Review and Giveaway! “The Spunky Coconut: Dairy~Free Ice Cream” by Kelly V. Brozyna

September 13th, 2012 by Lisa

September 18, 6pm pacific time. This contest is now OVER. Thank you so much for all of your wonderful comments!   The winner was randomly selected, and has been notified via email. Congratulations to Jackie P.! 


Lisa Irvine writes at Lisa’s Blogety Blog. You can find her at @Lirvine98 on twitter. If you have an idea for a giveaway, please let her know!



When I received my copy of “The Spunky Coconut: Dairy~Free Ice Cream” in the mail, I knew that I was going to love it, just by looking at the cover photo!

I mean really, what is better than ice-cream?  Well, for me, and others with problems digesting dairy, Dairy-Free Ice Cream!    Kelly V. Brozyna of  The Spunky Coconut has written a beautiful cookbook filled with recipes that are not only dairy-free, but also soy-free, sugar-free and vegan.  As far as I can tell, these recipes are also grain-free and gluten-free, providing you make sure to check your ingredients, such as the spices, to be super sure.  The base for the ice cream in this book is made with coconut milk and either cashew or hemp milk.

You will need an ice cream machine and Kelly also recommends having a good blender to make her ice cream.  The recipes look so delicious, that I’m sure if you don’t have this equipment, you will want to run right out and get it!

My favorite recipes in this book, although they all look so yummy that I had trouble just choosing a few, are:


* Chocolate Hazelnut Ice Cream

*  Rum Raisin Ice Cream

* Pumpkin Ice Cream

* Gingerbread Cookie Dough Ice Cream


For those of you who love frozen yogurt, pudding pops and sorbet, there are great recipes for:


*Orange Cream Frozen Yogurt

* Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Pudding Pops  (Wow!)

*Pomegranate Sorbet


These are just a few of the many recipes found in Kelly’s book!


Kelly has graciously offered to giveaway a copy of “Dairy-Free Ice Cream” to one of our lucky readers!
