I bought some coconut milk, thinking it was straight coconut milk till I got home and read the label but they use this preservative in it. I looked it up on line and cannot find out what it is. Does any one know what it is and if it is vegan?

Sodium Metabisulphite

frozen soymilk?

Ok.. this is kinda ghetto.. BUT..

Has anyone ever tried to freeze chocolate soymilk, in hopes of making a tasty frozen treat? I was thinking it might be a healthier/cheaper alternative to Soy Delicous. I know it wouldn't be creamy or nearly as orgasmic as the latter.. but still..

Also, any ideas of what one could add to it to make it less.. um.. frozen solid?

Thanks!

Reeses chewy chocolate cookies

I posted this recipe in response to Shwankys post on 5/30 about choclate/peanut butter cookies, and its really a yummy recipe so i thought i'd share it and make a post!

**you would have to use vegan peanut butter chips not the reese brand.

Reeses chewy chocolate cookies

2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups vegan margarine softened
2 cups sugar
powdered egg replacer equivalent to 2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 2/3 cups (10 oz pkg) reeses peanut butter chips

heat oven to 350. stir together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. beat butter and sugar in a large bowl until fluffy, add eggs and vanilla; beat well. gradually add flour mixture. stir in peanut butter chips. drop by rounded spoonfulls onto ungreased cookie sheet.

bake 8-9 minutes (do not overbake; cookies will be soft and puffed and will flatten while they cool) cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. cool completely.

about 4 1/2 dozen cookies.

Fruit Recommendations

I'm looking to try out some new and exotic fruit this summer, lots of it available (hopefully) in a local fruit market that has fruit from all over. But since I'm so picky when it comes to fruit, I don't want to waste my money on this that I can end up hating.

So I come for recommendations. These are fruits I have eaten, categorized accordingly:

Fruits I love and will eat: Most berries, particularly raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, cranberries, blueberries, cherries, a purple berry whose name I can't remember in English that grows near cranberries, grapes, coconut, watermelon.

Fruits I like the taste of, but not texture (that is, I'm fine with the taste, and using them in things like smoothies, ice cream or smooth non-pulpy juices, but not eating by themselves): peaches, tangerines, nectarines, oranges, lemons, limes, tomatoes.

Fruits I'm not fond of, but if the taste of a new fruit is this blended with something above, I'll try it: canteloupe, apples.

Fruits I absolutely hate that make me sick when I smell them: Bananas, grapefruit.

When recommending, please state what it most resembles. I'm especially looking for berry recommendations if there are any, since I love berries. Thanks!
