About the book:
This revised edition of Vice Cream features more than 90 delicious ice cream recipes using all-vegan ingredients like nuts, dates, coconut milk, maple syrup, and fruit, plus recipes for raw vegan ice creams and sauces.

Whether you’re vegan, lactose intolerant, or following a dairy-free diet, you don’t have to miss out on one of the world’s favorite desserts.

Vegan Ice Cream offers decadent frozen alternatives that don’t rely on milk, cream, or refined white sugar. Instead, these luscious recipes use nut milks, fresh fruit, and natural sweeteners to create simple and inventive ice cream flavors, from old favorites like Chocolate Chip and Strawberry to exotic creations such as Pecan Pie, Pomegranate, Kiwi Mandarin, PiƱa Colada, Chai, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, Gingersnap, and many more.

This fully revised edition now features more than 90 recipes, including raw vegan ice creams and sauces, and full-color photography throughout. From the very first taste, you’ll be astonished at just how tasty and rich vegan ice cream can be. So make room in your freezer, and never miss out on the joys of ice cream again.

Reviewing Free Apps

I've gotten a bunch of free apps from Amazon's Appstore for Android, so I've decided to share my thoughts on some of my newer favorites.

I heard about this game from Apple users who loved the game, so I'm glad it's finally available on Amazon and that it works perfectly on my Kindle Fire HD. :) It's so much fun to play Phrase Friends with people I know as well as random opponents. I recommend this app for anyone that enjoys word games and/or games like Wheel of Fortune. Fun game!


I was looking for a good "notebook" app and ColorNote has been really useful so far. I've used it several times for writing reviews and other things. I haven't used the checklist option much, but from what I can tell it's great if you have a use for it. I like how you can change the color of the notepad and the calendar is nice. I also love how you can archive the notes you are done with so the main page isn't filled with old notes. I love this app!

Adobe Reader

This app is really useful for me. It's a great app to download and read PDFs on. There have been a couple documents that didn't work on the Kindle Fire itself, which is why I got this app. It works great and I love it!
