Ice cream news

I saw Ben & Jerry make dairy free ice cream now. I know this is relevant to John's interest!  :D



I saw it in the shop the other day, and almost got the caramel flavour, I was tempted, but I'm eating Lohilo these days.

I'm going to have to start looking for these! I'm trying to reduce the dairy in my diet. They all look delicious.

Oh you should check out the chocolate tofu 'cheesecake' recipe! It was really good.

Hm. I espied some BJ non-dairy/vegan Chunky Monkey in Sainsbury's this afternoon. It was massively expensive but I thought I'd try it.

Didn't like it at all. Sickly sweet, kind of a bit oily and excessive banana as well. Also high syrup levels.

Ah well. -- I'd give it another go if I saw the Cherry Garcia, but if they've spoiled that that'll be it between me and Ben And Jerry's.

I still haven't tried them. The nutrition doesn't seem especially better than dairy varieties, so they really only make sense if you're avoiding dairy for reasons that have nothing to do nutrition. (Allergies or ethics, for instance.)

This is my new favorite:



Add ice cream vanilla. I haven't seen the chocolate or the cookie dough, so haven't tried them, but the vanilla is on par with your Haagen Dazs or B&J.

I decided to just give up on ice-cream. It was easier.

I quit crisps as my new year's resolution.
