Recommends it for: vegans with a sweet tooth
Shelves: cooking, veggie
Loved the *ideas* in this book - so many amazing flavor mixtures! - but the processing just didn't jive with my ice cream maker... so, I will use it more for a flavor inspiration book, and then process in my own way (the way described in Veganomicon and using my VitaMix instead of heating the ingredients as described in this book). Each of the ice cream recipes in this book take a number of hours to make - at least three with cooling times. I prefer my method which is MUCH faster. However, I thi ...more

I kid, I kid - but just about the last part. In all seriousness, The Vegan Scoop really is a personal favorite. I love everything about this cookbook: the gorgeous, glossy pages. The luscious, lovingly-photographed balls of frozen deliciousness. The easy-to

Vegan ice cream and vegan sorbet, what's not to love?

Many of the ice cream recipes in The Vegan Scoop have a soy milk base but the author encourages experimenting with other non-dairy milks such as almond. You will need an ice cream maker, but if you don't have one what a perfect excuse to buy one. Chapters include : Classic with flavors as Vanilla, Toffee, and Cookie Dough; Fruit Flavors with Watermelon Sorbet and Honeydew; Healthy Flavors with Vanilla Chile Pepper, and Peanut Butter Flaxseed;

I haven't made any of the recipes yet; so I can't comment on the texture and taste of finished ice cream. But I like the author's ideas for flavors. Since I'm more familiar with using coconut milk as a base instead of soy milk plus arrowroot, I might just use the flavor ideas instead of the recipe for the ice cream bases.

UPDATE 9/2013: I have now made a recipe from the book, the one for the Maple Walnut flavor. I have a sweet tooth and I'm not THAT person who says, "Oh, X is so sweet I could onl

We made the coffee ice cream yesterday and it was fantastic. Soooo much better than So Delicious.We added chocolate shavings and stiffened up in the ice cream maker faster than cow's milk ice cream (which we were making only last year-so much has changed!)I love this book so far and look forward to the other recipes! Butter Pecan! New York Irish Cream! Pistachio! Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl! Almond Cookie!
I've made a few recipes from this book, and while they all tasted great, the consistency and texture are lacking, which may be my cheap ice cream maker or I need a better/different technique, like one reviewer mentioned. Simple recipes, but lots of different flavour combinations.

Pretty much all of these recipes are the base with minor adjustments to flavors. Any of the recipes I tried, I didn't really like the taste or texture. Worth looking at if you borrow the book. I also noted a few errors in measurements in recipes.
Every recipe includes the same 3 ingredients - arrowroot flour, soy creamer, soymilk. This can get really annoying if one can't find a supermarket that carries arrowroot flour and is trying to make ice cream for someone who is allergic to soy.

Interesting flavor ideas - haven't tried any of them yet. Also, I enjoyed the little factoids in the margins.

Good vanilla recipe. Almost every other recipe is a variation on this basic formula, which I suppose is as it should be... Gave plenty of fodder for new flavors, ingredients, and combinations.

Mostly variations on a basic recipe, but the combinations sound great. I've already made two batches of dairy free ice cream, and can't wait to make more!

Good for those accustomed to dairy alternatives. Not good for those allergic to coconut, which the favorite milk.

I don't have an ice cream maker and am too lazy (and not into ice cream enough) to make it manually, so I've only made the waffles from this cookbook - they are delicious.

Had a lot of issues with the recipes. Each one I tried had an issue with ingredient amounts or the recipe not working out.
