Conclusion:

As we move along in spring here in the United States and get closer to summer, ice creams and smoothies just sound so appealing. Did you know that there is a way to make vegan ice cream that, I dare say, tastes better than its dairy alternative? I’m doing a special post tomorrow with a recipe that will be perfect for Mother’s Day or any day, for that matter. Here’s a teaser:

Strawberry & Vanilla Bean Ice Cream

Or, if you have my app, Vegan Delish (get it here!), you can find the recipe available right now under the “Desserts” or “New Recipes” categories. Here’s a screenshot of the iPad version:

See you tomorrow!
