The Vegan Scoop brings the pleasures of the ice cream parlor into your home with 150 recipes for delicious frozen desserts that are so rich and creamy, they're better than the "real" thing--and contain one-third the calories!

Developed by vegan hipster Wheeler del Torro of Wheeler's Frozen Desserts, these "faux" creams feature 100 percent vegan-certified ingredients, making them suitable for both vegans and those with lactose intolerance and other dairy aversions. And with each serving containing approximately 80 calories--nearly 100 calories fewer than a serving of traditional ice cream--you can indulge with peace of mind (and keep your trim waistline!).

Chapters are devoted to innovative flavor "inspirations," and cover everything from Caribbean & Island Flavors to Healthy Flavors and Aphrodisiacal Flavors. You'll also find two chapters full of recipes for toppings, sauces, sides, and other dessert accompaniments.

Recipes include:

Peanut Butter Banana

Black Sesame

Chocolate Marshmallow

Almond Cookie

Orange Passion Fruit

Granola Crunch

Pecan Apple Danish

Espresso Bean

Vanilla Graham Cracker
and hundreds more!

It has soy in every recipe. Stay clear of this one!

It is my favorite of the non-dairy/Vegan ice cream books. I find it easy to use and modify to try new flavors or adjust for allergens.

This would be a fantastic book if you had an ice cream maker of some kind. Thye author also details toppings and provides instructions for 'containers' such as waffle cones and brownies. Everything from vanilla to wasabi. Written by an expert.
