Purely Decadent Vegan Ice Cream

June 14, 2010 by Keri

Busy, busy, busy!  We had a great weekend visiting my mom, and once again she stocked her fridge with plenty of goodies for us.  Last night, I made a quick and easy vegan whole wheat penne with portabella mushrooms and yellow and green zucchini.  I just cooked the pasta and lightly sauteed the veggies, tossed them together in a pesto sauce, and served!  Easy dishes leave us more time to chat and play with my awesome family!

For brunch, I threw together a tofu scramble with tomatoes, green chiles, sliced mushrooms, a little salt, pepper, and Italian spice mix.  It seems strange to throw together the typically Mexican food spiciness and Italian seasonings, but it really works.  And without my own spice rack, I make do with Mom’s selection.  I guess not everyone collects spices like I do!

While I was preparing lunch, I went ahead and pressure cooked black beans for dinner.  If I can remember to do it, it’s nice to get beans and grains cooked ahead of time.  And the well-ripened avocados in the refrigerator made for awesome guacamole.  When it came time for dinner, I just threw a chopped onion, red pepper, and yellow pepper in the skillet, heated the vegan refried beans, and put all the fixin’s out for some delicious fajitas!

This evening needed a cold, sweet treat!  I picked up a pint of Purely Decadent vanilla bean coconut milk ice cream for us to try and woah is it delicious!!  I’m not a huge fan of most soy ice creams, so I was skeptical when I bought it, but this stuff is amazing!  The little guy liked it so much that everyone was comparing him to a baby bird, the way he was walk by everyone’s spoon with his mouth open.  I was definitely eyeing the chocolate peanut butter flavor for next time!

  1. This ice cream is definitely next on my to-try list. My favorite so far on vegan ice creams is Tempt. My best meal this weekend: Buffalo ‘chicken’ pita at Karyn’s on Green, with Bananas Foster for dessert! Holy moly!

  2. Danielle (Runs on Green) says:

    That ice cream brand is my favorite!! The turtle trails & the PB Chocolate are also amazing (not that I’ve tried every flavor or anything…)

      I was at Whole Foods tonight and couldn’t believe the large selection of flavors- where I got this one only had two!

  3. Stefanie says:

    I, too, was impressed with the Purely Decadent icecream. It is creamier then I thought it would be and has a nice flavor. Your meals always look better then mine. Have a great day. 🙂

  4. Amanda says:

    I def. enjoy that ice cream in it’s coconut form, I have some ish with soy! But prepping dinner in advance any day is a life safer, it takes a lot of planning to get a head of the game some days!

    • Keri says:

      Yeah, it’s such a relief to go to make dinner and realize it’s half accomplished already. 😛

  5. Andria says:

    Hey lady!!! Sorry I’ve been mia since I retired from the blog world. Your pics look delicious as always 🙂 xoxo

  6. Joanne says:

    Haha! I have 62 spice bottles, but my spice rack only holds 48 of them. I love scrambled tofu. Yours looks delicious!

    The best meal of my weekend was the spinach enchiladas with red and green chile and sopapillas we had at our favorite New Mexican restaurant. Then we came home and had Purely Decadent coconut milk ice cream sundaes. I think it was the best meal we had so far this year! 🙂

    I agree with the Ordinary Vegan…Tempt is SO GOOD! I’m also a really big fan of Coconut Bliss, too. I think it kicks Purely Decadent in the pants. 😀

    hey lady tempt is good stuff..according to my hubs, the ice cream junkie around here 🙂

    have a great week!

    • Keri says:

      I had to pick up some Tempt after all of the recommendations and it’s definitely amazing!! Thanks!! 🙂

  9. Sydney says:

    Mmm I love that vanilla bean coconut ice cream. That is the first non-dairy ice cream that I ever bought. I sat down and ate the whole thing as soon I opened it!

    • Keri says:

      Haha- I think I end up eating more than a serving of non-dairy ice creams because they’re so light it seems like less! 😛
