View Full Version : Soy Ice Cream?
07-05-2005, 12:57 AM
does anyone know how to make ice cream without using bananas? Preferably a raw soy milk based ice cream. I've grown a little tired of bananas lately and would like to make ice cream with the flavor of Soy Delicious or Rice Dream brands. I think they use soy/rice milk, apple juice, pear juice, rice syrup, sweetener, flavors... hmmm... question mark?
... any hints or suggestions on ingredients or on how to prepare w/ a Champion juicer on hand? :)

Well the problem with those brands in the store such as rice dream have been cooked so it would not be raw-if that is a major concern.
i have the champion juicer and in the manual for ice creams, all of the ingredients call for milk, sugar and eggs and whatever else you want to add to it. so (just brainstorming here) for a raw version, you can try making your own almond milk and probably make it a little thicker than usual (not as much water), and add your sweetener and vanilla or whatever else you want and blend all and pour in a tray and freeze solid. the manual says when solid, cut into strips and feed thru the champion and serve at once. you can even leave the almond pulp in the milk to give it a thicker consistency and some texture maybe?
i don't know how it can be cut into strips, maybe pour into an ice tray??? that one stumped me a little, lol
hope these ideas helped to maybe give you some extra brainstorm boosting power! :D

Yea I agree , you should try the almond milk - its raw and (imo) tastier than plain soy milk !

RawPriestess posted this recently......
super creamy cashew ice cream
1 cup cashews soaked
1/2 cup dates
1 inch vanilla bean (scraped)
dash of salt
any flavorings you like,
1 cup fruit or 1/2 cup carob,
if you want chunks in your ice cream, add them after the mixture comes out of the champion.
blend all in a food processor,
and freeze in ice cube trays,
When solid, pass through a champion juicer,
this is the closest to ice cream I've been able to come up with.
do bear in mind the known issues with Soy products (which I've posted about elsewhere on this board). If you're fine with those issues and still wish to consume Soy icecream then that's cool ;)
All the best,

Hi, NoGMO :),
One of my favorite bases for icecream is coconut -- creamy and rich, it makes a fantastic icecream.
Any nut of preference makes a great base. Seeds, such as sesame are good (in moderation), especially in a chocolate/carob icecream.
Making sorbets is nice too: melons are great this way.
You can get creative and use creative bases and herbs, such as avocados, refreshing cucumbers with mint, thyme, etc.
~This reminds me that I've been wanting to try some fresh beans as a base...I found some raw garbanzo beans (they were green!) -- fresh picked; not sprouted -- the other day for the first time at the market! Yummy, and not chalky like soaked and sprouted garbs ;D.~
Also, using vanilla adds to creaminess as well as flavor :)
Try varying and mixing fruits -- use whole, fresh -- and use juices sparingly.
