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 ‚€œreal‚€? thing‚€”and contain one-third the calories!


Developed by vegan hipster Wheeler del Torro of Wheeler‚€™s Frozen Desserts, these ‚€œfaux‚€? 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 ‚€œinspirations,‚€? 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
