Ice cream is, at its very core, a dairy-rich dessert. It has not been a friend to the lactose intolerant or vegans, which doesn't seem fair when you consider how very amazing this frozen treat is to eat. Luckily, it turns out that cream is not actually necessary to make our beloved ice cream at all. You can churn a delicious batch without a single drop of dairy.
We're not talking about ice cream made with banana substitutes here, either. While those simple recipes do have their time and place, they don't quite hit the spot when a real craving for ice cream hits. Nope, we found recipes out there that won't make you miss the dairy for a second. These vegan ice creams are sometimes even be better than the real thing. Seriously.
