I scream. You scream.
We all scream For ice cream!
Yet.. did you know?
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.
Cows spend their lives being constantly impregnated – artificially inseminated – in order to produce milk.
Hormones have been designed to increase milk production.
Cows 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).
Today, the United States is the largest producer of milk in the world, followed by India and China.
So What Can you Do?
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:
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.
