This blog may get some people’s panties in a bunch and cause some controversy, but it’s time to get honest about dairy. What’s cold, sweet, healthy, delicious, and doesn’t come from the nipple of a tortured animal?   Why vegan ice cream, of course.   As information on the dairy industry continues to repulse, sadden, and scare us – vegan ice cream is the best option to satisfy our oh-so-sweet tooth.   Before you yelp; “But, GirlieGirl, I don’t do soy!!” Chillax! The new vegan ice cream options are better for you than ever – as many are now COCONUT based.   We especially heart the coconut-based Soy Delicious line.

Vegan ice cream parlors are popping up all over the world!   Just in NYC alone, we have two exclusively vegan ice cream shops (not to mention all the non-vegan spots where you can grab yourself a tit-free cone!)   Lula’s Sweet Apothecary is a small, cabinet of curiosities and Ice Cream parlor tucked away in the Lower East Side of Manhattan.   With nutmilk, coconut cream, and soymilk-based ice cream creations like the hugely popular cake batter and brownie batter or the traditional rocky road (complete with Sweet & Sara marshmallows), maple walnut, and even chocolate-vanilla-swirl soft-serve – Lula’s blows our mind.   Stogo is another exclusively dairy-free ice cream spot (in the East Village) that already has slews of celebrity fans waiting to get their sugar rush on.

It seems kinda Duuuuuuuuh, doesn’t it? Why on earth would anyone drink someone’s breast milk when they could go for milk made from protein rich nuts? Milk is made to grow a teensy baby calf into a full grown cow in a matter of weeks.   It’s wonderful for baby cows — not so much for humans.  Cows used for their milk are drugged and bred to produce unnatural amounts of milk; they have their babies stolen from them shortly after birth and sent to notoriously cruel veal farms so that humans can drink the calves’ milk.   All those vegetarians still chugging their latte with cow milk?   You better recognize; Veal is a direct product of the dairy industry.   And those Mama cows do cry for their babies. Farm Sanctuary states; In a healthy environment, cows would live in excess of twenty-five years, but on modern dairies, they are slaughtered and made into ground beef after just three or four years. The abuse wreaked upon the bodies of dairy cows is so intense that the dairy industry also is a huge source of “downed animals” animals who are so sick or injured that they are unable to walk even stand. Investigators have documented downed animals routinely being beaten, dragged, or pushed with bulldozers in attempts to move them to slaughter.

Get easily icked out?   Good, you should know this stuff if you are gonna keep pumping into your body, let alone’s your loved one’s precious temples. Milk is full of mucus, hormones, puss (from the constant milking), and anti-biotics. Not to mention the karmic implications of taking in the milk made for a cow that’s been kept pregnant constantly and have her babies stolen from her once a year. I’ve heard “I’m addicted to cheese/ ice cream/ creamer.” – well, you really are because there are opiates in milk that are there to soothe baby cows during breastfeeding. Trust me – after a nice dalliance with rice, soy, almond, or hemp milk – you’ll never want boob milk from a cow again. Why be a part of this when the alternative’s are just as tasty and much less fattening.   Just some of Dairy’s known side effects (in humans) are:   bad breath, pimples, breast cancer, ear infections (in children), Iron Deficiency, Diabetes, Ovarian Cancer, Lactose Intolerance, Allergies, Osteoporosis, Colic (in babies), and more.   Nutrionist Katherine Pennington tells us; “ Milk is the perfect food for babies who need calories and nutrients in order to grow but it is not the ideal food for adults. We are the only species who drink the milk of another species. Most of us do not need to consume a drink that is intended to grow a 90-pound calf into a 2,000 pound cow! While milk is an essential food when we are babies, humans were not created to drink milk as adults. We are the only species on the planet who drink milk as adults, and who consumes the milk of another species! At around eighteen months to 4 years of age, humans lose the ability to produce adequate quantities of the enzyme lactase needed to digest lactose, which is the sugar in milk. Most adults have about 5-10 percent of the lactase than they had as infants and this causes many adults to be lactose intolerant.   Symptoms of lactose intolerance include bloating, sinus congestion, chronic colds, rings under the eyes, headaches and, in extreme cases, diarrhea.”

Want to really gag?   Nelly, get your barf bag. Milksucks.com tells us tells us Whey or milk plasma is the liquid remaining after milk has been curdled and strained. In order to curdle milk in a factory, there needs to be a process similar to what occurs in a baby cow’s stomach when it feeds on its mother’s milk. The most accurate way to mimic this process is to use the actual digestive enzymes from the calves stomach. The name for this enzyme is Rennet. Natural rennet is produced in the inner mucosa of the fourth stomach chamber (the abomasum) of young ruminants (A ruminant is any hooved animal that digests its food in two steps, first by eating the raw material and regurgitating a semi-digested form known as cud, then eating the cud, a process called ruminating. Ruminants include cattle, goats, sheep, llamas, giraffes, bison, buffalo, deer, wildebeest, and antelope). Rennet is derived one of the following two ways: 1. Dried and cleaned stomachs of young calves are sliced into small pieces and then put into saltwater, together with some vinegar or wine to get a lower pH. After some time – overnight or several days – this solution has to be filtered. This crude rennet can then be used for coagulation of the milk.Deep-frozen stomachs are milled and put into an extracting solution- in this solution the enzymes are extracted. The crude rennet extract is then activated by adding acid – the enzymes in the stomach are produced in an inactive pre-form and are activated by the stomach acid. After neutralisation of the acid, the rennet extract is filtered in several stages and concentrated until reaching the required potency. Cheese is produced with casein, a substance that breaks down, when digested by humans, into several chemicals including casomorphine, an opiate. Cheese is (and, to a lesser extent, other dairy products are) therefore suspected by some to play a role in behavioral disorders among children, especially with regards to autism. As you probably know, a key component of cheese is bacteria or mold. A number of food safety agencies around the world have warned of the risks of raw-milk cheeses. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration states that soft raw-milk cheeses can cause “serious infectious diseases including listeriosis, brucellosis, salmonellosis and tuberculosis”. It is U.S. law since 1944 that all raw-milk cheeses (including imports since 1951) must be aged at least 60 days. Australia has a wide ban on raw-milk cheeses as well. Some even say that pasteurization of the milk used to make cheese does not ensure its safety. This is supported by statistics showing that in Europe (where young raw-milk cheeses are still legal in some countries), most cheese-related food poisoning incidents were traced to pasteurized cheeses.

Don’t give a crap about your body?   How about planet earth? The 2006 UN report on climate change found that methane emission from cows (raised for meat and milk) was a greater contributor to global warming than all forms of transportation combined. Cars, trucks, trains, boats AND airplanes.     A vegan in a Hummer leaves less of a carbon footprint than a meat eater on a bicycle.

Think you need to lose your cheese to lose dairy?   YEA RIGHT!! Who could live without pizza?   Not us. Read our last blog on the best ever dairy-free cheeses here: http://girliegirlarmy.com/blog/20090311/praise-cheeses/.

Need to see it with your own eyes?   Rent/buy EARTHLINGS on DVD (with Joaquin Phoenix), or the HBO documentary “Death on a Factory Farm” tonight!   You are too smart to be buying the shit the dairy industry is trying to sell you.   Remember, the meat and dairy industries are powerful and very wealthy.   They would keep you eating diseased meats and bi-products as long as they could keep themselves on private jets.     Ask the questions, and make your own educated decisions.

Meet your Milks bi-product.

Don’t care about animals?   Well, care enough about yourself to dump dairy once and for all. Katherine Pennington breaks down some of the nutritional myths;

Myth #1: We must drink milk for calcium.

Most of us have been told growing up that we have to drink our milk to have healthy bones and teeth. This myth has inadvertently been told to us by our parents, and reinforced by advertisements and the food pyramid (which, by the way, was created and paid for by the meat and dairy industry indirectly through the USDA.) It is very hard for us to get our hands around the fact that it is purely a myth that you have to drink milk or consume dairy products to get your calcium.

The facts are clear. We can get all the calcium we need from vegetable and grain sources. The calcium contained in these foods is much easier for our bodies to absorb and much healthier for us in the long run. Leafy greens such as kale, spinach, collard and mustard greens have 85-90% of the calcium as in a cup of milk. Additional sources that are high in calcium are broccoli, kelp and seaweed, chickpeas, broccoli, soybeans, tofu, quinoa, fortified-cereals, molasses, sesame and sunflower seeds, and almonds.

Myth #2: We must drink milk to prevent osteoporosis.

Researchers from Yale, Harvard, Penn State, the National Institute of Health and the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine have studied the effects of dairy intake on bones and not one found dairy to be a deterrent to osteoporosis. On the contrary, researchers at Yale found that after looking at thirty-four studies published in sixteen countries that the countries with the highest rates of osteoporosis- including the United States, Sweden and Finland- were those in which people consumed the most milk, meat and other animal foods. A 12-year Harvard study of 78,000 women found that those who drink cow’s milk are more likely to have brittle bones and develop osteoporosis . (“Milk, dietary calcium, and bone fractures in women”, American Journal of Public Health, 1997; 87:992-7.) The study additionally found that those with an increased intake of calcium from dairy were associated with the highest risk of fractures. Ironically, in the countries where people consume the most dairy, there are the highest rates of osteoporosis.

Myth #3: Milk is a good protein source.

While dairy products such as milk, cheese, yogurt, butter and ice cream do provide protein, there is no iron in milk and the dairy blocks the absorption of iron possibly contributing to iron deficiency. Better protein sources are grains such as brown rice and quinoa, tofu, and nuts such as walnuts and almonds.

Do yourself and your body a favor and take dairy products out of your diet! Eat lots of leaf greens, tofu and nuts such as almonds and substitute soy or rice milk in your morning coffee and on your cereal. Substitute soy/ coconut yogurt and soy/ nut cheese for regular cheese, and well – you know what to do with ice cream!

  1. Dairy is filled with puss, blood, pesticides, herbicides, and the list goes on… the ONLY way to go to have a clean, puss & mucus free body is by STOPPING the consumption of dairy!

    Look beyond your-self and recognize the tortured life these animals lead… then do a study on energetics… I guarantee by then you will never touch animal products again!

  2. brook says:

    there’s really nothing you can say about soy ice cream besides “fuck yeah”! i can’t wait to try the soy delicious–and for what it’s worth, trader joe’s vegan ice cream is absolutely delicious! XOXO!

  3. jenni says:

    PURELY DECADENT is AMAZING! My family LOVES it. My son raves that it’s the best ice cream in the universe. :)

  4. Krysta says:

    Um…where’s the controversy? This all seems pretty clear to me. How to argue with all that? I guess some people could say “but I like the taste and don’t care about cows”.

    So you could have padded this with the environmental destruction the dairy industry is causing, as well as the human labor violations rampant at factory farms.

    God…no wonder the dairy industry needs multi million dollar ad campaigns to get people to keep buying this junk.

  5. Mitra says:

    Scoops in LA is the go to for delicious Vegan ice cream! They have atleast 2 vegan flavors a day – Delicious!

  6. Emily says:

    OMG Thanks for the post…Summer is around the corner and these are gonna be great for a cool down. Plus the free topping at Lula’s is the bomb! Thanks Chloe! xoxo

  7. Leanne Maily says:

    mmm, well said, sweet thing! is that lula herself? totally adorable!

    My fav is vegan owned and operated chicagosoydairy.com’s TEMPTATION vegan ice cream, from my boys Ryan and Dan– available in lots of Whole Foods and restaurants too. Fair trade green tea is my favorite! but we windy city girls go crazy for chocolate chip cookie dough too & espresso vegan milk shakes at the Chicago Diner! YUM…

    :)

  8. liskula says:

    Now that I am fully grossed out, after just purchasing the Costco sized yogurt…I don’t know what to do…I love dairy, I hate the thought of it, I eat meat, but i could never cook it myself. I am in a constant battle with myself. I have sleepless nights after reading this stuff about all of gods creatures and critters, but at the same time, I think I would disappear if I tried to maintain a Vegan diet…I am so skinny as is… What is a skinny bitch supposed to do?

  9. chloejo says:

    Skinny Minny: You will not disappear if you go veegs. You can just do nut based milks which have plenty of (good) fats, so you will maintain your weight without the cholesterol and cancer causers. I have plenty of formerly tiny friends (pre veganism) who maintain their pre-veganism weight without any thought whatsoever. The only difference is their health (no colds, no sore throats, etc). I’ll have some really skinny gals chime in here on this one.

  10. But I LOVE bloody, pus-swirl ice cream with hormone chunks. :(

    Lula’s is fantastic! Coconut-based ice cream could be the most indulgent and amazing treat ever. I dream about it.

  11. Rachel says:

    Great blog-post! Totally thoughtful and comprehensive. I’ll definitely be passing this along.

    I love Lula’s with a passion. Their icecreams are so good and they are so nice.

    Purely Decadent also has incredible flavors. My favorite is Coconut Craze.

  12. Shirly Weiss says:

    LOVE LOVE LOVE that your top image features coconut milk based ice cream vs soy based ice cream… Soy is unfortunately too questionable for too many women with even slightly compromised thyroids or hormonal issues.

    & for those not quite ready to give up dairy yet… PLEASE at least switch to RAW dairy from your local farmer’s market that comes from HAPPY, HEALTHY COWS raised in clean happy pastures.

  13. Chrissie Eden Vazquez says:

    Not related to ice cream but to dairy in general, I hear a lot about the diary industry–but specifically cow’s milk only. What about the production of goat cheese and other goat milk products, especially from the smaller farms you can find in upstate NY and in VT?

  14. Chloe Jo says:

    Oh sweet readers, I wish I could make you feel good about Dairy consumption, I REALLY do – but there are no “Happy COWS”! Working cows are not happy cows. And I’ve seen footage inside what are considered the best organic dairy farms and it’s not pretty. Just go vegan. It’s better for everyone. All it takes is a little effort. Aren’t the animals worth it? Isn’t your bod worth it? I HIGHLY recommend reading this site for those interested in humane milk/ meat: http://www.humanemyth.org/

  15. I’m so in love with Lulu’s – a girl’s best friend (and yes this is coming from a personal trainer – hey I eat dessert too!)

    Trader Joes has AMAZING soy ice cream…top with a banana and some walnuts and voila, heaven!

  16. Liskula- I once thought there would be no way to get fat if I were vegan, but I live now in a world ABUNDANT with too delicious things, plenty of which are calorie rich! Most all my friends are vegan and while we all look great and stay slim with much less effort than any meat or dairy eater, none of us is wasting away. Trade that costco bucket of nasty stolen from some beautiful mamma for yummy coconut or soy based yogurt. And a few nuts go a long way if you need to maintain weight.

    Goats- are angels from heaven who suffer in dairy farms. Their babies are taken, and maternal goats, like cows, grieve piteously over the loss. They face a gruesome, violent death when their production wanes. Dairy is for baby animals, it is terrible for people and simply criminal to mom and baby animals!

  17. Jason says:

    Not a skinny gal, but I am a skinny guy. Prior to becoming vegan, I had digestive issues that kept me VERY underweight. Dairy makes some people fat, but for others (like me), it did the opposite. My body REJECTED dairy, and in its rejection, it rejected everything else I consumed as well. Strangely, I thought stomachaches were “normal” sometimes (as my mother had them ALL the time).

    Liskula, you won’t waste away. You’ll be eating the kinds of foods you’re supposed to eat, and you’ll find that your body (especially if you eat a balanced vegan diet and exercise, too) will regulate itself. As such, I actually gained weight when I went vegan. I even gained muscle, which I thought was impossible. I’m still quite thin, but not Mary-Kate-circa-2005 thin. At 128 pounds now (5’8″), I’m like Madonna-Sticky-and-Sweet-Tour thin (thin with muscle tone).

    On the other side, I’ve seen a very good friend lose 30 pounds by going vegan. You see, removing the meat and dairy from your diet will help you be where you need to be. It’s not going to make you scary skinny, and you’re not going to get obese, either; you’ll end up EXACTLY where you need to be.

  18. joelle says:

    There isnt a better ice cream on the planet, vegan or not, than purely decadent with coconut milk!

  19. Ari Solomon says:

    Chloe — Thanks once again for another amazing piece. Anyone who considers themselves a feminist should be horrified at the exploitation dairy cows endure. It’s disgusting.

  20. Andrea says:

    Thanks for this, Chloe. You’ve been an inspiration as I have made some changes in my diet – which was fairly healthy but not perfect. I did the master cleanse in January to reset my body.

    I lost 13 lbs in 10 days (which stayed off) and lost all cravings. Therefore, I was able to cut out wheat and most dairy out of my diet. Before that, I never thought I could give up cheese.

    I feel so much better now. My mind is calm and my energy levels are higher. I haven’t gotten sick since I cut out wheat and dairy.

  21. Bhujanga says:

    FYI, all Stogo flavors are sugar-free. They’re sweetened with either agave nectar or brown rice syrup.

  22. kimsy says:

    I love dairy-free ice cream :) I just made a delicious banana milkshake out of some Soy Delicious, soymilk, and ice cubes (and a banana, of course :) ). Cruelty-free and yummers, doesn’t get any better than that!

  23. Lyndsey Cooper says:

    Hey Chlo,

    We dont eat much dairy either! Milk has almost zero nutrional value. My son Jaxson drinks almond milk and loves loves. Also milk is so hard to digest, and awful on the body. My husband Matthew does something called Enzyme Therapy which we use in our diet because digestive enzymes are taken out of food to help preserve it longer!
    thanks for the info!
    XOXO miss ya

  24. Nityda says:

    This is a great post! And in reference to myth #2, about dairy preventing osteoporosis: the Standard American Diet (SAD), which is high in animal protein, can be held accountable for the overwhelming percentage of American women over age 65 that develop osteoporosis each year. Too much protein prohibits the absorption of calcium. So trying to get calcium from milk is a losing battle. Milk, eggs and dairy are acid-forming foods; when consumed, the body draws Ca from the bones to balance the pH level in the body (if our blood becomes too acidic we will die). The unabsorbed Ca is expelled through the urine, and very often produces high Ca levels in the kidney system, resulting in kidney stones. Almond, rice, soy, hemp, oat and hazelnut milks taste wayyyy better anyway!
    And by the way, the chocolate peanut butter swirl coconut milk ice cream should not be eaten alone….you may just eat the whole container in one sitting, but that’s another story!

  25. Lauren says:

    Lula’s is hands down the BEST vegan ice cream i have ever tasted! if i was wearing a hat right now it would go off to Blythe and Derek for their genius creations!

  26. Franni says:

    oooooo, i really want some vegan ice cream right now ^-^ and drinking milk from an animal is just gross. Milk is for babies people!! Cow’s milk is for cows, goat milk is for goats, camel milk is for camels and etc. GO VEGAN!!

  27. themessenger says:

    If I could live on this stuff I would. Well, I practically do.

  28. Love this post! You’re awesome!!!

    And, I’m CRAZY for Coconut Bliss’ organic, vegan ice cream… and of course, I make my own homemade Organic Raw Vegan ice cream all the time – doesn’t get any healthier than that!

    Cheers,
    Kristen

  29. Jay says:

    http://www.NotMilk.com is also a great site to know what kind of grossness you can get from consuming dairy.

  30. Jay says:

    @liskula: I have never met a skinny vegan or vegetarian. Eating healthy means you can eat more, and won’t get insanely fat like if you were to eat pig every day or horse or cow or chicken or fish.

    As long as you eat everything you should (nutrition-wise), you won’t “waste away”.

  31. As a dairy farmer this blog makes me sad and angry at the same time. I am terribly sorry that you and your readership have been misled about the truth about dairy farms. Please feel free to visit my blog as well as the following websites:

    http://www.dairyfarmingtoday.org

    http://www.3aday.org/Pages/Welcome.aspx

    For the TRUTH about dairy.

    Please remember we respect your right not to eat meat, please respect our right to raise meat and milk for those who do….we care deeply about our animals, more than most care for their pets…the success of our business depends on it.

  32. Emily says:

    i just went to 3aday.org and it is complete propaganda!! SCARY.

  33. Orange Patch Dairy said:
    “Please remember we respect your right not to eat meat, please respect our right to raise meat and milk for those who do we care deeply about our animals, more than most care for their pets the success of our business depends on it.”

    What a joke! How is eating meat and raising dairy cows a “right”?

    What about the right of a mother to feed her own baby her breast-milk instead of people like you stealing it and creating something as terrible as the veal industry.

    I have said this som many times that I get sick of it: This is NOT a personal choice issue. It’s not about me and you and our mutual differences of opinion. I wish it were. There is a third-party (the animals) whose perspective you insist on ignoring.

    How does this sound:

    “Please remember we respect your right not use child labor, please respect our right to use them for people who do want cheap, sweatshop goods we care deeply about our children, more than most care for their pets the success of our business depends on it.”

    What’s the problem here, you ask? The perspective of the third-party is being ignored for the sake of making money.This for of logic has been used to justify just about every form of oppression throughout history, and you are no exception. But I don;t expect to convince you (because money is to be made!) but I do plan to expose your flawed logic and unwillingness to consider animals’ perspectives as valid.

  48. Beth says:

    I think it’s VERY irresponsible to claim that dairy’s “known side effects (in humans” include breast and ovarian cancer. This is simply not scientifically proven. The leading cancer research organization in Europe has the latest scientific evidence regarding a POSSIBLE ASSOCIATION between dairy and certain cancers. Please see: http://www.cancerresearchuk.org/cancer-help/about-cancer/cancer-questions/does-milk-cause-cancer for a responsibly written article on this topic. I’m not trying to defend dairy, I simply care about integrity in reporting research and presenting the most accurate information to the public.

    I really enjoy reading this blog but as a public health scientist when I see misinformation that glaring I am really turned off.
