Banana Peanut Butter Ice Cream (and a Giveaway)

Imagine how exciting it was to come home to find that the nice folks over at So Delicious had sent samples of their new almond milk products to try. I am feeling pretty fortunate and I would like to share the good fortune and offer you the chance to win a coupon for a free So Delicious product, too (details below)!



In the package I received were a couple of cartons of their new Almond Plus Almond Milk Beverage. Confession: I had never tried almond milk before!

If you are a regular reader you know how I feel about milk. Let's just say I have never been a fan and have not actively sought out cow's milk replacements. Losing milk to go vegan was no big deal. In fact, I considered it a benefit!

For cooking I have been using  So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Beverage  and have been pleased with the results. So, until today the thought never even crossed my mind to try almond milk.

But, try it I did and it was really good!  I whipped up this soft serve ice cream with the Vanilla flavor and WOW!! So Delicious.

On to the giveaway!  To enter simply do one (or more for multiple entries) of the following:
  • Leave a comment on this post (don't forget to leave me an email address to contact you)
  • Tweet "@VeganVersion please enter me to win a free @So_Delicious product http://www.theveganversion.com/2012/03/banana-peanut-butter-ice-cream-and.html" 
I will pick a winner on Saturday March 10th. Good luck!

[Update: Congratulations to Jordan Dunne, the winner of the giveaway! Please check your email!]

Banana Peanut Butter Ice Cream

  1. I love So Delicious frozen desserts but I've never tried their almond milk. This recipe is a great incentive to do it...it looks superdelicious! I've got chopped almonds too so I'm gonna add some in for a little crunch. Many thanks for sharing it and for the giveaway!

  2. That does looks good! I haven't been blown away by the coconut milk (I can see the oil on the top when I use it in coffee), but maybe the almond will lure me in :)

  4. Michelle W says: Thank you for this opportunity! When I gave up Dairy, first alt milk I went to was Rice Milk, then Almond Milk, now love and use Coconut milk. But would love to try the newer Almond and Protein milks and juices out there, soon! (Not in my area yet). And thanks for the ice cream recipe! I don't have an ice cream maker, so will eagerly try this soon! :) Liked Vegan version on FB. My email is Shippermd@yahoo.com

    1. Thank you! I will have to try that. I admit, I am likely the only vegan around that really dislikes soy milk which was why I was so happy to find the So Delicious Coconut products. And, I am really glad I have discovered that I almond milk is another thing I can use for cooking!
