I scream. You scream.

We all scream For ice cream!

Yet.. did you know?

264 million dairy cows exist worldwide.

Despite the U.S. only have 9 million cows, compared to India’s 43 million cows, India produces only 2/3 the amount of milk the U.S. produces every year.


Today’s average dairy cow produces six to seven times as much milk as she did a century ago.

Cows spend their lives being 
constantly impregnated – artificially inseminated – in order to produce milk.

Hormones have been designed to increase milk production.

are pushed hard for production, and, after 3-4  years, their production slackens, and they are sold off for hamburger meat (despite having a natural life span of 20 years).

Unhappy cows and the lies of the dairy industry.

the United States is the largest producer of milk in the world, followed by India and China.

So What Can you Do?

Make choices.

Make very good – ethical – loving – healthy – choices.

Go dairy free, and share the video above with your loved ones. Let them know the truth, and then they can make informed decisions about what they choose to put in their mouths.

On our 10 Billion Lives Tour we travel across the U.S. showing our 4 minute video that exposes the farm industry.

Just the last two days, simply witnessing our video led over 300 students to consider making a pledge to go meat and dairy free!

Just watch what this long-time vegetarian has to say after watching our video:

Beyond educating people as to the horrors of the farm industry, we also seek to help our viewers in making an easy transition to a delicious, healthy, cruelty free diet.

There are many dairy free and delicious ice cream options out there.

I, myself, prefer to keep it natural and simple with:

3-Ingredient Vegan Ice Cream

1) 2-3 frozen bananas

2) 1/2 cup almond milk

3) 1 cap full of mint or almond extract

The Gourmand’s version:

Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Ice Cream

Luckily making non-dairy ice cream is easy! vegan peanut butter chocolate chip banana ice cream →

Courtesy of Hot For Food Blog:

Ingredients (1 serving):

2 sliced and frozen bananas

2 tbsp natural peanut butter

3 tbsp raw cacao nibs

pinch sea salt

drizzle of agave (or maple syrup – optional)

Place frozen banana slices in a food processor and run the machine until it resembles a crumb like consistency.

Then add peanut butter, cacao nibs, sea salt, and agave and whiz a little longer until you get a soft serve ice cream consistency.

I love you readers.

Love your fellow humans, cows, dogs, cats, and every single animal that is innocent and deserves to live a cruelty free life.


“This happy mother dairy cow was spared a violent slaughterhouse end and is now reunited with one of her calves from whom she was separated on a dairy farm. They are now reunited and living out their lives together at a sanctuary in California. At sanctuaries like these, motherhood is honored and respected across the animal kingdom. As we become informed consumers, it becomes clear to us that she is really the happy cow, not the one promoted to us on the organic milk carton. She is a happy cow because she is free to live according to her own interests, free to create a family and free to raise and nurture her young as she so deeply desires and as Mother Nature herself so clearly intends.”
