Purple Cow Ice Cream Floats


Purple Cow Ice Cream Floats ~ From Vegetate, Vegan Cooking & Food Blog

“I never saw a purple cow. I never hope to see one. But I can tell you anyhow I’d rather see than be one.” – A well-known poem by Gelett Burgess, written in 1895.

Ambrosia in a pint glass! These delightful delovely delicious floats are made using grape ice cream and vanilla cream soda. The easy-to-make ice cream recipe is from Hannah Kaminsky’s brilliant book, Vegan A La Mode, page 94. It is made using coconut milk, so it is soy-free. We used an organic, natural cream soda. These went down fast. 😉

Cherry Cola Ice Cream

This uber-rich and incredibly delicious ice cream recipe is from the inspired cookbook Vegan A La Mode, by Hannah Kaminsky, page 80. We made this in our indispensable Gelato Pro Ice Cream Maker, which is made in Italy and is self-cooling so you don’t need to put any part of the machine into the freezer, which usually takes up precious freezer space.

This is a fun recipe to make, as you get to create your own cola simple syrup to use. It’s also bursting at the seams with ripe, fresh summer cherries, and has the creaminess of coconut milk to boot.

We served this piled high on gluten-free sugar cones.
