It's hot outside. I want comfort. Something cold and sweet (and creamy would be a bonus). My local supermarket has one kind of vegan ice cream: So Delicious brand ice cream sandwiches, which cost almost $7 for a box of only 6 sandwiches. In the summer, how can a vegan satisfy a sweet tooth and not break the bank?
1. Haagen Dazs has amazing sorbets. Stick with fruit flavors and avoid the chocolate flavor which contains egg whites.
2. Edy's frozen fruit pops. I would really like to try the coconut but it contains milk.
3. Frozen bananas. When frozen, bananas become creamy. One day, I am going to cut bananas into chunks, coat them in melted chocolate and other fixins, and freeze. I smell a future post on this.
4. Frozen mangoes. I got a great deal (about $2.50) on a 24-oz bag of frozen mangoes at Trader Joe's. Let them thaw for a few minutes before digging in.
How do you handle a summertime sweet tooth?
