N’ice cream by Virpi Mikkonen and Tuulia Talvio
Summer is here! Although the weather hasn’t been all that great in Ireland lately (we did have a few weeks of hot weather), I still have high hopes for a good summer.. and if all fails we can all still just go on a holiday to a more sunny destination of course. Whether you are lucky enough to be enjoying some warm summery days or just want to dream about it, the best way to enjoy the summer, is by cooling down with some delicious ice cream!
There have been plenty of recipes in the past for making your own ice cream of course, so what makes this book tip of the month ‘N’ice cream’ more special? It’s vegan friendly! Now don’t go running away if you’re not a vegan, I’m not one either, but that doesn’t mean you can’t incorporate this healthy way of life into yours every once in a while. Balance is the key!
Every recipe in this book is free of gluten, refined sugars and dairy so if you have an intolerance for these, you will love this book for sure! If you are intolerance free you will simply love the new flavours this book will show you, compared to traditional ice creams.
Apart from the amazing recipes, the book also features absolutely stunning photos! I usually only share just a couple of photos from the books I recommend, but it was just too hard to choose this time because of the truly beautiful shots.
Just in time to beat the summer heat, N’ice Cream offers 80 decadent and healthy ice cream recipes made from all-natural, wholesome vegan ingredients like fruits, berries, and plant-based milks and nuts. Award-winning Finnish author Virpi and co-author Tuulia show that making your own ice cream can be easy and good for you at the same time.
These recipes can be made with or without an ice cream maker, and include foolproof instant ice creams that can be savored right away. Includes recipes for ice creams, milkshakes, sorbets, ice cream cakes, sauces and more.
