About the Author
Jeff Rogers grew up in Stowe, Vermont, where he became interested in food and tourism. Adapting his diet to improve his health, he eventually became a vegan, eschewing all animal products. But he still craved the premium dairy ice creams he once ate and so used his kitchen gifts to experiment with creating a rich, gourmet vegan ice cream. As he became interested in the raw food movement, he also began to make ice creams with all raw ingredients.
Soon after beginning his vegan ice cream venture, Jeff began sharing his desserts with friends. A physician friend noted that in a world where people are trying to eat low-fat foods and fewer sweets, it was naughty of Jeff to create these decadent desserts, vegan or not. Thus, he was dubbed “The Naughty Vegan” and has used the nickname ever since.
“Thanks to Jeff Rogers, you can make your own gourmet frozen desserts without dairy products. And they’ll taste better than Ben & Jerry’s or Baskin-Robbins ever did!” — John Robbins, author of Diet for a New America
“Sinfully sumptuous, fun to make, and all vegan! That’s one improvement in ice cream that is long overdue.” — Dr. Neal Barnard, author of Power Foods for the Brain
“I wasn’t sure how vegan ice cream would taste but after buying a machine and making my first batch of chocolate ice cream I’m hooked. It was so unbelievably delicious, we couldn’t stop eating it! You would never know there was no dairy in it. The only thing I did notice was if you have leftover ice cream that you need to store in your freeze, it gets pretty hard and you’ll need to let it defrost for a few before serving. I would say that it’s best to eat it when it’s just made. Love it!” – Sophia, Amazon
“The strawberry, strawberry/rhubarb, and raspberry/rhubarb are amazing. The vanilla is not bad either. Recipes are simple, quick (with planning), and quite healthy. I have also made a few others which tasted fine. Happy I didn’t have to give up a treat like this as a vegan!” – Stephen B. Simpson, Amazon
