maple-Roasted Carrot Banana Ice Cream
(Makes about three quarters of a quart of ice cream.)
Ingredients
4-5 large carrots, cut into thin slices 1/2 cup maple syrup 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 tablespoon vegan bourbon (optional)
3-4 overripe bananas, peeled, sliced and frozen brown sugar to taste (optional) a splash of non-dairy milk or creamer, if needed
Directions
1. Preheat the oven to 425F. Line a 9″x9″ baking pan with the sliced carrots. (4-5 large carrots halved lengthwise and halved or quartered into thin slices should be enough to do it, but use your own judgement!) In a measuring cup, whisk the maple syrup, olive oil, and bourbon. Pour the mixture on top of the carrots and mix well, making sure that all the carrots are coated. Bake at 425F for 15 minutes. Toss the carrots and continue to bake for another 15 minutes, or until the carrots are soft and tender. Remove from the oven and (carefully!) transfer the carrots and their juices to a food processor. Process until smoothly blended. Allow the mash to cool on the countertop before continuing.
2. When you’re ready to make the ice cream: Add the bananas to the food processor and pulse until smoothly blended. Most likely you’ll need to stir them by hand several times, as the frozen chunks tend to gather and become “stuck” on one side of the bowl.

Most likely you’ll need to stir them by hand several times, as the frozen chunks tend to gather and become “stuck” on one side of the bowl. If necessary, add a splash of non-dairy milk or creamer to get things moving!
Alternately, you can allow the bananas to defrost on the counter top for 30 to 60 minutes beforehand, so that they’re easier to work with. Before putting them in the food processor, break them up into smaller chunks with a butter knife.
Note: Since introducing extra liquids (such as non-dairy milk) into the mix results in a slightly icier finished product, I prefer defrosting to non-dairy milk. If you’re in a hurry, pop the bananas in the microwave for 20 to 45 seconds instead.
2. If the bananas aren’t sweet enough for your taste (sometimes this happens if you freeze them before they’re sufficiently ripe), add a bit of sugar to taste. Any sugar works fine – white, brown, etc. – but I find that powdered sugar results in a smoother blend.
3. Add the lemon zest and pulse until blended. Sample the ice cream and add extra sugar and spices to taste. If desired, toss in some candied lemon peel and pulse a few times to mix them in. Most likely they’ll make your food processor jump, so hold on tight.
4. Transfer the ice cream to an airtight container. Enjoy immediately as soft serve, or pop the ice cream in the freezer for an hour+ for a firmer dessert. Store any leftovers in the freezer in an airtight container. If the frozen banana ice cream proves too hard to scoop, microwave it for ten seconds to help loosen it up (or let the container sit on the counter for ten to thirty minutes prior to eating, depending on room temp).

I made a thing and it was tasty.

Lemon Lime Banana Ice Cream

(Makes just under one quart of ice cream.)

Ingredients

4-5 overripe bananas, peeled, sliced and frozen
3 tablespoons lime juice
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 tablespoon candied lemon peel (optional)
sugar to taste (optional)
a splash of non-dairy milk or creamer, if needed

love love love:

♥ Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials;
♥ Margaret Atwood (especially the Mad Adam series & The Handmaid's Tale);
♥ The Hunger Games;
♥ The X-Files;
♥ (Mostly) everything Joss Whedon; and
♥ Unicorns, narwhals, time travel & zombies (not necessarily in that order).

Also, I'd rather pretend that season 6 of Lost never happened, and that Alias ended with the 2003 Superbowl episode.
