31 Down, 21 To Go "The Vegan Scoop " (52 Books, 52 Weeks)

Vegan ice cream may seem an oxymoron, but The Vegan Scoop proves that soy (and almond) milk and cream can make a viable substitute for their bovine counterparts. The book is not limited to ice cream, sorbet and gelato recipes are also plentiful, and the recipes themselves are flavorful and many are packed with nutritious ingredients. The savory selections (including wasabi and tarragon) were the biggest surprises, and the book is filled with many healthy (much less fat and calories) vegan alternatives to milk-based ice cream. The recipes for brownies and toppings proved a welcome bonus, but the ice cream recipes here are the stars.

I have set this book next to our venerable (and well-thumbed) Ben & Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream & Dessert Book, and plan to make it a dessert recipe resource for years to come.

For one month, enter the coupon code "LHB001" at Atomic Books and receive 15% off this title.

My next book is Food for Thought. Thought for Food, by Ferran Adria.
