Desert Vegan Box Set 2 in 1: 150+ Ice Cream Vegan and Chocolate Vegan Recipes by Sam Kuma
My favorite part of a meal is desert. When I go to a restaurant, I ask to see the desert menu before I order dinner. That way I know if I need to save room for desert. LOL! In fact, neither my husband, Bill nor I can eat as much as we use to. When dining out, we often share a main dish and sometimes desert. At home, I cook full recipes and we eat the leftovers. We always have vegan deserts on hand, either ones I make or buy already made. So, I am always happy to try out more desert recipes.
The Vegan Desert Box Set is two desert books. One is vegan ice cream recipes and the other is vegan chocolate recipes.
Vegan Ice Cream Book
In the Vegan Ice Cream book, not all the recipes are actually ice cream. It starts out with slush and shaved ice recipes, and then moves on to sorbets, and then ice cream recipes. Some of the recipes call for an ice cream maker, which I don’t have. I have made vegan ice cream without one using a special technique with good success so I used that with the recipes I tried.
All the fruit based sorbet recipes I tried worked fine and were quite delicious. I made both the Lemon and Berry Sorbets. The Chocolate Sorbet was too icy but perhaps the result would have been better with an ice cream maker. I also made the Soft Serve Ice Cream that doesn’t call for an ice cream maker. It was delicious but not very original. There are a lot of frozen banana recipes out there. They are a vegan staple when it comes to desert and this is the first recipe I learned when I went vegan over 25 years ago. There were some really good ideas for ice cream flavors and I look forward to trying more of the ice cream recipes.
There were also some ice Cream topping recipes like a berry sauce and hot fudge. The Peanut Butter Hot Fudge was really good. It is rich so use sparingly. Chocolate and peanut butter together is a favorite of mine!
Chocolate Vegan Book
The Chocolate Vegan Recipe Book is not just deserts, in fact, it starts with breakfast. I don’t eat a big breakfast very often. I usually just have a super-foods cereal mixed with my home made vegan yogurt and a handful of dried cranberries on top. I follow that with a glass of my home made kombucha (a fermented healthy drink). However, about once a month I make a brunch on the weekend for Bill and I. Sometimes we invite friends over too. This weekend I made the Chocolate French Toast. French toast is my favorite comfort food and the cocoa powder and peanut butter made this French toast extra rich and flavorful.
I also made the Raspberry Hot Chocolate. It’s been unusually cold here the last couple weeks so that really hit the spot. I haven’t had time to make any of the cakes, cookies, etc but am looking forward to trying some of those recipes as well!
I give the Vegan Boxed Set books 4/5 stars.
I received the ebook version for my review.
