Review

These recipes are totally out of control! Veganism has never been so fun, easy, and innovative--Rory Freedman--The Vegan Scoop will forever change the way you think about ice cream. In Wheeler Del Torro's hands, vegan ice cream is not only far more nutritious than traditional ice cream, but more delicious and outrageously varied. This book is an absolute must-have for ice cream aficionados everywhere--Dr Will Tuttle--As luscious as the recipes themselves, this cookbook puts vegan ice cream on the map and leaves its animal-based counterpart in the dust. Vibrant, fun, and full of factoids, The Vegan Scoop is pure bliss--Colleen Patrick-Goudreau--This is the ultimate book of dairy-free dessert. Bursting with innovative flavour combinations, tasty toppings, and irresistabel accompaniments, expert ice-cream maker Wheeler Del Torro has created a true masterpiece with The Vegan Scoop. I'd like a scoop of everything, Please!--John Robbins--This is the best thing ever to happen to vegan ice cream! The enticing flavours and colourful pictures are impossible to resist--Jennifer McCann--At last, ice-cream worth screaming about for 'Sundae' and every day! Chock-full of animal-friendly recipes, the Vegan Scoop offers a double -dollop of delight --Carol J Adams<br /><br />brings the pleasures of the ice cream parlour into your home, with 150 recipes for frozen treats that are so rich and creamy they're better than the real thing! These ice-creams feature vegan ingredients, making them suitable for both vegans and those with lactose intolerance. Cahpters are devoted to innovative flavour 'inspirations' and two chapters full of recipes for toppings, sauces, and other dessert accompaniments. --Vegan Views, Sept 2009<br /><br />The Vegan Scoop hosts low calorie, high flavor, easily made recipes for all to enjoy. Ingredients are vegan, have zero cholesterol, and contain 16 times less fat than some commercial dairy ice creams. They're also wonderful for the lactose-intolerant. Divided into Classic, Caribbean and Island, Healthy, Asian, Novelty, and Aphrodisiacal flavors, the close up photos give the preparer an ideal look at the finished products. Each dessert recipe lists the health benefits of taking big licks (ie. Pomegranate Grapefruit--Heart Health). Buzz Words: chile, fig, soy, vegan, arrowroot, fresh, dragon fruit, goji, acai, lychee, curry, eucalyptus, ginseng, lemongrass Recipes to die for: Bubblegum (my kids would love this!) Fruit Sushi (eaten with Wasabi ice cream) Cinnamon Ginkgo Sweet Ginger Tea (eaten with Fried Asian Pancakes) Recipes yield 1 quart, call for a standard ice cream maker, and have accompanying mini recipes for toppings, sauces, and sides. Wheeler has included a Tips and Techniques page for the ice cream maker (very beneficial for the novice). --Basil and Spice dot com, Sept 2009...The Vegan Scoop is divided into nine sections:Classic Flavors (Vanilla, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Black Raspberry, Caramel) Fruity Flavors (Blueberry, Plum, Date) Healthy Flavors (Cinnamon Ginkgo, Yam, Orange Dragon Fruit) Asian Flavors (Black Sesame, Thai Chile Chocolate, Seaweed) Caribbean and Island Flavors (Orange Passion Fruit, Ginger Beer Sorbet, Ginger Lychee) Novelty Flavors (Peanut Butter Cucumber (no, I didn t miss a comma in there), S more, New York Irish Cream, Jalapeño) Aphrodisiacal Flavors (Lavender, Rose Water, Pumpkin and Oats) Ice Cream Vessels and Sauces Ice Cream Sides and Desserts In addition, there s a very helpful introductory chapter on how to construct your own unique flavors in case you ve been itching to try a Basil Carob Rhubarb ice cream. A true measure of a cookbook is in how often it gets used. The fact we have made six quarts of ice cream in the last month-and-a-half should give some indication of how much we re digging the book around here thusfar. -- --vegblog dot com, Sept 2009

Wow, this is a delicious book full of yummy ice cream that is vegan. Healthier than the dairy alternative, you should quickly get hooked on these ice-creams. My only complaint is that as the recipes are all based on the same ingredients with just the flavourings being different, I was unsure of the need to repeat the basic recipe each time. Well worth experimenting with this book and coming up with some favourite personal recipes too. 238 pages of clearly designed recipes that are easy to follow accompanied by pics of the mouth-watering ice-creams. --kaern platt reveiws, december, 2009

You won t grow tired of the options and the old favorites will be new again. And, honestly, you may not buy another store-bought ice cream again. --vegblog dot com, Sept 2009

5.0 out of 5 stars Yummy Recipes that could fool non-vegans 14 Aug 2009
Format:Paperback
I bought this book because I love, or rather loved, ice-cream before I realised I was lactose intolerant. And after many years of only having swedice glace (lovely but plain), boooja booja (tasty but expensive) or sorbet (not ice cream!!) this book is a welcome relief.

It has a huge range of recipes that will cater for most tastes. Chapter includes classic, fruity, asian, caribbean, healthy and novelty flavours.

My parter who is not lactose intolerant agrees that the recipes I've made (no less than 6 in the 2 weeks I've owned it) do have a texture and taste similar to non vegan ice cream (where there is non vegan equivalent).

My favourite so far is honeydew (as in honeydew melon).

Just 2 points to mention here:

All recipes rely on the use of an ice cream maker, unless you are skilled enough to make ice cream without the ice crystals.

For those of you who would like a non vegan version of strawberry ice cream there is NO strawberry recipe in here. There is fig, banana (yummy), orange (yummy), pumpkin (next on the list to try), star fruit but no strawberry :(

But the many other recipes more than make for this. Buy it whether your vegan or not.

4.0 out of 5 stars Looks great 30 Dec 2009
By Mandy
Format:Paperback
Recipes look wonderful, but what on earth is "divided soy milk"? I've searched and searched and can't find it anywhere.

Added later - aha! it means the total amount of soy milk, divided up so that you use one bit first, the rest later. Duh.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hungry Girl with a sweet tooth. 5 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback
Icecream and cheese were the two things that really made me reconsider a vegan lifestyle change. This book has such delicious recipes. I've just made a yummy chocolate brownie with vanilla icecream and some chocolate sauce and it is so good. My husband had to ask twice if it was vegan. Alpro soya single cream is available everywhere in the UK, Tesco, Waitrose, Asda, Sainsburys...etc. It usually runs about 0.74 and you need 2 for most recipes. I'm not a huge fan of soy milk in general, but soya single cream is completely different. There isn't an after taste like you get with plan unsweetened soya milk. I use the soya creamer in lots of dishes as a substitute for single cream as it's so much healthier for you. Even when I make meat dishes. It's great in stroganoff and white pasta sauces and creamy mac n' cheese.

This book is a lifesaver. It really opened my eyes to see that you can have a decadent vegan diet that isn't costly on you waistline, pocket or conscience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book and easy to make 2 May 2014
By Natz
Format:Paperback
As with most of the reviews here its so nice to make you're own vegan ice cream in a variety of flavours. The basic recipe is the same each time so you choose which flavour you fancy making on the day! The ingredients are UK friendly and I have made the mint choc chip, almond, rose water, chocolate and blueberry ice creams so far. They are better than Swedish Glace (variety of flavours and their blueberry is so chemical tasting!) or Booja Booja (texture).

Instead of soy creamer which is needed in the recipes I use 2 cartons of Blue Dragon Coconut Cream - much thicker than soya cream so gives you a really thick ice cream consistency without ice crystals forming and the coconut flavour doesn't overpower. You can get these cartons in the Chinese food section of all supermarkets next to the other Blue Dragon products and a real find for this and for vegan afternoon tea (it's amazing on scones with jam). I also leave the mixture to chill in the fridge overnight rather than 2-3 hour suggested, which also makes it thicker.

The book is well written, easy to follow and I would recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing tasty book. 26 May 2013
By mavis
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I can't eat a lot of dairy products, so I was looking for a dairy
Free ice cream book as I had been given an ice cream maker for
My birthday. I stumbled across this and boy what a find.
First off most of the ingredients you can get in UK like
The soya creamer which is soya cream sold in every
Supermarket in the free from isle. Secondly the ice creams taste
Far better than ordinary ice cream. Friends and work mates can't tell the different between dairy and non dairy they seem to love the non dairy more. The cider ice cream was a big hit so I am going to serve this at my forthcoming 40 birthday party. Enjoy the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Recipes 3 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bougth this book to give me some innovation for cold pudding recipes rather than just fruit or fruit puddings. The recipes are easy to understand but some of the ingredients aren't English friendly. I have made some minor changes and added my favourite ice cream additions. Overall thought very good.
