Being vegan is fine, but what about when it comes to sacrifice the favourite food, including desserts like ice cream made using animal products like milk cream and eggs. Substance in dairy products make them softer and very enjoyable and tempting texture, though getting and making vegan ice cream is possible in fact super easy, but what about making an ice cream base with the consistency that is a quality of any ice cream without dairy products?

Taste: Using alternatives like soy milk, rice milk or coconut milk to prepare ice cream will taste just like them, maybe you like them or not.

Some good starch can be used, but vegan people will not go with it, glucose syrup, and banana can be for such people, which not only enhance the texture but will add sweetness to the dessert.
