Unbelievable flavor variety, mostly soy-free and gluten-free, plus many low-fat options. Every recipe includes an enticing photo.

Alisa Fleming ~ Baklava, Blueberry Muffin, Buttery Popcorn, French Toast, Tiramisu, White Chocolate … what do all of these foods have in common? They are all flavors in the amazing new ice cream recipe book, Vegan A La Mode by Hannah Kaminsky.

Really, I don’t even need to review this un-cookbook. I could simply post up all of the recipe titles and 99% of you would probably buy it immediately! I only wish I’d had the chance to review Vegan A La Mode earlier in the summer, but as this ice cream book proves, ice cream is definitely a year ‘round dessert.

If you aren’t familiar with Hannah, and her blog Bittersweet, then I should forewarn that nothing she creates is ordinary. Vegan A La Mode isn’t simply filled with original vegan recipes, it’s got ice cream flavors that you won’t see in any other cookbook, vegan or not! And, the variety doesn’t stop there. Beyond the flavors, Hannah uses a range of different ice cream bases to create creamy textures, including nuts, rice, and coconut milk. To note, many of the recipes in this book are made with simple, easy to find, non-dairy milk, so they are optionally soy-free and low fat, too!

Of course, Hannah takes gorgeous photos of every recipe, too. Here is a little teaser of what’s inside …
