Fancy vegan ice cream desserts for your hot summer nights! »
Peaches n cream with a balsamic reduction! Angela Liddon, you and your gorgeous, fancypants desserts! It’s culinary art!
Late summer (and early fall, and early summer, and late spring) is HOT HOT HOT in my part of Northern California, and all I want are cold foods. Just giant salads and oceans of vegan ice cream.
That’s why I recommend you make this cashew-milk salted caramel ice cream as soon as possible. The author, Jennifer Barckley, took two years to perfect her recipe, which probably means it is amazing. What was the last thing you spent two years on?
I admit, both desserts seem a bit more labor-intensive than I like (I am a lazy, sweaty lump), but if you want to impress people and cool them off, serve them one of these beautiful dishes. They will be offering to have your babies by bite three, guaranteed. BRILLIANT IDEA: What if you made cashew-milk salted caramel ice cream and served it with fresh peaches and a balsamic reduction? Serve it to your neighborhood and watch them worship you as a kitchen deity!
If you want to go the easy route, though, vegan Miriam Krule and some of her family members did a six-brand taste-test of grocery store vegan ice creams over at Slate. Unsurprisingly, So Delicious was their favorite, and nobody liked weird old Tempt.

You guys, I am feeling unwell. Will someone please make me this clementine creamsicle smoothie by beautiful genius Angela Liddon? I will be your best friend, I swear. Not that that’ll get you much (I am a terrible friend!), but baby Jesus wants you to heal me, so how’s about throwing some fruit and nut milks in a blender? Do it for Him.
Oh She Glows has an entire feature up on Vegan Overnight Oat Parfaits. Now, the only words that really appeal to me there are vegan and PARFAIT (ooh la la) but you know, new year, new me. Healthy can be delicious! No more cookies for breakfast, it’s time to step up my game and move on to shit that just LOOKS like dessert, but tastes like NUTRITION. I can do this, I believe in me.
Please note: if in two weeks you might find me huddled in a corner repeating “there’s no place like home, there’s no place like home” to a cookie, just know I tried.
