POM-orange vegan cocktail

i think sometimes there is a misconception that all vegans are super health driven or won't put anything toxic in their body. while i won't put anything from a living animal in my body, i freely admit that i do drink. some people (vegan or not), choose not to drink, and i respect that. but i'm on the other side of the fence, and all too happy to kick up my heels with an adult beverage now and again. mainly, i'm a beer girl, but i have enjoyed a few girly drinks in my day. this is my POM wonderful green smoothie's evil twin.

  • 1/3 cup soy ice cream
  • 4 oz. POM wonderful juice
  • 1/2 medium orange, peeled
  • 3 oz. high quality rum
drop everything in a blender, and blend up for about 25 seconds until it's smooth and creamy. taste test, and add a little POM juice if it's too powerful. of course, if it's too weak (or if you aren't driving anywhere), add a little more rum.
evil, i know. :)

Sounds heavenly. Ice cream, POM, and rum...you're so speaking my language. As far as I'm concerned, alcohol is good for the soul.

I've never blended ice cream with alcohol, sounds much better than a frozen margarita. What a refreshing drink for the summer!

Looks inviting! Must have tasted heavenly!

Alyssa said...

this looks really good! i've never had POM so i have no idea how that tastes.. but i am afraid i can never make this because i've never purchased "high quality rum" before...

Sounds like an awesome cocktail! I also do drink occasionally, although I've naturally reduced alcohol consumption (for some reason) when going vegan.

Hey! On the black salt, I found mine at an Indian grocery store. Its apparently a big thing in Indian cooking, so any Indian grocer should have it. And I got a big bag for $1.59!

Ice cream drinks are the best and this one looks irresistible!

that sounds really good--i'm one of those who don't drink. but that's for other reasons. i'm allergic. i break out in handcuffs and misdemeanors. guffaw.

i like making bbq sauce with POM
