To test out The Vegan Scoop [by Wheeler del Torro], I made the dairy-free chocolate and vanilla ice creams, using organic ingredients in my old Donvier ice cream maker. It turned out great; creamy, rich, decadent! Wheeler’s recipes are clear, concise, and easy to follow.
For a real ice cream parlor touch, I scooped the chocolate homemade ice cream into cones, and garnished with Sprinkelz (aka Jimmies in the NE). To mix things up you can use Edward and Sons organic sugar cones, cake-style ice cream cup cones, or organic gluten-free cones. [There are also cone recipes in The Vegan Scoop should you feel adventurous!]
You can tell from the photo that the ice cream is dark and rich. One of the things that I like about Wheeler’s recipes is that they call for only 3/4 cup of sugar to yield one quart of ice cream. The ice cream is sweet but not cloyingly so.
